I like the black Gentleman and Scholar shirt.

Since AoM has written all those great articles about writing letters (can you do another one soon?) a variation of this shirt design would be great:

203 Don P. June 29, 2010 at 9:20 am

I like the Gentleman & Scholar design; it encourages manliness without excess attitude.

204 Ian June 29, 2010 at 9:21 am

I prefer the “Keep ‘em Flying” design but you should release another set based off of the old men’s magazines you did an article on. The “Weasles Ripped My Flesh” sort.

205 Roy June 29, 2010 at 9:22 am

I like the Gentleman and Scholar design, as well as the Hustle design.

206 Kish June 29, 2010 at 9:23 am

i can’t choose which shirt is best, it’s like asking which kid you love the best! Just can’t be done!!!

207 Brian June 29, 2010 at 9:26 am

I’m really liking the new Hustle T-shirt. I’m usually a fan of very plain or minimalist t-shirts, but I think I’ll have to buy that one if I don’t win the contest.

208 Vincent June 29, 2010 at 9:27 am

I prefer the Victory shirt. I like to wear shirts and hats with the self-branding “V” on them.

209 Colin B June 29, 2010 at 9:28 am

I love them all, but I think my favorite has to be the “Gentleman & Scholar” (black).

210 Jordan Poss June 29, 2010 at 9:28 am

I really like the “Keep it flying” design. My dad’s a pilot and we’ve both been keenly interested in old warbirds–especially fighters–for a long time, so that design strikes a chord with me.

211 EGON June 29, 2010 at 9:31 am

Love the Let’s Go tee. There’s nothing like a tribute to the greatest generation and showing off the pride of being an American!

212 Nathan June 29, 2010 at 9:31 am

I like the Victory one the best. Not that the other 2 are bad, but if I have to pick one…I’d say the Victory shirt.

213 Erik June 29, 2010 at 9:32 am

I have to say the rough riders t-shirt has to be my favorite. With gentleman & scholar coming in a close second. The new designs look pretty good and all are definite winners in my books.

214 Sonny June 29, 2010 at 9:32 am

Gentlemen’s boxing is the awesomer.

215 Ryan Adams June 29, 2010 at 9:35 am

I love the bull moose shirt and the Victory one. Great designs!

216 Doc June 29, 2010 at 9:38 am

Of the three, I have to go with “Keep it Flying”, light shirt, hot sun, RWB, it’s a winner. Hustle, as has been noted, is very 1984, it is #2. Thanks!

217 BryanTSC June 29, 2010 at 9:42 am

Hustle by far…reminds me of Atlas Shrugged.

218 Kurt W. Swanson June 29, 2010 at 9:42 am

“Gentleman & Scholar” in cardinal is my favorite, but all of them are good.

219 Chad June 29, 2010 at 9:42 am

My favorite is “Gentlemand & Scholar,” but one I wouldn’t mind seeing is a bouron and cigar-themed shirt. We all have our vices.

220 Karl June 29, 2010 at 9:45 am

I like the “gentleman and scholar” design best.

221 Chris M June 29, 2010 at 9:45 am

The Hustle one is pretty good. Maybe next time have a bunch of pictures of different mustaches and there accompaning names.

222 John June 29, 2010 at 9:46 am

The Gentleman & Scholar is most definitely my favorite in design and copy, but Strong as Oak is a close second.

223 Kevin June 29, 2010 at 9:47 am

There are several good choices but my favorite would have to be the new design “The World Belongs to Those Who Hustle”. This shirt reminds me that in order to get what I want in life, I need to simply work for it the best I can and hustle, because it takes no talent to hustle.

224 Chris Richardson June 29, 2010 at 9:48 am

Victory! It makes me feel like I win just because I am a man!

225 Barrett June 29, 2010 at 9:49 am

I like the Razor Sharp design, especially since AoM got me back into a real barber shop for the first time since I was a kid.

226 chad June 29, 2010 at 9:51 am

Hustle and “Let’s Go!” Have my bid! Perhaps a shirt with the old time barber pole!! Nothing more manly than the barbershop!

227 Chad June 29, 2010 at 9:54 am

Hustle or the first logo. Also perhaps a shirt with the barbershop pole! Getting a hair cut from a barbershop is manly!!

228 craig June 29, 2010 at 9:54 am

The Hustle shirt is sweet!

229 Philip Black June 29, 2010 at 9:56 am

There is no better expresion for a man…then ‘The world belongs to those who hustle’.
In a nut shell, this phrase can be used to save hundreds of hours usless motivational meetings…and focus one’s attention on getting things done!

230 Benjamin Leonard June 29, 2010 at 9:58 am

They are all wonderful but the hustle is my favorite.

231 Ryan June 29, 2010 at 10:00 am

“the world belongs to those who hustle.” A strong image and a powerful logo. That is my vote.

232 Bryan June 29, 2010 at 10:03 am

It is a toss up for me between the new Hustle shirt, Rough Riders, Man Up or Gentelman Scholar.

233 Rob June 29, 2010 at 10:03 am

I like the two based upon the World War II designs. The “Greatest Generation” who fought for freedom exemplifies what the Art of Manliness promotes.

234 MaCayn June 29, 2010 at 10:10 am

I like the Victory one. I would prefer the Hustle one, except the guy looks odd.

235 Kirt June 29, 2010 at 10:11 am

I like the hustle shirt. I especially like the retro-wartime look. It is reflective of a time when our country was focused on unifying.

236 Kyle June 29, 2010 at 10:18 am

The new Hustle T-shirt for suuure. Thanks, dudes.

237 Ripx180 June 29, 2010 at 10:19 am

I like the Man Up one with the cycle on front.

238 Will June 29, 2010 at 10:24 am

The hustle tee is the best.

239 Phil June 29, 2010 at 10:25 am

Gentleman’s Boxing Club has got to be my favourite.

240 Jaron Allen June 29, 2010 at 10:27 am

It’s all about the “Hustle”.

241 Blake June 29, 2010 at 10:28 am

I’m liking the ‘Hustle’.

242 saeed June 29, 2010 at 10:29 am

The world belongs to those who hustle!! and man up!

243 R.M. Reid June 29, 2010 at 10:32 am

I love the “Victory” design.

244 saeed June 29, 2010 at 10:34 am

hey im not sure if my post went through

i like the hustle, and man up. but i def like the hustle.

that seems to be the winner

245 Jon June 29, 2010 at 10:34 am

The hustle shirt is my favorite, because it’s true. Cynics make good movie characters, but hustlers make good men.

246 Warren June 29, 2010 at 10:36 am

The world belongs to those who hustle. A Great Shirt. I flagged this email post back on Feb. 7, 2010 and look back at it often when I need some inspiration to keep hustling. I am excited to see the theme carried on. What about a sticker too?

247 freedbyjc June 29, 2010 at 10:36 am

I love the “Man UP” design

248 Seth June 29, 2010 at 10:37 am

I’m liking the Victory shirt the best of these 3

249 Richard June 29, 2010 at 10:38 am

Victory shirt is the best!
reminds me of the daleks…

250 Chris June 29, 2010 at 10:42 am

Lovin the Hustle.

251 Pat D. June 29, 2010 at 10:43 am

I like the AOM Mens Brand Tee Navy. Simple, straightforward, manly.

252 Phil June 29, 2010 at 10:44 am

I’m a big fan of the Hustle design. I love the iron worker on it.

I also think that a design of a Victorian playbill or poster would be excellent; a striking font with “Art of Manliness” written across the top and a picture of a Victorian man being…well…plain old manly.

253 grace burke June 29, 2010 at 10:48 am

I like the ‘man up’ one. To me, that says it all!!!

254 Diego Ybarra June 29, 2010 at 10:50 am

Razor Sharp, for sure. Hope I win.

255 Joel June 29, 2010 at 10:53 am

Bull Moose in d white. Teddy is manliness.

256 Rajesh June 29, 2010 at 10:54 am

They’re all great, but the Bull Moose in D White is my favorite.

257 Matt G June 29, 2010 at 10:57 am

I like the Hustle one!

258 Luke June 29, 2010 at 10:58 am

As many have said already, they’re all pretty great designs, and while I’d normally be inclined to pick either the “Keep It Flying,” or “Victory,” designs, the “Hustle” shirt is really speaking to me right now – it’s a good motivational shirt, something I need right now (motivation, that is).

259 Ken June 29, 2010 at 11:03 am

“The World Belongs To Those Who Hustle” means a lot to me…before I started my hustling and busting my butt, I was sitting in a ho-hum job that got me down all the time. I relocated to stay employed (stayed in the same company), and when I arrived it turns out I was hired to do a very obscure and difficult job that I knew nothing about…I had very minor experience with it YEARS ago, and this was a totally upgraded product.


Now, I kick ass and take names. Because I Hustled. Thank you, Men!

260 Johnny June 29, 2010 at 11:03 am

I Like the Teddy R, Rough Riders, But I really really dig the new one, Lets go AOM Keep it flying, With the eagle and the stars and stripes, right before 4th of July thats awesome!

261 Scott June 29, 2010 at 11:03 am

Eagle one (1st one) for sure!

262 Adam R June 29, 2010 at 11:05 am

I still like the Gentleman’s Boxing Club shirt, but of the three new designs, I really like the Victory shirt.

263 Mike M June 29, 2010 at 11:06 am

Love them all, but the Hustle one is my favorite.

Just a comment, but I’m sure I’m not the only one who can’t wear t-shirts that aren’t made for tall guys. There is nothing manly about an exposed naval.

264 Robert Penn June 29, 2010 at 11:07 am

Going with the Hustle.

265 Josh Smith June 29, 2010 at 11:12 am

I would choose the “Man up” or “Rough Rider” t-shirts. I like em all though! Great way to get the word out about AOM…..

266 Justin June 29, 2010 at 11:17 am

I like the first one. Very patriotic

267 matt June 29, 2010 at 11:18 am

The “V” victory is my favorite. Simplicity at its best.

268 Brucifer June 29, 2010 at 11:20 am

The Hustle shirt really stands out. Frankly, with it’s large muscular red individual with a hammer, it reminds me of vintage soviet communist propaganda posters. I’m not a commie-pinko by any means, but admire them as art. And obviously this shirt’s message is individualistic, not collectivist. So yeah.

I’ll have to look at Tankfarm’s offerings to see if they have these designs in muscle shirts …. for those of us who are taking AoM’s advice about fitness.

269 Allen June 29, 2010 at 11:21 am

I really like the Hustle design. It’s a mantra that I share with my work team members daily. However, I like the nostalic aspect of the other two as well.

270 Johnny C June 29, 2010 at 11:22 am

It’s all about the HUSTLE!

271 Andrew Sharp June 29, 2010 at 11:23 am

The World Belongs to Those Who Hustle! A great design, a great message.. “Let’s Go A.O.M.” is a very close second.

272 sean June 29, 2010 at 11:23 am

What happened to the March contest/giveaway? Who won?

273 Gregory June 29, 2010 at 11:25 am

i’m voting for the hustle one

274 Dennard June 29, 2010 at 11:27 am

All three are cool, but I like the “hustle” shirt best followed by the “v” shirt.

275 Steve M June 29, 2010 at 11:28 am

I like the Hustle shirt the best. The message is strong, the graphics are great, and the art of manliness tagline is subdued. It would be neat to see this on the back of the shirt and a small graphic or message on the front chest pocket area or on the sleeve. That would kick the design up even further.

276 Jamie June 29, 2010 at 11:29 am

I’ve always been a fan of the “Gentleman & Scholar” shirt (in red), but I’ve already got that one. I’d want my next AoM shirt to be “Man Up!” with the old motorcycle on the front. That, or the Flying Eagle, which is cool, if a little cliche.

277 Another David June 29, 2010 at 11:29 am

Definitely the first one!

278 Lucas June 29, 2010 at 11:29 am

I also like the Hustle shirt. My other favorite is the bull moose one.

279 Thomas P June 29, 2010 at 11:30 am

For a good night on the town, Gentleman & Scholar is always a classy choice!

280 JimH June 29, 2010 at 11:30 am


281 Michael Schiesl June 29, 2010 at 11:31 am

My favorite has always been the “Gentlemen’s Boxing Club” shirt because of the stance the boxer has in the picture… pure ass kicking awesomeness.

282 Bryan Jackson June 29, 2010 at 11:34 am

I’m liking the Rough Riders design!

283 Peter Ness June 29, 2010 at 11:36 am

Gentleman Scholar. That’s manly.

284 Jason I. June 29, 2010 at 11:40 am

I really am partial to the New ‘Hustle’ design. I think it makes a good statement. As for a suggestion, I would like to see an idea in keeping with what I think AOM is about, which is making you a better man or remembering what it is to be a real man. A favorite saying of mine that I have had on motivational pictures is “Leadership is Action, Not Position”. I would think a similar adaptation for a AOM shirt could read similar to “Manliness is Action, not Genetics”. I for one have met many Men that only fit that classification loosely. Of course the graphic could be a number of things to go along with the statement.

285 Adam June 29, 2010 at 11:41 am

Hustle for sure

286 Lucas Jones June 29, 2010 at 11:42 am

My favorite is the ‘Hustle Shirt’.
I teach high school biology as well as coach cross country. I read the hustle article to ever class as well as my cross country team. I have the quote from Lincoln posted on my classroom wall.

One suggestion for a shirt would be incorporting Robert E. Lee’s definition of a Gentleman. Lee wrote a letter to his son, and in it he defines a gentleman. Very great letter and inspiration.

287 Eric Hsiao June 29, 2010 at 11:43 am

Liking the Hustle shirt. Conveys the message of the site and recent string of columns.

288 Brad June 29, 2010 at 11:49 am

The navy AoM logo with the crossing pistols is my favorite. Very simple and clean design. Dig it.

289 Joel June 29, 2010 at 11:50 am

I’m a fan of the Gentleman and Scholar shirt, and from the new ones, definitely the Hustle one.

290 Brandon June 29, 2010 at 11:51 am

I think its pretty safe to say the majority of readers prefer the hustle design, that was the first one that really jumped out at me. Even If I don’t win a free t-shirt I will definitely be buying that shirt. When I look at ithat shirt Im reminded of that famous quote by Abraham Lincoln, “Good things come to those who wait…but only the things left by those who hustle.” I love this website, and all the articles, I think if every man in the world read at least one article a week, they would rise up and become the real men we were all called to be and the world follows great men.

291 Anrew June 29, 2010 at 11:52 am

I definitely like the “gentleman and a scholar” shirt the best…. what it means to be a “man” is something worth studying and researching. “honor and class is impossible unless you know what is honorable and classy.” -Me

292 Chris June 29, 2010 at 11:57 am

My favorite design is the ‘Gentleman and Scholar’ shirt. The font is bold and nostalgic, which reflects well on the spirit behind this website and community.

293 Juston June 29, 2010 at 11:58 am

Out of the three new ones, I like the “Keep it flying” t-shirt, my favorite out of all of them is a tie between the “Gentleman & Scholar”, and the “Strong as Oak” shirts. They are all awesome though!

294 Versatek6 June 29, 2010 at 12:00 pm

Looking at the selections, I have a hard time picking a favorite from about half of them. The one that grabbed me, though, was the “Man Up!” because I am partial to old motorcycles, and I use that phrase with a couple musician friends from church.

For new designs, I think classic bomber nose art is egregiously underrepresented.

295 Zach June 29, 2010 at 12:02 pm

Victory is my favorite of the new ones. Strong as Oak is my all-time Favorite.

296 Ron June 29, 2010 at 12:03 pm

I really like the hustle shirt, but the eagle one is really tight too.

297 John June 29, 2010 at 12:04 pm

My favorite is the “Hustle” shirt – great message.

298 Julian June 29, 2010 at 12:18 pm

The World Belongs to Those Who Hustle – that’s my favorite.
They’re all great designs. I’m definitely going to be getting one.

299 Jeff Sutherland June 29, 2010 at 12:19 pm

Boxing Club!

300 Kevin Daniel June 29, 2010 at 12:19 pm

I like the HUSTLE design aside from the obvious communism influences. RED wording, RED Hammer.
