Most men are not great at shopping let’s be real. Brian Spaly, founder of Bonobos, started Trunk Club in 2008 as a way of helping men shop for things that they like without having to actually shop. Guys do like to look good without the fuss of having to shop unless you are like myself who actually enjoys shopping.
What Trunk Club Can Do:
- You receive a personal stylist who actually works directly with you to select clothing for you
- Try everything for free for 10 days. Keep what you want. Send the rest back. They will charge your card afterwards
- High quality selections based on your choices
- Free shipping both ways
What You Have To Do:
- Complete a profile and choose from the selections
- Click on the looks that you are most likely to wear
- Let them know where you’re now shopping
- Give them your measurements
- Fill out the account information
After that happens, you sit back and wait for your personal stylist to give you a call to discuss some last minute things.
There are many stores that offer similar services such as this one, I tried this one because I saw it on a Facebook ad and decided to check it out. I always check out those ads. I liked the clothing. However, I wish that I had a better personal stylist.
Erin(the stylist) called and it caught me off guard because I had signed up a few weeks earlier. We went over things and I didn’t get a real sense that she wanted to help me because of my honest answers. I told her my style and what I liked and what I was looking for. I felt a sense of “standoffish behavior” and that she just was kind of mean. We all have bad days, so I didn’t take it for too much but by the end of the day I felt that we hadn’t connected. I felt like I wasn’t going to even receive my trunk.
A few days went by and I hadn’t received a confirmation email to let me know my trunk was on the way. I actually called and spoke with another stylist who super friendly. I ended up asking her if I could be assigned to her but found out that was something that I needed to discuss with Erin.
I received my trunk and too my surprise. It was ok. Nothing special like I thought. I appreciated the hand-written note. Unfortunately, I cannot find the pictures(Samsung Note 2, I miss you). Overall, I like the concept, the clothes, however the customer service is lacking. I would try it again but I would want a different stylist since we just weren’t able to connect. Try it for yourself……
