GQ Quarterly Subscription Box Review #GQQ04
The GQ Quarterly subscription is a seasonal subscription box for men from the editors of GQ.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: GQ for Quarterly
The Cost: $100 a box + $8 shipping (ships 4 times a year)
The Products: Style, Lifestyle and grooming products selected by GQ Editors
Ships to: Free to the US. (Canada +$30; rest of world +$40)
Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items included and why they were selected. The theme of this box is all about shoes!
Free Pair of Wilson Shoes – Value $49
This coupon is for a free pair of Wilsons Greats, you do have to pay shipping though ($7). (The coupon also works on the Wilson Suede version, which is $59) We haven’t received our shoes yet, but looking at their website it seems that this company is all about craftsmanship/quality, so I have high expectations!
Jason Markk Premium Shoe Cleaner Essential Kit – Value $16
I originally thought this kit was just for dress shoes, but it works on most materials: leather, suede, nubuck, canvas, vinyl, nylon, cotton mesh. We’ll definitely use it!
Richer Poorer No Show Socks (2 Pair) – Value $15
Laced Up Laces – Value $10
We’ve received Richer Poorer socks in subscription boxes before, and they’re a great quality sock brand. (The sock pair you can’t see in the picture is solid blue). I don’t think we’ve ever run into a situation where extra laces are needed, but at least these are a basic black.
Baggu Large 3D Zip Bag – Value $12
I know I shouldn’t be so excited about a shoe bag, but this is the one travel item I always remember I need right when I’m packing, and then forget to order for my next trip! And I already have a few Baggu items in this stripe print, so that’s a bonus!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $102 (Or $112, if you use the coupon for the suede version of the Wilson shoe). Considering the cost of this box with shipping is $108, and you have to pay $7 shipping to get the shoes, I’m disappointed in the value. I like the curation and the theme this month, and the Greats brand is a new discovery to us, but I would have liked to see them add one more item to this box to get the value above the cost.
