Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – Group Gifts for Men at ALB Dream Fashion

Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – Group Gifts for Men at ALB Dream Fashion, originally blogged [HERE]

Although ALB Dream Fashion is well-known in fashion circles for it’s colorful boho-esque designs for women, the second floor of the store has a good collection of casual, fashionable menswear. There is a monthly group gift for men up there, and if you look carefully among the racks in the regular men’s clothing section you’ll see a number of additional group gifts where group members can get one or more of the colors of a regular item for free (it’s easier to spot these hidden gifts if you turn on hovertips in your viewer as you move your cursor across the clothing displays). A word to the wise – each group member is entitled to just one copy of each group gift- so if you accidentally trash something you won’t be ale to get yourself a replacement.

I took myself over to the breathtaking Two Moon Gardens to take some photos of two of these ALB hidden group gifts.  My top is the GIL double vest and shirt. This is a single piece set of mesh garments which comes in several color schemes, though only the burgundy color is free to group members. The black leather back of the vest has an interesting pattern on it. My wife said she thought it looked like a horseshoe crab, but it looks to me like the rear end of a hog with a tail hanging down. Maybe it’s just a wearable Rorschach test. The pants I’m wearing are the NOAM black baggy jeans, one of a couple of colors that are free to group members. My shoes are unisex leather sneakers in white available at Duh! for just $10L.  Altogether the perfect thing for a nice spring walk in the garden.

Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – BRAVO FOR BRAVURA HOMME!

A Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – BRAVO FOR BRAVURA HOMME!

Here’s a quick post to show you two of the group gifts available at a men’s shop I recently discovered.  Bravura Homme has a variety of mesh casual and business wear available at reasonable prices, making it a great place to find wardrobe essentials.  The other good news about Bravura Homme is that the group is free to join and there are generally group gifts from the current and past two months available in the store at any one time.
Bravura - March GG
This first is Bravura Homme’s March group gift, the mesh Paranoia tee shirt and baggy pants which are perfect for stay at home days where you just need something comfortable to hang around in.  If you’d like to add some color to your wardrobe then you should go for the April group gift, the Ice Rose Dress Shirt in camel paired with sand-colored chinos.  A basic pair of tan chinos is a must-have in any man’s wardrobe, and good mesh ones like these normally sell for quite a bit.

Bravura - April GG

The unisex black leather sneakers I’m wearing in these pictures are just one of the many inexpensively priced shoes you can get from FabFree Designer Duh!.  The men’s department is up on the second floor, and you can get almost any kind of shoe you want from sandals to boots to dress shoes for $25L or less.  A package of these sneakers contains pairs in both black and white, and is a steal at just $10L.
