Bespoke Post – Each month, they release at least one new Box of Awesome. It’s a limited edition collection of products packaged together – in a box. Each box is built around a specific story or theme – the goal is to introduce men to something new.
I received the Weekender box. We would have loved it even more if we received a bag in any other color but this natural canvas color, this color just does not work. The bag itself is heavier than it looks. It features an inner pocket and heavy-duty reinforced frame, the handles and buckles are quality leather, and a rugged canvas shoulder strap clips onto reinforced D-rings. Also included were a pack of custom designed Miller Lite playing cards, and a sample of Brode, a water hydration vitamin and Goodwipes, a deodorizing wipe.
Available at BespokePost.com. For club members, each Box of Awesome is $45 – no matter the contents. For those who are not club members, each box is $55.
Carbon Fiber Sunglasses – DAD will be looking good in these shades made with real carbon fiber! These are a lightweight but strong carbon fiber that is combined with a custom polarized lens. Over 30 color combos to choose from.
My son, who is sixteen, discovered these carbon fiber glasses and just had to have them. He loves the way they both look and fit.

I received the ultimate filter, the frame was more sturdy than what we are currently using. The MERV rating on it is 13 which protects from pollen, dirt/dust, pet dander and virus carriers, smoke, and smog plus lead dust, oil smoke, and micro allergens. This is great since we have allergy sufferers.
