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).

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 September 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 September’s box (spoiler: Warren Buffet!). The booklet was also loaded with plenty of information including product info, style inspiration, fall wardrobe essentials, and more.
The Dirty Collar Tie ($25)
Now that it’s (finally!) almost autumn, it’s time to ditch the lighter summertime hues and bust out the darker, richer color schemes. This classic burgundy tie makes a great addition to any autumnal ensemble. It’s made of 100% cotton and pairs nicely with gray, black, and navy.
I love a good striped sock and will most definitely be keeping this pair for myself. 😉 It features a cream and burgundy color scheme that coordinates perfectly with the tie above and pocket square below.
B. Elegant Menswear Pocket Square ($15)
A simple, classic pocket square is a good pocket square to have. 🙂 This 100% cotton accessory is solid white with deep burgundy stitching along the edges.
J. Ciro Cufflinks ($75)
Paying homage to this month’s honoree, Gentleman’s Box included a pair of cufflinks that represent the industry he dominates. These silver “bear and bull” cufflinks are sure to make a statement — and perhaps spark a conversation or two.
As a longtime vegan, I was happy to see a faux leather accessory included in this month’s box. It’s solid black with a small Gentleman Collective logo embossed in the lower right-hand corner. Inside are slots for both cards and cold hard cash.
I loved seeing the rich burgundy color scheme of September’s Gentleman’s Box. — Autumn is on it’s way at last! I also love the socks and am looking forward to it being chilly enough to wear them. 😉 Oh, and the total retail value of everything this time was $149!! — Remember, for a limited time you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code “GB5OFF”!
