New Art of Manliness Store (Plus New T-shirts & Posters)

For years now we’ve had an online store that sold different Art of Manliness themed products like t-shirts, posters, and stationery.

But there were a few problems.

First, the shopping experience in the AoM Store was a pain in the butt. If you wanted an AoM t-shirt, you had to go to the Tankfarm site; if you wanted stationery, you had to go to the Page Stationery website; and if you wanted posters, you had to use a special PayPal cart that I created.

How annoying is that? You had to visit three different sites and enter your credit card info three different times just so you could get a t-shirt, poster, and a box of AoM stationery. What’s more, if you had a question about your order, you had to check with three different companies.

Second, I was handling the fulfillment and shipping on posters and pocket notebooks myself. That wasn’t a big deal when we were first starting out, but I found myself devoting more and more of my time each week to rolling posters and stuffing them in tubes instead of creating virile content to help improve the lives of men. Christmastime was the worst. And because I was a rank amateur when it came to shipping and fulfilling, I biffed many an order.

To solve the crappy shopping experience and to ensure I never pull another all-nighter rolling posters, I’m happy to announce that we’ve partnered with ROBYN Promotions in Oklahoma City to create a new shopping experience for the Art of Manliness Store.

The New Art of Manliness Store


One-stop shopping. You can now order all our items in a single (and secure) shopping cart. No more visiting multiple sites to get what you want.

Order tracking. When people ordered posters from me, they had no clue on their order status. I didn’t either. I didn’t have order tracking. Now we do. As soon as your order ships, you’ll get an email with your tracking number so you can see how soon you’ll have your manly products.

Faster order turn-around. I could only devote Fridays to shipping posters and notebooks. That’s all the time I had. So if you ordered something on Friday after I visited the post office, it would be a week before your order would even get sent. With the new AoM store, your order will be shipped within 48 business hours. No more waiting nearly two weeks to get your order.

Better customer service. Because we have dedicated professionals taking care of shipping and handling, we can offer better customer service. If you have a question about your order, just contact us.

I want to thank Eric Granata at ROBYN for his work on getting the new store going.

New Products

In addition to launching a new store platform, we’re also excited to announce a bunch of new products.

New Posters — Featuring the Artwork of Ted Slampyak

Over the past few years, we’ve had the privilege of working with illustrator Ted Slampyak to create some awesome visual guides for the Art of Manliness. Many of you have requested posters featuring his artwork. We are happy to oblige.

Know Your Lifts


Ted has created a set of visual guides demonstrating proper weight lifting technique that we call “Know Your Lifts.” Now you can buy the visual guides as posters. They’re perfect for your home gym or Crossfit Box. We currently offer three posters: high-bar back squat, deadlift, and overhead press. Save $6 when you buy the complete set.

Cell Phone Etiquette Posters


Back in January, we worked with Ted to create a set of vintage-inspired propaganda posters on cell phone etiquette. It’s been one of our most popular posts of the year. Now you can buy a real-life poster for your office or classroom to remind people to practice good smartphone etiquette. Save $10 by buying the complete set.

In addition to these new posters, you can also buy our popular “If” and “Man in the Arena” posters.

New T-shirts


The gents at Tankfarm Clothing have once again designed a set of virile themed t-shirts for the Art of Manliness.

In addition to the new designs, we also have a few of our classic designs in stock like “Gentleman and Scholar”, “Rough Rider”, and “Strength & Honor”.

Other Virile Products

Besides t-shirts and posters, you’ll find some other great products in our online store.

AoM Pocket Notebooks


Far from being a modern fad, the pocket notebook has a long, important, and manly history. Pocket notebooks were part of the arsenal of a long list of great men from Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Edison. Follow in their footsteps by carrying your own official AoM pocket notebook where you can write down all your manly ponderings and ideas. The cover has John L. Sullivan with the words “Semper Virilis” (Always Manly) circling his head. On the inside of the front cover, you’ll find the poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling, and on the inside back cover, you’ll find Teddy Roosevelt’s “Man in the Arena” speech.

AoM Letterpress Stationery and Coasters


A gentleman understands the power of a handwritten note. Unfortunately, quality stationery designed specifically for men is hard to find.

That’s why Art of Manliness has teamed up with Page Stationery to create a line of manly correspondence cards, perfect for jotting off a quick note.

We’ve also have some letterpress coasters for your manly beverages.

Special Launch Giveaway

To celebrate the launch of our new store and new products, we’re having a giveaway. The prize is any one item from the new AoM store. To enter, visit the Art of Manliness store, pick out an item that you’d like, and leave a comment below sharing which item you want.

Deadline to enter is Friday, June 21, 2013 at 5PM CDT. We’ll then pick three random comments to determine our three lucky winners.

As an incentive to enter, every one who enters will be sent a 10% discount code for the AoM store at the end of the contest.

Update: Our lucky winners are: Jason from Williamstown, NJ (Gentleman & Scholar tee), Victor from Chicago (Rough Riders tee), and Anthony from Westfield, IN (Know Your Lifts poster set).

103 Steve Duane June 15, 2013 at 6:21 am

One Pocket Notebook for me, please and thank you!

104 Geoff S. June 15, 2013 at 6:32 am

I’m tired of writing thank you notes on flower cards, so it’s time to get some manly stationary. My choice? The AofM stationary set!

105 Jonathan Doss June 15, 2013 at 6:33 am

Men’s Stationery: Man, Briefcase, Straight Razor.

106 David Y June 15, 2013 at 6:59 am

Would love either the “If” or “Man in the Arena” posters.

107 Dusty Bill June 15, 2013 at 7:52 am

I would like the stationary: Man, Briefcase, Straight Razor.

108 Joe June 15, 2013 at 7:54 am

For me it would have to be the stationary kit with boxer, true north and the revolver. :-)

109 Josh June 15, 2013 at 7:57 am

For me, it would have to be the custom stationery set. Those are awesome!

110 Ryan Bebee June 15, 2013 at 8:16 am

The new store looks great. Thanks for investing in so many men with the hopes of a return to manliness. I’d love the AoM Stationery: Rifle, Pointer, Deer. Keep the posts coming!

111 Albert T June 15, 2013 at 8:19 am

The awesome “Sullivan Wreath T-Shirt” (Medium).

112 Thom Willis June 15, 2013 at 8:21 am

Well as I already possess the two books, I must say I quite like the “Gentleman & Scholar” T-Shirt.

113 Kody June 15, 2013 at 8:26 am

The Know Your Lifts poster set would look awesome in my dorm room!

114 Jonathon June 15, 2013 at 8:41 am

I’d like the letterpress coasters. They’ll definitely help keep my furniture nice.

115 Kirk June 15, 2013 at 8:42 am

The Art of Manliness Book (Signed)
I think is what Id want. then I can review when the power is out, camping, or generally avoiding the internet all together. And its easier to show my 5 year old son who would stand still for the computer but would for a book.

116 M. Fielder June 15, 2013 at 8:51 am

I’m drawn to the notebooks like Nick Cassavetes.

117 Jake June 15, 2013 at 9:04 am

I would love the Art of Manliness book. It would be a wonderful addition to my bookshelf!

118 Kevin June 15, 2013 at 9:06 am

Always wanted a set of the notebooks. Already worked my way through two sets of stationary though, so maybe I would replenish my stock.

119 Tim June 15, 2013 at 9:06 am

The Kipling If poster. I think of that poem often.

120 Ed P. June 15, 2013 at 9:23 am

I’d have to go with the Bull Moose shirt.

121 Lior June 15, 2013 at 9:31 am

I’d love to get a Gentleman & Scholar T-shirt (small).
Side note: I’m a bit disappointed to see there are no AoM coffee mugs, and I think it’s something you should add to the store (I’d get one, plus it would go great with the coasters)

122 Bret Wood June 15, 2013 at 9:34 am

My favorite is the strengh and honor t-shirt.

123 Andrew Greanya June 15, 2013 at 9:36 am

I would like the “The Man in the Arena” Poster. I really like the quote, and Teddy looks smashing with his grin.

124 Dan Claborn June 15, 2013 at 9:40 am

I’d go with the Men’s Stationay: True North, Man, and Pipe

125 Patrick June 15, 2013 at 9:45 am

I’d like the Dog, Hunter, Mallard Stationary please.

126 Jarret Fuchs June 15, 2013 at 9:52 am

It would have to be a toss up between the Manvotionals book (which I’m already planning to buy with my next set of book purchases) or the Know Your Lifts poster set.

I would really like to see Ted Slampyak do some additional lifts, especially the bench press and pendlay rows, as they are the only lifts missing from the StrongLifts program. If those get added, I will be very tempted to purchase the posters.

127 Mark June 15, 2013 at 10:03 am

Nice work on these. I’d be stoked out with the “Strength & Honor” T-Shirt.

128 Colin June 15, 2013 at 10:11 am

I’d love the The Tools of Manliness T-Shirt. It looks amazing and hopefully I can win it. Great job on the store layout!

129 Shane Anderson June 15, 2013 at 10:13 am

I would like the Man in the Arena Poster. Teddy is an icon of mine and needs to smile from my wall.

If you are out (you seem to have a quantity of one) then I would like the Hustle T-shirt in a medium.

All things are determined by your amount of hustle.

130 Jason Danger June 15, 2013 at 10:26 am

Gentleman & Scholar T-shirt

131 Andrew June 15, 2013 at 10:27 am

I’m excited about the revamped store!

I’d love to have me some AoM Letterpress Coasters.

132 Anthony June 15, 2013 at 10:34 am

I want the cell phone etiquette posters.

133 Erik June 15, 2013 at 10:37 am

The Art of Manliness Book!

134 Mike Williams June 15, 2013 at 10:38 am

I would like the catch, trout and bass stationary – so very manly!

135 Andrew Mac June 15, 2013 at 10:44 am

The strength and honor shirt would be awesome to have.

136 Austin Pohl June 15, 2013 at 10:45 am

The phone etiquette poster set is awesome! Great job AoM!

137 Luke June 15, 2013 at 11:02 am

I’ve been wanting a rough rider t-shirt for a while.

138 Tyrel K. June 15, 2013 at 11:07 am

I would like the medium Gentleman & Scholar t shirt!

139 Tristan June 15, 2013 at 11:32 am

I would dig a set of the pocket notebooks! The notebook I have now is almost full, and I would much rather use one emblazoned with the AoM logo than some generic (and unmasculine) ‘Deep Thoughts’ logo.

140 Tony June 15, 2013 at 12:02 pm

Sullivan Wreath T-Shirt

141 Alexander Christensen June 15, 2013 at 12:07 pm

Strength and Honor T-Shirt

142 Victor P. June 15, 2013 at 12:15 pm

I really like the “Rough Riders” T-Shirt. Even dead, you don’t want to mess with TR.

143 Andrew C. June 15, 2013 at 12:29 pm

Lot of neat stuff . . . that Bull Moose t-shirt is fantastic! XL please.

144 Theodor Lundqvist June 15, 2013 at 12:47 pm

Great job:D It just keeps getting better and better! I would love to get the Art of Manliness Book, to learn more how to be manly:)

145 Jordan Neel June 15, 2013 at 12:54 pm

“Vires et Honestas” T-Shirt to wear on the days I’m not wearing my “AoM” Eagle shirt.
Two qualities that are seriously lacking in the world today. I’ll spread the word proudly!

146 James June 15, 2013 at 1:00 pm

Well I’d thoroughly enjoy a set of the pocket notebooks. The dollar store variety just don’t cut it, but there’s nary a physical store to buy better ones that I’d go to often.
I’m on AoM almost every day, though.

147 Seth F June 15, 2013 at 1:03 pm

Strength and honor t-shirt for sure…although the Sullivan and monogram shirts are pretty sweet as well.

148 Mathew June 15, 2013 at 1:05 pm

The “If” Poster is a definite favorite.

149 Dennis June 15, 2013 at 1:06 pm

Know Your Lifts Poster Set
That is an awesome poster.

150 Steve June 15, 2013 at 1:08 pm

The Art of Manliness book would be a great addition to my manly library.

151 Dennis June 15, 2013 at 1:10 pm

Looking for the
Know Your Lifts Poster Set
Awesome set.

152 Chad June 15, 2013 at 1:24 pm

Pocket notebook

153 Josh June 15, 2013 at 2:04 pm

Art of Manliness Book

154 Isaac June 15, 2013 at 2:33 pm

I would love to have the pocket notebook. Not only will I be able to record my “manly ponderings and ideas,” I could also commit “If” to memory in the process!

155 Cale June 15, 2013 at 2:55 pm

I’d love TR’s “The Man in the Arena” poster. It would be a nice addition to my study area.

156 Chip June 15, 2013 at 2:56 pm

Eat, drink, and be manly coasters. Now that I think about it, I’d be happy with two of each coaster as opposed to 25.

157 Matthew June 15, 2013 at 2:57 pm

T-shirt definitely, most practical to wear around and spread a message.

Hard to choose, but if I could, it’s “Fire and Fight”

158 Ethan June 15, 2013 at 2:58 pm

“Hustle” T-shirt, size medium, if you please.

159 Joel June 15, 2013 at 3:19 pm

I would like the Men’s stationery: Hunter, Moose, Deer. I’ve always wanted manly stationery on which to write small personal notes.

160 Chris Pope June 15, 2013 at 3:53 pm

Finally stationary with a manliness about it. No more flowers and “pretty” stamped all over. I like the gentleman, briefcase and straight razor a lot. Thanks.

161 Nathan June 15, 2013 at 3:54 pm

I’d have to take the phone etiquette posters.

162 Jared June 15, 2013 at 4:04 pm

A Bull Moose T-Shirt

163 Darren June 15, 2013 at 4:09 pm

100% would love a copy of the book –
The Art of Manliness Book (Signed)

164 Paul June 15, 2013 at 4:14 pm

The know your lifts poster set. Looks amazing!

165 Michael Ballard June 15, 2013 at 4:38 pm

I would pick the Art of Manliness Pocket Notebook. Not only are there great statements printed at the first and last pages, but the size is handy for writing down those manly notes when on the road, on the phone, or hiking or biking! I’d even give some of these great buys to my 3 sons…

166 Ryan Dunphy June 15, 2013 at 5:36 pm

By Jove I think you got it!! A much better interface. Bravo on the improvements. Kudos for a job well done. I like the notebooks. Keep up the good work.

167 Matt M. June 15, 2013 at 5:50 pm

The Art of Manliness Book for my son.

168 Alex June 15, 2013 at 6:48 pm

I could sure get some mileage out of the cell phone etiquette poster pack

169 David Prang June 15, 2013 at 6:48 pm

AoM Pocket Notebooks! Just switched to this method off larger model & iPhone…much better!

170 jimmm June 15, 2013 at 7:02 pm

AoM book, for sure!

171 Ben Badgley June 15, 2013 at 7:06 pm

Bull Moose T-Shirt for sure, I would love to wear it around UNC Chapel Hill.

172 Aiden June 15, 2013 at 7:28 pm

I personally really like the notebook sets. I have to carry around a notebook for work and these would be great. I just ordered the Art of Manliness book and am truly enjoying it. Thanks for what you do and this is a great website!

173 Patrick June 15, 2013 at 8:04 pm

Which do I want the most, can I say all of it?

Ok, I’ll pick just one. The Strength & Honor shirt, in a medium please!

174 Seth June 15, 2013 at 8:16 pm

Rudyard Kipling “If” Poster!

175 Jonathan Sheldon June 15, 2013 at 8:53 pm

I’ve always fancied that “If” poster.

176 Rich Baker June 15, 2013 at 9:04 pm

I’d choose stationary. I love to write letters. It’s my goal to have my daughters continue to write letters.

177 Daniel D June 15, 2013 at 9:44 pm

Gentleman & Scholar t-shirt

178 Sean June 15, 2013 at 9:45 pm

I would certainly love to have one of those pocket notebooks! Very convenient, and would make me feel much more sure about the pen I always carry around.

179 Michael S. Hilton June 15, 2013 at 9:52 pm

The Strength and Honor t-shirt looks great. Size Medium

180 Tony June 15, 2013 at 10:42 pm

Nothing I think says “me” better than gentalmam and scholar.

181 Aaron P June 16, 2013 at 12:24 am

The Know Your Lifts charts. They are fantastic.

182 Winkmeister June 16, 2013 at 12:50 am

I’m interested in the notebook sets.
They look easy to carry, and practical, with the quote and poem included.

I’m always writing down ideas or things to follow up on.
I like the stationery too, especially the sporting themes.

Wish you had some of those pics/ sayings embroidered on a collared shirt. T-shirts are for boys.

183 Alex June 16, 2013 at 1:27 am

I’d love the “Gentleman and Scholar” shirt if it’ll be offered in black again.

184 Matt June 16, 2013 at 10:33 am

I would like nothing more than an extra large ‘Those Who Hustle’ shirt. This design has been my laptop wall paper for a year now and I think it’s about time I sport it at the gym.

185 Dave June 16, 2013 at 11:05 am

I can use just about everything that’s on the site, but being a long-time admirer of all things TR, I’d have to go with the “Man in the Arena” poster.

186 Michael B June 16, 2013 at 11:39 am

Strength & Honor T-Shirt (Small)

187 James June 16, 2013 at 11:49 am

I am a history teacher and it would be great to have the “the Man in the Arena” poster up in my classroom.

188 Jimmy June 16, 2013 at 1:23 pm

The keep it classy phone etiquette poster.

189 Shane-San June 16, 2013 at 2:50 pm

I would like the “Gentleman & Scholar” t-shirt in the small size, please.

190 Jansen Legreid June 16, 2013 at 3:11 pm

I would love a set of “Eat, Drink, and be Manly” coasters! It’s time to add a little class to drinks.

191 Josh Davis June 16, 2013 at 4:58 pm

I’d like
The Art of Manliness Book (Signed)

192 Lis June 16, 2013 at 5:00 pm

I’d definitely get a set of coasters! And a few other things too, but the coasters are my favorite!

193 Ty June 16, 2013 at 5:24 pm

Gotta go with a classic. I would proudly wear a rough rider t. Thanks and keep up the good work!

194 Cal June 16, 2013 at 5:41 pm

WOW- The store looks AMAZING. Not only that, but it navigates so easily.

I’d really like the Strength & Honor T-shirt in a size small.
What better way to remember the pillars of manhood than by wearing them? (Not to mention, the design itself is fantastic.)

195 Nathan Le June 16, 2013 at 5:43 pm

The t-shirt of Sullivan wreath has captivated my manly spirit and has yet to yield. To have one would elate my entire wardrobe onto a new level.

196 Bruce June 16, 2013 at 5:44 pm

The new store looks great! I would love the pocket notebooks!

197 Josh June 16, 2013 at 6:00 pm

I’d love a medium “Gentleman & Scholar” t-shirt.

198 Michael June 16, 2013 at 6:16 pm

I love the new store. This is my favorite website and now it has gotten even better. There are many things that I would like to have from the store, but more than anything I would give just about anything to have the manvotional book. There is nothing better than a good book and it would be a great thing to have and treasure in all the years to come.

199 Zane June 16, 2013 at 7:14 pm

Hustle T-shirt, let people ponder those words when you walk by. Great site, nice to see the upgrade!

200 Evan June 16, 2013 at 8:10 pm

I would love to become the proud owner of the Strength & Honor T-Shirt!
