Here's the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside The Menswear Club Parcel and we have to say, we are loving the shoebox style. Absolutely unique with the paisley pattern of the inner slide out box.

Top Notch Packaging!

Here is everything that we received in the October The Menswear Club Parcel

The Theme is "Setting Sail


So what is all this stuff?


Daneson Flavored Toothpicks
$5
I didn't realize high end toothpicks were a "thing". I actually really like toothpicks so this was a really unique and cool inclusion as far as I'm concerned.

This is the #9 Flavor. A blend of Peppermint, Wintergreen, and Sweet Fennel. It was quite refreshing

What is most striking is opening the little vial that they come in. The smell (almost like Listerine) immediately hits you. It's very distinct and different. I think these toothpicks are very refined!


Dr. Squatch Soap Company
$6
You could smell this Cedar Citrus scented soap as soon as you opened the box! I love the cheeky little character on the packaging as well

This is a 5 ounce bar and the woodsy scent of the Cedar and the Crisp Citrus scent serve to be very invigorating. The bar seems to be a very moisture rich one as well, so this is nourishing for your skin in the colder months.


Proof Block Wood Wallet
$20
If you watched the unboxing (and I hope you did) I thought this was a business card holder, WRONG! This is a WALLET! Wow, this is so unique. Love the little bird etched in the wood. The carved out half circle is for your thumb to easily get your cards or cash

The back of the wallet has the "Proof" company logo


Vitaman Face Scrub
$18
This is a totally new brand to me. It's a typical cleanser as far as formula - a clear, gel like consistency. It has, however no scent whatsoever. Typically with men's products there is a light scent (which drives my husband crazy) this has no scent which is awesome! This also conditions facial skin for an easier shave.


Skinny Tie Madness Dark Blue Plaid Skinny Tie
$29
Ahhh! Love this material and print. This is the softest tie I have ever felt! Even though you could get away with wearing this to business this tie definitely has an air of playing hooky about it.

I think they like skinny ties?

This tie has a two inch width. I used my fingers to kind of show that.

We went there, plaid on plaid guys. Lucky him gets to work from home and can wear pretty much whatever he wants! He did like this tie though, he was particularly fond of the flannel material.


HS Sweden Socks
$12
Love this very hip print on these ultra soft durable socks. These were my favorite item in The Menswear Club Parcel

 
Hailing from Sweden these socks are made from combed cotton (I had to look that up - Cotton is combed when it is to be used for quality fabric with high thread counts.) 
The more you know :rainbow:


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Menswear Club does an absolutely amazing job presenting it's monthly parcel. The packaging and presentation materials are just excellent. All of the products we received in the October parcel were great quality items as well. Curation is amazing! This is an extremely well rounded box, the items aren't just grooming - which can be a little daunting (in my opinion) for men. There are items that are useful and have a purpose as well which is really nice to see. We also get a healthy dose of brand awareness with a number of brands we had never heard of before. The theme is also very cool, we did get an assortment of items that were seemingly casual, as you would wear on a yacht. I think this is an awesome gift for any distinguished man in your life!  Great idea for the upcoming holiday season.

As far as box economy for the $34.95 The Menswear Club Parcel costs we receive $90 in products.
