Giveaway: Smart Turnout watchstraps

Wednesday, February 6, 2013
I'm a long-time fan of Smart Turnout; a real success story of a company which started off with a former Scots Guards Captain selling school and regimental stuff online (socks, ties, cummerbunds, even dressing gowns) and has now opened its first real shop in Princes Arcade. Which is, of course, in the St James district of London. Ideal.

Wearing accessories with school, club or regimental stripes is a fine British tradition and one which has done a lot to influence traditional and 'preppy' style here and across the pond in the states, so I have a lot of time for a company offering such a wide range (even if I myself am disinclined to over-accessorise in the old black'n'blue).

One of the products I have always fancied is one of their watches with the replaceable straps. These are styled after the traditional NATO watch, although Smart Turnout offer a range of styles, and can be refitted with natty webbing straps in any of a wide range of school, university and regimental colours. They're lovely watches, unique in that they are suitable for casual or sporty wear but also, because of their military association, not inappropriate with a suit.

Anyway, the good news is that Smart Turnout have kindly agreed to give me five of their straps (just the straps, I'm afraid!) to give away to my readers. It's the first time I've done something like this, and I'm hoping it'll be of interest to you all. All you need to do to be in with a chance is to retweet the tweet below. Make sure to keep the @StJamesStyle bit in, as that's how I'll find all the people who've entered. Then, after midnight on Wednesday the 13th of Feb, I will randomly select 5 people who've retweeted this, and they will be able to pick any strap from the Smart Turnout website, which I will then send them. Simple, eh?

By participating in the giveaway, you agree to the terms and conditions.

A few things to note in particular: any re-tweets after the first will be discounted and will not increase your chance of winning, and anyone discovered to have created more than one account to enter will be disqualified entirely.
Winners will be contacted by DM on Twitter, so please follow the @StJamesStyle account (at least for a week or two!)
Winners who do not respond with a choice of strap and a postal address within five working days of being notified will lose the prize and an alternative winner will be selected.
Any contact details requested as part of this will be used only to supply the winner with the item, and will then be deleted. They will not be disclosed to any third party, including Smart Turnout.
