Trunk Club is a men’s clothing service where a personal stylist handpicks a trunk of high-end clothes and ships it to you for free. B has been wanting to try a men’s clothing subscription for a while now and we decided that we’d give Trunk Club a go first.
When you order Trunk Club you go through all the steps online to complete a profile (which includes measurements and sizes) and then you set up a call with your personal stylist (ours is Megan) to discuss what you are looking for in your trunk, how much you want to spend, etc. Since I am basically B’s personal assistant, I talked to Megan for B since I know it’s not something he’d want to do. Plus, I know what he likes anyway.
Trunk Club does send higher end (i.e. more expensive) pieces of clothing (and accessories), but I requested some pieces on the lower end of that scale. The size of the trunk and number of pieces included varies based on what you are looking for and how much you want to spend.
Trunk Club ships via FedEx (they are out of Chicago) and arrived here about two days after I talked to Megan. I should also mention that Trunk Club includes a return address label because you can ship back any pieces you are not interested in and you will not be charged for them. And there is no styling fee associated with Trunk Club. You pay for what you keep.
I was so excited to see what they picked out for B. I said that he was looking for some fun work stuff, as well as, some weekend stuff.
~Beren Navy Basic Pique Polo ($68): So B and I both decided as soon as we saw this that it was going back. He doesn’t wear polo shirts a ton and wasn’t excited by this. And then of course, he tried it on and it was a perfect fit and it looks great. And now I think he’s leaning towards keeping it. ETA: My brother ended up keeping this one.
~Life After Denim Tournament V-Neck Sweater ($98): We both totally loved this and it’s a total keeper. B just quick modeled it for a picture, but I think he’ll wear it both with collared shirts and non-collared shirts and can dress it up or down as needed.
~Bonobos Orange and Blue Plaid Slim Fit Shirt ($78): I totally love this. It’s my favorite piece in the trunk and it’s not something that either of us ever would have picked on our own. It’s a total keeper, it fits perfect and we both love it. I think he’s planning to wear it to work this week!
~Bonobos 9″ Washed Chino Shorts ($65): These are another love! B picked up a pair of Bonobos at the #nsale and loves them, so these shorts are another love and a perfect fit. Oh, I should also mention that when I talked to Megan she asked what kind of pants B normally wears and I mentioned he had recently bought a pair of Bonobos and loved them and it turns out that the CEO of Trunk Club also founded Bonobos!
~John Varvatos Garment Dyed Linen Pants ($148): B and I both like these – a lot, but I don’t know if he needs them right now. They aren’t too beachy and fit great – they are a nice go between for chinos and jeans. We are 50% / 50% on keeping these right now. ETA: He kept these.
B really enjoyed his first Trunk Club and we will for sure be getting another (we might do one every two months though instead of once a month). They picked some pieces that we never would have picked on our own and it was much easier than going to the store, trying stuff on, etc.
