    Do I still have time to enter the contest since it’s the 23rd, I know the last day it says tomorrow the 24th, just wondering, thanks.

      • Miguel

        Thanks Alex, I’ll be submitting tomorrow.

  • Zachary W

    The Dalton is the cordovan version right ;) ?

  • Zach A.

    Just as a warning, Twitter seems to be a bit grumpy towards the post. It may try to suspend your account. Not that big of a deal, though.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Hmm. What makes you say that Zach?

  • Aww

    I’ve got only no-head photos. Damn. Or is that acceptable?

  • Acronymic

    just a quick question. can I use my newly opened twitter and fb accounts with only a few fans?

    • http://tsbmen.com Townsend

      Absolutely! Good luck!

  • Silvester

    Hey, i want to ask u something, if i send an e-mail, i receive a mail back for confirmation? or something like that?

  • Octavian

    Hi guys,
    I want to ask you, if being from eastern europe, romania to be more precise, makes me too far away for participating?

    • Silvester

      can we have an answer, Dan?

    • http://tsbmen.com Townsend

      You can still enter!

  • Bill Speakman

    Are there any specifications on file size? Should images be sent as attachments, links, ??

    • Bill Speakman

      Ps. The message we’re instructed to post appears to be 6 characters too long for twitter.

      • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

        No it isn’t.

      • Bill Speakman

        Nope scratch that.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Whatever is easier for you Bill.

  • Josh

    Oh man, just entered!

  • Ashley

    Are ladies eligible to participate for a chance to win the February Reader Giveaway?

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier


      This is about menswear, which is not restricted to men.

      As long as the outfit is fully (or mostly) menswear, you’re welcome to enter!

      • Ashley

        Hooray!! You made my day!!

  • Rich

    My Facebook page is really private, so non-friends wouldn’t see that I made that message my status. Am I still eligible?

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier


  • http://style-cool-ture.tumblr.com/ Iván Romo

    Here in Mexico the heat it’s already starting, anyway, i’ll wear it in my house….. good job guys.

  • Michael Kombo

    How’s it going Dan, I assume that us folk all the way out here in Africa can’t participate?

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Sure you can!

      As it says in the post, readers from anywhere in the world are welcome to enter for a chance to win.

      • Michael Kombo

        That’s cool…you’ll be surprised how many competitions say ‘everywhere’ but don’t quite follow through (fine print and all that).

        Kudos on the blog

        • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

          I feel you. We have a worldwide readership (last month, 198 different countries) so we gotta show love to all.

          Good luck!

          • Robert


  • Ole

    Ah, to bad. Would love to participate, but I hate to spam my friends on every social media platform.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Feel free not to participate Ole.


  • Ace F.

    Great prizes as usual.
    I will definitely give this a try now.

  • Bogdan

    These items are just amazing!…I will kill someone just to win this contest. ( Dan, Alex, Wes, Towni…do you have an enemy?:D )

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Haha. We’re lovers, not haters. Good luck playboy

  • Andrew

    In reference to the Brian who posted his comment at 2:31 PM on Feb. 1 (not sure if both Brians are the same person), based on a similar question and respective response from Dan in the January give away regarding someone who did not have a Twitter page, I would assume that a person would have be on both Facebook and Twitter to enter the contest.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Thanks Andrew. In the spirit of fairness, the rules have to be the same for everybody.

      Good luck!

      • Bogdan

        I don’t understand why are people complaining about making a twitter or a facebook acount…if you want to be part of the contest, make a god damn acount!

  • Brian


    Any news on the TSB shop opening?

  • The best part

    about these contests just might be the items posted. That Reiss coat is tempting at $270 sale price.

  • cam

    good luck to all…great contest dan

  • Brian

    Asked before but never got an answer, so I’ll ask again: I don’t have a FB page. Does this preclude me from the contest? I do have a Twitter account. Thanks.

    • Acronymic

      Same here, but without twitter as well.

    • Bogdan


    • Brian


    • Mxolisi

      And as it was stated before without a facebook or twitter you can’t enter the contest.

      • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

        Thank you.

    • http://tsbmen.com Alex Crawford

      Sorry man, we have to keep the rules the same for everyone.

      • Brian


  • Deyan

    I’m so excited! Great competition and prizes.
