The Gentleman’s Box is a monthly men’s subscription box providing the required essentials for the savvy man. Boxes contain specially-selected items that range from accessories to grooming. When you subscribe, you also receive a subscription to GQ magazine for your first year, which is delivered separately through the mail.
TIP: This box is still available through the last day of the month!
DEAL: Save $5 on your first regular box. Use coupon code HELLO.
The presentation is simple and elegant, making this a great ready-to-gift subscription.
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. 14:
“Try not to become a man of success but rather a man of value.” – Albert Einstein
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 September 2019 box!
Honorable Beast Bracelet ($20) This bracelet can be worn whether you’re dressed up or dressed down, making such a versatile accessory. They beads are made of wood.
Gent Life Business Card Holder ($15) Sleek and handy, this business card holder is easy to carry around wherever I go. Its cover is made with faux leather.
Inside, there’s a single slot for all your business cards.
Sock Fancy Socks ($12) These socks are made with 200-needle combed cotton, which means it’s softer, more comfortable, and more durable to wear than regular ones.
Aside from combed cotton, the crew style socks are made with polyester, nylon, and spandex. They’re designed in Atlanta, Georgia and made in China.
The toes and heels are in dark blue. There are also orange and dark blue stripes all over the socks.
The cuffs are in gray. They fit sizes 8-14 for men and they fit me comfortably. No slipping down either.
Windsor Tie Co. Tie ($29) To match with the socks, here’s a rust-colored tie with dark blue polka dots.
If you look closer at the fabric, it bears intricate patterns as well. It’s a bold color choice, but still a sophisticated one. This will go well with navy blue, gray, or beige/cream suits.
Honorable Beast Scarf ($35) Just in time for fall, they included a scarf to complete the ensemble!
It’s soft and lightweight! The fringes at the ends made the scarf extra stylish.
This versatile scarf can be worn in a lot of ways, whether draped, over your shoulder, or under your jacket.
I got another complete ensemble!
Gentleman’s Box makes dressing up easier with their well-coordinated ensemble of accessories, including a tie and a bracelet. This month, they even included an awesome scarf which is perfect for the upcoming season. I also appreciate the inclusion of the cardholder. It’s about time I switch to a sleek and handy one. I’m pretty much satisfied overall. It’s a great subscription for anyone who dresses up regularly. You don’t even have to think of what to pair with which because they already sort that out for you in the style guide!
