Everything in my March 2020 Culture Carton!
Soft Landing Pen ($10) The pen came in a smooth and luxurious custom-made pouch!
It’s a well-designed, lightweight pen made from premium quality materials. The rose gold colored coating made it look more elegant!
This pen also comes with flat cap and a built-in clip that you can easily slide through on your shirt, coat, or pocket.
This pen doesn’t just write exceptionally well, it also makes an excellent statement every time you’re using it!
Softlanding Notebook ($20) Since I got a pen, it just seems fitting to get a notebook where I can jot down notes or lists!
The notebook made has a black, soft, and flexible cover!
The paper has a nice quality, it’s not thin so it’s comfortable to write on. The pages are lined as well. Another feature is a built-in marker made from a black ribbon.
It also comes with an elastic pen holder on the side!
No Country For Old Men by Cormac McCarthy ($8.40)
In his blistering new novel, Cormac McCarthy returns to the Texas-Mexico border, setting of his famed Border Trilogy. The time is our own, when rustlers have given way to drug-runners and small towns have become free-fire zones. One day, a good old boy named Llewellyn Moss finds a pickup truck surrounded by a bodyguard of dead men. A load of heroin and two million dollars in cash are still in the back. When Moss takes the money, he sets off a chain reaction of catastrophic violence that not even the law–in the person of aging, disillusioned Sheriff Bell–can contain.As Moss tries to evade his pursuers–in particular a mysterious mastermind who flips coins for human lives–McCarthy simultaneously strips down the American crime novel and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible and as bloodily contemporary as this morning’s headlines. No Country for Old Men is a triumph.
This month’s featured book is written by Cormac McCarthy, an American writer known for his Southern Gothic, Western, and Post-Apocalyptic genres.
The story rounds mostly on the three main characters: Llewellyn Moss, Sheriff Ed Tom Bell, and Anton Chigurh and how they operate with their different philosophies in life.
It’s a meticulous novel that scrutinizes the human struggle towards the definition of morality and ethics, especially in some instances that measures their decisions, actions, and beliefs in confronting violence and corruption.
VeganWear Duffle Bag ($90) This handy duffle bag is perfect for packing for a sudden weekend getaway!
It’s an eco-friendly vegan bag made from polyurethane microfibers that provides a similar texture just like that of real leather.
This bag, with a measurement of 18″ x 8″ x 13″ and interior organizational pockets, definitely has enough room for a number of pants, undergarments, and shirt.
The bag comes with a detachable shoulder strap and dual rolled vegan leather handles, making it easier to carry.
It also comes with a 100% polyester reinforced lining for durability.
This month’s Culture Carton is impressive, as always! All the curated items are not just practical, but are season-friendly as well! Plus they were specifically tailored for a true gentleman. The featured book of the month has a unique and intriguing story, and I’m totally hooked! My favorite item in this month’s box is the black duffel bag. It has a premium look and feel, definitely a bag you’d love to carry around for short trips. They never fail to come up with classic themes and items that are very useful for men’s grooming and well being. It’s definitely a must-try subscription for all the gentlemen out there (or aspiring gents-to-be)!
What’s your favorite item this month?
I love Cormic McCarthy and have read lots of his books, but not this one. The bag, notebook and pen look awesome. I would buy this sub as a woman, because many times the items, besides the book, are great for either sex, but not all the time. Plus I have read almost every book they have every included. And they are all great selections. It is a great box for building a quality personal library if you haven’t ready much of the late 20th century cannon of contemporary literature. Thanks for the review!
