Disclaimer: I received a 3-month gift card in exchange for this post, as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
The Shirt Society, this isn’t something I had heard of before their email dropped into my inbox, however, I don’t purchase shirts so it wasn’t on my radar at all. That said, now they are I have to say it’s a brilliant idea and something I know Paul, and many men I know would love.
So, what is it all about?
It is a new clothing subscription service for men, on a plan which suits them. You can have shirts sent to your door as often as you’d like, choosing from every 30 days, 60 days or 90 days.
Women have had services like this for a while now, but there are limited options for men and I am not really sure why as all the men I know hate to go shopping (not that we can at the moment anyway, but once all shops are open again I’m not sure even lockdown can force the men I know to change their opinion on clothes shopping).
The Shirt Society takes the hassle out of shirt shopping – members log in to the site, choose their size and how frequently they want their new shirts to be sent – they aren’t sent random shirts though, you pick out the one you want so you know you will receive the items which will suit you and you will love.
New items are being added all the time so by the time of your next delivery there will be something new to choose from, and you will be prompted to log in to choose your item before your next delivery date arrives.
You can change the frequency of your subscription, pause it or cancel if you wish. So you do only get the clothes you need when you need them.
Recently, they launched a gift card which you are able to buy by for a loved one – let’s face it, buying for men can sometimes be rather hard at the best of times without the worry they that they may already have that shirt you’ve picked out, or it may not fit correctly. These cards are available for 3, 6 or 12 drops so are gifts which keep on giving every month.
There is no need to worry if you don’t have a shirt wearing in the house though – The Shirt Society also offer T-Shirts and Polo Shirts as well as Collared Shirts.
What’s in the box?
Every month, you select your favourite shirt, polo shirt, or two t-shirts and they will be sent them out to you. Sometimes you may even find the company have thrown in a little extra something, just because they are feeling nice.
New products are added all the time, so you’re sure to find something you like. Worried you’ll forget? Don’t sweat it. You’ll get a nudge a week before your billing date if you’ve not picked yet.
Down to the nitty-gritty of pricing. Your first box is half price at just £15 – for this, you choose a shirt, polo shirt or 2 T-shirts in your size. After choosing your size you choose the frequency, with the first order costing £15 and subsequent deliveries billed the at £30 (either each month, 60 days or 90 days depending on the frequency you choose).
Gift cards are available for 3 shirt drops – £65 (currently on offer for £58.50), 6 shirt drops – £125 (on offer for £112.50) and 12 shirt drops – £245 (on offer for £220.50). You can choose to receive an actual gift card through the post or you can opt for an e-code to be emailed to you (or the recipient) and save £4.50.
This is a lovely gift to give as a present, one that just keeps on giving and takes all the hassle out of shopping at the same time.
With a small but good selection of T-Shirts and Shirts to choose from you are likely to find something to suit – and with the classic shirts, they don’t require cufflinks and are easy iron too which is always an added bonus.
The gift card option is my personal favourite as it makes the individual price of the Shirts/T-Shirts the most affordable option, and given the current climate, who doesn’t want to save money?
