Take another gander at our holiday gift guides that include the perfect Holiday Gifts For Him & For Her.
Gifts for Him:
Gifts for Her:
We've given away alot of stuff so far, but today is one of our favorites… it's The American Made Giveaway. Two of our favorite American companies Duluth Pack and Stormy Kromer are giving away something. And the BEST thing about both of these companies is that all of their items have LIFETIME guarantees. So like I stated in our last posting about Duluth Pack… when your vintage-loving great grandchild decides he wants to go through your closest 50 years from now, he can send it in for a free replacement/repair if needed — now that's a warranty.
Stormy Kromer was founded by George "Stormy" Kromer– who was a semi-pro baseball player and railroad engineer. After playing for several baseball teams in the midwest he worked for the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad, and would take long, cold trips across the plains. As stated on their website, "Stormy was an engineer, and to see where he was headed, he had to stick his head out the window — into the wind. Mother Nature stole his cap more than once, and as the story goes, he set out to get her back. In 1903, he asked Ida (his wife and an excellent seamstress) to modify an old baseball cap to help keep it on in windy weather. The all-cloth cap with the soft, canvas visor was a departure from the traditional fedoras of the day, but it was more comfortable and because of it's six-panel fit, it stayed put. Soon other railroad workers wanted one of Stormy Kromer's caps for themselves, and when Ida could no longer keep up with demand, they hired a few employees and the business was born."

And you should know all about Duluth Pack by now, if you don't learn more here. The scout pack is one of our favorite bags because it's classic, has history, and is different from the usual backpacks/rucksacks we see these days. This would make for a great Christmas gift to someone, so be sure to purchase a bag or two here. (order by Wednesday so you can receive the bag by Christmas Eve).
2 readers will be chosen today. To win you must comment on this post, comment on our Facebook, and/or re-tweet on Twitter. Link to us on your Facebook/Twitter pages, and tell all your friends and associates.
Today's winner will receive a holiday red scout pack. And remember our talks of the grand prize last Friday (that includes several items)? Well, Duluth Pack will be giving away one of their classic utility packs in the color of your choosing. So get ready for that…
You know how we love to have the "fun giveaways" on Fridays… So today, we have cellphones. I know you're probably like, "where does this stop… you guys have EVERYTHING, this is amaaaazing!" Lol, well, thank you, you're amazing too, and it does not stop for now. And today, yes, we're actually giving away phones courtesy of Pantech and AT&T.
Urban Gent Review: The Pantech Laser is one of AT&T's newest additions to their lineup — and a quite nice one I may add. The Pantech Laser is indeed touch screen, has the thinnest sliding keyboard on the market (less than 1 inch), and has a display that it quite simply gorgeous – the screen is crystal clear, so everything looks great and is easy to read. The phone's interface is swift and offers alot of customizations/personalization options (I like the classic animated clock). And of course the new Pantech Laser has a music player, camera, video camera, and turn by turn GPS. If you're on the market for a new phone, this just might be the one for you. Watch a demo here and read more details about the key features below:
- Fast 3G connectivity via AT&T's HSDPA/UMTS network (850/1900 MHz bands; 3.6/7.2 Mbps speeds with network availability).
- GPS navigation capabilities via optional AT&T Navigator service includes audible turn-by-turn directions, real-time traffic updates, and re-routing options.

- 3.1-inch touchscreen AMOLED display (480 x 800 pixels, 262K color depth)
- Customizable Menu screens and widgets with three screen menu tabs for contacts, messaging, and favorites.
- Slide-out full QWERTY keyboard
- 3-megapixel camera/camcorder with up to 8x digital zoom
- Multi-format music player compatible with MP3, WMA, and AAC/AAC+ formats
- Bluetooth connectivity includes profiles for communication headset, hands-free car kits, and the A2DP Bluetooth profile–enabling you to wirelessly stream your music to a pair of compatible Bluetooth stereo headphones or speaker dock.
- Memory expansion via microSD card slot with support for optional cards up to 32 GB.
- 150 MB internal memory storage
- Full messaging capabilities including SMS text, MMS picture/video, Mobile E-Mail, and IM instant messaging (via popular services including AOL, Yahoo!, Windows Live Messenger, and Google Talk)

Several years ago, while traveling abroad, Scott James Kuhlman noticed that the great apparel makers of Europe were taking a small-batch, high quality, great value approach to style. He noticed their great attention to fit and details, such as the light wash which gave a slight patina to every garment. Recognizing that this wasn't as prominent in America, Scott James decided to make it his life’s calling to bring a new, unique American take on this European concept, while using the finest European fabrics.
Scott James is giving away two sets (one today and one next week) of clothing that consists of: 100% cashmere sweater ($300), spread collar gingham shirt ($100), and matching pocket square ($50).

Green Giveaway Winners: 1-Stanley Pointer, 2-Cameron Frazier, 3-David Drummond
I know some of our twitter followers were cheering for the cell phone giveaway to be today, but you know we had to have atleast one giveaway that focuses on being green. So for today's giveaway we teamed up with Sutsu, EvolutionMan, and Sport+Store to offer a few giveaways. #GentsGoingGreen
Sutsu is a European founded boarding brand. They cater to all types of boarding: surfing, snow boarding, skateboarding, windsurfing, kite surfing, and… I think that's all the types of boarding?? Their clothing is made from organic cotton and naturally sustainable Bamboo, and it's produced in a carbon neutral factory. So they're pretty damn green.
Sutsu is going to give one lucky reader any t-shirt and sweatshirt from their site. We of course, suggest you keep the neck crew for both.
And you guys should remember our posts on EvolutionMan and Sport+Store, if not check it out here.
EVOLUTIONMAN is giving away: Cleanse & Shave, Moisture Protect SPF20, and Lip Balm
Sport+Store is giving away one of their bottles. If you're an athlete, this will be very convenient for the gym or field or court.
3 readers will be chosen today. To win you must comment on this post, comment on our Facebook, and/or re-tweet on Twitter. SO link to us on your facebook/twitter pages, tell all your friends, and tweet your heart out… today plenty of you will be #winners.
Let us know your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice for prizes.
