13109554, Help: What are the best men's clothing subscription sites?|
Posted by Soulroe, Tue Dec-27-16 05:26 PM
Is it Trunk Club, Five Four, or Bombfell?
Frank & Oak?
Which one(s) should I avoid completely?
Are any of these services worth it?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Wish I could help, but this is out of my league (although it sounds like something I'd probably love to do).

13109725, Or, you know your taste, but don't have the time to shop|

It's one step more "automation" than flash sites like Gilt.

13109899, subscription boxes are a big thing right now |

meals, snacks, clothes, fitness stuff, jewelry etc
one more reason to never have to leave your house and go to brick and mortar stores
I used a clothing subscription box (Trendy Butler) because I wanted to expand my wardrobe a little bit. I kept buying the same brands from the same favorite stores. It helped me expand my horizons a bit.
Cancelled it after 3 months because I just couldn't justify the price. But I'm happy I have some new brands I can look for now.
13109728, I've wanted to try Sprezzabox mostly for the ties|

with an issue of GQ
find some lookalikes at a decent price.
master the art of mimicry

some great forums and sites out there to help you master the art of mimicry as well
my favorite is the subreddit r/frugalmalefashion
You can find comparable GQ stuff for way less.
I also NEVER shop blindly. I always have a plan for what I need in my wardrobe, and how it will look with my staple pieces, when I shop for clothes.
13109897, I used Trendy Butler for the past 3 months|

tried it because they were offering $20 off their first month
Each month after that was like 65 bucks a month.
When you sign up you personalize it to your style (fit, color schemes etc). Make sure you know your measurements before ordering from any of these services.
Pros: The quality of the clothes was top notch. I never got any brands that I was familiar with but the materials were solid.
You can send them requests for specific pieces. I wanted more work shirts. So they sent me some dope button ups that fit really well
They let you return anything you don't like.
Cons: As with any of these kind of services, pants are a tricky thing. All of the pants I got from them were joggers that had drawstrings instead of belt loops. Which is fine I suppose for casual wear. But these days I'm looking more so for stuff I can wear at work.
The reason I canceled was that I couldn't justify the price for what I was getting. I have a decent eye for clothes so I can already choose stuff that looks good on me from H&M or Zara for a cheaper price.

I was on TB the other day, but wasn't too sure about them. Thanks for the info.
Plus, I think $65 a month, for the right kind of clothes, is pretty decent compared to some other sites.

Same (stuff for work/school).
