T.U.G Valentine's Day Giveaways: A Pair of TOMS
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).
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.
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).
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.
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.

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).

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.

Many brands have metamorphosed over the past few years, some to their detriment and others to their benefit; Cavi has experienced the latter. Originally starting with slightly baggier and slightly over-logoed clothing, Cavi is now creating clothing with a classic palette which has lead to cleaner, more tailored silhouettes.
Cavi is worn by celebrities like LeBron James, Jeremy Piven, Dwayne Wade, and Will Smith.
Taking on the military and utilitarian trend, Cavi's theme for their Holiday 2010 Collection is based around rescue: air, land, and sea. The collection features winter staples like the shawl-collar sweater, bubbler jacket, and thermal shirt.
Inspiration boards (plus video with Cavi's creative director Garth Cabral) …
