This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

There's a card inside the box that lists all the featured items and notes a few tips for how to make them work.

Floral Tie

This skinny tie is definitely for the bolder fashion-lovers out there. The floral print feels a little springtime to me, which isn't bad—if you're season-conscious, you might just need to wait 'til spring to wear it.

Flower Lapel Pin

This flower has a little shimmer to it. In contrast with the tie, this rich orange flower could work all year 'round. It's a simple and charming way to do something different with your outfit.

Multi-Pattern Socks

How fun are these socks? I love when guys show a little sock, especially when they're as dynamic as these are. You might not see more than the pink and blue polka dots when you're wearing shoes. But just knowing you're wearing these patterns is fun.

Tie Bar

Pretty sweet and simple. Just an orange tie bar. I bet it'd pop against a blue tie, or alongside a blue suit, though. It's all about the details, right?

Floral Pocket Square

I like the salmon-pink color of this pocket square. It's got a neat orange trim, too. The pattern is a similar floral as on the tie, but the warmth of the pink hue makes it a bit more appropriate for fall. The weave is pretty lightweight (it's a little see-through, like a light linen would be). It would make an eye-catching statement, especially to a wedding or a fancy occasion.

Verdict: JDM Accessory Vault included some neat items, though I wish the quality was a little higher. That said, the box is just $19.99, so each item must be around $3.99—I think that's fair given the value of the box. If you're interested in experimenting with your style, the finds in this box are a good motivation to do so!

What do you think of the items in JDM Accessory Vault?

This is a cute subscription for a man and alot cheaper of a price tag but hopefully they will do better next month. First it’s way to spring or summer looking. Second there are to many bold prints going on. It should sorta go together and alone… Trying to beat Spressabox is gonna be hard from my stand point.

Thank you for the comment, Bethie. This particular box was actually on hold for MySubscriptionAddiction for a couple months while they looked for a proper male reviewer, before we decided to just let them have at it. We’ve gotten quite a bit of business from them, and wanted their honest review up sooner rather than later, so Anna ended up looking things over and posting this. The last of these particular boxes that went out to customers were during summer months (though, as one person mentioned in another comment, they can go with some fall looks as well; but we also have quite a few customers in the southern hemisphere, where the seasons are opposite us in the USA right now too).

I didn’t wait and subbed now. With the coupon it worked out to $90 for 6 months so only $15 a month. Shipping was high at $7.50 a month. That’s 50% of the cost of the box. Didn’t notice that until after I hit the final button (it didn’t pop up until after I put in my credit card info).

My son would love this! Floral ties are really in right now as well as the flower lapel pin. I love the crochet flower pins I’ve seen some men wear this fall. I think each accessory by itself with a neutral suit or sport coat would look great. Right now we sub to gentleman’s box and I told my son after December I’m cancelling but I think I’ll sign up for this one starting in January. Everything in this box would be a win for him.

Glad to hear you love the look, Zo; and we are glad to have you onboard, especially with the 6 month subscription package. It sounds like you and your son are very fashion forward, and we look forward to helping you guys out. As far as shipping, we can only get it lower if we remove tracking and insurance. We’d love to hear your feedback about whether that is something that is important to you as a customer or not. You, or anyone else reading this, feel free to email me at alex.moen AT jdmAV.com (I don’t want my email picked up by spam bots, so switch the “AT” with the @ symbol).

I take back what I said about wearing it all separately. They have a picture on their facebook of all 3 together (with grey suit and white shirt as suggested on the card) and it looks amazing. I may not wait for Jan to sub.

I love a man who’s secure enough in himself to wear floral, & not afraid to break out of traditional, drab, “masculine” patterns/colors!

Please note, this is just my opinion. This is a men’s subscription box? I know menswear style is coming back for women this fall and winter but this looks like Laura Ashley thew up leftover fabric. What man wants to wear such feminine accessories? A flower sticknpin, no way. And the tie bar looks like an orange painted clothes pin. Put the man who wears this out of his misery and give it to a woman who might be able to make it work but not all together at one time. The only usable item i see for a man would be the socks because while fun and funky, his pants would hide the pattern until he sat down.

I absolutely agree with you LOLA! The patterns and colors a bit too girly!! I don’t like this recent fad of feminizing men!! LOL

It is bold, but we don’t consider it effeminate at all. What’s your take on this box with this suit: https://www.instagram.com/p/BLkL0plgv9x/?taken-by=jdmav

Because heaven forbid men show a little bit of a soft side. But menswear for women is ok?

It seams hypocritical to me as well. I think it’s wrong to stereotype and put people in a box. We are all free to express ourselves and dress our bodies as we see fit. There is nothing wrong with a man in a floral tie. And if he’s only comfortable with stripes or plaid, that’s fine too. Who are we to judge?

A soft side for men is fine but this is pretty girly. In fact I thought is was a woman’s box and did a double take when I saw it was a man’s box. Menswear clothes for women nowadays have a more feminine cut unlike back in the 80’s and 90’s dress for success look. I actually am very open minded and have very unique taste myself and appreciate it in others but I just can’t wrap my brain around this being a man’s box and that is saying a lot.
