Yo! It’s your boy Khoi, back at it again with a first look at the August 2017 Gentleman’s Box. This post will be a quick one, a simple unboxing. I will be giving my initial impressions on the products straight out of the box.
As you may know, every month’s box is centered around a specific theme. The August Gentleman’s Box honors our favorite space officer who is “well known for playing a half-human, half-alien on the most successful sci-fi series of all-time.” My guess is Leonard Nimoy, none other than StarTrek’s legendary Spock.

Before we start, if you already know Gentleman’s Box is for you, they were kind enough to provide Gentleman Within readers with a special discount.

GENTLEMAN’S BOX REVIEW—AUGUST 2017
GENTLEMAN COLLECTIVE NECKTIE
First up is a navy and green argyle patterned necktie. It seems argyle has fallen out of favor in the past decade. I remember rocking EXPRESS argyle sweaters when I started getting into style back in my senior year of high school.
It’s a simple, classic pattern in two shades of versatile colors, the navy more so, but the green lines make for a harmonious pairing.
The texture’s got a woolen feel, but consists of 50% cotton, 30% viscose and 20% poly-cotton blend.
RETAIL PRICE: $29
WOLF CLOTHING CO. HIGHBROW SOCKS
Every Gentleman’s Box comes with a fun pair of socks that often compliment the necktie. It’s no different this August.
The pattern is unique and for some reason made me think of King Koopa. It’s a bit out there for my tastes. I’d have been all over this a year ago, but these days I’m leaning more conservative, even with my socks. But of course there’s always a time and a place for fun socks and these will surely show off your fun and dapper side.
RETAIL PRICE: $14
MODERN MADE MAN WALLET
Perhaps my favorite item in this box is the minimalist leather wallet. It’s handcrafted in the US and made from 100% genuine leather. It’s saddle tan and is apparently waterproof.
I’m in support of brands that hand make their products through a careful attention to detail. The best part about leather like this is that overtime, the patina will make for a unique look that feels personal to you.
RETAIL PRICE: $48
GENTLEMEN ESSENTIALS BRACELET
Bracelets are a great way to add a dash of style to any look. This bracelet is simple enough, made of blue & white stone, a safe and stylish pairing. Only issue is that it’s much too big for my wrist. Looks like I’ll be gifting this one.
RETAIL PRICE: $19
BRICKELL FACE WASH
I’ve used the Brickell eye cream and gets nothing, but positive marks in my book, so I’d expect more of the same from their face wash.
It’s got aloe, geranium and coconut—all natural ingredients. It’s in a nice travel size bottle that I may have to take with me on my next trip.
RETAIL PRICE: $7
