Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – The Group Gift Approach to Getting an All-Occasion Men’s Wardrobe

Although men’s clothing and special offers are not nearly as common as they are for women in SL, you can get yourself outfitted nicely for almost any occasion if you are a member of the right store groups.  I’ve got three group gifts to show you that will allow you to go from casual everyday all the way to formal, and they won’t cost you a Linden.

First off, let me show you the May group gift from Ydea – it’s still available on Ydea’s giant wall of past gifts and the group is free to join.  This tee and pair of shorts is for fans of the U.S. television show “The Walking Dead,” but you don’t have to have zombie skin in order to wear it.  The outfit includes the mesh t-shirt, mesh shorts, and a very versatile pair of casual boots that could be worn with lots of different outfits.

For slightly more dressy occasions you can stop by Gizza Creations which recently put out it’s June group gift.  Like Ydea, Gizza keeps its old group gifts available for quite some time after new ones are put out, so you can expect to be able to pick this one up even if you don’t get there today.  This outfit features a blue jacket layer polo shirt with sculpted rolled sleeves and color, and mesh denim jeans with belt included.  My shoes are formal slip-ons, the June group gift at sf design.  There’s a small group joining fee, but certainly worth it for the steady stream of group gifts and the discounts on new items offered at sf design.  I don’t know how far into July these shoes will be available free to group members, so hurry on over to get them soon if you’re interested.

And finally, for those occasions when only formal wear will do, try the Prestigious tuxedo in midnight blue by 69 Park Ave., which is available through July 3 as the group gift.  This formal tuxedo outfit can be worn in several ways.  I’m showing it here with a vest and short flexi bottom to the jacket.  The shirt-layer vest can be removed so that you can wear just the formal shirt under the jacket.  In addition, there is a jacket collar that includes a long white formal scarf, and there is a long flexi jacket bottom that is lined in white satin for very formal occasions.  All of these possibilities give you lots of style options.

And there you have it – a range of wardrobe basics you can get for free from group gifts.  Enjoy!
