Gentleman’s Box August 2018 Review
The August Gentleman’s Box features a lot of neutral color tone items – including a tie, pocket square, and socks.
The booklet has a ton of information – including styling tips for your new goods.
Of course, you’ll also find more information on the items in your box.
Make sure to read the booklet – there’s an exclusive deal at the end, as well!
The Dark Knot Tie – Value $55
Every box starts with a tie, and this month’s tie is a 100% linen tie from The Dark Knot.
I have a lot of darker tone ties – so I was happy to get a lighter tone this month.
The tie has an almost burlap feel to it – it also has a bit of a rustic look, with little pops of brown color.
The White Sock Company Socks – Value $12
Pair the tie with some neutral tone, but fun, socks from The White Sock Company.
While these are valued at $12 in the booklet, all of their current sock selections retail for $15 – so it’s a little extra value.
The socks are a 80/15/3/2 cotton/polyester/spandex/nylon blend.
I pretty much never complain about socks in boxes, because I always use them. These are comfortable and cozy, too – ready for the fall!
Gentlemen Essentials Tie Clip – Value $15
To spice up that neutral tie, you’ll receive this simple silver tie bar.
This doesn’t have a clasp, so you’ll just need to cinch this on your tie.
It gives that classic tie a little bit of a modern look – I like this simple tie clip.
Allen Young Pocket Square – Value $19
This month’s pocket square almost perfectly echoes the tie in both color and material as it’s also 100% linen.
This was my least favorite of the items this month. Like the tie, it’s a bit burlap-y and felt a bit rigid. But, after reading the information I did find it interest that the entire thing is hand cut and stitched – and no two are alike. That’s pretty interesting.
Linen Laundry Bag – Value $10
The final item in the box is a Gentleman’s Box original – a personal laundry bag. This is perfect to pack in your suitcase and separate your post-trip dirty clothing.
Verdict: I thought the August box was really good! Aside from not loving the pocket square, I really like the tie, tie clip, socks, and laundry bag – all of that definitely puts me over the top in terms of value, so no complaints here!
