It comes with a mini magazine each month.
Inside you’ll find styling tips, recipes, and drink mixes amongst the items in your box.
Salt + Dapper Tie – Retail $39 (There’s a $10 clearance sale right now!)
I always start with the tie – this is the item that you’ll always find in your box.
This maroon plaid tie is really just a classic look – one that I can see paired with a light or dark shirt.
I am loving these socks from Southern Scholar!
They pair nicely with the maroon tie, but more importantly, they fit really well with a bit more padding than the typical dress sock. Not to mention the nice ribbed cuff to stay up on your calf.
The Dark Knot Camden Lapel Pin – Value $29
You’ll also get a lapel pin to go along with that maroon look. This is a microfiber lapel flower to pin above your pocket square.
Jim Beam Black Ice Tray – Value $10-15?
There are two Jim Beam branded items in the box – the first is a nice whiskey cube tray.
If you drink your whiskey with ice – a large cube is best since it melts slower! This silicone tray will make 4 large cubes.
Woodchuck USE Jim Beam Wooden Coasters – Value $35
For these, I’m pulling the value directly from the booklet since they are a Gentleman’s Box exclusive.
While I’m not sure that I’d pay $35 for coasters – these are really nice wooden coasters featuring the Jim Beam Black logo.
AJ Murray’s Kentucky Bourbon Lotion – Value $4
OK – this stuff is awesome! The scent is hard to describe – when you think bourbon lotion, you might think the bourbon would be the overriding scent – but it actually plays second fiddle to a sweeter scent. It’s really nice.
While this isn’t the earthy scent that I usually go for – I do love this!
Verdict: I thought this month’s Gentleman’s Box was awesome – I like the mix of drink accessories with fashion accessories. I’m a fashionable gentleman by any means, but I like to have items ready for when the occasion creeps up on me – this box helps me with that, and this month includes some fun lifestyle items, too.
