They say clothes make the man. If that is so, we are in the midst of a much welcomed return of the dapper gentleman. Men all around you are dressed to the nines and loving every minute of it - but in a much more relaxed manner than the suits their fathers wore. From athletic cut jackets to the unspoken "one button unbuttoned" rule, the menswear business is on fire and there are high quality goods rushing to meet the demand.
Sweetening the pot is the continuing rise of subscription services that quite literally deliver personalized style the style-seeking man's door. These services have become so prevalent that it's a good chance your husband, brother, boyfriend, boss or roommate might already be recieving monthly dispatches of hand-selected garments. It begins with a simple order for monthly refills of staples like high quality socks from the ever-popular Black Socks, top quality razors from Dollar Shave Club and perfect white tees from Rich in Clothing.
From there the man decides that a few moments to fill out an online form gives him freedom. It frees up previous time and valuable mental energy. No longer are weekends spent browsing the men's department at Saks or rushing to Nordstrom to stock up on basics. It's a slippery slope from then on. Now he's receiving personalized selections to add to his wardrobe from the Trunk Club for his perusal or even having personal fittings done at his home or office with services like Tom James. We are members and fans of all of these services and can vouch for all but Trunk Club. Trust us, it's next on our list of clubs to join. The socks are the best in the drawer, the tees offer impeccable fit and the razors benefit both he and she.
Life is simplified and now that men (and by extension, their women) can focus their attention on bigger things like building a legacy and a life.
The truth is, why wouldn't we seek ways simplify life in this way? Whether you're an executive or a student, tees and socks are essential in your wardrobe. Life is too short to spend countless hours browsing the men's department for the perfect flat front chinos. Visit these sites, sign up, improve your life. Two Venti thumbs up.
