AT&T x The Urban Gentleman Holiday Giveaway

12 Days of Giving #ATTGiftSweeps


We’ve teamed up with AT&T to bring Urban Gentleman readers our first 2015 holiday giveaway #TUGiveaways… a brand spankin’ new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+. Yea bruh… only the best for our loyal TUG fans. AT&T is running a 12 Days of Giving campaign (started Monday) and we’re happy to be apart of it. 

 
To prepare for the giveaway I was able to experience the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, and overall it’s hands down one of the most beautiful phones on the market right now. The gold case, the beautiful screen spilling over like an infinity pool, vibrant colors… seriously, it’s nice.
 
THE REVIEW.  
 
I went snowboarding and skiing in February with a group of friends, one of which is an avid Samsung gadget collector. My friend sported both the Samsung Watch and the Edge. He was showboating a little,  but I had to go ahead and admit that the phone was gorgeous. I'm happy to be able to experience it, see The Urban Gentleman review below:
 
 
LOOKS: Beautiful… the Samsung Galaxy Edge is the infinity pool of phones – it's modern, luxurious, and attractive. The large 5.7 inch HD screen, vibrant color, and clarity are everything… it almost looks 3D. 
 
DURABILITY: I've found Samsung Galaxy's to be very durable in general– my S4 was dropped on several occasions and never cracked. The S6 Edge Plus suffered it's first drop this morning, face down on a granite floor — I'm happy to report it's still pristine. That said, I'm always sure to have a case and screen protector on my phone.

EDGE: The edge feature is the highlight of the phone, hence the name.  My first few days of having the phone I didn't really do much with it, besides admire it of course, lol… then I decided it was time to learn the Edge. With a few back and forth swipe motions you're able to view the time, your alarm, weather, and any notifications you have set up (texts, emails, etc). You're also able to have folder like tabs for your main contacts and apps. 
 
MORE STATS AND FEATURES: The battery changes super fast– fully charged in an hour, for the win! 4GB RAM Memory, Storage in 32GB or 64GB. 16megapixel camera. Mobile wallet – so you can keep your cards at home and just carry your phone. And of course, tons of apps.  
 
 
CHANGES: With all its beauty and perks it doesn't have a removable battery and SD card slot, which is a bit of a bummer. Buuuut that's been standard fair in the world of iPhones for years, so really its not the biggest deal.
 
Overall we're definitely fans of the edge. After visually swimming in an infinity pool, it'll be hard for my fingers to go back to the regular. Check out the AT&T/Samsung Holiday Gift Guide, here. 
 
 
Season of Giving

In the spirit of giving, I was asked to mention an item that I’ve re-gifted. That got me thinking… hmmm, I don’t think I’ve ever re-gifted something, but I’m not opposed to the idea. If the items is worth giving and you’re pretty sure the receiver will be happy then it’s a win. You’ve saved money, you’ve saved time and energy, you cleared up some space, and perhaps reduced your carbon footprint just a little. 

I have a new luxurious chocolate colored cashmere cardigan sweater I was given a couple years ago that’s just sitting in my closet… I think I’ll be re-gifting that this year. What’s your take on re-gifting? Have you ever done it and if so what?


How To Win the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus: Follow us on all social media, repost a link to this article, and comment below on re-gifting. Contest starts Monday, December 7th and will run until Monday, December 14th.

Photobucket

So our Giivaways continue. And this time we're combining charity and style by giving away a pair of TOMS. Yea, it's still kinda cold outside, depending on where you are it may be very cold outside, but Spring will be here before you know it. And when it gets here, you'll be back on your sockless swag and in need of a pair of TOMS. (Every stylish person should have atleast one pair). This can be a Valentine's Day gift for yourself or your sweetheart— guess it just depends on what mood you're in.

**To win you must comment on this post, comment on our Facebook and/or re-tweet on Twitter The more ways you enter the more times you're entered– increasing your chance to win. This giveaway is open to all countries TOMS ships to or has a store, which is alot of countries (all the major ones plus more, check here to see)

We've perused the TOMS website and made our top picks For Him (if you keep the TOMS for yourself) and For Her (if your give the TOMS to her).

Photobucket

Stone-washed Classics. These are from their Spring 2011 collection, and I really like 'em. You know how we've been keepin' it jeaned up, well these will take that trend further by givin' your soles a denim look as well. I'm thinking this is an easy must for Spring/Summer 2011.

Photobucket

Waxed Twill Cordones. I fancy the cordone style TOMS because they offer the choice of shoe-strings or no shoe-strings and look just as good either way. (these come in ash gray (above), black, and chocolate brown).

Photobucket

Black Stone-washed Classics.

Photobucket

There's nothing like a pair of red Toms, they're classic– plain & simple. You can go His & Hers for Valentines Day with this one since they offer the style in both men's and women's. You could pair these with a dozen red roses for V-DAY.

 

Photobucket

Every girl likes to shine, and the Gold Glitter TOMS are an easy way for her to do that. Imagine your girl  in dark denim skinny jeans (hepburn style), white t-shirt, navy blazer, gold watch, simple gold necklace, and her favorite bag. I'm telin' you she'll love these, especially if shoe's a shoe fanatic.

 

Photobucket

And of course she'd love a pink pair. You could pair these with a bouquet of pink and red roses.

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).

Holiday Giveaway #7: Gents Going Green: Sutsu Gear, EvolutionMan, and Sport+Store

Photobucket   

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.
