Nowadays, you can automate just about anything. And that outsourcing gives you back the most precious resource of all: Time. Automating stuff gives you back your time. And what’s more valuable than that?
Subscription boxes feel less like a special event now and more for the stuff of every day. It’s just plain easier to have your most-used items show up to your door without having to remember that you’re about to run out. In the case of clothes, having a subscription handy saves you from feeling like you don’t have the right thing to wear or that you hate your wardrobe by giving you a little something to look forward to every month.
That’s also to say that these subscription services have started changing up how exactly you do that subscribing. Something like StitchFix, for example, is more of the traditional model, where a stylist picks out items they think would work for you and you pay for what you keep. Other services, like Prime Try What You Buy and Fabletics, have started incorporating more options for personalization. You have more control over the stuff you’re getting each month. Here, we’ve rounded up nine of the subscription boxes that do it best for nearly every part of your wardrobe.
Bespoke Post is known for its tight curation of clothes, home items, and just plain useful stuff. They carry things they know are good, rather than just a whole bunch of anything. Their subscription model means you can test out some of that curation for yourself without having to lift a finger. The boxes are personalized to you after taking a quiz, and they might include stuff from beyond just the clothes. Members pay less, but non-members can get boxes, too.
Stitch Fix is the classic clothing subscription box and it’s still doing it well. You answer some questions, get paired with a stylist, and get sent a box of stuff every month. Keep what you want, send back what you don’t. It’s especially great for having during transitional months when, say, you need a new sweater right now but can’t bring yourself to shop for one.
Fabletics makes soft, stretchy workout clothes that are as good for the gym as they are for leaning into a full athleisure lifestyle. The pricing depends on your commitment: You can purchase individual items as a non-member, but the prices are jacked up. As a member, you pay a $60 fee for the month, which gives you member pricing to the items. You get to choose those items yourself, if you prefer having that type of control.
The individual items are included in the subscription, but the member prices are significantly cheaper: $30 for a sweatshirt rather than a non-member $90, for example.
Try Before You Buy
Prime’s Try Before You Buy gives you more control over the clothes you’re getting but that also means more legwork on your end. You pick out a set of six items that are free for seven days. After that week is up, you pay for what you’re keeping. It’s like making your home a personal dressing room without actually having to go to a dressing room. Easy as could be.
Stance’s sock subscription is a game changer regardless of how much of a fashion person you are. We wear socks hard and it’s often much after their expiration date that we’re actually retiring said socks. Stance’s subscription means your socks are always clean and hole-less. Opt for as few or as many as you want from the options: two, three, or four pairs a month, two a quarter, or your own combination.
ThreadBeast markets itself as a clothing subscription services that gives you clothes you actually want to wear, rather than last season items or that thing you saw at a discount store. They carry your go-to brands like Nike, Levi’s, Rhone, and Herschel.
ThreadBeast also has a whole variety of plans to choose from, which is useful for personalizing the experience. Start at the Basic Plan, which comes with two or three items, then move into Essential, Premium, and Baller. (Baller Plans come with nine items a box.)
If you’re building out a watch collection—or, you know, trying to—there is really no easier way than actually just having someone do it for you. Get a new watch (for keeps) once a month. Opt for a monthly tiered pricing, which increase in price as they do in watch quality. Plus, WatchGang always has raffles for the really good stuff, like Rolexes, Tags, and Seikos.
Menlo House Club
Menlo House Club is a slimmed-down subscription service that is more about giving you good stuff than it is giving you a lot of stuff. The monthly box includes two or three items, including jackets, pants, and shoes. It’s enough to always keep your wardrobe feeling fresh but not messy. Plus, all the items go well with each other, so you’re also opting into outfits that make themselves.
If there’s a shopping type that is particularly controversial, it’s vintage clothing by a landslide. It takes a lot of work—physical, emotional, and otherwise—to leaf through racks and piles of clothes to find the good stuff. Comma does all that work for you.
They keep their own inventory of vintage goods that they curate, and in each box, you get one to three items from there. Stuff like vintage tees, sweatshirts, and denim. Opt for delivery quarterly or monthly.
