THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED.
Thanks for entering!
A well-dressed man can’t have too many ties. Just ask Will over at Momentum of Failure. My man is wrapping up his 100 Days of Ties project, in which he wore a tie every day for the past 100 working days. I particularly appreciate his motivation, which essentially is to bring a bit of class to today’s overly-casual sense of style.
I think it’s time for you to do the same, and what better way than to add a fresh new tie to your (hopefully growing) collection?
The folks at Lumina Clothing Company have partnered up with Effortless Gent to provide a super cool giveaway for you.
Have you heard of Lumina?
They’re an awesome outfit with a great story. Back in 2008, the company began by providing bespoke neckwear, but have since expanded into ready-to-wear ties and bow ties. All their products are made here in the good ol’ USA… down in North Carolina. If you haven’t checked them out, I urge you to take a look and see what they have to offer. They’ve got a great selection of neckwear at surprisingly affordable prices.
Think about it: if you’re on the hunt for an awesome tie, why not buy from a few great guys producing quality goods right here in the US? I love when local, small businesses and clothing lines do everything they can to keep all aspects of production here in the US (something Katie and I are proud to say we do with Fifth&Brannan,) and we as healthy consumers should support the home team. You know what I mean?
On to the giveaway
I have one tie and one bow tie to give to you, my awesome readers.
To enter to win, do two things. One, simply subscribe to the Effortless Gent (and don’t worry, EG doesn’t give away your email address or send out spam… ever.) If you’re already a subscriber, perfect! You don’t need to re-subscribe.
Next, leave a comment below and let us know how often you wear a tie. Every day? Only on special occasions? On Fancy Fridays? When your girlfriend makes you?! Your answer won’t necessarily affect your chances of winning, so answer honestly (or dishonestly, I guess, if you so please.)
Two winners will be chosen at random, and the first randomly chosen winner will have his or her choice between the tie and bow tie. Both the winners must be EG subscribers, as well as have left a comment below.
The contest ends on February 1, 2011, at 12:00am Pacific. I’ll announce the winners here, on Facebook, and on Twitter the following Tuesday, February 8, 2011.
That’s it! Good luck to all those who enter!
