Gentleman’s Box Subscription Box Review – December 2015
Gentleman’s Box is a subscription service for men. Every month they honor a new gentleman by selecting products themed around them.
“Gentleman’s Box is a subscription box for men providing the essential elements suited for today’s gentlemen. Items within our monthly box subscription range from grooming supplies to wardrobe accessories – each selected to complement your lifestyle and align with our monthly theme.”
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Our post says the theme based around their favorite “Maverick” and pays homage to another famous actor, Tom Cruise. He battled with dyslexia for many years and is now one of the most well known faces in Hollywood.
It’s nice to see that they are still including an interview with featured members. I love it!
Knots Apparel – The Santa Rosa Tie – Value: $40.00
This was a bold choice of a tie. I can’t wait to see how John wears it. I’m a bit nervous that he may look like a lumberjack on an interview with his long beard. I like the thick material, it’s appropriate for the chilly mornings we’ve had all week.
Unsimply Stitched – Herringbone Socks – Value: $12.00
John always the new socks he receives in subscriptions. He loved the style and also said these were very comfortable!! Unsimply Stitched also has their own sock subscription for men.
Dr. Squatch Soap Bar in Pine Tar – 1.2oz – Value: $1.50
This soap has a very subtle woodsy cologne scent. Perfect for the fellows who love the great outdoors. Ingredients listed are oatmeal, pine tar and shea butter. Did you know Dr. Squatch Soap Co. also has their own soap subscription? Well, consider yourself officially informed. 🙂
Dead Soxy – Shoe Laces – Value: $6.00
John really didn’t say anything much about these laces. It’s not the most exciting product for a subscription service, but…wait for it…Dead Soxy makes His/ Her matching socks in an array of patterns!!! I want them so bad! Why isn’t there a box like this already? His/Her shirts and socks box delivered monthly! That would be so cool!
Taft The Tie Maker – Wing Tie Clip – Value: $25.00
This custom tie clip was made exclusively by Taft for this box, and it’s beautiful!! One of the best I’ve seen. We know a ton of retired military pilots, so I’m not sure if John is going to keep it or gift it.
Skinny Tie Madness – Pocket Square in Squished Like Grape – Value: $15.00
I love the pattern on this cloth. It looks and feels like it’s been washed a million times. So soft. This company’s pocket squares are sold within a set including a matching skinny tie and clip. I bet the tie is just as soft! I hope to see more from this brand in subscription boxes too!
Knots Standard – Coupon – Value: 20% off Everything
Knot Standard is a men’s clothing store with a wide array of custom suits, tuxedos and accessories. I love what I’m seeing online, but they are pretty pricey! Hopefully we’ll see a tie from them in a future box instead of a coupon.
Verdict: The estimated retail value this month is around $100! According to the website, subscribers should still receive a GQ mailed out separately. Normally, the GQ magazine is listed on the products page, but we haven’t seen a GQ magazine since the box downsided. I love the high value this month and I feel everything matched the Maverick theme. The only item that felt out of place was the shoe strings, but I’ve never seen Top Gun, so maybe I missed the reference. But, I’m glad it was there because I would have never known they had matching women and men socks! I also discovered a few more subscription boxes and John was very excited for new comfy socks!
