This is a review of the ‘Loot’ box.

The ‘Loot’ box seemed like a full-sized Black Box. Lots of little items that we’re giftable and no in one genre.

Each shipment includes an information card. On the front, you find information about the items in the box, along with information about the brands/companies.

The reverse side always has a tip to go along with the theme. This month tips on Thank You note writing.

United By Blue Bartrams Socks – Value $12

I’ve been in”very excited for subscription box socks” mode for months now – so I was excited to see a new pair in Bespoke Post.

It’s a simple navy blue striped sock. One disappointed I had were that they are a bit too loose. They’re easily falling down my ankles – so these weren’t my favorite new pair of socks.

Eva Arthur Cash Fold – Value $40

I wasn’t sure what this was at first glance – but if you’re in need of a new money clip, or want to move away from a metal money clip, this could be a great alternative.

This cash fold is made to hold up to 30 bills and still be nice and minimal in your pocket.

This is a one piece, 100% leather fold:

Made with Horween Leather; with 100 year old formulas and an old world style of craftsmanship, Horween has been making the finest leathers for over a century. Horween’s Chromexcel full grain leather is durable, yet smooth and supple, allowing a lifetime of use. Horween Chromexcel leather ages beautifully over time as a rich darkening patine will develop. This leather is enriched with waxes and oils providing scratch resistant properties. Should you scratch the leather, rub with your fingers and the scratch will blend away. Occasionally buff with a horsehair brush to polish residual wax and brush away dirt.

Frausto & Co Gentleman’s Deck – Value $15.95

The Gentlemen’s Deck is a deck of cards with some gentlemanly tips and tricks on each card:

Mastering the art of being a true gentleman takes time and practice. To help stay well-mannered and keep an ace up your sleeve. From chivalrous tips on how to tie a windsor knot, reminders of social etiquette like what to gift for anniversaries, to the tried and true method for proper whiskey tasting. The Gentleman’s Deck is all-in.

While I’m not going to put it into practice – I didn’t know that freezing denim jeans overnight was encouraged! Gentleman points revoked!

Line of Trade Rainier Morning Solid Cologne – Value $20

I’m absolutely loving the scent of this solid cologne! Line of Trade is Bespoke Post’s in-house brand and I find myself loving their items more than not. This scent is a subtle, outdoorsy scent.

Baron Fig Notebooks – Value $12

They’ve included a 3-pack of small, 48-page notebooks from Baron Fig.

bespoke-post-loot-december-2016-0013

They’re assorted colors with a textured, paper, cover.

These have dot-grid pages, as well.

Cocktail Crate Spiced Old Fashioned Mixer – Value $12

There are two food items in the Loot box also. First is this cocktail mix from Cocktail Crate.

bespoke-post-loot-december-2016-0007

I love the simple mix – 4 parts whiskey, 1 part mixer – it doesn’t get much easier than that. This is a spicy cinnamon flavor mixer – sure to be a nice and warm wintery cocktail.

bespoke-post-loot-december-2016-0008

Nando’s Hot Peri-Peri Sauce – Value $3-4

The final item in the box is a hot sauce said to go with any dish.

bespoke-post-loot-december-2016-0009

This stuff is absolutely delicious. I’d classify it as more flavorful than spicy – but definitely not without a kick!

Verdict: When I was unboxing all of these items, it didn’t feel like the normal “one major item” Bespoke Post box – it felt like what Bespoke Post might deliver if they did mystery boxes. I was a bit weary of all of the items at first glance, but going through each one individually, they’re all small, but quality, items. My values add up to $126 which is incredible for a $45 box – even if you don’t like everything, there’s a good chance you’ll still come out on top value-wise.

What did you think of the ‘Loot’ box from Bespoke Post?

  1. I can relate to your comment about being very excited about socks subscription boxes! Just curious but what is your opinion on the best socks subscription boxes with great quality and design for both men and women?

    • I haven’t received many sock subscriptions – but I’ve been getting a lot of socks in other boxes like geek boxes, Harrison Blake, and Bespoke Post. The one sock box I’ve had personal experience with was Say It With A Sock – here’s my review: http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2016/12/say-it-with-a-sock-mens-box-review-coupon-december-2016.html

      They have selections for men, women, and children – they also have a number of really good brands – but, again, I’ve tried only one of their boxes so far, but I liked it a lot!

      • Thanks! I’ll check it out.

    • If you like some fun socks, check out Woven Pear. Their box subscription is $24.99 a month and contains 3 pear. Their site lists everything as women’s, but I wear a size 10.5/11 shoe and consider a majority of them to be unisex.

  2. Great box! My hubby would love it. Except for loose socks. Those wouldn’t work out.
