Arcieri Tie – Listed Value $130

I’ve received many ties from the monthly Gentleman’s Box, but this tie is by far the nicest I’ve received.The green silk fabric is very high in quality and the pattern is timeless, and also gives off fun 70’s vibes which I really like. The color combo is also perfect for year round wear and will pair with many different colored button-ups and slacks. This tie is surely a winner in my book and I look forward to debuting it!

Bombata Passport Case – Listed Value $65

I was unable to find this on their site, so the link above is to Bombata’s accessories.

I have an international vacation coming up in 2018, so this passport case couldn’t have come at a better time! The quality is top notch and the leather has good construction, making me feel secure with keeping my passport and maybe some credit cards in it during travel. I’ve never heard of the brand, Bombata before, but after doing some research, it looks like they have lasting quality products, so I’m sure this will be around for quite some time over the years for me!

Milani Milano Scarf – Listed Value $90

This scarf is currently unavailable, so the link above is to their current selection.

I’m not the biggest fan of scarves, but I guess you can’t go wrong with a classic black one! The quality of the fabric is quite substantial and not overly bulky, which is nice for Fall and mild Winter days. I also really appreciate that even though the material is thin, it’s actually quite warm, so it will help pull my look together AND keep me warm!

Milani Milano Pocket Square – Listed Value $60.00

I was unable to find this pocket square on their site, so the link above is to their current accessories section.

Just like the tie I received in this shipment, I’m really loving the fun and ditzy floral print of this pocket square! The material, also like the tie, is very fine and of extremely nice material. I appreciate that Gentleman’s Box put two matching prints in this shipment, which will pull together a really nice look. I think I’ll save these two for a spring wedding I have coming up in 2018 and pair with a navy suit!

Luna Rossa Cologne by Prada – Listed Value $35.00

This cologne is made of up lavender, green citrus, patchouli, and amber – which are all scents I thought I enjoyed. Sadly, when put together, this just wasn’t for me; it’s a little too fruity and not what I look for in a cologne. In no way does it smell bad, it’s just not what I like. Good thing though, I know someone who does like colognes like this and they have a birthday coming up, so this will be the perfect gift for them!

Beni Lusso Sunglasses – Listed Value $150.00

These sunglasses are no longer available, so the link above is to their current Men’s selection.

I’ve never heard of this brand before, but the quality is top notch on this classic wayfarer style! I tend to stay towards more “basic” looking sunglasses, so these are a nice upgrade for me and will surely get put to plenty of use!

Gentlemans Box Premium December 2017

The sunglasses came in this quality leather case that fits just right and will protect them from scratches / help me keep track of them.

Gentlemans Box Premium December 2017

All in all – these glasses are timeless and are a big win for me and my accessory game!

Verdict: This is my first experience with Gentleman’s Box Premium and they’ve really stepped up their game with all of the products! All pieces in this quarters shipment are extremely unique, of high quality and will get put to plenty of use! The value received in this month’s box was $530, which far exceeds the $100 + free shipping box cost! I’d suggest this box for any gentleman who is looking to up their accessory game.

  1. Why would they waste money sending it in a big heavy wood box. Shipping alone have to be costing them too much and the price of the wood box is probably more than what is fiscally responsible for a subscription box should use for packing. If they keep using the wood box as their box it is only a matter of time their prices go up or they end up being another closed subscription box. I could understand why some boxes might feel the need to use a wood box but this sub box don’t need to use a wood box to keep items safe while traveling. It is plain fiscally irresponsible of them as a company to use a wood box to send out their sub box out in.

    • I actually really like the wooden box and it’s one of the reasons I’m maintaining my subscription to the box. Clearly they’re a fiscally conscious business and have already factored in the price of the wooden box with shipping into the overall price they charge customers.

    • The wood box is one of the best things about this sub. It’s well made and a nice touch considering this is, after all, a premium box. I think of it as an additional item which, unlike cardboard boxes, lasts a long time and it’s useful.

  2. Whoa, that tie is $130? 😮 My whole suit and dress shoes cost less than that.

  3. This is an awesome box–just ordered it. 🤩

    The company does has a silly ordering process. You have to “prove” yourself worthy of the sub by answering a silly questionaire. It’s an elaborate (and did I mention silly?) way to limit subs to 50 or less evey day. I guess they found an original (albeit entertaining) way of making you feel worthy of giving them your money. 🙂

    My hubby liked the tie, hanky and passport case. Even if the scarf has a tiny amount of cashmere, it looks soft and warm. Although he is very particular when it comes to fragrances (Creed Aventus is his fav), he likes to try new ones. The sunnys will probably go unused since he wears prescription glasses. Overall, very nice. I hope GB keeps this up.

    • Urgh, misspelled *questionnaire and *every

      Also, the cupon code didn’t work. Maybe it doesn’t apply to their premium box, even for new customers.

  4. Rob, thanks for linking to the brand pages. I work in Italian fashion and have never heard of these brands, so it makes me think they must be whole sale. How are these glasses $150 when everything else on the site is $50-60. And the passport holder is $60 but an entire bag from this brand is $60? My new year’s goal is to stop buying from boxes that inflate RVs. It just does not seems very honest to the consumer.

    • I was thinking the same thing!!! The passport holder is just so much higher end than the ENTIRE bag you put it in apparently! Last year’s premium box they advertised a $154 weekend bag and then what arrived was the “collaboration” which looked like the canal street knockoff version but they still had it listed at the same price as the original even though the lining was now gone, no pockets, and no more leather bottom to keep away wear…. And then I was stupid enough to give them a second chance on the black Friday mystery box. I’m sure the quality isn’t bad but I hate when they treat customers like imbeciles that don’t do their homework!

  5. I got the 25 dollars box for my hubby like 2 months so he could try it out, specially with the BF deal. We were both very pleased with all the goodies and for the price. I think this box kicks Sprezza box.. I never knew that had a 100 box until this review which was amazing.My hubby is a very simple guy so this was be good as a birthday or Chrismas and he would be good for the whole year. Nice box though…They should do a ladies box. I think they would do amazing.
