A shirt giveaway for Father's Day

Ecoths shirt with Boston terrier credit Kirsten Akens 2015

I've had a couple giveaways on the blog specifically for women, thanks to my ambassador gig through Aventura, a ladies' lifestyle apparel brand. (In fact, there's one still up.)

Well, today I've got a giveaway for the guys, also thanks to Aventura.

How's that possible? Aventura's got a brother brand: Ecōths (pronounced "ecos").

The name blends the words eco and ethos, and, like Aventura, both are key to the business. From their website:

The foundation of Ecōths is combining natural fabrics with style, comfort, and personality while accentuating and shaping one’s character and guiding beliefs and ideals towards community and creating a better place to live.

Ecōths uses primarily organic fibers ... Our desire with Ecōths is to combine urban fashion elements with rugged outdoor influence to create one cohesive brand that unites style, community, and goodness.

Just in time for Father's Day, Ecoths sent over a shirt for my husband to try. His only 'child,' our Boston terrier Lucy, loves it because when I wash it, and lay it on the bed before hanging, it's the softest spot in the house. (I do try to keep her off the clean clothes, but it's challenging sometimes.)

Jokes aside, we're both happy with the shirt, aka the Garrett (available in M-XXL). I think it fits him nicely, the 100-percent organic cotton is super soft to the touch and it washes well. He likes the style, the trim details, and the color (listed as "cloudburst," a versatile grey, white and red plaid).

If you'd like a chance at winning an Ecoths shirt of your own (or for your favorite father or father figure), check out the catalog here and let me know in a comment below which shirt catches your eye. (U.S. residents only.) I'll toss all the entries into a hat and select one name on Saturday, June 20, just in time to celebrate the win on Father's Day.

P.S. It's also worth knowing that Ecoths supports the fight against hunger around the country. For every U.S. purchase, three meals will be provided to someone in need through regional food banks. How's that for ethos?
