This week the focus turns to monthly subscription boxes. There now seems to exist a scheme to deliver you a selections of monthly treats from just about ANYTHING that you can imagine. From beer, socks, coffee, grooming essentials to gym goodies you can have it boxed up and posted through your letterbox once a month. These monthly boxes come in 2 forms – essentials or treats – and can be set up a as gift or just as a monthly present to yourself.
We have sniffed out some of the best monthly subscription boxes for men and included them in our Friday Five round-up this week…
Mens Package brings you a selection of underwear and lifestyle products each month. A new pair of pants and premium socks are joined with grooming products for your face, beard and body. When you register simply complete your profile with your likes and dislikes and they take care of the rest. Of course you run the risk of receiving the odd thing that you may not actually like but on the other hand it is a great way to try new brands and products that you never would normally.

The Crate Co
A new kid on the subscription block, The Crate Co. create a monthly themed box that will introduce you to a new and different way of grooming and style. The ‘Crates’ are packed with a mix of lifestyle items (wallets, socks, belts, knives, tools, cocktail kits etc), and grooming products (pomades, razors, skincare etc).

The Charpar (pictured above) is a slightly more bespoke service then most and focuses solely on fashion. Aimed at style conscious men who maybe don’t have the time to browse the high street for themselves they take the hassle out of shopping. A Charpar stylist will give you a call to learn about your style and taste and use this information to pack a custom box of clothing and accessories for you. You simply keep what you like and return the rest.
There is no service charge but pricing for each box depends on the contents and your requirements.

Form & Thread socks offer simple designs in fine fabrics but at a fair price. They are built to last and like many of the designer alternatives appear to be high-end in look and feel but have comfort and longevity at the forefront. The popularity of their online store has prompted the creators Rich & Chris to launch a subscription service. You can never have enough socks right?
