*Quick Giveaway*: Five Pairs of Dockers Khakis “Chivalry Is Not Dead” (Ends 02/19)

“Chivalry is not dead”
. First off, what is “chivalry”? I found a really straightforward definition from WiseGEEK and I like the way they defined it:

Chivalry in its modern sense tends to apply to the courtesies a man might pay to a lady. These include standing until a woman sits, offering a woman a seat on a bus, or opening a door for a woman. These actions are the remains of the once great code for knightly behavior espoused during the Middle Ages.

I am happy to say, I’m with a truly “modern renaissance” man who proves to me everyday that “chivalry is not dead”. From opening car doors for me to making me order my food from the menu first when we go out to eat at restaurants. On Valentine’s Day morning, he greeted me with a soft kiss and took me to a romantic dinner that night.

If you’ve seen the Dockers commercial on Super Bowl 2010, it showed men stepping up without their pants (although the commercial was about pants) and conveyed a message towards the end about men “wearing the pants”.

Oh, and how appropriate! I was asked by Dockers to host a giveaway for FIVE (5) pairs of Dockers Khaki pants for 5 lucky men who can prove that men ARE wearing the pants and that #chivalryisnotdead.


If your man showed you any act of Valentine’s Day Chivalry (everything from bringing you a bunch of flowers, a sweet box of chocolates to a surprise weekend get-away or anything similar), comment up on this post by noon EST on Friday, February 19th, 2010 and you will be eligible to win a pair of Dockers Khakis in the color of your choice- classic khaki or cool red!

    My husband didn’t do anything. We had discussed it and decided we just didn’t want to spend the money. It’s still a bummer… 🙁 Maybe next year!

    My fiancee got me a very nice card, and inside the card there were lottery tickets. But he hid it in the Sunday newspaper. I went to cut my coupons and there it was. Then he bought me a perfume which he placed next to my perfumes. When I got ready to go, I got us hockey tkts, I found it on the dresser. It was so creative!!
