With today’s Gentleman’s Box review, I’m unboxing the May 2017 Gentleman’s Box.
The May 2017 Gentleman’s Box May edition is honoring our favorite Southern Gentleman in partnership with Jim Beam Black—the highest-rated bourbon in the world. Southern Gentlemen are known for their casual elegance, chivalry, hard work, holding the door open, style, and manners: Southern Hospitality. This month’s The Gentleman’s Post will be our guide through the box’s contents.
