August 2017 Gentleman’s Box review time!
If you haven’t heard, Gentleman’s Box is a men’s subscription box that delivers a monthly selection of essentials designed for the modern gentleman. Each box will consist of 4 to 6 hand-selected products for men, accompanied by a one-year subscription to GQ magazine (US and Canada only). To pay homage to the iconic men of the world, a new gentleman is selected as each month’s theme. The products inside each Gentleman’s Box are picked to reflect the class and style of that month’s featured individual. Items can include wardrobe accessories such as ties, cufflinks, pocket squares, & socks, as well as grooming supplies like lotions, cleansers, and fragrances.

Let’s see what’s in the August 2017 Gentleman’s Box!
As always, everything was shipped in a small box with a manly faux wood design.
A peek inside!
An info booklet let subscribers know which “iconic gentleman” was being honored in August’s box (spoiler: Leonard Nimoy!). The booklet was also loaded with plenty of information including product info, style inspiration, 5 great ways to end the summer, and more.
Gentleman Collective Tie ($29)
This green and navy argyle tie is a bit thicker/fuzzier than the majority of ties I’ve gotten from Gentleman’s Box. It almost feels like more of an autumn/winter accessory — which is totally fine since the summer is winding down anyway. (Yay!) It’s made with a blend of 50% cotton, 30% viscose, and 20% cotton/polyester. Not only will it help you look dapper, but with each tie purchased, Gentleman Collective donates 15% to the Children’s Aid Foundation. Nice!
Handcrafted in the USA, The Minimalist wallet is made with 100% genuine leather that’s both smooth and flexible, yet incredibly durable. It features 3 slots/pockets that can accommodate 2-3 credit cards each, as well as cash. It’s also waterproof!
These paisley patterned socks were designed in Vancouver and feature a green, pink, white, and dark blue (almost black) color scheme. They’re made with a blend of cotton (80%), polyester (17%), & spandex (3%) and are suitable for both work and play.
I really like this beaded bracelet and I kind of wish it was a little smaller so I could wear it without it being too dangly. It’s made with 8mm natural blue stones and can easily be dressed up or down.
Brickell Face Wash ($7)
I thought the listed $7 value was for the full size bottle, but the 8oz bottle actually sells for $25. Pricey! Anywhoooo… this facial cleanser is infused with natural ingredients including coconut, aloe, and geranium to help wash away dirt and other facial impurities. My husband already got some use out of this when he took it with him on a recent work trip. 🙂
Another month, another great collection of men’s accessories from Gentleman’s Box! The retail value this time was a crazy impressive $117. 😀 — Remember, for a limited time, you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code “GB5OFF”!
