As I mentioned in my post about JackThreads, the Chic Dad has a requirement to keep up with the owner of this fine blog, the one Chic Shopper Chick. Needless to say, it’s as exhausting as it sounds, which is why I’m super-excited about Gentlemen Square. Gentlemen Square is a monthly subscription service that sends you sharp-looking clothes chosen by a personal stylist. For people like me who are busy juggling a career and family, but still want to look great, Gentlemen’s Square can be a real time saver.
What? Gentlemen Square / Prices range from $45 – $99 per item
What’s Chic? A personal stylist sends you a case of fresh, sharp new gear every month. You pay for what you keep and return the items you don’t love.
What’s Weak? Invite only right now means you’ll have to wait before you get access. To keep your wallet looking as good as you will, you’ll have to be diligent about returning items you don’t love.
I wrote earlier about JackThreads as a secret to staying stylish. And while I love JackThreads for my casual wear, my job requires that I be in front of clients on a regular basis. I have to look professional, but I can’t look like a banker. My clients expect that I’m ahead of trend and looking forward. What I wear is a big part of that image.
This is where Gentlemen Square comes in. When you sign up, you take a quick style quiz that helps Gentlemen Square’s stylists to understand the types of clothes and style you like. They’ll also ask for your sizes. The best part? Once you complete your registration you’re connected directly to the stylist who will be curating your monthly cases of awesome. They’ll get to hear direct from you about your likes, dislikes and tastes, and all of this information will go into creating the custom style cases sent to you each month.
Once you receive your case, simply try the items on and keep what you want, return what you don’t. You’ll be billed only for what stays with you. So what comes in the case you ask? Great question. You’ll get a combination of dress shirts, polos and ties that are hand selected to match your style profile. Try them on, keep what you love and send back the rest. It’s that simple.
Does Chic Dad Recommend?
Does Chic Dad recommend a service that saves time, takes the guesswork out of style, and let’s me try on clothes hand-picked just for me in the comfort of my own home? Do our kids like candy? Gentlemen Square is a great way for the busy professional dad to stay looking sharp without eating up valuable time trying to find, try and buy the items that make up a polished wardrobe. If there’s a downside it’s that your wallet might take a beating, but with some self-control, and Gentlemen Squares’ reasonable price range you should be able to find some great pieces that fit your style and your budget, all while giving you your time back. Now that’s something the Chic Dad can recommend any time.
