I received my first Dapper Box in the mail today and I was rather impressed. If you are unfamiliar with Dapper Box they provide a monthly subscription box for men that contains items ranging from accessories to menswear.
Like some of the other subscription based services I reviewed the process is very simple. You sign up. The folks over a Dapper Box send you out a box of items that they compiled into a theme. You receive some goodness in your mailbox. Each box comes with 4 or 5 items. Simple. There are several membership options, your best option coming with the 12 month subscription that will run you $23 a month.
Let’s take a look at the items in my box.
The items that stood out most in the box were the socks. There was a time when I was a black socks for work, white socks for sports guy. But those days are behind me so I was excited to see some exciting new socks to add to the drawer! Each pair has a great pattern and colours.
I was impressed by the tie as well. A subtle green with a subtle pattern that will work great with the socks.
The Dapper Box also contained a set of interesting cuff links. I have to be honest, I don’t really use cuff links mainly due to the fact that I don’t really have any shirts that I can use them with. The cuff links are a cool addition, they don’t seem to be an item that people would purchase for themselves on a regular basis.
And finally a sample bottle of lotion from das boom industries. It smells great and makes for a nice finally addition to the box.
Overall I was impressed with the Dapper Box. It had a nice diverse selection of items, including some that I would never buy for myself normally. The subscription is probably not for everyone, but it will definitely be appealing for more than a few of you. You can take a look at some of their previous boxes, or find out more here.
