Menlo Club is a monthly men’s clothing subscription service. You take a brief survey when you sign up (style, fit, and size preferences) and they send a curated package of Five Four contemporary wear, Grand AC athletic wear, and New Republic accessories. On average, you receive two items per month and every month is different. Plus, receive easy size exchanges, free shipping, and pause or cancel anytime.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Menlo Club "Confidence is Key" Review
You can check out the package preview video for this collection on Menlo House's YouTube. This is a great way to get a peek at what each style profile (Classic, Casual, Forward, or Mix) will be receiving each month. Hint... you can update your profile if you want different items.
I've recruited John to help model and review this box. Menlo Club included an outfit from Grand AC this month for each style profile. John is set up to receive "Mix." Let's check it out!
Each month, John receives an invoice for his items.
A brand info card for New Republic is also included.
This month, Menlo Club included a promo booklet for Ladder, a supplement company originally formulated for LeBron James. There's a promo code for a free bottle with your first order.
New Republic Kurt Sneakers in Tan, Size 10 - Retail Value $89
The Kurt sneaker is the flagship style for New Republic, and this month Menlo Club subscribers received this leather sneaker in one of two different colorways – tan or gray. The style is simple, classic, and super versatile. Since they coordinate with any outfit, they're great for travel. The uppers are genuine leather and the lining is microsuede. John likes that the inside is padded for comfort but says that they are a bit tight for the first few wears. My recommendation for care is to spray them with some water repellant and have a Magic Eraser handy for scrubbing the white soles.
New Republic Holloway Socks in Dark Green, Size OS - Retail Value $8
The second item subscribers received this month is a pair of crew sock in various colors. John got a dark green pair that looks nice with the tan sneakers. The material is made up of 80% combed cotton, 17% polyester, and 3% elastane, which has a smooth feel and a medium thickness.
Verdict: I have to say, I'm impressed with the way Menlo Club puts together its subscription. Each month's selections build on previous boxes to help create a solid, versatile wardrobe. The monthly previews and videos give subscribers a chance to see what they'll be getting and to update their style profile if needed. The sneakers and socks included in this month's Menlo Club package are perfect for the time of year and John will get a lot of wear out of them.
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: This box costs $60 + free shipping. The retail value of the shoes and socks is $97. That's a good discount — a savings of about 38%!
