There’s never enough hours in the day it seems anymore. With all that we have going on in our day to day lives sometimes we forget the important things, like sprucing up our closet. But when you’re days at the office turn into nights in front of your Macbook at home it can sometimes be hard to even find time for this style blogger to head to the stores and pick up new clothes. Granted, I love what I do, and love how busy it keeps me. Hitting up the stores after a long, hard day or scoring some major sales online are the best form of stress relief for me, until I get my credit card bill at least. For some guys, this is the furthest from the truth though. That’s why services like Trunk Club are a total god send.
Not sure what Trunk Club is? No worries, I wasn’t either until a few weeks ago. With the evolution of the menswear market companies are starting to capitalize on the online market from the menswear sector is vastly untapped. Companies like Steve Madden and Gilt are putting more emphasis on their male clients with social media accounts like Steve Madden Men’s and Gilt Man. Personal shopping services like Trunk Club and iPhone apps like Dapper. Trunk Club has one leg up on their competition though. They’re not a subscription service, meaning you only receive a new trunk from them when you want them. All merchandise from Trunk Club is chosen from over 50 designer clothing labels and hand selected for you by your personal stylist. Your stylist is available by whatever means are easiest for you, whether that be text, phone call, e-mail, or directly through the app on your phone. Once the trunk arrives at your house you’re able to try on the merchandise sent to you and have 10 days to send back the items you didn’t fall in love with before being charged. Then, whenever you’re ready for your next trunk, call up your favorite stylist, AKA your new best friend, and they’ll get your next trunk on the way to your front door.
What’s not to love? Don’t get me wrong, I love shopping, but I hate trying on clothes in the store. So that try on at home option makes this a win, win scenario for me. With that being said I think I’m signing up for my first trunk. What about you, what are you waiting for?
