I like the Hustle one, even though some may think it’s a tribute to a labor union until they look close. That’s not a bad thing, but just a thought.

I like them all, though.

302 shawn June 29, 2010 at 12:25 pm

like the hustle design. would like to see some classic tshirt design like the fighting mustache man with some kinda inscription like “i’m the kinda guy my grandpa would’ve hung out with”….?????

303 Jared June 29, 2010 at 12:46 pm

I would like one that has the quote from Winston Churchill: “You have enemies? Good. That means you stood up for something once in your life”

304 M June 29, 2010 at 12:50 pm

Wow! Those are great. My favourite changes daily! I think I’ll go with “Fight With Power”

Thanks,
- M

305 Bernie W. June 29, 2010 at 12:52 pm

I like the Hustle shirt!

306 Stephen June 29, 2010 at 12:54 pm

The Hustle shirt!

307 Jason Willis June 29, 2010 at 12:58 pm

All three are nice designs but the Hustle and the Keep It Flying are my top two. The Keep It Flying design definitely captures my mental picture of the WWII posters.

308 Daniel June 29, 2010 at 12:58 pm

The Victory shirt is by far my favorite. Simple and Strong.

309 Matt C. June 29, 2010 at 12:58 pm

Hard to say, but I think I will go for “AOM Mens Brand Tee, Navy.”

310 Kelly John June 29, 2010 at 12:58 pm

I like the fight with power or gentlemans boxing club

311 Dennis June 29, 2010 at 1:14 pm

I like the Victory one! Maybe doing some in the future incorporating the quotes of our founding fathers.

312 Adam Kibbe June 29, 2010 at 1:15 pm

My Favorite is the Hustle t-shirt. Great design – it has that “ballsy” quality which matches the flavor of your site. Keep it up.

313 Shaun D June 29, 2010 at 1:16 pm

Flying Eagle is nice!!

314 Ken Jenkins June 29, 2010 at 1:17 pm

I like the Victory design

315 Ken McLaughlin June 29, 2010 at 1:19 pm

I do like the Victory one but out of all the 13 designs the one I’d most likely buy are Man Up! (which is something I’m very found of saying) and Gentleman & Scholar. Both designs I would be proud to be seen wearing about the town or while doing my weekend construction projects.
Thanks guys for such great designs!

316 Paul Moustache Pitner June 29, 2010 at 1:21 pm

Wow. I like these much more than the old ones! (especially the “hustle”)

317 Daniel June 29, 2010 at 1:22 pm

The hustle one is the best by far. Hustling and manliness go hand and hand….classic

318 Conrad June 29, 2010 at 1:26 pm

The Hustle shirt is my favorite.

319 Kyle Troop June 29, 2010 at 1:29 pm

I’m really digging that Keep It Flying shirt.

320 Justin Powers June 29, 2010 at 1:29 pm

I’m a fan of the hustle design.

321 Michael June 29, 2010 at 1:31 pm

I like the ‘hustle’ one the best; so simple and so true!

322 Lee Ervin June 29, 2010 at 1:32 pm

My favorite was the “fight with power” shirt and the AOM, with the pistols, but man the “hustle” shirt is the best! Me an my family are living proof of what it means for a man to hustle!

323 Tyler B. June 29, 2010 at 1:33 pm

I gotta say of the new ones, I like the Hustle shirt the most.

324 Juri P June 29, 2010 at 1:35 pm

I like the “Rough Rider” t-shirt, very manly design, skull and everything.

325 Chris Hamilton June 29, 2010 at 1:38 pm

Definitely the “Hustle” shirt.

326 Simon June 29, 2010 at 1:40 pm

The V for Victory design is great. I’ve always thought WWII posters would make a great t shirt…they definitely do.

327 Blake Seitz June 29, 2010 at 1:41 pm

I’m partial to the ‘Victory’ design. Very American.

328 Marshall June 29, 2010 at 1:42 pm

Gentlemen’s Boxing club L is my favorite. Design one with a handshake or fist of somesort.

329 Tyler June 29, 2010 at 1:43 pm

The hustle shirt

330 Adam June 29, 2010 at 1:49 pm

I am not the first and I will not be the last, but I have to agree that the hustle shirt is the best.

331 Andrew June 29, 2010 at 1:50 pm

Hustle for sure. Love all 3 though.

332 Jason June 29, 2010 at 1:55 pm

My favorite is “Let’s Go! A.O.M.”

333 Emilia June 29, 2010 at 1:57 pm

The Hustle shirt is by far the coolest and my favorite.

334 Patrick June 29, 2010 at 2:00 pm

I like the “Hustle” design, very cool.

335 Mary June 29, 2010 at 2:02 pm

I love the hustle shirt.

336 Mike Q June 29, 2010 at 2:09 pm

I’m a fan of “THOSE WHO HUSTLE”

337 Jon June 29, 2010 at 2:15 pm

My favorite out of all your shirts is the new “Hustle” design.

338 Jason K. Crane June 29, 2010 at 2:18 pm

Wow, these new designs are great, gentlemen! I love the retro Second Great War/propaganda themes! My favorite has to be the “Keep it flying” design, but my all-time favorite AoM design is still the Bull Moose logo (it’s hard call; a design honoring the Greatest Generation versus a design honoring Teddy’s legacy)! I love the site, and I love the shirts! Keep up the good work, fellas!

Excelsior! – JKC

339 Austin June 29, 2010 at 2:22 pm

I’ve gotta go with the minority here, my favorite is the “Let’s Go!” design. The other two are a little soviet-like…

340 Tom June 29, 2010 at 2:25 pm

I love the Hustle one. Reminds me of Atlas shrugged. I would love to see a t-shirt that refers to that great series you did on resillience; maybe featuring a guy with a bondolier cutting through the jungle. That’d be bad ass.

341 Greg June 29, 2010 at 2:36 pm

Hustle has it all

342 Louis massa June 29, 2010 at 2:46 pm

My favorite is defenitly the keep it flying one

343 Joey June 29, 2010 at 3:03 pm

+1 for HUSTLE!

344 Heath June 29, 2010 at 3:04 pm

Definitely the first one. I need one!

345 Christopher June 29, 2010 at 3:05 pm

One more vote for Hustle!

346 MAP June 29, 2010 at 3:05 pm

“Razor Sharp” is my favorite. It is a great salute to barbershops!

347 Jim H. June 29, 2010 at 3:06 pm

Of the 3 new ones, I like the Lets Go! Shirt. Im a big fan of eagles and also ex military. Out of all the shirts, I am torn between the “Gentlemen Boxing club” and the “Flying Eagle”.

348 Nate June 29, 2010 at 3:08 pm

I’ve been looking to get myself the “strong as oak” and my friend the bull moose in white for his b-day, but these new shirts must now be considered.

I’d like to see a shirt with the iconic AoM mustache across the chest and possibly a pipe perched beneath it. I think that just about sums up the essence of AoM.

349 Richard Maurer June 29, 2010 at 3:08 pm

I love the vintage style of all the designs but most definitely appreciate the “Hustle”. I am a blacksmith and metal sculptor and nothing suits my way of life quite like hustling. Busting ass is the number one criteria for being a sculptor and working metal into organic forms is all about hustle. I coach a lot of baseball and soccer and am always keyed in on the kids who are the work horses whether they posses great ability or not is often dwarfed by the enthusiasm and work ethic.

350 Jamie Lorance June 29, 2010 at 3:10 pm

I admit I prefer the Hustle design, although I worry it borders on confusion with the ‘hustla’ lifestyle.’

Also, I think a Scout based design would be top notch. For example, http://www.rare-posters.com/179.jpg and simply replace the end with the word man.

351 Tito June 29, 2010 at 3:19 pm

It’s between Victory and Rough Rider… Teddy’s hard to beat, so we’ll go with the RR shirt.

352 Anthony Piselli June 29, 2010 at 3:23 pm

I love the Flying Eagle … I love Eagles nothing more regal than our National Bird!!

353 Jon June 29, 2010 at 3:23 pm

Those Who Hustle – I feel that describes me and my values perfectly and would proudly sport that shirt. Good job AoM

354 Adam June 29, 2010 at 3:27 pm

Razor Sharp or Tough as Oak.

Hard decision…One grandfather was a barber for nearly 60 years, and the other was a carpenter for several decades as well.

355 Hank June 29, 2010 at 3:32 pm

Definitely love the V for Victory shirt…though I also dig the Hustle theme.

356 Jason A. June 29, 2010 at 3:32 pm

Of these three I prefer the “Victory” shirt as it is an iconic design. I like the idea of the “Hustle” shirt best, but the design doesn’t appeal to me.

If you are talking about the entire line then the best shirt is the “Gentleman’s Boxing Club” with honorable mention going to “Gentleman and Scholar.”

As for ideas, maybe a t-shirt that says “Square-rigged Gentleman” (of course, it would have to be quite a t-shirt lest it become ironic!)

357 Walter Leinberger June 29, 2010 at 3:37 pm

My favorite, by far, is The World Belongs to Those Who Hustle. Not only is it a very cool design, it is a statement that rings true to any person in this world and their desire to succeed.

358 Samuel V. June 29, 2010 at 3:40 pm

They all are just awesome, but ill go with the “Man Up” one, the one with the bike on it.

359 Kyle Puelston June 29, 2010 at 3:45 pm

“The world belongs to those who Hustle.” I love that one!

360 Philip June 29, 2010 at 3:45 pm

Definitely those “The World Belongs to those who Hustle”

361 Jacob Mandell June 29, 2010 at 3:48 pm

“The World belongs to Those Who Hustle”

362 Brian June 29, 2010 at 3:50 pm

I like the hustle one. I really enjoyed the article and got a lot out of it.

363 Brett June 29, 2010 at 3:50 pm

The new Hustle design is my favorite.

364 K.M. Jones June 29, 2010 at 3:51 pm

Nice designs, but not everyone is sized from the 1950′s. How about some 3X or 4XL shirts for us large and tall men?

365 Kevin June 29, 2010 at 3:56 pm

Gotta go with the black Flying Eagle shirt. Classic!

366 Justin Collard June 29, 2010 at 3:59 pm

I really like the Victory one, they all have a great old poster look though.

367 James Withey June 29, 2010 at 4:00 pm

I really like the “Keep it Flying” T as it shows patriotism. As one who has served and one who studies World War Two I feel this one conveys Manliness best.

368 Ryan G June 29, 2010 at 4:01 pm

Mine is certainly the “Let’s Go” variant.

369 gus June 29, 2010 at 4:03 pm

I like the black Rough Rider skull shirt. I have two reasons. First, I have a TR mustache, secondly, I live near the Teddy Trail. This is the route TR rode, during the night, from Mount Marcy to North Creek to catch the train to Buffalo When McKinley was shot.

370 T.J. C June 29, 2010 at 4:05 pm

Got to be the Hustle

371 Alex June 29, 2010 at 4:07 pm

I like the hustle one, not only cause of the message, but it also looks cool.

372 kelly o June 29, 2010 at 4:20 pm

The Hustle shirt is awesome

373 Isaac M June 29, 2010 at 4:28 pm

I do believe that a black “Gentleman & Scholar” shirt would serve me well as I work to become a better gentleman and a scholar.

374 Herbie June 29, 2010 at 4:32 pm

May i suggest a t-shirt design with perhaps a picture of a classic pair of glasses sitting on top of an old classic book. Or maybe a picture of a classic black oxfords shown. or maybe a picture of a father and son in an activity with the words “man up!” or “man up my son!”

375 Viktor Khersonski June 29, 2010 at 4:32 pm

Definetly the hustle one! It’s amazing!

376 Matthew June 29, 2010 at 4:36 pm

The black Bull Moose one takes the cake for me.

377 Matthew Ryan June 29, 2010 at 4:47 pm

Love the Hustle design, but I’m also partial to the Gentleman’s Boxing Club

378 Mark Herl June 29, 2010 at 4:54 pm

I dig the “hustle” one.

379 Dave Long June 29, 2010 at 5:04 pm

I like all of them, and would gladly buy all, but did someone somewhere declare that real men only start in the large size? Geez, I have a heck of a time getting small sizes in this world. Small guys are manly too!

380 Shane Rice June 29, 2010 at 5:05 pm

The world belongs to those who hustle shirt is incredible! I like the way it merges a mid century propaganda with an old school mentality on work and effort. Fantastic.

381 Chris Panzero June 29, 2010 at 5:09 pm

The Hustle one is good, but my new favorite has got to be “Keep It Flying”. Wonderful designs, here’s hoping that future releases will stay on par with this level of excellence.

382 Nate June 29, 2010 at 5:10 pm

I really like the V for Victory shirt.

383 Broch June 29, 2010 at 5:13 pm

I would have to say the Gentleman & Scholar black one for me.

384 George June 29, 2010 at 5:21 pm

I like the hustle shirt!
Honorable mentions for the bull moose and the rough riders.

385 William June 29, 2010 at 5:26 pm

They are all so cool! Gotta go with the Bull Moose or the Rough Rider. Anyone who makes the connection qualifies as manly.

386 Jérôme Denis Andre June 29, 2010 at 5:35 pm

“THOSE WHO HUSTLE” :D

387 Michael June 29, 2010 at 5:44 pm

I have to say the Man up one agrees with me

388 Jackson June 29, 2010 at 6:01 pm

victory is my favorite design.

389 Honorio Herrera June 29, 2010 at 6:10 pm

Love the shirts, the big V for victory really stands out.

390 Rob June 29, 2010 at 6:15 pm

Gentlemen’s Boxing Club is my favorite by far.

391 Daniel M Jr June 29, 2010 at 6:31 pm

Gentleman and Scholar defines me, so that’s my favorite!

392 Steve Davis June 29, 2010 at 7:06 pm

I prefer the Teddy skull and crossed cavalry swords.

393 Levi Cragun June 29, 2010 at 7:20 pm

I love them all but, Razor Sharp is my favorite. Rough riders is a close second

394 Rustin Gramm June 29, 2010 at 7:32 pm

the razor sharp design just says old school manliness to me. definitely my favorite.

395 Michael June 29, 2010 at 7:35 pm

I love the hustle shirt! its such a great motivator.

396 Zach.A June 29, 2010 at 7:40 pm

I like the “Victory” one. Simple but gets the point across.

397 Mereel June 29, 2010 at 7:42 pm

I think all these shirts are awesome!
I especially like the Hustle shirt. Men that hustle are usually good workers and good workers are quality men!

398 Bryan June 29, 2010 at 7:53 pm

I have to say, that Hustle shirt is my favorite so far. Nicely done! Motivational and Manly.

399 Charlie June 29, 2010 at 7:56 pm

I love them all, but my favorite has to be “Razor Sharp”!

400 Phil June 29, 2010 at 8:27 pm

The hustle design is my favorite. There is far too little of the hustle attitude today.
