August 2018 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 2018 Gentleman’s Box!
Everything was shipped in a small red box with an allover Gentleman’s Box logo design.
A peek inside!
An info booklet let subscribers know which “iconic gentleman” was being honored in August’s box (spoiler: Prince Harry!). The booklet was also loaded with plenty of information including product info, style inspiration, and more.
The Dark Knot Tie ($55)
An ideal summertime wardrobe staple, this 100% linen tie will get you through warm weather events in style. Plus, it’s neutral cream color can pair nicely with a wide range of ensembles.
I’m always happy to receive a new pair of socks, whether they go to my husband or I keep them for myself. Like the tie above, these socks feature a cream/oatmeal-colored background with light blue/gray polka dots and a brown colored toe & heel. They’re made with a cotton/polyester/spandex/nylon blend and are incredibly soft. With every sale, The White Sock Company donates 10% to help children fighting cancer.
Not only does this oatmeal-colored pocket square coordinate perfectly with the other items in the box, but it’s also a one-of-a-kind piece. Each one of these 100% linen pocket squares is cut and stitched by hand, so no two are the same.
A nice “basic”, no frills silver tie bar to pair with just about any tie in your collection. It’s simple, sleek, and easy to fit into pretty much anyone’s accessory game.
Linen Laundry Bag ($10)
Gentleman’s Box created their own linen laundry bag for subscribers this month. It’s printed with “Gentleman’s Tip No. 79”, which reads: Acting like a gentleman never goes out of fashion. The opposite side has a spot to personalize it with your name, if laundry theft is an issue in your home. 😉
August’s Gentleman’s Box! included a great collection of light-colored summertime staples. The total retail value for this month’s box was $111! Not too shabby. 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code “GB5OFF”!
