"My past five years in grad school, I carried a nylon messenger bag that I bought at an outdoors store. It did the job, but it took a lot of wear and didn’t look very sharp. I promised myself that once I finished my PhD and became a professor, I would reward myself with a quality leather bag that I’d be proud to set down in front of my class. I intended to order one from a major retailer that sources bags from England. But, I heard about GentlemenCare from a friend and decided to check them out. I’m very glad I did.
All three owners of the company sat down with me over coffee and helped me design my dream bag. Their selection of leathers was amazing. I chose a tone that matched one of my prize possessions – a vintage aviation briefcase that belonged to my grandfather.
The men kept me up to date on the build process, and then met with me again to deliver the finished product. The quality of the materials and craftsmanship is outstanding. The leather gets more and more beautiful as it becomes broken in. And because I designed the bag, it has all the features I need – and no extraneous, weight-adding pieces that I don’t need. I use this bag every working day, and will do so until I retire. I get tons of compliments on it. And I am so glad to support an Iowa company, run by some of the nicest guys I know."

“I recently purchased a shaving kit from your company and wanted to share with you my review on the experience as a whole. Every holiday, I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out the perfect gift for my boyfriend. After discovering the Gentlemen Care Line, the answer was quite clear! The organization of the website and gorgeous pictures of your product was enough to have me hooked. The process was made simple and easy by Team Member Lee, who called me personally to obtain all of my preferences and wishes for what i wanted the product to be. I expressed to Lee my wish to have the kit here in time for Christmas. Despite the high volume of orders due to the holidays, I received my kit a week early. Just in time to give this wonderful gift to my sweetheart. I was too excited and decided to give it to him early. The look on his face when he saw the handcrafted wonder that is the Gentlemen Care Shaving Kit was priceless. Now he is requesting the Messenger Bag for the next holiday!! All in all, I'm thrilled with the product and looking foreword to purchasing some items for myself soon! "
"GentlemenCare greatly exceeded my expectations. The process of building my messenger bag was the best retail experience I have ever had. The hands on approach and attention to detail is unlike anything I had seen and the final product was phenomenal! I will definitely be buying another bag in the near future."
"Being in an industry where I use tools every day, I'm constantly switching from a professional role into more of a casual status. It's always been a challenge of mine to find a bag that equips for my everyday life, yet maintains my unique sense of style. The GentlemenCare team was amazing to work with. I visited them at their leather shop, showing me not only where they craft their products, but also educating me about premium leather and how to determine true quality. The GC team consulted my ideas and were able to create a durable unique bag that fits me as a barber, a father, and a man who values quality. I would highly recommend the GentlemenCare experience to anyone that appreciates "true" quality!"
