A few weeks ago, I signed up for Bombfell, a men’s clothing subscription service. I almost never buy clothes for myself. About 90% of my wardrobe consists of my old Army clothing and gifts from others. However, those gifts are few and far between. The result is a lot of clothes that are out of style and/or ill-fitting, so this Bombfell thing seems like just what I need. The idea is to input your measurements, identify your style, set your budget, and optionally provide a photo of yourself to give the stylists a better idea of your body type and skin tone. Then, they’ll send you awesome clothes at no risk or obligation—shipping is free both ways.
The Bombfell staff is eager to please, and your measurements, style, and preferences are thoroughly covered before you receive your clothes. As you can see, you can determine how often you receive certain types of items, and you can set a budget that they will not exceed. I chose an $89 budget every two months, which fits into my normal clothing budget. That doesn’t mean they’ll use the entire $89 for every shipment, they just won’t spend more than that unless you ask for an exception—they’re very flexible.
I added some photos of myself to increase their chances of picking clothes that looks good on me.
About a week after I enrolled online, I received this email. From here, you can view the details of your item or request a different item.
Here’s my first item. The stylist explains a bit about the designer and what to wear with it.
You can always choose to skip a month or request another item if you’re certain you will not like what the stylists have chosen. They give you about a day to mull it over before they ship it.
If they do not hear from you within a day or so, they’ll go ahead and ship the item.
After you’ve tried on your item, you can give extensive feedback and rate it from one to five bombs.
You may also upload a photo of yourself wearing the selection to get feedback from your stylist.
I'm pleased with this service, I like the shirt, and I'm going to stick with it.
