Treat Your Sweetie! Win a $100 East Dane Gift Card

I’ve been a bit quiet about it, but this past April my fiance and I finally got married. As I look through our wedding photos, I find myself thinking about his sartorial growth over the past few years.

I remember walking into the house to see him in his wedding shoes – a pair of Cole Haan Air Madison’s – asleep on the couch. It was the second time he’s let me invest more than $60 on a pair of shoes for him, and his words were, “They were so comfy I fell asleep.”

I think about walking into Brooks Brothers to find his wedding suit – and him going directly for the white linen suit. He said, “I want to try that one,” and it was the suit he walked out with.


Over the years, it’s taken him time to warm up to fashion: that fashion is an expression of who he is; that fashion can impact the way he feels about himself, and it can impress an opinion about him on the outside world.  And you know – it’s kind of great that he and I can share that with one another now.  Hopefully, that’s something you and your sweetheart can share with one another.

East Dane & Dramatis Personae are teaming up to give YOU the chance to treat your sweetie – and remind him/her how great fashion can feel in their life.

Whether it’s your hard working husband, the father of your children, your sweet partner, or maybe you just fancy something for yourself – we’re giving you the chance to win one of two $100 East Dane Gift cards! Grab some stylish mens sneakers or binge shops from the 50% of mens section- think of this as a chance to splurge on your sweetie!

I would get my sweetie a new book bag, like this Herschel Heritage DayPack!

I don’t know what I would select for him. He knows what he likes so it’s best to let him choose. I don’t interfere with his sartorial decisions!

Fantastic pick of the Brooks Brothers white linen suit!

I love both you & your boo’s shoes – so cute! (C loves Cole Haan too ;) )

East Dane: I had never heard of them before! Classy stuff though – I think I’d get him the Gingham sport shirt or the Ashland jeans in gray…that Public School leather jacket is pretty badass, but that’s definitely more my style than his ;)

I love that East Dane carries Apolis, their chore jacket is an incredible piece and definitely where the card would go:

Love the blog. Good luck and Godspeed.

I, too, have never heard of East Dane. After looking through their selection I feel I can definitely help spruce up my boostank’s wardrobe. He seems almost like your husband, trying to find his own personal style that makes him feel comfortable and dapper at the same time. There is so much to choose from but this summer blazer grabbed my attention:

Buy one of the leather jackets they offer

My boyfriend would look amazing in these chino pants from his favorite brand! He has really picked up on fashion and now he dresses better than me!! I need to catch back up but for now I would love to reward him for everything that he does for me.

Clinton N June 7, 2014 at 1:28 pm

Thanks for doing this! I’d definitely get my SO a Reigning Champ sweatshirt. Built to last, with a fantastic fit.

Abby June 7, 2014 at 1:18 pm

He’s got a good but this jacket would be right up his alley!

His birthday is also coming up, so this’d be a Father’s Day + Birthday gift. Thanks!

If he gets this, he better not ask for a motorcycle next…though he would look a bit suave asking for one.

Daniel June 7, 2014 at 12:02 pm

Congratulations on tying the knot! If I could afford these double monkstrap shoes by Loake, I’d never have to. (Yes, I’m my own sweetie, for now…but I’m hopeful—I won’t be a monk forever.)

My cutie has been eyeing the Apolis Wool Chore Coat for awhile, hopefully one day I can surprise him with one.

Thanks a bunch!

Sang June 7, 2014 at 11:35 am

Congrats to you guys!

I’d look pretty fab in these that happen to cost exactly the amount of the giveaway!

Jeans or accessories.

Whitney June 7, 2014 at 10:27 am

Love you guys! Garren looks so dapper in those photos!

I have to say, my boo Kyle would look pretty good in one of those Marc Jacobs tees – especially the Hazy Dots one!

debiparna June 7, 2014 at 1:30 am
