UrbaneBox December 2018 Review
UrbaneBox tends to vary a lot in the styles they send. Lately, I've noticed more and more of their in-house branded clothing is included. This month I received a sweater, a thin cardigan, and a belt. I'm thinking they are intended to wear together. Let’s check them out and see!
UrbaneBox Split Collar Sweater, Size M
This cream-colored, lightweight sweater is a simple basic that I could definitely use in my wardrobe. Unfortunately, the fit is just not that flattering and the quality feels a bit cheap. The split collar is cute but I don't like that I can see the bulky seams on the inside of the neckline. Although I won't wear this out and about, it is pretty soft and comfortable, so I'll just keep it with my comfy clothes.
UrbaneBox Leather Belt, 40in
Now, I'm liking this belt! It's a little less than an inch wide and long enough to be worn around my waist or hips. The gold buckle compliments the red-brown leather well and should wear nicely over time. I don't have many brown belts, so I'm glad to add this to my wardrobe.
UrbaneBox Blazer Cardigan, Size M
Hmm...this piece has a lot of style potential, but I can't help but notice it feels cheap like the sweater. The fabric, a cotton/poly mix, feels thin and stiff and the construction is pretty sloppy. I had to belt it because the inside of the lapels just flap around when I wear the cardigan open. Plus, the fit feels small overall. I do like some elements, like the print and the cut of the collar, but the construction issues make it hard to wear.
There is a flat rate envelope for any returns/exchanges you have. You simply log on to your account and request a return label if needed. Return shipping is free when exchanging sizes.
Verdict: This month, UrbaneBox sent me three items. I like the belt but am not impressed by the other items due to their lack of quality. There isn't any information online about UrbaneBox's in-house clothing line, but it seems that they are shifting toward including it over other brands. I haven't had issues with poor quality in the past, so I'm hopeful that this is just an off month.
