February Giveaway Top 10 – Vote!

February 25th, 2013

After some heated late-night discussions in the Articles of Style office, here are our Top 10 entries to the February Giveaway, in no particular order.

It was very difficult to narrow it down to ten finalists. We received hundreds of photo entries from stylish men (and a few women wearing menswear) from all over the world. We had to make some very difficult decisions, to say the least.

Now it’s time to VOTE for your favorite outfit using the poll at the bottom of this post. Keep in mind you can only vote one time.

Voting ends February 27th at 11:59pm. One winner will be announced and contacted on February 28th.

Best of luck to all you stylish gents, one of you will be receiving a very nice prize package:



1. “Bernard” double breasted long wool coat by Reiss. Retail value: $540

2. “Sperry” ribbed crewneck sweater by Shipley & Halmos. Retail value: $325

3. Slim washed selvedge jean by Billy Reid. Retail value: $195

4. “Dalton” leather wingtip dress boots by Allen Edmonds. Retail value: $395

5. One pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses by Warby Parker (winner chooses any style). Retail value: $95

+ A chance to be featured in a post on Articles of Style.com!
