This box was provided complimentary for review and this post contains affiliate  links.
What is it? Gentleman's Box
How Much? $33/month, including postage (US$)
What’s in it? 4-5 products for men and the latest issue of GQ Magazine

Gentleman’s Box is a subscription box for men providing essential items for today's gentleman. The monthly subscription box may contain a range of items from grooming supplies to wardrobe accessories – each selected to complement your or your man's lifestyle and align with our monthly theme.

Each box is themed around a noteworthy gentleman from past or present. The products inside each box are picked to reflect the class and style of that month's featured individual.

Over the years, many renowned individuals have defined what it means to be a modern gentleman. Through courage, charisma and admiration, these men have become icons to fellow gentlemen.

The August box honours "Our favorite Hollywood Wolf". At first I wasn't sure if they meant the true "Wolf of Wall Street", Jordan Belfort, or the actor that portrayed him, Leo Dicaprio. Belfort would be an odd choice. Esquire called him a horrible person and a "manipulative asshole" (source). Thankfully Gentleman's Box explained in their theme reveal video that they are honouring Leo, in particular, his role in the movie. The video makes clear they are not exemplifying the "ungentlemanly" actions he portrays, rather his style in the movie. That's a relief!

Product card, including a Gentleman's Tip: "Be honest; lying leads to shame".

August 2015 GQ Magazine ($6)
A monthly magazine inside a subscription box is such a great idea. I also want to note that I love that GQ put Amy Schumer on the cover.

Ties.com Elwood Sunglasses ($15)
The prodcut card describes these as "wafer" sunglasses, but I think they mean Wayfarer. Modeled after the classic Ray-Bans, wayfarer styles have quickly become my favourite, which means I am keeping these ones for myself. Leo's character sported Wayfarer's in the movie, so this is a great addition to the box.


The Tie Maker by Taft Midnight Paisley-Cranberry Tie ($30)
This is a lovely tie made from 100% silk. I like the contrasting checker print lining too! The Hollywood Wolf wore a paisley tie in the movie too!

TowelDRY Paste Styler (0.5oz sample, $3.60)
This is a wax-based hair paste that gives hair volume, texture, and separation. A full size is 2.5oz for $18. 

Ties.com Knot Cuff Links in Navy & Red ($5) 
These cuff links fit the theme well too. From my image browsing, it looks like Leo's character always sported cuff links with his dress shirts. The red and blue colours give a little nautical vibe as well. The product card says these are silk, but the website says polyester. 

Up Attire Jordan Belfort Socks ($11)
These are pretty funky socks and suit the theme well, especially since they are named after Jordan Belfort, the Wolf himself.

The August Gentleman's Box contained six items, with a retail value just under $71 US. This box costs $33 US, with shipping, for Canadians. The products fit the "Hollywood Wolf" theme pretty well and the items included are really good quality from known brands.

If you are interested in trying Gentleman's Box for yourself or as a gift for a loved one, you can save $5 off your first box using promo code 5OFF. This brings your first box down to $28 US (for Canadians), including shipping.
