I have been meaning to write this review for a few months now. It seems like a hot topic comes up every time I sit down to write it.
I got my first Sprezzabox a while back. Before I talk about what was in the box let me tell you why I joined and became an ambassador.
They offer a monthly subscription for men’s accessories for $28 per month. ($25 if you pay for the full year). In the box, you will get 5-6 items (I got 6 in my first box) that can be used in various ways and scenarios.
As with almost everything I did some research. I saw some great reviews and saw some negative reviews. When I read reviews, I prefer a mix of positive and negative. This gives me a better idea of what to expect.
I read the history of how Sprezzabox came to be. I even looked for pictures of real box deliveries and other reviews like this one.
That’s my nature. Before I commit to a subscription, I do the research.
After all this research I signed up as a customer. After I got my first subscription I signed up to be an ambassador.
My First Sprezzabox
Like most people, I get excited about deliveries. Not over the top waiting at the door for the delivery guy excited but I might check the tracking number once or twice. (There’s no tracking for Sprezzabox).
I should also caution you I have a bit of a sock addiction. I do also like ties and tie clips but it’s the socks that get me. That might be a separate blog post in the future.
I finally got my first box and was not disappointed. In the box was:
- A Tie
- Pair of Socks
- Tie Clip (very interesting one)
- A calligraphy pen
- A notepad (my son stole it)
- A lapel pin
The tie was a classic style grey and white tie that could easily be matched with most shirts. I tend to gravitate towards brighter bolder ties but do have some ties that are a little less bold as well.
I have worn it a couple times since receiving it and have gotten compliments on it.
The socks, it’s like they get me. I love the socks and they’re very comfortable. Who doesn’t love penguins?
The tie clip..another win. This isn’t your average tie clip. It is shaped like a pair of glasses. I wore it to a wedding I went to recently and got several compliments on it.
Now, the calligraphy pen. It might seem like a waste these days but let me tell you about my grandfather.
My grandfather was an artist, a cartoonist, and a calligraphy artist long before computers were in everyone’s home. He taught me to write in calligraphy.
I have not practiced calligraphy for many years and probably couldn’t do it anymore, but the pen brought back some memories. It also gave me an opportunity to talk about my grandfather with my son.
The notepad was cool. Nothing special but if you have kids in the house then you know you can never have enough paper. I’m the guy who stocks up on composition notebooks during back to school sales because they’re only $.50.
Isaiah appreciates the notepad more than I do.
I have not really found a use for the lapel pin yet. It’s still sitting on my nightstand.
All in all, I think it was a good haul. The tie and the socks would easily cost more than $28 at a retail outlet. I lose tie clips all the time, so another tie clip is great, especially one that no one else I know has.
The Sprezzabox Store
They also have an online store. You don’t have to wait for your monthly subscription. You can order some great men’s accessories from their store. I have not placed a separate order yet but they have some great looking items on the site.
The prices are very reasonable for what they offer. It’s your standard men’s accessories, the same that you would receive in your monthly box. It’s a great way to go shopping without going shopping.
Since I felt that the first arrival was well worth the $28 and after reading other reviews it seemed logical that I sign up as an ambassador.
Ambassador is a fancy word for an affiliate in this case. Essentially all it means is that I get paid a few dollars if you use my referral link to sign up.
I wrote in a previous blog post that I would not become an affiliate for anything that I don’t personally recommend. That is the case here. I personally recommend and have recommended Sprezzabox to others.
Let’s be clear here. I am by no means a fashionista. My wife has to “assist” with most of my clothing choices for events that require some level of dressing up.
What you get easily justifies the cost. I am normally a casual guy but do have occasions to wear a tie and jacket. The socks are a different story. I have tons of socks and wear them no matter what the OOTD is. My wife sometimes questions my sock selection when I am wearing shorts. I just respond with I am a dad.
I have also had very public sock wars on Instagram and Facebook. I once dragged my son into one. You win some, you lose some. I play to win!
I would recommend Sprezzabox to anyone who has a need for cool dress socks, ties and tie clips. I cannot wait to see what future boxes hold.
This also makes a great gift for that special guy in your life!
