This month’s box is dedicated to honoring our favorite Rocket Man.
They usually have some interior packaging to protect any watches, cufflinks, or other delicate items.
Each box includes a copy of The Gentleman’s Post, a well-designed booklet describing the products in the box and offering styling suggestions for each one.
The Gentleman’s Tip No. 18:
Every gentleman should have good intentions, so always be honest and upfront with your relationships.
The Gentlemen’s Post walks through everything in the box, and more. There is a handy table of contents that gives a quick list of the contents and the total retail value of the box. They regularly have a feature that introduces us to members of the Gentleman’s Box team.
The booklet starts off with a style guide to give you some visual cues on wear and pairing options.
Every page is dedicated to each item — they include the usual picture and blurb, but they also include a handy section denoting the level of attire (e.g. formal, business, casual) for which the item is appropriate, as well as colors that best complement it. They also sometimes have discount promotions littered throughout.
This booklet is really informative!
It even includes random style tips every man must know!
Everything in my August 2019 box!
Oak & Stone Lapel Pin ($15) Lapel pins add a touch of style to any suit. This month, I got a gold-colored pin.
It’s shaped like eyeglasses! I like that it’s smooth and classy, and it makes a great conversation starter as well.
As usual, the pocket square, tie, and socks come in matching colors.
Red Stag & Hind Silk Pocket Square ($39) This month’s feature pocket square is made with Italian silk! It’s soft and smooth, definitely luxurious looking.
The pocket square feature vintage flower prints. The purple base color surprisingly looked great with the light blue border.
Tom’s Stylist Tie ($20) To match with the pocket square is a striped tie in purple and white! The color might be an unusual choice for a tie, but I like it.
The white stripes are thinner than the purple stripes. It looks cool and sophisticated.
It does have a premium feel! According to the booklet, this tie will look great with navy blue, gray and black suits.
King x Portland Socks ($15) Designed in Toronto, these socks offer comfort and style whether you’re pairing them with a formal or smart casual attire.
These knitted socks are made with 75% cotton, 23% nylon, and 2% spandex. They’re machine washable.
The base color is lilac, with dark purple toes, heels, and cuffs. These fit me nicely.
There are also white polka dots all over, except for the foot part.
Ace Of Spades Stereo Earbuds ($35) These earbuds are compatible with various devices, including smartphones, iPods, and MP3s.
The box contains a pair of earbuds with a 3.5 mm plug diameter.
These earbuds are wired. I also got two pairs of extra earbuds to find the perfect size.
These earbuds fit my ears comfortably. The sound they produce is crystal clear, great whether for taking calls or listening to music and podcasts.
The earbuds also come with volume control buttons.
Gentleman’s Box delivers nothing but high-quality accessories for men. This month’s curation includes a pair of socks, a pocket square, and a tie, which are all in purple. It’s easy for me to pair these asccessories with various items in my wardrobe, especially because the booklet includes a style and pairing guide. I also like the unique lapel pin, as it makes a unique conversation starter. This month, they even included a pair of earbuds I can use comfortably wherever I go. I’m pretty much impressed with this month’s box and I hope they keep doing a great job of curating well-crafted men’s accessories!
