This week, I wanted to announce the winner of our last sweepstakes. I also have a few announcements, one style hack, and one request. Ready?
The Winner Is…
The $1500 Bonobos Wardrobe sweepstakes was our biggest giveaway, pretty much ever. Special thanks to the folks at Bonobos for running that with me.
As always, I hate having only one winner, and I always feel bad I can’t give something to everyone, but I guess that’s the nature of these things. You can blame the folks at Bonobos this time around, since I wasn’t the one to choose
Anyway, the winner of the sweepstakes is: Sean H!
Sean, the Ninjas will contact you about your prize, if they haven’t already.
Thanks to all who entered. I have a few more giveaways planned for this summer, so stay tuned.
Business With Style
I was in Anaheim over the weekend for the first—hopefully annual—Business With Style conference (aka StyleCon? I think we landed on StyleCon as an abbreviation).
It was a great event and I’m happy I got to be part of the inaugural gathering. Pictures and video coming soon, and I’ll link to them once they’re ready.
Just wanted to say thanks to all of you who came by. It was awesome meeting each and every one of you. The venue got a bit crowded towards the end, and if I missed you before I had to leave, so sorry about that! Hopefully next time we’ll be able to chat.
Did you come to the event? I’d love to hear what you thought. Let me know in the comments below.
A Quick Style Shortcut
Totally random, but I wanted to share this style hack with you really quickly.
This style hack involves using Google Image search when you’re stumped with how to pair certain items in your closet. Check out Antonio’s post here.
If you’re looking for an easy way to find and buy individual pieces, you can do so easily from the comfort of your own home by using a site called ShopStyle. I made a quick screencast available to all subscribers in the EG Vault. More here, in case you’re interested.
Two Quick Announcements
1.) I’ll be opening registration to EG’s premium members-only community, the Cladright Association, very soon!
It’s been a long time comin’, and we’re adding new features and courses as we speak. If you want more info on the community, check out cladright.com.
2.) We have a brand new Effortless Gent coming very soon as well!
The site’s had a few cosmetic makeovers throughout the years, but its structure hasn’t been touched since I first went live in 2009. Needless to say, I’m excited to show you guys.
Yes, it will look different, but better, as well as easier to navigate, and easier to find the information you’re looking for. Oh, also, mobile-friendly! Finally. Stay tuned!
Do me ONE small favor
I want to hear from you guys.
In the comments, tell me:
- How can I help? What are you struggling with when it comes to clothes and personal style?
- What articles do you want me to write?
- Do you have any suggestions for videos?
Can’t wait to see your suggestions in the comments below. I read each one and your input is very important to me. After all, I do this for you guys, so I want to make sure I’m creating stuff that you’ll find useful.
Don’t hold back; I take every suggestion into consideration.
Till next week!
