191 Unlimited {Review & Giveaway - 3 winners!} Stylish apparel for men and boys

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

Back in college when my husband and I met, he had his own... shall we say... "personal style." Which, to be more accurate, means that he wasn't really all that stylish. Fast forward the 12 years that we've been together (has it really been that long? Are we that old?) and he has actually turned out fairly fashionable.

I'd like to say that I had something to do with the change in colors and my husband's all around better clothing choices, but I really can't take all the credit. A lot has is due to discovering and being introduced to men's clothing brands that make it easy to wear chic and comfortable pieces, giving him the opportunity to look good with mix and match apparel for every occasion. The perfect example of this is the high quality, unique clothing available for men and boys from 191 Unlimited.

Founded in 2002 by best friends and college grads, Parth Sharma and Girish Karnani took $191 to the casino and won enough money to launch their first 191 Unlimited collection. As well as following four basic principles with their clothing (awesome fit, extreme comfort, innovative detailing and affordability), these aren't your typical corporate CEOs in stuffy suits.

When they need to end the debate over what color one of their shirts should be, Parth and Girish don't call a board meeting, they play a round of Flip Cup, a competitive drinking game. Who says you can't have fun and be successful at the same time?

And their great line of clothing includes everything necessary to outfit a man in style. With both long sleeve and short sleeve button-up men's shirts, fashionable tees, shorts and pants and even a few new skinny ties to complete the look, 191 Unlimited is a great combination of hip and trendy while also being classic and casual. It wasn't all that difficult to talk my husband into modeling his new threads to show just that:

Available in sizes 30 through 38, 191 Unlimited's Khaki Pants can easily be dressed up or down and will still look great. As they only come with a 34" inseam, these pants were a tiny bit too long for my husband, but nothing that a little hemming couldn't fix. And the included black and white belt was not only a happy bonus, but a fun way to accessorize the look.

The slim cut of the Worthy Opponent and the Tried and Truth shirts give them a fashionable, tailored look - just be sure to order one size larger than usual to make sure that they fit. I really liked the stitching detailing on the Worthy Opponent and the way that both shirts were incredibly soft and light.

The Tried and Truth shirt also had a uniqueness to it, particularly with the cute little buttons and the way they were hidden up the front behind an extra layer of fabric. It is the extra details like these, as well as embroidery, printing, appliqu├ęs and more that set 191 Unlimited apart from these rest of men's apparel companies.

They haven't forgotten about the younger crowd that want to look stylish as well, though. 191 Unlimited also has a line of boys' shirts to keep the next generation as fashionably dressed as their fathers. With shirts as small as a size 4 and running up to a boys' XL, you can start dressing toddlers in 191 Unlimited and keep them looking good all the way through adulthood.

For high quality fashion that will make the men and boys in your life stand out from the crowd, 191 Unlimited has the items you're looking for. They're unique, well-made and will hold to up the wear and tear that males tend to put their clothing through. Plus, due to the generosity of this fun-loving company, not one, not two, but three people will get to check out their great apparel in person, because...

3 lucky people will win their choice* of shirt
from 191 Unlimited! ARV $89!


*Winners will list their top 3 choices (for men or boys) and the prize will be determined by 191 Unlimited's available styles and sizes at the close of this giveaway. Their shirts are just that popular!
