I haven’t reviewed too many subscription boxes for guys, so when Men’s Accessories Box asked if I’d like to check out one of their boxes, I happily agreed. Dudes need subscription box love too!
Men’s Accessories Box is, well, pretty self-explanatory: A men’s subscription box that sends a new, unique accessory each month. Items can include cufflinks, tie bars, money clips, socks, ties, lapel pins, and more. When you sign up, you’ll be asked to fill out a style profile so you get the accessories that best fit your lifestyle.
Monthly subscriptions are $14.97, including shipping for one accessory. I was actually sent a few different items for review purposes (though I’m guessing the golf tees are a bonus promo item).
Here’s the info I provided in my style profile: “It would be for my husband, who is very “street casual” and rarely wears ties. He’s a t-shirt, slim jeans, and converse type of guy. I’m thinking something not too fancy would be best. Socks or something he could use on a daily basis would be awesome!”
Let’s see what’s in the box!
Everything was shipped in a small brown box with a Men’s Accessories Box leaflet taped on the side.
Argyle Socks ($2.00?) – I was happy to see that I did indeed receive a pair of socks, as hinted at in my style profile. However, these have no tags or other branding, so I have no idea what their value is. That said, they seem like decent quality socks and the colors are “normal” and a perfect fit for my husband.
Stylus ($1.00?) – This is probably the most basic of basic styluses. My husband probably won’t use this because he has a bunch of “fancy” ones that he uses to draw on his iPad. (Feel free to check out his work. He’s pretty dang good! 😉 )
Money Clip ($12?) – Again, there’s no branding on this, so I have no clue what it’s worth. Or if it’s stainless steel or not. (Some kind of info card would have been really helpful!) I found similar ones on Amazon and just guesstimated the price.
Golf Tees ($.25?) – I’m guessing these are just a little “bonus” item. My husband doesn’t play golf, but his dad does, so we’ll be passing these along to him.
I kinda have mixed feelings about this Men’s Accessories Box. While I like the concept, I’m not quite sure the value is there. If a regular subscriber got all of the items that were in my box, I think it would be fine. However, being that you only get one accessory per month, well, that just doesn’t seem like enough. Maybe if there were labels/tags on the items and the value could be justified, it would seem more worthwhile. Sadly, the lack of an info card and boring packaging just make it feel very… meh.
January 2015 Men's Accessories Box
This was just okay. The products were fine, but the lack of tags/labels/brands kinda just made it feel cheap. An info card and more professional overall look are both badly needed here. Also, more than one accessory per month would make it more worthwhile and justify the cost per month.
