Gentleman’s Box December 2017 Review

Gentlemans Box December 2017

Each month, you’ll receive lifestyle, accessories, and fashionable pieces, all of which can be styled together or separately.

Each month also honors a famous gentleman. This month’s theme is Eccentric Inventor and I believe they are honoring Robert Downey Jr., who played Sherlock Holmes in the 2009 blockbuster.

This monthly booklet includes styling tips, editorials, stories, and information on every item in the box as well.

This month’s booklet includes some light reading material on holiday organizations, games and recipes! The Easy Peasy Cheesy Potato recipe is right up my alley and sounds delicious by the way!

Now let’s take a look at what’s in this month’s shipment!

Allen Young Tie – Listed Value $29

This tie was unavailable on the Allen Young site, so the link above is to their current selection of accessories.

I’ve received many ties from Gentleman’s Box and I think this is one of my favorites. The grey/brown color combo is perfect for the Fall/Winter months and is simple, yet eye-catching all at the same time. The material is on the thicker side and just by the touch, you can tell it’s of good quality. This one is a winner in my book and I can see myself wearing to both work and weddings!

Smoking Pipe Tie Bar – Listed Value $15

I was unable to find this exact tie clip on their site, so the link above is to their similar accessories.

This tie clip is so unique and is perfectly in-line with this month’s theme! While the clip isn’t just eye-catching, it’s also made of sturdy materials, making me feel like it won’t be breaking after all the times I put it to use. All in all, this one is a stunner and will pair perfectly with plenty different colors of ties, creating a nicely pulled together look.

Ozone Design Socks – Listed Value $18

This pair is currently sold out on their site, so the link above is to similar styles.

These socks are super soft and will pair quite nicely with the tie in this month’s shipment. I’m not sure what it is about them, but plain striped socks are my favorite, so these are a big win for me in this month’s box! The bottom of the socks are also a little padded, so if I’m in the office or out dancing at a wedding, these socks will surely be keeping my feet comfortable and warm.

Gentlemen Of The North Scarf – Listed Value $35

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

I’m not the biggest fan of scarves, but this one may be a winner for me and my wardrobe; it’s not too loud and is soft and cozy enough that it will actually keep me warm and on trend. The pamphlet shows it paired with a tan coat in one of the images, which I think looks like a nice pulled together look and not overly feminine. I look forward to pairing this with other colors, too, but I think I’ll start with tans and browns!

Ace Of Spades Earbuds – Listed Value $65

These earbuds are extremely nice and just by the touch of them, you can tell they are of really good quality. The pearl white and gold color combo is really eye-catching and the braided cord makes them pretty substantial. Not only are these nice looking, they sound great as well, which is the biggest win about them! 🙂

Verdict: This is one of my favorite Gentleman’s Box I’ve received thus far! All pieces in this month shipment are extremely unique, of high quality and will be used day in and day out. The value received in this month’s box was about $162, which far exceeds the $25 + free shipping box cost! I’d suggest this box for any gentleman who is looking to up their accessory game with a new look every month!

  1. The tie clip broke the 2nd time I wore it…

  2. I so wanted to like Gentleman Boxes so ordered the more expensive Mystery box. Very dissatisfied with the small number if items-4-in it-tie, socks, pocket square and luggage tag. When I complained what was sent I received what looked like a used beat up bag literally stuffed in a box. I had ordered a couple of the sale boxes that were cheaper and had more and better items in them. Burned on doing mystery boxes from any company. Was really planning on starting the sub for my high school grandson so this was a fail on their part. Ending up combining the mystery box with one of the other boxes to have a presentable gift for him. Not his only gift but was one I had thought would be a home run and ended up being a bunt!

  3. This box is really a great value. I need a boyfriend to gift this too!

  4. Thanks. I guess I will just order this box and not the mystery box.

  5. I also ordered the $25 mystery box. It was good but I guess I had higher expectations. Learned my lesson haha.

    • The $25 was half off for us it actually sells for $49 so either they sold it on sale and gave those of us that bought it a horrible box or that disappoint you feel for spending $25 should be doubled because that’s the true intended price for it. I wanted to sub my husband to this… after the mystery box I ended up subbing him to a year of GQ Box instead.

  6. This looks like a great box! I am a little bummed, I ordered the November and mystery box and was so disappointed by those I cancelled the subscription for my husband. This box looks much better than those two!

    • I had the same experience and reached out to their customer service. I was blown away by how quickly they responded and they even sent a follow-up email to see if I received missing items from the November box. I am definitely ordering again in the near future.

  7. Does anyone have any experience with the optional “add ons” for this box?
