We here at the Art of Manliness love partnering with the Saddleback Leather Company because we’re both passionate about the same stuff: things that are classic, timeless, made to last, and can be passed down to the next generation. Saddleback channels that passion into making rugged, top quality leather bags, bags that your grandchildren will fight over when you’re dead. Here are the Art of Manliness we’re dedicated to sharing and spreading the virtues, skills, and manners every man should know and which never go out of style.

So we figured it was time to bring together our passions for the timeless and classic things in life.

We’ve had giveaways with Saddleback before, but this is by far our biggest and best. We’ve got multiple ways to enter and multiple prizes up for grabs.

We’ve touted our new book-The Art of Manliness: Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern Man-as a way to take your manliness on the go. The book is full of short sections of essential man knowledge that are easy to read in snatches wherever you travel during the day. But it’s pretty uncomfortable to try to shove the book in your pocket. What you need is a bag, a bag manly enough to carry the world’s manliest book. You need a Saddleback Leather Bag!

Are ready to get your hands on one of these epic leather bags just in time for the holidays?

There are two ways to enter this contest and 3 prizes up for grabs:

  • Grand prize: Limited Edition Art of Manliness/Saddleback briefcase+3 $25 gift cards to the Saddleback online store.
    • How to enter: Submit a photo of yourself in a manly location or doing something manly while reading the Art of Manliness: Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern Man.
  • Second prize: Saddleback laptop case+2 $25 gift certificates to the Saddleback online store.

How to Win

We’ll be judging photos on 1) creativity and 2) quality of work. We want you to have fun with this contest, so let your imagination run wild.

“If you had fought like a man, then you wouldn’t hang like a dog.”

And odd choice of quote for this thread, I’ll grant. Being as it was said by Anne Bonney (a pirate woman) to Calico Jack (a pirate man) on the night before his execution. Hardly the stuff of gentlemen, but these words have value even to those of more refined tastes. In short, don’t cower, don’t give up. And if you fight for a cause, fight to the end.

“Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you’ll live… at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin’ to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take… OUR FREEDOM!”

I love this one, I still get goosebumps during that scene.

I’m not sure I’ll nail the translation from Hungarian, but here you go: “Permanent is not that which resists time, but which wisely changes with it.” (Peter Muller)

509 Chad Walz December 2, 2009 at 8:35 am

One of the most manly and timeless things I can think of are two version of man’s drinking cup, whether is a Double O cut crystal drinking glass, for whisky or scotch while sitting in his chair reading, or something a simple and mundane as a glazed tin cup for drinking coffee on cool mornings out camping, a man needs to intake liquid and how it is done says something. Both of these are timeless and manly for different reasons, which in themselves have qualities of a well taught man. One is utilitarian and will hardly ever break and last for years, while other is refined, classy, interesting yet not over done, and serves its purpose without fail, all of which are important aspects of being a man.

Man to win the grandprize, but I guess I will conform with the Laptop bag, both of which are quite nice.

“Listen, Robert, going to another country doesn’t make any difference. I’ve tried all that. You can’t get away from yourself by moving from one place to another. There’s nothing to that.”

“You don’t want to mix emotions up with a wine like that.” (both, naturally, from the sun also rises)

what a lovely laptop bag – it would be absolutely perfect for my brother (if i can bear not to hold on to it for myself)

542 Patrick Regan December 4, 2009 at 1:22 pm

Man, those are some seriously nice bags. I mean, honestly, it’s so rare to see things that quality these days.

543 Simon December 4, 2009 at 1:39 pm

I’m from Kentucky, and I think our bourbon is a very classy and classic product. If you’re ever around the Louisville/Lexington area you should take a tour of these bourbon producing sites. I’ve been on the Maker’s Mark tour in Loretto KY and the scenery/history/craftsmanship you see is remarkable! There is also a tiny historic toll road house on property with an amazing BBQ sandwich that I HIGHLY recommend.

544 Joe Ouimet December 4, 2009 at 2:21 pm

I have told my kids I only want three things from them:
Be Smart
Be Kind
Love God.

The rest will take care of itself.

549 Chuck December 5, 2009 at 6:38 pm

What the winner of the bag is going to need is a real pen. A bag like that deserves to have something besides a bic carried around in it. My I suggest a nice classic chrome ballpoint from Cross?

550 Handsome Devil December 5, 2009 at 8:25 pm

Love the bags – I’ll be buying a briefcase in the spring. I showed Mrs. Handsome Devil the Saddleback website and she was very impressed.

By the way, “Slap Shot” is *the* classic sports movie.

551 The Thin Man December 6, 2009 at 3:15 am

I dug up my best picture, wrote up a whole narrative then posted for all to see in order to win this prize only to realize I had to have The Art of Manliness in the shot in order to win.
Ha, I guess the joke is on me!

552 Stephen December 6, 2009 at 9:23 am

Death is not an event in life: we do not live to experience death. If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present. (Wittgenstein)

“Cock your hat. Angles are attitudes.” –Frank Sinatra
A simple yet very true little pearl from The Chairman of the Board. Besides numerous images of a hat wearing Sinatra, look at any old image of people like Buffalo Bill Cody, Wild Bill Hickok, John Wayne, James Dean, Al Capone, The Shadow, even Neal Caffrey (the character on the new tv crime drama “White Collar”). These all wore their hats with attitude.

A grandfather clock. My dad and granddad both have one, and they are quite a stately addition to the living room. Not to mention hearing the Westminster chimes became one of the things I remember from growing up!

556 James Milholen December 6, 2009 at 3:20 pm

Timelessness….hms…Something I have found to be a timeless tradition is the decorating of the Christmas tree. Perhaps on an item that is timeless, but for me, year in and year out, regardless of my situation, I have always helped put a a tree at home. We would string the lights and hang the ornaments while watching the Redskins play football.

This year is my first year on my own. I was always home in time to deck the tree while in College, but this year is the first that I won’t even be going home for Christmas. But as I type this, I’m participating in the time honored tradition of decorating the tree. My girlfriend and I went out to a tree lot and found a sturdy Scotch Pine. We’ve strung the lights, and are even now putting on the decorations, while the Redskins lead the Saints.

Thats Timeless to me.

Manly men carry bags. I’ve been carrying one for nearly a decade. None as cool as these though. It would be awesome to leave this bag to my son when I stop needing a bag with me on a daily basis.

562 Michael December 6, 2009 at 10:13 pm

I was hoping to get a briefcase for Christmas, but after finding saddleback, I don’t think I can settle for anything less.

563 Daniel Ward December 6, 2009 at 11:32 pm

I love these bags, i hope to win one since it will be a long time before i can afford one. I love this blog, it has so much great advice on it. I learned how to shave properly and my face has been extremely healthy since then.

564 Bobby December 7, 2009 at 12:23 am

I sent my fiancee the link to Saddleback and told her that I wanted one for my graduation gift. I have been carrying a Kenneth Cole manbag for years and it would be gracefully retired for the Saddleback one.

565 The Thin Man December 7, 2009 at 3:11 am

Stephen – You know, that’s a great idea. I too think I have earned it!
It may not be as perfect as some of the other Photoshop guru’s but, I’m handy enough with a mouse to be dangerous!
Thanks for the suggestion.

566 Sam R. December 7, 2009 at 3:41 am

Those are some fine bags!

567 Blake December 7, 2009 at 10:28 am

571 Jessie December 7, 2009 at 12:42 pm

Hmm, classic . . . a 1976 BMW 2002. Well, maybe the car itself isn’t timeless, but the skill my boyfriend has acquired while working on ours is. He needs that beautiful laptop bag to go along with our beautiful car.

572 Dylan December 7, 2009 at 12:43 pm

One of those laptop bags would go swimmingly with my steampunk portable computing device. Bully.

573 Stan Duke December 7, 2009 at 12:50 pm

The original green Thermos from Stanley. I had to bring mine out this weekend, and my 10 and 8 year old boys loved it….and loved hearing the stories of my dad filling his and taking his to work when I was a kid. Functional and nostalgic at the same time.

574 Mike Stone December 7, 2009 at 12:54 pm

I’d rather be a dead man than be a two-faced sort of man who had to awake every day and look at myself in the mirror knowing what kind of man I really was in my heart. Be a man, toe the line, stand your ground, and take your lumps if you deserve them. That’s what being a man is all about.

I’m purchasing a new laptop this holiday season! Sure would like a Saddleback bag to carry it to Graduate class in…

You win some you shouldn’t win, and you lose some you shouldn’t lose.

580 Shahab December 7, 2009 at 4:12 pm

I hope i’m not too late to enter! The Saddleback bag would be a great replacement to my current laptop bag that’s falling apart, and I would look great on campus.

581 Shahab December 7, 2009 at 4:39 pm

Didn’t see my last comment go through….But I’d love to wine the Saddleback back!

582 Edwin December 7, 2009 at 5:53 pm

I think it’s wise to invest in a nice Umbrella. Not only are they normally more resistant to things such as wind, but they last longer and become something that you can hand down.

583 Hutch December 7, 2009 at 6:35 pm
584 Ron Hoskins December 7, 2009 at 7:08 pm

My timeless thing is my dad’s old worn out Chilton manual. It’s super thick and held together by duct tape, which is also timeless, but it always brings up great memories of my dad working on cars when I was a kid.

585 Justin Pope December 7, 2009 at 7:34 pm

A timeless treasure that I discovered a few years ago was the act of collecting pocket watches. My mother and grandfather loved to go antique searching and I developed the love for it as well. One day, I decided that pocket watches were going to make up my collection. I have only begun my collection but I have two pocket watches from the Civil War era and another pocket watch that is newer that I actually use. As ironic as this statement sounds, collecting time has become my timeless treasure.

586 Allen Jones December 7, 2009 at 9:00 pm

My bit of wisdom for the day comes from Joseph Conrad’s short story “The Secret Sharer.” Long a favorite of mine, it is a story of a rookie ship captain. Near the beginning of his maiden voyage, the young captain battles feelings of inadequacy:

But what I felt most was my being a stranger to the ship; and if all the truth must be
told, I was somewhat of a stranger to myself. The youngest man on board
(barring the second mate), and untried as yet by a position of the
fullest responsibility, I was willing to take the adequacy of the others
for granted. They had simply to be equal to their tasks; but I wondered
how far I should turn out faithful to that ideal conception of one’s own
personality every man sets up for himself secretly.

If this isn’t true of every man, I don’t know what is. Wondering, when faced with any new challenge, just how faithful we’ll be to the success we’ve created in our own mind’s eye.

587 Daniel Williams December 7, 2009 at 9:30 pm

Classic or timeless: It’s corny I suppose, but – the Classics. There’s something spectacular about the study of Greek & Latin, the literature, the culture (which shouldn’t be sugar-coated, it’s not necessarily very nice most of the time), the ornate structures of dead languages… It’s passé to say so, I suppose, but I’ve always felt that classical study should be reintroduced to regular education. If nothing else, it teaches a certain degree of rigor.

588 Joshua Mindrum December 7, 2009 at 9:30 pm

A little cliche perhaps but something that is timeless is that of being a man itself and the continual search for what it means to be one. Because while the details may change there is always a need for men and the manly ethos.

589 Jeremiah Bonjean December 7, 2009 at 9:34 pm

It has been pouring all day, and just stopped. You cannot beat the smell of the outdoors after a rainstorm.

590 Michael Halbrook December 7, 2009 at 9:36 pm

When I think of timeless wisdom, I think of my dad’s most common quote from when he was raising us… “There’s a time and a place for everything.” And there truly is.

591 Andrew December 7, 2009 at 10:04 pm

Character is more valuable than brawn, yet the two combined make quite the man.

Ok, so I made it up on the spot. I am really glad I found this site! Thanks for all the valuable treasures on manliness.

592 Jason December 7, 2009 at 10:05 pm

Quiet humility…classic and timeless.

593 mike martin December 7, 2009 at 10:21 pm

I wish there were more companies like Saddleback that make things that really last.
My Schrade knife would go good in that bag !

594 Dallas Huybregts December 7, 2009 at 10:28 pm

Winning this prize would almost make me as manly as changing my name to Rock Kickass!

595 Travis K December 7, 2009 at 10:32 pm

What a great contest! If I win that bag will be taken with me all over the world. I’ve been to Morocco, Vietnam, the Philippines, Cambodia, Bolivia, Turkey, and several other countries. I was sad to retire my other “world bag” this year and althis would make a great replacement! Thanks for a cool giveaway.
