Bespoke Post December Spoiler

Thursday, November 12, 2015


Cost: $45/month, shipping is included

What is it: monthly themed lifestyle box for men

Best for: gentleman who enjoys craft cocktails, wears polished shoes and likes to shop at Nordstrom.

In December 4 more new boxes will be out for subscriber's selection.  These boxes will include: 

Torch: This is to help make the perfect Manhattan.  The description from Bespoke states "We trust that you already know how to make a mean Manhattan.  But if you really want to kick your cocktail game up a notch, this is how you do it.  The flame chairs the white oak plank (that's the same stuff bourbon is aged in), which will give off a few wisps of aroma-filled smoke.  Capture that in the jar, pout in a cocktail, cap and shake, and let the smoke lend a unique woodsy note to the boozy flavors.  Then just pout, serve, and soak up the awestruck admiration of your drinking buddies. 

Churchill: "These aren't just any cigars - they're limited-edition blends from the godfather of top shelf smokes himself, Ernesto Perez-Carillo, Jr. He's a third-generation maker from Cuba with 40+ years of experience under his belt, and makes some of the best cigars around.  Complement them with the ashtray made from historic reclaimed wood from Europe, and an alluring candle to freshen up the air after a smoke."

Standard Issue:  The brother to the Weekender - "Haul a long weekend's worth of gear in a duffel with a hard-bitten history.  It's inspired by vintage military shoulder packs, with a heavy, densely woven canvas body and an even tougher Cordura nylon base.  Available in Olive and Navy."

Refresh: "Everything a guy needs to look his best, at home and on the road.  The dopp kit is a custom design, made in the US just for us by Blue Claw Co. out of heavy 15oz waxed canvas, full-grain leather, brass hardware, and a ballistic nylon lining.  And since an empty dopp kit is no fun, we packed it full of top-quality grooming goos that'll get you ready to face the day.

What do you think of these kits? I think I may get the Churchill for December.
