Art of Manliness Contests
Last week we ran the Beau Ties Ltd. of Vermont bow tie giveaway . It looks like the bow tie might be coming back in style because there were over 600 of you who entered to win one. Well, we randomly selected a person from the the list of comments and the lucky winner is: Scott Shields. Congratulations Scott! You’ll definitely be looking dapper with your new bow tie. Those of you who didn’t win, but entered, never fret. You’re not walking away empty handed. The gents at Beau Ties Ltd. of Vermont have sent you an email with a 20% discount code. Enjoy!
Art of Manliness T-Shirts
As you may be aware, awhile ago AoM teamed up with Tankfarm Clothing to produce a line of sweet Art of Manliness t-shirts . By popular demand, another color has been added to the line-up. The Bull Moose flag tee can now be had in both white and black. Bully!
Around the Community This Week
The big news out of the Community this week is that thehuhman  became the first member to pass the 4,000 man point mark and earned himself a free Hawaiiabera  shirt. For those of you aren’t a part of the Community, members can earn “man points” by participating. You earn points for posting to the forum, leaving comments for others, uploading videos and photos, and creating groups and events. When you earn 1,000 points you’re eligible for a free AoM T-shirt. When you earn 4,000 points, you’re eligible for the Hawaiiabera shirt. Thehuhman is prolific in the community. He’s done a fantastic job of making everyone feel welcome. The community would not be the same without him. So thanks huhman for all your contributions!
Also, I’d like to thank El Grande Kahuna from Hawaiiabera  for sponsoring the free shirts for our super community members. We really appreciate it. In honor of thehuhman earning the first Hawaiiabera, El Grande Kahuna is giving an exclusive discount code to Art of Manliness subscribers. The code will get you an awesome Hawaiiabera for $39.95 plus FREE shipping. Pretty dang cool. In order to get the code, you must subscribe by RSS or email. The discount code will be at the bottom of the RSS post or email.
In addition to thehuhman kicking butt and taking names in the Community, we had another active week full of great discussions and interesting media uploads related to all things manly. Let’s take a look at some of them.
I’m thinking of starting a podcast . Leave some feedback if you’re interested about what you’d want to hear.
Leo M. Mulvihill has written an excellent series of articles about suits and dressing well. Be sure to check out his tips on:
Suit Buttons 
Quality Men’s Shoes 
Finally, Ryan  started quite possibly the most awesome discussion thread in the history of the community: Time to man up- what would you pick when the zombies come. When the zombie hoards come what would be your 1) main weapon, 2) back up weapon, 3) third weapon, 4) vehicle, 5) person to repopulate earth with or watch your back, 6) theme song, 7) battle cry, and 8) book.
