Each month, you’ll get lifestyle, accessories, and fashionable pieces – all of which can be styled together. Each month also honors a famous Gentleman – this month’s box was a Jim Beam Black box honoring the ‘Southern Gentleman”.

Gentleman's Box - May 2017 - Maroon Tie

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.

Gentleman's Box - May 2017 - Maroon Tie Details

This maroon plaid tie is really just a classic look – one that I can see paired with a light or dark shirt.

Gentleman's Box - May 2017 - Maroon Polka-Dot Socks

Gentleman's Box - May 2017 - Maroon Polka-Dot Socks Side by Side

Southern Scholar Socks – Value $12 (They also have a subscription)

I am loving these socks from Southern Scholar!

Gentleman's Box - May 2017 - Maroon Polka-Dot Socks Details

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.

Gentleman's Box - May 2017 - Maroon Flower Lapel Pin

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.

Gentleman's Box - May 2017 - Jim Beam Black Ice Cube Tray

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.

Gentleman's Box - May 2017 - Jim Beam Black Wooden Coasters

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.

Gentleman's Box - May 2017 - Kentucky Bourbon Lotion

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.

Gentleman's Box - May 2017 - Kentucky Bourbon Lotion Back

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.

What do you think of the May 2017 Gentleman’s Box?

  1. I was super excited when I saw this box as I was hoping to find something cool for my father. I wish there was a box that didnt have the alcohol stuff. He is in recovery and just suffered a major stroke from it.

  2. Nice review, thanks, Eric. Do you know if I subscribe now will I get this box? I’d like to order one sub for father’s day so I’m more interested in a June.

    • Yes, you’d start with the May box – I pulled this from their FAQ:

      All orders placed on the last day of the month by 11:59 PM Pacific Time will start you with the current month’s box. Any orders placed 12:00 AM Pacific Time or later on the 1st of the month will start you with the new month’s box.

      Also, here’s a bit about shipping in case you’re gonna try for Father’s Day:

      Orders placed between the 10th and last day of each month will be shipped within five business days. Orders between the first and 10th, boxes start processing the 10th. For west coast subscribers, please allow up to ten business days for delivery. Boxes for recurring monthly subscribers will be shipped no later than the 15th of each month.

  3. Thanks for your review! This looks like something fun for my father-in-law! =)
