New Bespoke Post Boxes for February
For February, Bespoke Post has launched two new collections to enhance your wardrobe. Here are the details on each box:
The right sock needs some flash to turn heads, plus the just-so details that pair with your expertly assembled getup.
We’re setting you up with an exclusive collection packed with seven of ‘em that’ll see you through weekday meetings and weekend hikes alike. The versatile range of colors and styles will brighten your day from the feet up with a healthy dose of put-together attitude, just in time for the springtime weather.
These pairs are from Etiquette Clothiers, who’ve perfected the art of men’s basics: their soft and strong yarns, careful craftsmanship, and sophisticated design add up to collections that are as refined as they are comfortable. Each sock is knit from the finest Italian cotton in 240 seconds — twice that of the competition — for a finished product with all the right details that comfortably fits sizes 8 – 12.
Meet your new sock drawer standouts:
Branson, Blue Polka Dots – Value $24
Break the boardroom mold with an inky black and navy to keep things understated, but with polka dots that will catch the eye of anyone who takes a closer look. They’ll make a subtle statement the next time you flash some ankle while suited up at the office.
Grizzly, Twisted Red Boot Socks – Value $30
The rugged outdoors don’t stand a chance against these heavy-hitters. The twisted yarns pair perfectly with boots, but the weave is light and breathable enough not to weigh you down during warm-weather hikes.
Patriot, Crosswalk Stripes – Value $24
Heathered grey makes for a light backdrop to colors that need no introduction for a pair that’s perfect for wearing with jeans.
Midas, Luxe Gold – Value $24
The luxe mercerized cotton is super soft so that you stay cozy and comfortable, while the powerful gold makes a serious statement. Go ahead and pop some color into an otherwise conservative getup.
Marathoner, Ankle Needle Stripes – Value $18
The super fine maroon stripes and subtle white hatching will kick your plain old athletic socks to the curb.
Throne, Royal Ribbed Blue – Value $24
Conservative teal gets a subtle face lift from narrow pencil stripes, which means that these are built for the boardroom. Use ‘em as a killer complement to a stark gray suit.
Undercover, No show polka dots – Value $15
Just because they don’t show doesn’t mean they can’t look good. They’re meant to be worn underneath loafers and boat shoes for a sockless look (without the sockless feel), but the rich burgundy and navy accents show that you even put thought into the the little things.
Based on my estimates, the Swagger box is worth $159.
Anyone can suit up, but it’s the details that make the difference.
We’ve got four of ’em. Even the most perfectly tailored ensemble can use some help from a well-placed accessory, but going too brash and bold is a quick path to overkill. We say to break the mold and rotate through these unexpected options that stand out, while keeping the design sharp, classic, and versatile. Wear them with confidence, either individually or mixed and matched, the next time you button up and watch the double takes pile up.
Double-Sided Chambray Bow Tie, Everett Clothing – Value $45
Adjustable for neck sizes 13.75″ to 17″
Buttoned up doesn’t have to mean blending in. Our custom designed bow tie is handcrafted in Brooklyn by Everett Clothing, who made them just for us in a limited run. The sturdy cotton and chambray give your getups a modern and rakish edge, and the unique design means you can tie it four different ways: pin dotted burgundy, grey chambray, or either one with a wrap of the other. Don’t think you can pull it off? Think again. It’ll give some old-school class to an office-ready grey suit, but it can work just as well with your weekend and after-hours looks. All you need is a touch of confidence to channel your inner dandy and set yourself apart from the pack.
Brass ‘Links II’ Cufflinks, J.L. Lawson – Value $70
If you’re a fan of French cuff shirts, you already know the understated sophistication the right pair of cufflinks can add to your suit. If you’re not, you will be after seeing these. Each piece of shining, high-quality brass is individually, carefully, and painfully machined by hand in Joshua Tree, CA with incredible attention to detail. The impressive end result is a simple but seriously eye-catching complement to your next dressed-up outfit.
Fabric Lapel Flower, 1″, hook+Albert – Value $30
Pocket squares and ties are great, but what about when you need a little something extra? hook+Albert’s take on a lapel flower gives an unexpected edge to your outfit, and is just as sharp as suiting up with a freshly-cut boutonniere (but a whole lot easier to care for). The best part is that the neutral black/white combo won’t clash with your favorite outfits, so you can still pile on whatever accessories you’d like without worrying. Flowers are hand cut and made on the East Coast.
Blue-Grey Chambray Pocket Square, 12″ x 12“, Blank Label – Value $30 approx
They may be known for their handmade, custom dress shirts, but Blank Label can also make one hell of a pocket square. Their lightweight chambray version is luxuriously soft with an inky two-toned hue that’ll anchor your suit.
Based on my estimates, the Made box is worth $175.
