Guy Richie’s latest movie The Man from U.N.C.L.E., inspired by the 1960s television series, packs a punch — especially in the men’s style department. The retro spy film (in theaters Aug. 14) co-stars Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer as a CIA agent and KGB operative, respectively. The duo joins forces to take down an international crime organization while giving off major Sixties swagger. The film’s tagline: “Saving the world never goes out of style.” Other notable gents in the film include Hugh Grant and Mad Men’s Jared Harris and the beautiful Alicia Vikander).

Ridiculously good-looking guys? Enter Birchbox Man, a retailer that offers a monthly subscription of personalized grooming and lifestyle “try-before-you-buy” samples. The brand has teamed up with Warner Bros. studios and the film’s costume designer Joanna Johnston (Forrest Gump, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) to create a monthly box as inspired by the movie. They’re betting male filmgoers will want to get in on the action — hence, swag to get your swagger on. The Birchbox Man x The Man from U.N.C.L.E. boxes include products from CW Beggs, Das Boom, V76 Vaughn and an 11-function pocket multi-tool as a nod to the “spirit of secret agent preparedness.” The boxes ship out in September (new customers can sign up here by Sept. 10 to receive the partnership box as their first in their subscription — $20/month or $195/year), but until then, Oscar-nominated Johnston releases comments on working with Cavill and Hammer. Not a rough gig.

Quotes from Joanna Johnston: “For the international spy look: Always dress smart and be prepared for all eventualities. The key word is sharp. And elegance. Also — if you can — go to Italy and study Italian men. Italian men have their own way of assembling clothes; the way they put color combinations together … sublime!”
