Holiday Etiquette: Giveaway General Style 783 Comments

Joshua Kissi: We’re now knee-deep in the holiday season, which has probably left more than a few of you in a haste to complete your holiday shopping. With that in mind, Travis and I decided to assemble another Street Etiquette first: A holiday giveaway contest.

We recognize the ample amount of support we receive from you all and felt the need to reward the readers with a contest with multiple items on the line. We hope our appreciation comes through with this offering of shoes, hats, and accessories.

The individuals behind some of these brands were courteous enough contribute these items for the giveaway at no cost. We know a holiday gift guide would have sufficed, but we wanted to go that extra mile for you, the readers, and include physical products.  We wanted to carefully curate the items included in this giveaway to properly reflect the Street Etiquette aesthetic that you have all become so supportive of.


Special thanks to all the readers who participated.
