Bespoke Post’s Box of Awesome

bespoke post

By now you’ve no doubt come across a few of the new subscription services aimed at men. You sign up and for a certain price you’ll receive a package every month. I’ve seen plans for all types of things from ties, underwear, socks, grooming samples, and curated boxes of clothing.

I’ve never been very impressed with the one’s I’ve tried until I checked out Bespoke Post’s "Box of Awesome". For $45 a month, Bespoke Post sends you a themed box, with past boxes including shoe care kits, coffee-making gadgets, and the one pictured here, a full set of bar tools required for every budding mixologist.

The boxes contain items worth over $70, and the ones in my bar set are high quality, restaurant-grade tools.

Bespoke Post knows guys so well, they incorporated our fear of commitment right into the service: skip a box any time if it doesn’t seem "awesome" to you.

    Have only had good experiences with Bespoke Post so far. Love it

    Sorry, is this a paid endorsement or a genuine product review? It would be good to differentiate.

      Hi Evan,

      Primer doesn’t do paid endorsements. When we do a sponsored article it will say so on the article itself as well as on the front page. I take that kind of thing very seriously. Thanks for reading!

      • Evan85

        That’s great, thanks for the clarification!

    • Jim Daneli

      Primer is actually one of the best at being transparent.

  • Chris Yandle

    $45 a month is steep and looking at some of the past boxes it doesn’t seem worth the price. I struggle to justify $45 on a box of salts, blanket and dominoes, or candles and aromatics. Do you only pay for the boxes that you receive?

    • Tanano

      You only pay for the boxes you want. You can “opt-out” at any time. There was a stint where I opted out of 3 in a row before there was one I liked. 

      Generally some really nice items and you really get a bang for your buck. I just happened to already just recently buy similar items when I opted out.

      Tanano is right, the neat thing is you can actually price it all out before you decide. For example the stuff shown above is about $75.

      • Chris Yandle

        Thanks! This definitely makes this much more tempting. My wife recently got me the birch box, which is $20 a month, and so far it has been great! 

  • Ryan Bo

    Can you purchase previous boxes? I would love the Agave box pictured above…

  • Adamb83

    Likewise on the great experience. I’ve gotten 3 boxes so far, and i’ve probably opted out of 3. Everything I received has been quality. Think of these boxes as a starter kit into various hobbies. For example, the coffee kit led me to explore the world of gourmet coffee brewing, and the shoe shine kit let me restore some old kicks. These are items you never thought you would “need”, but once discovered, you wonder how you lived without

    Andrew,

    Do we know if Bespoke Post ships to Australia? If not, are there any similar programs in Australia that anyone is aware of?

    I’d love to sign up to this, but being on the other side of the Pacific can sometimes be a roadblock…

  • John Markle

    Thanks for sharing Andrew. I signed up for this because of your article and I am looking forward to getting this months box! Keep up the great work. I love your site and my wife loves that I love your site!

      Wow, thanks so much, I really appreciate the kind words.

    I do generally enjoy Primer and took a chance on BP based on your reviews, however, I have to say that my experience is that the products they send are cheap-looking and not particularly exciting. It seems a lot to ask on their part for a 45$ commitment and a three-week wait. I returned my boxes and cancelled my account.

    • http://www.primermagazine.com/ Andrew

      So sorry to hear that. I can only speak to the quality of the one above, which was pretty solid. What was in the box you got?
