Bespoke Post April Options

It’s Bespoke Post selection time! Remember – use coupon code ADDICTION to save 25% off your first box! (FYI – the Worn Box has customization item this month – so make sure to check your account and pick the variation you want!)

There are three new box options this month:

Bespoke Post Lather

Lather

Pure Badger Brush with Horn Resin Handle, NY Shaving Co
This is the sign of a man who really knows how to shave. A brush generates more lather using less cream, lifts your whiskers up to thoroughly coat them, and gently exfoliates your skin. All of which gives you a closer and more comfortable shave. This one is made from pure grade badger hair, which easily trumps boar or synthetic versions due to the softness, density, and absorbency of the bristles. Try it once and you’ll never go back.

Chrome Shaving Stand, NY Shaving Co
A proper shave brush deserves a proper home. And this indispensable brush accompaniment doesn’t just look extra handsome on your bathroom counter; it also keeps your bristles in the best possible shape between uses, since it lets the water drip down rather than pooling at the base of your brush and ruining the thing. Rest your brush on it once you’re done shaving to let the bristles air dry, keeping the softness intact and prolonging the brush’s lifespan.

Pre-Shave Oil, 2 oz, NY Shaving Co
Before you lather up, soften and smooth your whiskers with a quick splash of this. The small batch-blended oils will more thoroughly prep your face for shaving, making your blade’s passes even easier. And the extra layer of protection to your skin makes razor burn and ingrown hairs a thing of the past.

Shaving Soap, 4 oz, NY Shaving Co
An older approach to shaving cream that’s every bit as effective today. Add a few drops of water and then whip up a rich lather with your brush. In addition to being TSA-friendly, it’s superior to your standard gel since it washes natural oils away from your skin and whiskers. That allows water to more easily penetrate the stubble, which makes them easier to shave off.

Shaving Mug, American Mug & Stein
A classic companion to shaving soap. Stow yours in here, then use your brush to create plenty of foam. And when you’re done, it’ll look a whole lot more elegant resting on your bathroom counter than a gunked-up can of shaving cream would.

Your bathroom counter is about to look a lot sharper.

Charred

Charred

Walnut Handled Open Flame Essentials, 15″ long, Lamson & Goodnow
These US-made tools of the trade won’t ever quit, no matter how many BBQs you have. Each piece is made in Shelburne Falls, MA and packs a lifetime warranty from Lamson & Goodnow, a down home company who’ve been making cutlery since 1837. They’re the oldest American cutlery manufacturer in the game, and you get every year of that hometown experience in this carefully produced set.

The kit includes a heavy-grade spatula, tongs, and grilling fork. Each piece is hewn from a single piece of hardened, tempered steel and then inlaid with a rich walnut handle. That high grade wood boasts an extra heavy weight and silky feel to add some tough refinement to your setup.

Pineapple & Habañero Hot Sauce, 8.5 oz, Bravado Spice Co.
Juicy pineapple and fiery habañero peppers meld into one hell of a hot sauce that carefully balances sweet and spicy. It’s a knockout on wings, pulled pork, seared scallops, blackened chicken… basically, anything coming off your grill. Double down and mix some of the stuff into a cocktail while the coals warm up.

Maple Wood Chips, 1-2 Uses, Klassen Wood Co.
Soak these chips (from a sustainability-oriented, fourth-generation family operation) for 15 minutes, wrap them in aluminum foil, and toss the whole thing over your coals or on top of your burner. It’ll turn your grill into a makeshift smoker, giving your dinner an extra kick of woody maple flavor. Try it on cuts that are sizable enough to need more time on the grill, like a top round or flank steak, to give them an extra kick. Or go all-out and cook your own low-and-slow brisket or pork shoulder.

Light the coals, tie on your apron, and bring your appetite.

Stow

 

Stow

Utility Roll, Line of Trade
An elegant yet heavy-duty way to carry, store, or protect whatever needs carrying, storing, or protecting.

Store your watches, cuff links, tie bars, and other treasures for a more refined way to care for and keep track of it all. Or toss it in your gym bag or glove compartment filled with necessities like chapstick, contact lenses, or a pair of shades. Or keep it in your kitchen drawer to house your small-scale tools and get rid of the clutter.

Whatever you use it for, your gear will fit snugly in the sturdy, multi-sized pockets, and you can lock in the smaller stuff in the velcro-secured flap pocket to keep it all safe & sound. The heavy canvas will keep out moisture, too, since the fabric is imbued with a water-repellent finish. It’s made here in the US, so you can rest easy that it’ll last for ages and look good every step of the way.

Need some inspiration for what to pack in it? We’ll start you off with some of favorites, and leave the rest to you:

3-in-1 Screwdriver, Miller Cast Products
This simple addition to your toolkit pays big dividends. The 127-year-old company handcrafts them in the heartland of Pennsylvania, out of sand-cast brass from the company’s original foundry. Keep it on hand for quick fixes around the house.

Carpenter Pencils, 3-Pack, Line of Trade
These tougher takes on your standard #2 are fit for any project. They’ve got an oval shape to keep them from rolling, and the larger surface area makes ’em easier to grip. And for an extra cool factor, you sharpen it the old school way: with a knife and some elbow grease.

Waterproof Notebook, Field Notes
This notebook is the epitome of “resilient,” since the high visibility binding and ultra tough synthetic paper are just about everything-proof. Water, wind, ballistics, acid,electromagnets, extreme temperatures… you can throw any of them at this book and your notes will be just fine.

Chapped Lip Remedy, Buckler’s
Nutrient-rich protection for your lips with a matte finish, fit for job site and first dates alike. Castor oil blocks harsh weather, peppermint oil soothes and cools, and avocado oil & shea butter moisturize.

Cologne, L’Etat Libre d’Orange
Stay fresh with a cologne that’s got an accent. This sample-sized blend comes straight from Paris, where L’Etat makes their brilliantly acclaimed scents.

Carry on.

  1. We decided to skip this month. We don’t have a need for the grilling tools or the shave set, although both look like great quality. I like Stow but for me the value isn’t there. I already have most of the items it comes with so I’d be paying for the utility roll.

    I’ve got to rave about Bespoke for a minute thought because is one of my favorite subs. I love the variety from month to month, careful curation, high quality items, and that they make it so easy to switch boxes or opt out for a month. I’ve found that I like or use some of the items they send just as much as my boyfriend. Even so, I’d LOVE if they’d start a sub that was specifically for the ladies. I imagine that it would be pretty amazing and I would probably never be able to opt out because I’d want it all!

    • Shooot, typos. It should say: “though because it is one of my favorite subs.” I need more coffee.

  2. Looks like I got my wish – a bbq box! Unfortunately like the other commentors, I already have the tools. The stow box looks nice and I tried to tell myself it would be great for travel…if I didn’t have six empty makeup bags that would serve the same purpose. Not really interested in the items that come with the wrap. So hooray! All my subs were skipped this month!

  3. So glad I tried this box out. Thanks Liz! The items feel really special.

  4. Finally decided to do Knotted a second time…. teen son loved the first 3 ties and said he would be glad to have 3 more (he has to wear a tie on varsity game days and he plays sports all 3 seasons so that’s a lotta ties).

    I think Charred is awesome if someone doesn’t already have tools….but we do. And I felt like if I got Stow I would always just be searching for someplace to store the thing. And my boys don’t shave like that.

    • The Knotted box is such a good deal!

      • Agree! And the ties we’ve gotten/are getting are by far the nicest, classiest looking ties he owns.

  5. Nothing is catching our eye this month, I’m skipping this time.

  6. Debating Lather for a Father’s Day gift. No interest in Charred (have tools already, and rarely BBQ, plus have given BBQ tools as gifts before).

  7. I’m having similar neutral feelings. We already have grill tools and don’t need more. I’m not sure my husband would have any interest in Stow. I had ruled out the shaving kit because he has a beard but the thought of not having his can of shave cream on the counter does have its appeal…

  8. Charred all the way!!! I am going to save it for my dad’s birthday because he is notoriously hard to shop for and he just bought a new grill! What an amazing value!!

  9. Hmmm. LOVE BespokePost but not totally feeling any of these.

    I would JUMP on Charred… but we have tools already which leaves only wood chips and hot sauce…. If you don’t have tools already this is a nice box. I’m pondering Stow but not sure the value is there. No interest in Lather.

    Decisions, decisions…
