We were blown away by the response to the Saddleback Leather Company Briefcase Giveaway . 1,218 of you left comments sharing your briefcase essentials, over 900 joined the Man Bag Group  in the Community, and thousands of you sent emails to your friends. Thanks for your impassioned response. If we could give a Saddleback briefcase  to all of you (and myself!), we would.
But of course, there can only be one winner. And the lucky man who was randomly selected from the entries was Seth Putnam of Carthage, Missouri. Seth is a journalist who spends a lot of time in South America. His new Saddleback Leather briefcase  is the perfect accessory to carry his notebooks and camera into the field. Congratulations Seth!
If you didn’t win the contest, you’re still not walking away empty handed. The folks at Saddleback Leather Company  are offering Art of Manliness readers an exclusive offer. Any reader who makes a Saddleback purchase of $245 or more will receive a FREE small Saddleback Leather wallet . These wallets are made with the same quality materials and craftsmanship as the bags and will last a lifetime. To get your free wallet, add the wallet to your shopping cart along with your other purchases and enter in the code “aom” when you check out. The cost of the wallet will be taken off your total price. The code is good until August 9, so make sure you snap up a bag today!
