Gentleman’s Box February 2019 “Penguin” Review
As usual, this month’s box is dedicated to an unnamed honoree, this time it’s someone who has played notably ungentlemanly characters on screen but whom is presumably a delight in real life. Only one item appears to have any relation to him, the others are just similar in color.
Included is a coupon for Vincero Watches for $25, to be used when purchasing any of their watches, bracelets or sunglasses online.
BeSuited Tie – Listed Price $35
Gentleman’s Box is really good for items made with high-quality materials and this is no exception. This tie is 100% cotton, feels lovely to touch and I really like the squares and dots of the design. It’s a little conservative for a party, but would be ideal for any other formal occasion like a board meeting or an awards luncheon at an elks lodge.
Wolf Clothing Co. Socks – Listed price $14
These are awesome looking socks! They inhabit a place somewhere between jazzy and fancy and will look as great between a suit pant leg and a nice leather shoe as they would under jeans and sneakers. Also 100% cotton and a little thinner than winter socks, these are going to be perfect for the spring.
Gibson Apparel Pocket Square – Listed price $25
The sole penguin related item is a pure cotton pocket square. Soft enough to be used as a hanky and reversible, inverting the colors allowing it to be matched with any pocket.
Finickey Lapel Pin – Listed Value $19
This looks like something that would be worn in Greece 2000 years ago. I’ve no idea what it’s made of, but it feels solid and brittle. The greenish-brown cracks in the deep aqua blue appear random as mine did not match the one printed in the catalog, so I don’t think it’s just printed on plastic. Whatever it is, wearing it make you look like you belong to some ancient order.
Honorable Beast Bracelet – Listed Value $24
Another somewhat medieval looking piece of jewelry. This is made of a series of very slightly marbled but extremely rich blue beads that look kind of edible and a rectangular block of shiny metal that doesn’t. It wouldn’t look out of place during an evening stroll on the beach, but I think I would struggle to find a place for it in my usual get up.
Verdict: This is another good little selection of slightly fancier than usual items. I like the socks most of all and intend to use them as an example to inform my spring and summer wardrobe purchases this year.
The total combined value of all the items comes to $117, so considering that the box only costs $29 a month this is very good value. The tie alone is worth more than the whole box.
