Here's the Box Breakdown
first look in the culture carton
Our first glimpse inside the May Culture Carton Box

what's in the culture carton subscription
Everything that we received in our Culture Carton for May. This is our favorite box yet - so full of awesome items!


So what is all this stuff?


Our box insert

Each item we received is listed along with retail values


lovely lapels pocket square
$12
This gorgeous mosaic print pocket square is interesting yet subdued. We love the intricate pattern and the fabric is soft and tactile. We honestly need to figure out a way to work this into a female wardrobe!


A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway
farewell to arms ernest hemingway
$17
A classic in stoicism Hemingway weaves this spectacular story during World War I through the eyes of Frederic Henry who is serving in the Italian Army. The story follows his affair with Catherine and was adapted for the stage.

We actually read this when we were in our early 20's but have no recollection of the story. Unfortunately, Mr. I'm Not a Tree grabbed this first to read and is currently plowing through.. we call next!


balitello socks
$15
We've actually been seeing Balitello all over instagram and it's sort of crazy having a pair of their super soft and comfy dress socks in our possession

Our pair is the "Tally" style. They encourage us to tally all the good things we are going to do and DO THEM! Also, all the unnecessary things in our life - cross them out! What a cool and motivating concept and the blue hues are very cool!


ollie & ross tie
$50
When a tie comes in a box like this you can kind of guess something magical is about to happen. Needless to say, Ollie & Ross makes luxury silk ties that are gorgeous!

Our tie is nothing short of beautiful. The pattern is bold but the colors are sensible and can be worn in a formal office environment. The tie is a stylish cut and made with 100% silk. Mr. I'm Not a Tree was excited to see this!

They have a huge collection on their site


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Culture Carton is our favorite men's subscription box because it sends items that are useful and that every guy can enjoy. We do feel that this month stepped up their game a bit and are so impressed with the items included in this box. The presentation is great, everything arrives perfectly. The quality is fabulous. The tie in particular is such a gorgeous piece but everything is truly wonderful! Curation is incredible. What a great assortment for today's modern man! Love it


As far as box economy the Culture Carton that we received costs $45 and for that we received $94 in items which is an amazing deal
