Why More Men Are Getting A Stylist
When it comes to getting dressed, more men are getting help from someone other than their mom or girlfriend. Find out why the trend is picking up and why guys like it so much.Playlist
According to surveys, most men donít get dressed by themselves: two-thirds are helped by their wife or girlfriend. And the survey also found that it goes beyond wives and girlfriends helping: 3-in-10 guys get told what to wear or have clothes bought for them by their mother!
Guys, itís time to give your mom and girlfriend a rest. Thatís because a crop of new online subscription fashion companies are popping up thatíll pick out stylish outfits for you. You simply fill out a questionnaire describing your style, measurements, budget, and what type of clothes you usually wear Ė whether itís suits or casual. Then a stylist handpicks the hottest clothes that match your wish list, and mails them straight to your door.
Experts are predicting that services like these will be a huge hit, since a study by the Wharton School of Business found that most men hate shopping and arenít any good at it! Most guys will look for one item at a time, like socks, which means they have to make more trips to the mall to get everything they need. So, guys, here are some clothing subscription sites to try:
- If youíre into the fancy look, TrunkClub.com is for you. The site will send you your own personalized box containing anywhere from 10 to 20 items, from a $200 Calvin Klein sweater to a $1,000 designer suit. And youíre only charged for what you keep Ė the rest you send back!
