How awesome are these! Love the red and blue color theme, great for Memorial Day weekend and for 4th of July as well!

Items in detail:

Salt + Dapper Bowtie

Salt + Dapper Bowtie, Value $45

This bowtie has a 2.5” width and is made of 100% cotton. The material feels quality and the pattern is perfect for summer events. Plus I think bowties are so fun, I try to get my husband to wear these type of ties more often so getting this will surely be a good reason to now!

Crosby & Co. Cufflinks

Crosby & Co. Cuff Links, Value $30

Cuff links are an understated accessory. I think it adds an extra touch of class to your whole outfit, something that says you’re of a certain class.

El Patron Hair Pomade, Bonus Item: Deluxe Sample Size, Value $4.20

This hair pomade has maximum hold with high shine, great for thick and unruly hair. Its “water-based formula rinses clean and offers ultimate control.” It’s also great to add texture to your hair as well as a strong styling hold. Plus this size is perfect for traveling.

My Thoughts: I’m always pleased with the curation of Gentleman’s Box, they continuously introduce cool brands and items that would keep any gentleman up to date in style. This month’s theme and style is perfect for summer, and those cufflinks are super cool. With a total value of $99, that’s pretty much quadruple the box cost! This is definitely a box to try out for all you dapper or soon to be dapper gentleman out there =)
