Gentleman’s Box February 2018 Review
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 Adored Activist, I wonder who it could be!
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 low-fat desserts (yum cheesecake!), along with some dating 101 tips.
Now let’s take a look at what’s in this month’s shipment!
Tie Doctors Tie – Listed Value $39
I was unable to find this exact tie on their site, so the link above is to their current assortment.
This classic print tie is really well made and definitely on the thicker side, so I feel it’s of pretty substantial quality. While the print is classic, the color scheme is not, which I really appreciate and something I don’t have in my current tie selection at home. The brand, Tie Doctors, is pretty cool, too – With every order received, they donate to Doctors Without Borders, which is a really great organization!
Mind Sock Socks – Listed Value $12
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 very nicely with the tie in this month’s shipment. I’m not sure what it is about them, but dotted and striped socks are my favorite, so these are a big win for me! The socks are usually one of my favorite parts of every Gentleman’s Box, they really won’t disappoint you with their quality and classic selection.
Traveling Gentleman’s Boutique Pocket Square – Listed Value $29
This pocket square was sold out, so the link above is to their current collection.
This pocket square is perfectly in-line with the color scheme of this month’s box and will pair nicely with the tie and socks! The material is 100% silk, so it’s pretty soft and is of very nice quality! Most pocket squares I own are polyester or cotton, so this is definitely on the nicer side of what I currently own in my wardrobe!
Percentage Sign Ballpoint Pen – Listed Value $10
The link is to their current writing assortment, as the pen in this box was out of stock.
I will always stand by these words – You can never have enough pens, especially when you lose them left and right like myself! This metal pen seems to be pretty good quality and writes quite nicely, too. The sleek matte black barrel is heavy, which makes me feel it’s substantial and the stylus (also of good quality) is a really nice bonus.
Percentage Sign Leather Journal – Listed Value $20
This current notebook is out of stock, so the link above is to their current assortment.
I’m not the biggest fan of tiny notepads but this one is of such good quality, I’ll surely be putting this to real leather notebook use. I think I’ll probably use this mostly for grocery shopping or quick work notes that aren’t too detailed, just because of the size. Either way, this is a win and something I think I’ll be using quite frequently.
Detroit Grooming Co. Lip Balm – Listed Value $2
I wouldn’t have chosen cherry lip balm in the store, but this was a nice switch from my everyday use of mint balm. This beeswax lip balm really did do a nice job of moisturizing my lips while not making them shiny, which is a huge plus and something I try to stay away from as much as possible.
Verdict: This wasn’t my favorite Gentleman’s Box but in no way was it a bad experience! All pieces in this month shipment are extremely unique, of high quality and will be used quite frequently. The value received in this month’s box was about $112, 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!
