Distinct Style & Co. Review - Limited Launch Edition - Canadian Men's Subscription Box

This box was provided complimentary for review.

** August 2016 - This company is no longer in business ** 
  
What is it? Distinct Style & Co 
How much? $39/month plus $5 shipping (US$) 
What's in it? 4 core items plus up to 2 accessories to complement your lifestyle and complete your look

Distinct Style & Co is a new subscription box for men that provides the essentials for a gentleman to look his best and "distinguish himself from the ordinary". Based in Vancouver, the team at Distinct Style & Co hand picks items with the current fashion trends and latest styles in mind. 
 
Despite being a Canadian company, Distinct Style & Co bills in US dollars. This is a bit of a bummer, with the current exchange rate.

This is the first box - called the Royals. It's a Limited Launch Edition. The September box was very similar in composition, but was called Shade of Blue and featured blue accessories.

Distinct Style & Co. Custom Socks 
These socks carry a house label. I love the polka dots!

Silk Royal Purple Paisley Tie & Matching Pocket Square
The tie is also labeled on the underside as "Distinct Style & Co". There are no labels on the pocket square. I'm not 100% convinced these are made with silk, but without labels it's difficult to confirm. The set is nice though, and I love how they styled these pieces on their website with a light grey suit.

Custom Handmade Gemstone Bracelet
This is a nice addition.

Royal Purple Paisley Cuff Links
These cuff links match the tie.  

Yellow Flower Lapel Pin
I like that this pin complements the colour in the tie. I also like that it has a stick pin attachment instead of a bar pin.

The Limited Launch Edition box from Distinct Style & Co included six items. This is the only men's style box that includes six items each month, so that's a great feature. I like that they included accessories and pieces that create a complete look, from top to toe. I can't do a proper valuation on this box because none of the items are branded or labeled, but Distinct Style and Co says "the value of the content in your box will always exceed your monthly cost for the subscription". If you don't mind non-branded items, this could be a great box to help you (or the man in your life) build a solid accessories collection. I just wished they billed in Canadian funds!
