401 Sam June 29, 2010 at 8:32 pm

Definitely “Razor Sharp”

402 Adam June 29, 2010 at 9:15 pm

Love the Hustle T-Shirt. Will probably consider buying one if I can scare up the fundage! Keep it going AoM!

403 Ty June 29, 2010 at 9:15 pm

My favorite is the Hustle shirt. I would wear that onstage with my band.

404 Tom J. June 29, 2010 at 9:19 pm

#15 (Let’s Go!) chews up a pile of metrosexuals before breakfast, spits them out right before its cold-water, straight-razor shave, and then grinds them into the floor beneath the heel of its wingtip while adjusting its pocket square. That is a cool, righteous and manly T-shirt.

I would wear this to our Lodge (Alpha, #155, Illinois AF&AM) picnic in July, no doubt. My brothers would love it!

405 Dave Eikelberg June 29, 2010 at 9:22 pm

The Hustle shirt sends a great message that AOM can be proud of. I would change the colors to less flashy colors and stick with more manly and natural earth tones. I would also add the “.com” to the AOM at the bottom of the shirt, so that people who see it know that it is a web presence and that they can thereby get easily introduced to, and involved with, AOM.

406 Ehren June 29, 2010 at 9:23 pm

I really like the Victory one.

407 John June 29, 2010 at 9:29 pm

Victory for all good men.

408 neil boone June 29, 2010 at 9:32 pm

my favorite is Razor Sharp

409 Taylor June 29, 2010 at 9:39 pm

I’ve got to go with the new “Hustle” shirt. That being said, I’d like to see shirts that utilize both sides, maybe just the “Art of Manliness” on the front and the big manly theme for the shirt on the back.

410 Brian Elinsky June 29, 2010 at 10:18 pm

The Hustle shirt is definitely the best!!!

411 Derek June 29, 2010 at 10:30 pm

The hustle shirt’s design is great. The idea is even better.

412 Bram June 29, 2010 at 10:35 pm

V for Victory!

413 John June 29, 2010 at 10:36 pm

Tough, tough call. Really like the Gentleman & Scholar. But I also like the Strong as Oak design. They all look great!

414 Jimmy L June 29, 2010 at 10:37 pm

I like the second one!

415 Troy June 29, 2010 at 10:49 pm

My favorite?
“Let’s Go!”
Although I would prefer it in manly black but still… :)

416 msouza91 June 29, 2010 at 11:05 pm


417 strongvincent June 29, 2010 at 11:14 pm

Huge fan of the D.White Bull Moose (currently reading a biography of T.R.)…I also would like to see a Farragut-esque ‘Damn the Torpedoes, Full Speed Ahead!’ shirt.

(I do currently have a ‘Don’t Give up the Ship’ one – so thus the naval favoritism)

Keep up the good work, all of you!

418 Phi Huynh June 29, 2010 at 11:16 pm

Definitely the Hustle shirt.

419 Austen E June 29, 2010 at 11:33 pm

Gentleman & Scholar (in Black)

420 Cody June 29, 2010 at 11:38 pm

Razor sharp. It just looks sharp, like a razor.

421 Joe L-E June 29, 2010 at 11:45 pm

I recently decided to stop buying T-Shirts becaue I had WAY too many, but I would certainly make an exception for the Rough Riders one! That is so awesome. Of course, I wouldn’t mind winning three new ones either!

422 Eric June 29, 2010 at 11:46 pm

Personally, I find the Victory shirt pretty awesome. That said, all the shirts are pretty awesome, nice job!

423 Tarl Hutchens June 30, 2010 at 12:23 am

I really like the “Keep it flying” design, really cool, and timely for the fourth.

424 Nafiz Karim June 30, 2010 at 12:41 am


425 John Hazel June 30, 2010 at 1:08 am

What about just putting the normal Art of Manliness banner on a T-Shirt?

426 Steve June 30, 2010 at 1:19 am

The “Hustle” t-shirt is my choice. What a great reminder for myself and others to refer to.

427 Bryan Martin June 30, 2010 at 1:30 am

Let’s Go AoM, give me a t-shirt!

428 Michael Collins June 30, 2010 at 3:23 am

I’m big on the “Victory” design

429 JR June 30, 2010 at 3:26 am

I also like the hustle design. The design is pretty engaging and speaks to some fundamental attribute of manhood: perseverance, industry and hard work.

430 Tony L. June 30, 2010 at 3:55 am

Gentleman and Scholar is my favorite!

431 Ronald June 30, 2010 at 4:00 am

Razor Sharp by far!

432 Tim Sutphen June 30, 2010 at 4:29 am

I love the “Keep em Flying!” design. As one who flies C130s this resonates with the mindset involved in our profession. Nothing like flying some old piece of metal that lacks the modern gadgets and requires the ole stick and rudder, seat-o-da-pants feel like the men of reknown used to fly. Plus it’s one plane that still employs the Navigator! Truly American….truly masculine.

I would like to add that these designs are phenomenal. I love rockin a pair of jeans and a t-shirt but finding t-shirts these days that aren’t pink or metro is difficult. I would love it if you guys could swing some tall sizes. I’m 6’7″ and wouldn’t mind seeing some t-shirts I could wear without they always pulling up in the back.

Thanks guys!

433 Patrick June 30, 2010 at 4:37 am

The “hustle” design wins easily in my book. Firstly, the blacksmith looks great and fits the message like nothing else. Secondly, I like the colours. Last but not least, I think that “the world belongs to those who hustle” is the most important message found on AoM. Once you incorporate it in your life, everything else seems to find its own place automatically.

434 mars June 30, 2010 at 5:39 am

I agree. The “Hustle” shirt looks really nice. I especially like the message of the shirt. Wearing this with remind anyone (who have read the article) to always do their best and hustle. I hope to see more designs featuring nice slogans/ messages like this.
Kudos! to AoM.

435 Levin June 30, 2010 at 6:19 am

Hi definitely like the ‘Hustle’ design the best.
But the the first one is great, too.
Keep up the great work!

436 Adam June 30, 2010 at 7:52 am

Howdy. I’m definitely feeling the Hustle design the most. Just awesome all around.

437 Christopher June 30, 2010 at 8:42 am

Loving the V design -

438 Shaun June 30, 2010 at 8:58 am

I’m particularly fond of the V for Victory one. It’s iconic, and who doesn’t need a bit of victory, now and again…

439 alex June 30, 2010 at 9:43 am

Gotta say the stars and stripes bull moose in d. white.

440 Joel June 30, 2010 at 9:59 am

Do the Hustle!

441 Nathan June 30, 2010 at 10:09 am

I am picking the Victory shirt in hopes of winning!

442 Jacky June 30, 2010 at 10:17 am

The Eagle one!

443 Randy Valcin June 30, 2010 at 11:00 am

The New shirt ” The world belongs to those who hustle” is the best one yet. It is a bold statement that can only be worn by one who always hustles.

444 Jonathan Dougherty June 30, 2010 at 12:01 pm

I like the Hustle shirt.

445 Bob G. June 30, 2010 at 12:24 pm

I like the Gentleman and Scholar T-Shirt (black) the best although the new ones are awesome as well.

446 Benjamin June 30, 2010 at 12:53 pm

We all know, “The world belongs to those who hustle.”

447 Mike McC June 30, 2010 at 12:57 pm

The hustle T-shirt is the epitome of manly apparel

448 Nick June 30, 2010 at 1:07 pm

I would enjoy all three in my wardrobe, but the “Keep It Flying,” takes the cake!!

449 Nick June 30, 2010 at 1:08 pm

“Keep it Flying.” Awesome.

450 Michael June 30, 2010 at 1:48 pm

I think that hustle one is the business!!!

451 Al June 30, 2010 at 1:52 pm

My favorites are the Rough Rider design and the Gentleman’s Boxing Club. I like the Hustle design as well. Tank Farm continues to put out top-notch work!

452 Ryan G June 30, 2010 at 2:06 pm

Wow. These are all so great! My favorite is probably the second one…

453 Brad John Dallaire June 30, 2010 at 2:10 pm

I like the one that states “the world belongs to those who hustle.” because its not only the truth but its also the the core value many of our founding fathers lived by.

454 Rudy Hernandez June 30, 2010 at 2:12 pm

can’t beat “gentleman and a scholar” in black.

455 Todd Hawbaker June 30, 2010 at 2:20 pm

‘to those who hustle’ Wins my vote!

456 BRK June 30, 2010 at 2:51 pm

I liked the Gentleman & Scholar… but now the new hustle shirt wins as my favorite.

457 John June 30, 2010 at 2:52 pm

The Hustle is my favorite. I think a good theme would be a series based on heroes and models of virtue, a drawing in bust adorned with suitable design, perhaps a pithy quote on the back.

458 Adam June 30, 2010 at 4:10 pm

Definitely the Bull Moose in black.

459 Roli June 30, 2010 at 4:51 pm

I like the Gentlemen’s Boxing Club!

460 Dennis June 30, 2010 at 4:59 pm

I dig the victory one

461 Keith VanDyke June 30, 2010 at 5:25 pm

Those are COOL! I really like the V for Victory (because I’m a Vet!) and the Hustle and the Fight With Power (Because that’s what I do and the tools that I do it with everyday!)

462 Philip June 30, 2010 at 5:38 pm

The hustle design: absolutely.

463 Demian June 30, 2010 at 5:44 pm

I gotta say I’m a fan of the “Razor Sharp” T-Shirt. A manly man may not shave everyday but when he does he does it straight.

464 Tyler June 30, 2010 at 5:58 pm

I dig the Gentleman’s Boxing Club shirt. Bare-chested but bearing a top hat – very nice mix of brawn and style.

465 Andy June 30, 2010 at 6:24 pm

love the hustle one.

the word HUSTLE stands out, so the shirt looks cool without reading the rest of the logo

466 R. Bryan Smith June 30, 2010 at 7:19 pm

Fight With Power (silver), all the way.

467 Tim T June 30, 2010 at 7:47 pm

The “hustle” t is the best despite being Soviet inspired.

468 Timothy Schmitz June 30, 2010 at 7:55 pm

Gotta go with the Bull Moose – d white, although I really like hustle, too.

469 Rickster June 30, 2010 at 8:32 pm

Personally i liked the “Hustle” design!
but the others were great too!

470 Dylan Calder June 30, 2010 at 8:59 pm

My favorite is definitely the Bull Moose Flag in d. white

471 Michael June 30, 2010 at 9:30 pm

Torn between the hustle and the shaving ones.

472 stefano June 30, 2010 at 10:06 pm

I like the 1st and the 3rd design.

473 B.J. June 30, 2010 at 10:18 pm

The world belongs to those who HUSTLE!!!

474 Brennan June 30, 2010 at 10:41 pm

Of these 3 I like the one about hustling the best, but my all time favorite so far is the gentlemens boxing t shirt.

475 Syed June 30, 2010 at 10:43 pm

I think the Rough Rider one is the ultimate. Anybody who comments on it and know what it refers to is also a great.

I think the Flying Eagle and Gentleman & Scholar would both look nice in a strong/deep/dark whatever Navy color. Black is a little too dark for my taste on these hot Texan summer days. Navy gives it a powerful look, with a color that doesn’t irk me in summertime or winter. Houston doesn’t really have a “Spring”…

476 Zach Wipf June 30, 2010 at 10:44 pm

I love the Victory tee.

477 Tiffany B June 30, 2010 at 11:13 pm

I love the Hustle design b/c girls can wear it too! ;)

478 Zack June 30, 2010 at 11:18 pm

The Rough Rider in black…. Not a question.

479 Jeremy June 30, 2010 at 11:37 pm

Razor Sharp. Dad was a barber, and took care of me between age 2-5 while my mom worked. I remember the care he took of his razors, as well as the care he took to keep them out of my reach. Also remember the time I picked one up, and how much trouble I was in!

480 Steve DeMartin July 1, 2010 at 12:28 am

I’m liking the “Let’s Go A.O.M!” one, but the “Hustle” one is good too, reminds me of an IWW poster or something.

481 Evan July 1, 2010 at 1:11 am

The victory V.

482 John July 1, 2010 at 1:13 am

Strong as Oak

483 Dan July 1, 2010 at 1:21 am

I think a design emphasizing good ole TR would be great. Perhaps something about the original Rough Riders, not the DMX hip hop song. That said, the hustle design is pretty excellent.

484 Nick July 1, 2010 at 1:25 am

I prefer the gentlemen boxing shirt myself always had that sort of class to it in my opinion. An for my second pic would be the the V shirt cause it symbolizes victory for AoM.

485 Damon July 1, 2010 at 1:46 am

Wearing the skull of one of Americas most violent and beloved leaders… Doesn’t get more manly than that! Rough Riders for sure!

486 Lukebot July 1, 2010 at 2:08 am

I love the Fight With Power one. It’s a great design.

487 Matt July 1, 2010 at 2:46 am

I really enjoy the boxing shirt. It seems to perfectly embody the spirit of the website. Besides, pugilist is one of the most manly professions.

488 Josh July 1, 2010 at 2:56 am

The Gentleman & Scholar shirt really hits home. I am neither but aspire to both. Here’s to AOM helping me accomplish my goal!

489 kevin July 1, 2010 at 3:00 am

my favorite is the “keep it flying”

490 Levi July 1, 2010 at 4:50 am

I’m torn.

As an American History teacher, I like the “Bull Moose” shirt. I’d wear it when I tell the kids about TR’s attempted assassination.

However, as a man, I love “The World Belongs to Those Who Hustle.” I want to wear it every time I go over to a certain (non-chosen, non-blood) family member’s house to reinforce upon his mind the importance of going to work and taking care of his wife and child.

491 Sergio Vega July 1, 2010 at 4:54 am

I like the hustle logo along with the flying eagle logo. All of the designs are great.

492 Patrick Tanner July 1, 2010 at 8:32 am

I like the blue Victory one. It is just bold!

493 Matt Lynch July 1, 2010 at 10:55 am

Hustle for sure!

494 Ryan July 1, 2010 at 11:27 am

The Hustle design is awesome.

And full of truth.

495 Ben Mac July 1, 2010 at 12:12 pm

I’m a big fan of “Rough Riders.” Teddy remains a model for any and everyman to emulate. Plus it is extremely badass.

496 B. Lyon July 1, 2010 at 12:39 pm

Of the new designs, I like the “Hustle” t-shirt best. Overall, you can’t beat the “Gentleman’s Boxing” shirt–great design, great color. I’d like to see a design on a brown or maroon shirt.

497 Mike July 1, 2010 at 1:14 pm

I really like the new Hustle design!

498 Mike July 1, 2010 at 1:15 pm

Hey how about some short sleeve polos with a design on the pocket or something?

499 Mike July 1, 2010 at 1:55 pm

Bull Moose is pretty great. When people see it they know who you feel about the Pinchot-Ballinger affair and the Payne Aldrich Tariff.

500 Josh July 1, 2010 at 1:58 pm

My favorite is still the Gentleman & Scholar in Cardinal, but I really do like the new vintage Victory shirt.
