A Manly Bag For Your Manly Book: The Saddleback Leather Company Contest/Giveaway
Posted By Brett & Kate McKay On November 23, 2009 @ 10:35 pm In Dress & Grooming | Comments Disabled
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:
Ready for the details? Read on!
We’re awarding one winner a Limited Edition Art of Manliness/Saddleback Leather Briefcase . It’s an extra large light tobacco brown briefcase with The Art of Manliness boxer logo laser etched onto the bag. Indiana Jones will envy you when you win this bag. It’s a $600 USD value. Saddleback is also throwing in 3 $25 gift cards that can be used in their online store.
How to Enter
To enter, you must submit an awesomely manly picture of yourself reading The Art of Manliness: Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern Man  while doing something manly or while in a manly location. Here’s how to submit your photo:
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. You could take a picture of yourself reading The Art of Manliness while straight razor shaving or splitting wood. Or perhaps you know of a manly location that would be a great place to read The Art of Manliness. Be creative.
What’s nice about a contest, as opposed to a giveaway, is the more effort you put in to your entry, the more likely you are to win. So go for it!
Deadline to Enter
Deadline to enter is Monday, December 7, 2009 at 11:59PM CST. You’ve got two weeks to get a photo in!
