      Singapur U. Briefcase – Retail Value $195.00

      FYI: this bag is 11 inches tall and 15.5 inches wide. 

      As many of you might be, I was kind of left scratching my head about a box with a “Sustainable Style” theme being filled with leather items, but upon further research, I discovered that all of these leather items are made from “recycled” leather. Basically, this company collects all the leftover scraps from the leather industry that would go to waste, compacts them together, and then bonds them with additional elements such as latex or natural fibers.

      You can tell this is a well-made bag. It feels really sturdy and the minimal design elements really work well together. It fits a 15-inch Macbook Pro easily with space to spare for a notebook or two as well as other important items while still maintaining a very slender profile. There is also a felt divider in the center to protect and cradle your laptop.

        Leather Headphone or Cord Holder

        This item is made of the same bonded leather as the bag. I actually like having things like this on hand since I always leave a tangle of cords in my wake, but I wish it wasn’t branded.

          Leather Keychain

          This keychain matches our set and is a nice minimal addition to your keys. Again, I wish this wasn’t branded. It makes it feel like a promotional freebie rather than the good quality and totally functional item it truly is.

            Leather A5 Notebook

            Finally, our last item is a bonded leather notebook. I tend to write everything down, so I am always in need of more portable-sized booklets. This one has an elastic closure to keep pages protected, and slips perfectly into my purse. Again, it is branded with the Robb Vices logo, but I care a little less since it is a notebook rather than a true accessory.

            Verdict: Robb Vices team, I really miss my monthly random liquor bottle. It was one of the most unique things about this subscription and you helped me stock my bar cart with such unique libations! Next month?

            Aside from the lack of booze, I did enjoy this month’s box. The bag was really well made, and I like that super durable bonded leather was used on the sort of item that I usually haul here and there on a daily basis. Full-grain leather will always have my heart, but for a bag that I know will be treated rather roughly, bonded is the way to go. I also appreciate the minimal sleekness, which would complement anyone’s personal style. While the 3 additional accessories were nice, I really dislike that they were branded.

            To Wrap Up:

            Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. Sign up by the 1st of the month to receive that month’s box.

            Value Breakdown: This box costs $144.90 ($129.95 + $14.95 shipping to PA) meaning each of the 4 items has an average cost of $36.23.

            I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

            1. I paused my subscription a month ago and now plan to cancel it. Even at the grandfathered rate of $75 I am not seeing the value particularly when I don’t drink much. It has gone downhill, but most boxes have. I used to subscribe to 12 boxes and I am now down to BREO, Margot Elena, FFF, oui please and Be Kind (which I am probably cancelling). The thrill is gone for me and as these boxes to out of business i probably won’t be subscribing to any new ones.

              • I agree that the sub market going down hill. It’s just too saturated and there’s not too ice that’s special anymore. I too am down to a few boxes after having around 15 at one point. I still get BREO, Oui please, Robb Vices, Sicily Paris, and I’m technically signed up for Fabletics, but I skip almost every month. I get a one-off now and again if something looks interesting, but I think I’ve finally come to a point where subscription boxes are no more longer all encompassing in my life.

                I wouldn’t have been happy paying full price this month. Even at the grandfathered pricing, I wouldn’t have gone out and bought it, but I actually like the bag they sent this month. Even though it’s bonded leather, I too am not usually a fan, the size is perfect, and it’s very sharp looking. I work from home and travel only a few times a year with a laptop. This will work well. The other items are fillers, and I couldn’t care less that they are stamped with a Robb Vices logo that’s not very noticeable. I wouldn’t use the key chain no matter what it looked like. They feel like sample promotional items, something nicer than a pen you could put your business logo on and hand out to special clients.

                I’ve picked. Few things up from their shop in the past. Has anyone ordered the glasses with the crystals on on them? I wondering how they look in person.

              • Horrible customer service. In ability to accept wrongdoing or mistakes, s they are only able to point fingers at their carriers or their customers. You MUST provide proof that they acted poorly, so keep PERFECT records. They will deny their mistakes until it is impossible. I have yet to hear of the wilily of a box, as the gift has yet to be received. I will more than happy correct my review, if the customer service changes and the gift i finally received.

            2. I used to sub to this box. What happened?? It used to full of unique items and fun to get alcohol. The items now look kinda cheap and useless.

            3. Leather is more sustainable than faux. Faux is greatly damaging to our environment. That being said, I agree bonded leather is just that…bonded leather. No matter how they try to twist it, it’s a cheap product.

            4. Not that anyone asked, but I am trying to delay starting my work for the morning, so here are my thoughts:

              While I like the aesthetics of the bag, I think the branding on the other items is unforgivable. They KNOW that no one wants a “Robb Vices” keychain or cord holder, but they branded them anyway.

              And bonded leather blows, yo. When I met my husband, he slept in a bed with a headboard made of bonded leather. As time passed, that bonded leather flaked off something fierce and after a while, the bed looked like complete garbage. PLUS, the leather flakes would stick to my legs and people would think I had psoriasis or something. Not a good look.

              Anyway, at $145, this box is far too expensive to take a gamble…and that’s what it is: a gamble.

            5. Wow, trying to pass bonded leather off as luxe… now I’ve seen everything! Bonded leather is definitely not as durable as full grain leather, and leather in general could be seen as sustainable in that it lasts much much longer than synthetic or even natural fiber materials.

              There are certainly more interesting things they could have sent, though! A bag made from cork, or banana fiber, or reclaimed billboard vinyl… all would have seemed more suited to a luxe box, and all are currently being offered at high end price points!

            6. Good lord! I have grandfathered pricing, so this box was totally worth it. I have mine listed, but the minimalist style may let me keep it. For what I pay, this was a total win.

            7. Why does anyone still subscribe to this box? Are people that desperate for alcohol and gadgets?

            8. This box was a little disappointing and I also did not like the branding. The quality was nice but this just did not feel like a box that I would expect from a Robb Vices. The last couple of boxes have been misses for me. Wish they would get back to the fun, unique boxes from when I first subscribed. I like the Vices Reserve shopping area for subscribers but the shipping costs have kept me from ordering.
