What is it? Bespoke Post Box of Awesome 
How Much? $45 per month + tax, plus $10-20 shipping to Canada (US dollars) 
What's in it? Fresh & interesting lifestyle brands for men built around a central, unique theme   

Bespoke Post is a lifestyle subscription box for men. Each month, Bespoke Post sends a new "Box of Awesome" - a box filled with a limited edition collection of products built around a specific theme. To complement the box, Bespoke posts how-to-videos, tips & tricks, and interviews with the makers. Their goal is to introduce men to something new. Many of the boxes could appeal to women as well, which is why I subscribe!

One of the box options for May was "Shine". I'm was in the market for a new pair of shades, so I scooped this one for myself. 
A good pair of shades should be in every guy's everyday carry once the weather breaks. Grab them before you head out the door and they'll help keep you cool and collected from ball games to barbecues to the beachfront. And in addition to the style boost, a quality pair of sunglasses are one of the best ways to protect your skin from wrinkle-inducing sun. The polarized lenses block UV rays from hitting your face, helping to keep under-eye aging at bay.  

 The Post pamphlet features fashion tips to keep you (or your guy) cool and collected in the warm weather.

First look.

There were three options for the Shine box. I'm a fan of Ray Ban Wayfarers and square framed glasses, so I opted for the Cash style.

Dharma Eyewear Co. ($99)
These options from quality-minded label Dharma Eyewear Co. are unbeatably priced, effortlessly sharp, and built like a damn tank. The lenses are shatterproof, anti-scratch, UV resistant, and like any pair worth its salt, polarized to keep glares and damaging rays at bay. The frames use high-grade acetate and ion-plated metal. Together, they’re extra tough and downright elegant. 
I LOVE these glasses. They are strudy and fit great. The tortoiseshell frame adds a bit of interest and the polarized lenses keep my eyes safe.

Line of Trade Leather Case ($40)
A rugged way to keep your new favorite shades in good shape. The top-of-the-line pull-up leather hails from the same old-school U.S. tannery that produces the leather for Red Wing boots — which is to say it's really, really good stuff. The full, natural grain is dyed and oiled for a durable color and texture, and the construction snugly holds your sunglasses or whatever else needs protecting.
This case is a bit too slim for my shades, but the quality and look is great. I'm going to save it for a gift for my Dad. It will be perfect for his eyeglasses.

Declan Microfiber Pocket Cloth ($12  sale $7)
Polish off your lenses while punching up your outfit thanks to this pocket-square-meets-cleaning-cloth cloth. The microfiber weave is engineered with enough microscopic surface area to trap dirt, oil, and water, so it actually cleans off your screen rather than just pushing the gunk around. 
This will be given to my Dad along with the leather case. It's a nice quality shammy to keep your glasses clean. I'm terrible at cleaning my lenses. Even my eyeglasses are covered in grease and fingerprints. I should really use my shammies more often!

The Shine box from Bespoke Post included three items with an estimated retail value of $146 US. This box cost me $65.40 US, including shipping to BC. The sunglasses are the best part of this box and totally worth the price paid. The other two items are just a bonus, and will be used as gifts. The Shine box is still available for $45 US plus shipping, so if you are in the need of high quality shades, check it out.

If you are interested in trying Bespoke Post, you can save 25% off your first box using promo code RESCUE at checkout. This code is valid for new subscribers only.
