Spree Style with Erin Habes: Junk in the trunk

Many men despise shopping, don’t have the time, or can never find the selection to suit their taste. To ease the frustration, some online retailers have created an elite “members only” attitude, paired with the willingness to shop for you.
Trunk Club, a Chicago-based menswear online retailer, is doing just that, going one-step further to enhance your click-n-shop experience. Shoppers log on, take a style survey, then Skype or email with a real-life stylist to discuss style and fit. Within a couple of days a “trunk-full” of surprises arrives on your doorstep, loaded with a selection of outfits personally customized for you by your stylist.
Whether you're headed to a summer wedding in Dublin, a picnic in the Hamptons, or a vacation in San Francisco, the question of wardrobe always arises. Having a free stylist customize your gear is worth its weight in gold.
Diving into this shopping revolution, Nick Primerano, an avid online shopper, recently became a member and allowed me to view this too-good-to-be-true box of goodies. Trunk Club gets my stamp of approval with a great selection of brands, wonderful presentation and, to top it off, a personalized thank you note from his stylist Molly!
