Gentleman’s Box Premium Summer 2018 Review

Gentlemans Box Premium

Each quarter, you’ll receive lifestyle, accessories, and fashionable pieces, all of which can be styled together or separately. This quarter showcases fashion and designs from a different region; this quarter’s theme is “The Coastal Addition.” 

 Now let’s take a look at what’s in the Summer shipment!

Gentlemans Box Premium

Brouk & Co Leather Dopp Kit – Retail Value $88

This Dopp Kit is SO NICE! The leather smells expensive and the overall construction is top notch; I can see myself using this one for years to come. I have quite a few trips planned for the Summer, so this couldn’t have come at a better time for me.

One of my favorite parts about this is the inner zipper pouch and hoops at the top; these will be great for phone cords and other electronics! I don’t think I would have ever paid $88 for this on my own, so it’s so great to have received it in this quarter’s shipment.

Original Grain Bracelet – Retail Value $49, Listed Value $39

I’m not the biggest wearer of jewelry but I absolutely love everything about this bracelet! The quality of the wooden balls are pretty high and each one looks different than the other, so it actually feels pretty special. I also really enjoy the color combo; black and brown is a classic for me, so I think I’ll be wearing this quite a bit actually! Original Grain Bracelet also offers a bracelet of the month club!

Gentlemans’ Box X Carved Bluetooth Speaker – Listed Value $60

I wasn’t able to find this speaker online as it’s a collaboration between Gentleman’s Box and the brand, Carved.

This speaker is tiny but has a mighty large sound! The quality is high; from the actual construction of the speaker itself to the material of the buttons. I have two speakers at home that I’ve paid over $100 each for and this one is very comparable for being listed at $60! I don’t think I’ll be replacing this one with what I currently use around the house, but I think it will be great for days that I travel to the park and other trips where I don’t want to lug around a large speaker.

WUDN Sunglasses – Retail Value $79.99

These sunglasses are so unique and nothing like I’ve seen before! The arms of the glasses are actually wooden, which is so cool to me. They’re lighter than I expected but seem to be overall very good quality, which I would expect being listed at $80. I also really appreciate the bright blue outer of the shades themselves; these are like nothing else I own, so I’m quite excited to be adding these to my collection of sunglasses!

DeadSoxy No-Show Socks – Retail Value $14

I own quite a few pairs of Dead Soxy socks, but I think these may be my favorite that I’ve ever received! The color combo and design are so unique and nothing else like I own, so these are a perfect addition to add to my sock drawer.

Besides just looking great, these are very soft and comfortable, I think I’ll be wearing them quite a bit! I also appreciate that these are no-show socks, as these will be great for the shorts season we are heading into.

Woodchuck USA Bottle Opener – Retail Value $20, Listed Value $40

This wooden bottle opener is SO thin and actually fits perfectly in my wallet. It’s quite heavy, which makes me believe that it’s of good quality and will be lasting for quite some time. The wooden outer is very smooth, so I won’t be getting a splinter anytime soon when I’m opening up any cans!

Verdict: This was my third experience with Gentleman’s Box Premium and they’ve really stepped up their game with all of the products! All pieces in this quarter’s shipment are extremely unique, of high quality and will get put to plenty of use! The value received in this box was about $311, 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 you say the Dopp kit leather smells so nice? It’s fake leather! It says so really get on the company website. Also you can find that exact tech Dopp kit at Walmart for half the claimed retail value. This premium box is so horribly put together that I would be embarrassed to have spent $100 on it. And yes gentleman’s box is not providing monthly ties lately — it’s clear they are not making money and thus omitting the ties to reduce their costs while still charging the same amount to the customer. Stop buying this box.

    It drives me crazy how easily pleased these “reviewers” are. Either they are paid to not give an honest opinion or they just don’t have an eye for true quality and value.

  2. Absolutely stunning box! This box was well curated around a very specific theme… quality items…. great value across the board on the items included… I understand that not all items will fit with everyone’s taste – but the value for $ spent, the thought that was put into the items – which almost all are from companies giving back to the environment… I can’t say enough! I subscribe to WAY more boxes than I should and I will say that this quarter’s premium selection was perhaps my favorite box of all time! All usable items, all wonderfully boxed if not to your or your significant others specific tastes… These guys truly know how to knock it out of the park with selections!

    • I agree!

  3. Are the sunglasses polarized?

  4. This box is substantially a let down. I subscribe to Gentleman’s box for menswear, not lifestyle items. It’s also quite disappointing that one of the big ticket items was a pair of sunglasses when sunglasses were JUST included in the Winter premium box. I cancelled my monthly gentleman’s box because of repeating products, but that took a year to occur. It looks like i’ll be cancelling the premium subscription too, as I can’t justify the price for redundant products.

    • The previous premium boxes have been a mixture of menswear and lifestyle products; which this one is also. I will agree a tie would have been nice, but there is still a pair of no-show socks and a nice bracelet.

      They’re completely different sunglasses. You might as well complain that the monthly boxes all have ties in them.

      • The monthly boxes have been providing a tie and socks in almost every box, with a few exceptions here and there. It’s the staple of the boxes and people paying for it are expecting it, so it’s not an apt comparison.

        I don’t think the premium box should be repeating products other than socks or ties so quickly. It would be no different if a watch was included in the next one, or if a different bluetooth speaker came in the one after. Sure, some people might be okay with 2 or 3 watches and others could use multiple speakers (I could, actually) – but I don’t think this box is being accurately advertised if that is what’s going to be happening. It seems to be leaning more towards lifestyle items lately, and should be advertised/described as such if it continues.

  5. I *hated* this box so much. The pamphlet it came with said that they decided to switch things up. It sure would have been nice to know before I bought it! I was expecting a really nice tie and some classic, professional items. None of this stuff would work at anything remotely formal (except maybe the bottle opener). I got it for my husband who would have loved the prior boxes and the only thing he likes is the glasses. Ugh.

    • I just about ordered this box for my husband but this is worse than some of the Sprezza boxes that we paid 1/4 of the price for. If they don’t intend to stick to professional menswear they should make it clear.

  6. Does it come in/with the first box pictured?

    • Yes, it all came in the big “leather-like” box with magnetic closure. It’s a really nice box. My son loves this box. He also gets the monthly one.

      • I ordered one for my hubby’s upcoming birthday, pretty sure the socks will be going to my son tho. Still a win-win. Thanks for the review and coupon code! :))

  7. A big meh on this box. The last premium box was amazing and so well curated. Sunglasses? Speaker? Socks? Super generic. Glad I put this one on pause. Outside of Bespoke Post, it is hard to find a men’s box that does it well.

  8. Great review! A bit pricey but the items looks like quality stuff! A bit early for Christmas shopping, but so many good gifts here, I’m thinking about ordering
