Gentleman’s Box December 2018 “Prankster” Review
To my mind ‘prankster’ and ‘gentleman’ are antonyms, however, this month’s theme makes a convincing case for pluralism as it highlights the precocious work ethic and good deeds of its subject. With that in mind, most of this month’s items are from organizations that contribute to charity in some form.
The color scheme is navy blue and burgundy, not a look I associate with lovable scamps or charitable philanthropists, however, we’re breaking down all kinds of preconceived notions in this box!
The magazine quality booklet has all the details of the box’s contents as well as some general tips and a couple of special offers.
Oak and Stone Tie – Listed Value $29
A cut above a usual tie as it’s made from 100% cotton and feels fantastic because of it! Great colors for everyday use, not too showy and perfect for wearing to the office. The superior quality would also make it a great choice for attending an event at a country club or other fancy setting.
Society Socks – Listed Value $14
More burgundy and navy, this time with a single vibrant strip of blue on the toe presumably to signal that once your shoes come off you’re cutting loose and down to prank! The socks feel soft and very high quality and for every pair purchased another is donated to charity.
Tenfed Beanie – Listed Value $30
I love the look of a classic ribbed beanie, they always make me look like a proper sailor! It’s 100% acrylic so it might start to smell after a while but until then it’s soft and snug and warm. Slightly too snug for me actually, the label says ‘one size fits most’ but I must have a slightly larger head than most as it seems to slowly work its way up until it exposes my ears.
As their name implies, Tenfed works with Kids Against Hunger Canada to provide 10 meals to children around the world for every item they sell.
Oak and Stone Cufflinks – Listed Value $10
Simple and understated, ideal for adding a little contrast and texture to a dress shirt. Curiously they come in a plastic test tube that is about 10 times larger than it needs to be, I guess that means you could use it to hold nine other pairs of cufflinks.
Gentleman Collective Pocket Square – Listed Value $19
A nice rich burgundy with subtle navy blue spots. 100% cotton and very soft, makes a great handkerchief on top of completing the look of any blue or tan colored suit.
Gentleman’s Collective donates 15% of every purchase made to the Children’s Aid Foundation.
Verdict: A fantastic selection of high-quality pieces for the end of the year! Great value and philanthropic to boot! The total value of everything in the box is $102, but the cost is only $25 a month. That means on average each item is $5!
