Our first glimpse inside the January Culture Carton Box.

Here’s everything that we received in our January “Winter Style” themed Culture Carton Box. This box includes everything you need to create an elegant and cohesive look!


So what is all this stuff?

Our box insert

The reverse details each of the items that we received along with their retail prices.

There was also a little bowtie how-to included as well!


One Up! Game from Old Schools Cool
one up game


This fun tile game is an interesting play on traditional word games… while the point is still to create words, there are no rules against stealing the words of others!

Included in the game’s tin were all the tiles and a full sheet of instructions


Reign Bow Ties White Floral Lapel Pinreign bow ties lapel pin


This handsome lapel pin adds a stark contrast to the bowtie and pocket square that we also received from Reign Bow Ties. We love the fabric it’s made with (a light and feathery linen), it’s super dapper!


Reign Bow Ties Pocket Squarereign bow ties pocket square


This rich burgundy color is perfect for the cold winter months but still brings drama and flair. Made from cotton this is machine washable and feels good to the touch

Each pocket square as the Reign Logo on the reverse side


Reign Bow Ties Burgundy Bow TieReign Bow Ties Burgundy Bow tie


This gorgeous bow tie corresponds with the other pieces that we received from Reign. We received a self-tie bow tie but Reign Bow Ties offers both pretied bow ties as well as self tie bow ties.

On the inner liner you have measurements as well as an adjuster to make tieing a cinch (see what we did there?)


The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingwaythe sun also rises


The Sun Also Rises is a Hemingway classic and a great companion book to “A Farewell to Arms” which was included a few boxes ago. This book is about both American and British expats traveling from Paris to the running of the bulls. The characters in the book as well as events mirror Hemingway’s own life and give insight into the “Lost Generation”. Definitely a must read!


So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation and presentation. We can’t tell you how much we love the unique assortments that Culture Carton comes up with each month. It’s fresh and contemporary and quite frankly, there’s nothing else out there like it! The presentation is great, everything arrives perfectly. The quality is fantastic. We love that they include lesser known brands and the bowtie and accessories are wonderfully made! And curation is fun! Enjoy a night out and a night in with this fun box!
