dockers wear the pantsDockers is challenging men to love what they do or get busy doing what they love by presenting one lucky winner with $100,000 (post tax!) in the “Wear the Pants™ Project” contest, launching February 1, 2011. Dockers is also giving away an additional 43 “Man Grants” (total value: over $75,000 in services, tools, resources, or cash) each week through the end of November 2011.

The contests are about encouraging men to take action – whether it’s that small project that never got done or a bigger life’s passion. To enter the contests, men must submit a plan for actualizing their dreams, whether professional or personal, on the Dockers Facebook page.

The projects can be whatever a man wants to do- from launching their own business, to producing that movie, or designing and building surfboards- just provided they are stepping up to the plate and doing something they love.
