Subscription Box Review

My first glimpse inside the box for this month. I always open this up, upside down…

men's subscription boxes

Everything that came in my “Schwebelin” themed package. This is a simple, understated selection meant to upgrade your wardrobe!


So what is all this stuff? 

My box inserts.

On the reverse of your insert you’ll find a synopsis of everything included in your box along with retail values for each item.


Fever Dream by Samanta Schweblin

The first item in the box is the book for the month and I’ll be honest, most of the books sent in boxes look interesting yet they may not be something I’d pick up on my own. This one I WOULD! It’s a modern day thriller that is part horror part nightmare (which I’m hugely into) and was shortlisted for a Man Booker Award.

I am not familiar with either the writer or the story so I ‘m excited to get into this one!


Barnaby Socks

Next in our box is the first of our lifestyle items for the month. These may look like a fun pair of striped socks but they’re so much more. Barnaby innovated socks with a BUTTON so that storing them away is that much easier! Finally the cuffs to your socks won’t be stretched out. And I have to say that I love that they come in a box.

These have the Barnaby logo printed on them.

And as you can see there’s a button as well as a button hole.


Ocean Boulevard Tie

Next up in our box is a formal tie from Ocean Boulevard. This black tie has refined white polka dots to give you a subtle dash of debonair flair! I do love the skinny-ish style of this tie as well.

Ocean Boulevard is a new to me brand and I can’t recall them being included in Culture Carton Boxes in the past. The tie is really nice though, and high quality.


Gentleman Collective Tie Clip

Then to really start putting this new look together there’s this simple, silver tie clip from The Gentleman Collective. This classy tie clip adds a bit of refinement without taking away from your tie.


The Little Link Cuff Links

My absolute favorite item that was included in this box are these fun cuff links from The Little Link.

These are made to look like space and I am so in love with these! Is there anyway a woman can wear cuff links? I also appreciate that they’re lined in silver to really compliment the other pieces included in this box.


So in summary

Presentation: Everything was packaged well and arrived to me perfectly in my box from Culture Carton

Quality: I feel like each box from Culture Carton is packed full of high quality items.

Curation: This assortment was well paired, both the colors as well as the items fit together perfectly!

Box Economy: For the price of this box ($45) I received $120 in items which is an awesome deal.
