Gentleman’s Box is a subscription box for men providing essential items for today's gentleman.

The products inside each box are picked to reflect the class and style of that month's featured individual.

This box honours "Our Favourite Nautical Navigator". Gentleman's Box never comes out and names the honouree. Instead the do a biographical write up full of hints. It's typically a celebrity or notable person. So far I think I'm batting 1000, but I'm a bit of a celebrity gossip and movie buff, so I find the clues pretty easy. Here are the clues this month... can you figure it out?
  • American actor and film maker
  • Known for comedic and dramatic roles
  • Started acting in 1974 with a theatre program in California
  • Had 2 huge hits in 1993; one a romantic comedy and one as a lawyer who contracts AIDS (I got it now!)
  • He's won an Oscar
  • He puts "more heart into his philanthropy than in his movie performances"
Put that together with the theme (Nautical Navigator) and who do you have? Leave your guess in the comments section.

First look!

Sunny Rebel Sunglasses ($35)
Sunny Rebel makes "cheap trendy sunglasses for men and women". These dark tortoise Wayfarer-like frames are perfect for the beach or on the way to the boardroom.

Detroit Grooming Peppermint Shampoo & Body Wash (2oz, $7)
This stuff smells great! Detroit Grooming  is made from ingredients carefully selected so they do not cause damage to the environment.

My Suited Life Fish Hook Tie Bar ($19)
This is a Gentleman's Box exclusive, not available on the My Suited Life website. It's bold and distinct, and fits the nautical theme perfectly.

WCR Co. Socks ($12)
These nautical-inspired striped socks pair well with almost any look. Gentleman's Box suggests trying them with brown, grey, navy, or tan.

Dazi USA Tie ($28)
This Collegiate tie is made from cotton and linen. The light colours and fabrics are perfect for spring styles. Gentleman's suggests pairing this tie with beige, white, grey, or navy suits.

Lawrence Hunt Gift Card ($50)
Lawrence Hunt makes tailored dress shirts for men and women. The gift card has no minimum purchase requirement, but shirts start at $75. And good news - they ship to Canada!

The April Gentleman's Box included six products, valued at $151 US. Even without the gift card value, this collection of items is still worth over $100! The products and colours are perfect for an early spring box. Now if only the weather would cooperate. Don't forget to let me know your guess for "Our Favourite Nautical Navigator" in the comments!
