A wardrobe packed full of classic, stylish pieces is what most gentleman need – but if you have neither the time nor the patience to trawl through thousands of options for a crisp shirt and perfect pair of jeans, now’s the time to get acquainted with Trunk Club. A Chicago-based one-stop shop for smart casual weekend wear, Trunk Club’s trump card is its network of savvy stylists who do all the work for you, ensuring you stay maximally sharp and polished with minimum effort.
Founded in 2009 but under a recent revamp with new CEO Brian Spaly (of Bonobos custom-trouser renown), Trunk Club has a simple model – you speak with an expert stylist about your expectations and requirements, and voila, a hand-curated trunk of clothing and accessories arrives at your door shortly thereafter. Brands range from Eton to Lacoste to Earnest Sewn, and after a 10-day try-on period you keep and pay for what you like, and send everything else back at no charge. It’s no-fuss shopping with ultimate convenience, but the stylists’ input is unparalleled – they know how to comfortably mix classic and contemporary, have invaluable advice on how each brand fits, and best of all, will help with arranging custom clothing orders in case you want to go bespoke. Pack your trunk!
