December 2018 “The Herald” Sprezzabox Review

Sprezzabox-“The-Herald”-December-2018-Theme-Front

Sprezzabox-“The-Herald”-December-2018-Theme-Back

This is a very conservatively Christmas or just winter themed box. Really only the actual box and its name are of the theme, the contents are mostly black. 

Sprezzabox-“The-Herald”-December-2018-Basic-Outfitters-Front

Sprezzabox-“The-Herald”-December-2018-Basic-Outfitters-Back

Included is a $10 discount with free shipping from Basic Outfitters. An example of their socks is also one of this month’s items.

Sprezzabox-“The-Herald”-December-2018-Sprezza-Tie-3

Sprezza Tie – Listed Value $30

A nicely subtle black tie with a slight woven texture, 65% polyester and 35% viscose. This makes a nice change from ordinary slick and shiny silk ties and creates a quiet and understated look. Ideal for any event where you are not to be the center of attention, like a funeral or an FBI stakeout.

Basic Outfitters Socks – Listed Value $12

More black, this time with some grey. The interesting thing about these socks are the quoted features. They seem to stay up pretty well, so whatever they engineered to make that happen worked. I’m not so sure about the reinforced heel, it doesn’t seem to be any thicker or made of a different material and the feel-good toe seam doesn’t solve a problem that I’ve ever noticed in other socks. These are plenty soft and comfortable though and will go with any outfit.

Sprezzabox-“The-Herald”-December-2018-Four-Fifty-Five-Pocket-Square-2

Four Fifty Five Pocket Square – Listed Value $19

A pleasantly warm cream color with a classy black cross pattern. A little stiff but doubles as a hanky in a pinch. Would look great sticking out of the breast pocket of any blue or black suit.

Sprezzabox-“The-Herald”-December-2018-Executive-Society-Bracelet-4

Executive Society Bracelet – Listed Value $44.99

The most ominous seeming item I’ve ever gotten in a box, right down to the cult-like logo on its pouch and inner surface! It feels solid, is fairly heavy for its size and I imagine that if you were to wear it in public you’d start getting knowing nods from strangers. It’s incredibly shiny and while it is stainless steel, all the extra chromium and nickel that give it that sheen also makes it non-magnetic, meaning it won’t suddenly stick to things you didn’t realize had magnets in them.

Sprezzabox-“The-Herald”-December-2018-Frey-Dryer-Sheet-1

Sprezzabox-“The-Herald”-December-2018-Frey-Dryer-Sheet-2

FREY Dryer Sheet – Listed Value $9

These are apparently better for the environment than other dryer sheets, but they are also scented and opening them unleashed a smell so potent I’m surprised the fourth item on the list of scents after cedarwood, oakmoss and amber isn’t Agent Orange. This is to give your clothes the smell of cologne without you having to wear it, I didn’t test it to see if it works but I can not possibly see how it would fail to.

Verdict: As always this is a classy collection of everyday items, and this month there’s a couple of odd-ball niche things like the secret society bracelet and perfume infused dryer sheets. The full quoted retail price of everything included is $114.99, but for $28 a month plus free shipping, each of the 5 items averages out to $5.60.

To Wrap Up:

Can I still get this box if I sign up today? Yes, while supplies last.
