I had planned to include this item as a part of my Father’s Day round up for 2017, but as many of you know, my father passed away two weeks before Father’s Day and I couldn’t bring myself to write up the post. As much as I wanted to push past my heartache, I struggled with putting it together so it didn’t make it on the blog this year as I had hoped it would. This would be the first Father’s Day in quite a while that I didn’t offer a Father’s Day Gift Guide. Because of this, I would like to apologize to my faithful readers and companies who had hoped I would feature their products. Because of this, you’ll be seeing me play catch up over the next few weeks and talking about products that I would have loved to include in that specific round up but didn’t get the opportunity to do so. Today, I would like to talk with all of you about the Wild & Wolf Wrench and Torch Multi-Tool which can be purchased at one of my favorite websites – The Grommet. Let’s get all the fun and exciting details, shall we?
The Wrench and Torch Multi-Tool is perfect for any man and offers a great gift idea for any time of year – birthday, Christmas, Holiday or just because. It retails for $35 at thegrommet.com and is rugged and built to last. This wrench multi-tool offers five other tools within the entire package, including: a knife, screwdriver set and even an LED light. It’s created and engineered to be tough while still looking elegant and encased in gorgeous packaging – sleek and hardcore. Honestly, I was an instant fan of this because it is something I could easily take with me and keep in my car to use “just in case” or gift to my husband or man in my life as a great gift.
The Wrench and Torch Multi-Tool is made of 420 stainless steel, plastic, rubber, lithium battery and an LED light element. It comes with an adjustable wrench, plain edge knife, LED light, bottle opener, saw, flat (standard) and Phillips head magnetized screwdriver set and 6-10 hex wrenches. It is built with durable steel construction and is made to last.
I have purchased and received many things from The Grommet and everything I’ve gotten off the site, I’ve enjoyed. This multi-tool from Wild & Wolf is no exception. With the months blazing by (we are already in August), I know this would make a great gift for anyone this upcoming Holiday season. I’m loving this tool and while I originally expected to give it to my husband (well, I promised him he could use it), I’m loving it so much that I’ve decided to keep it for myself. As many of you know, I’m a total car buff and I love to be independent, so this tool gives me the luxury of having the important tools I need, right at my fingertips.
Overall, I think that this multi-tool (and others from Wild & Wolf on The Grommet) would make a great solution as a gift for anyone, even yourself. It offers a variety of uses and the price point is great. I also want to touch on how sturdy this product is. I’ve hit it around several times over the last few months and I already made use of the bottle opener and LED light on more than one occasion. Tough and made to hold up to years of use makes this a definite winner in my book.

Shopping for men, for me… is well, easy. I’m the only woman or girl in our house, so it’s second nature to know the likes and dislikes of my men. But, shopping for any guy can be a challenge. I’ve been lucky over the years because I have a Daddy that is happy with anything you get him, so long as it isn’t underwear – that’s a long story… and a brother that is always happy with chocolate or any type of food. I think overall I don’t seem to have a difficult time shopping for these guys, but I know that shopping for anyone can be a challenge and sometimes men are so simplistic, it makes it easier for others to over think their gift. Today I’m going to be sharing with you a few gift items that I think would make any of the men in your life happy. Now, these are items that I have tried or have gifted to the men in my life and they’ve been a hit. Keep in mind that these items are just some ideas, be creative and have some fun with whatever you decide to choose.

Limelens Smartphone Lenses Kit retails for $49.99 – the Limelense set is the perfect gift for the tech lover in your life. My husband and I use our phones for EVERYTHING, including video and photograph options – so something like this is not only handy, but reasonably priced to give you quality images each time. Limelens lenses capture intricate detail that a smartphone camera could not achieve on its own and the lenses boast incredible framing capabilities, removing the limitations of the smart phone camera. The Limelens helps your smartphone camera product stunning photographs with a greater choice of photo angles, framing and composition.

Coffee or Tea? My husband and I are both Tea and Coffee Drinkers (well, the hubs drinks coffee now, I can’t any longer). Since we are always on the go, a good coffee mug that we can take with us is always a steal and for my husband – it’s an important feature. The Contigo AUTOSEAL Transit Stainless Steel Travel Mug (retail $24.99) is a great option for men on the go who love coffee or tea. (I wrote about this mug on the blog a few weeks ago which you can read about here.) The AUTOSEAL Transit Stainless Steel Travel Mug is literally a Holy Grail in our household. It’s leak-proof & Spill-Proof, easy to clean, stays hot for hours and thoughtfully engineered with a CleanGuard lid to keep out dirt and germs. It’s the perfect one-handed drinking companion that’s easy with a push of a button.
You can purchase the Contigo AUTOSEAL Transit Stainless Steel Travel Mug here.
The Presse by Bobble (retail $29.99) is another fun option. While it can be taken on the go because of the type of lid it has, my favorite thing about this mug is that it is a brew, press and go mug. While the Snow Man design may not be something your husband or man in your life would enjoy, I definitely suggest checking out the designs and features (available also in black, white, red, copper, gold, rose gold and stainless steel – the snowman is a limited edition design). The Press by Bobble is a high-grade, stainless steel drinking vessel that literally allows you to simple brew, press and take your drink with you. It’s a BPA-free, dishwasher-safe Presse that features a micro-filter for taste and 3-wall insulation to keep your coffee hot. This is the perfect option for men like my dad who love to drink coffee but are not interested in investing in brewing a whole pot because he is the only one in the house that drinks coffee. All he has to do is simply add his coffee grounds to the cup, add hot water, presse and fresh brewed coffee at your finger tips.
You can purchase the Presse by Bobble here.
myCharge RazorUltra Portable Charger retails for $59.99 and is a great investment for the man in your life that is always on the go. Like I mentioned previously, my husband and I use our phones for EVERYTHING. Many of the apps and things we do on our phone drain the battery quickly so having a Power Bank is important and definitely essential. My family and I are huge supporters of myCharge because we know that their products work and are made of quality. Let’s just say, we don’t leave the house without it.
The myCharge RazorUltra Portable Charger is crafted from anodized aluminum making it tough enough to stand up to the wear and tear that we dish out. It is a 12000 mAh which makes it one of the most powerful chargers in the myCharge lineup. The RazorUltra has a 3.4A shared output and can power two tablets/smartphones simultaneously and offers you 90 extra hours of power boots which is more than enough to keep your devices powered during a weekend road trip. The RazorUltra comes complete with a cable for convenient recharging and it’s sleek and enough to fit into any carry on or work bag. It’s a quick charger which is a plus to allow for fast charge while on the go so you do not miss any opportunities for camera use, etc. and it’s pre-charged and ready to go for you when you get it – so whom ever receives this as a gift can use it right out of the box. Recharges via a micro-USB cable.
You can purchase the myCharge RazorUltra here.

These bands conform to both your shoe and the motion of your feet making them so comfy to use. They are great for casual wear and perfect for kids. I use them to the gym or for running and make a great gift to anyone that has difficulty tying their shoes or taking them on and off. Each package contains 14 bands and you can use these to match your favorite outfit, support your favorite sports team or school or a seasonal event. I got mine in pink to match my Under Armour shoes.

Let’s face it – shopping for men can be a challenge for anyone and today I am hoping I make your shopping trip a little easier for you. I am the only girl (woman) in a house filled with men (my husband and 3 sons) so shopping for me is a breeze once I know their style. Knowing the style of your special gentlemen is key in finding a gift that will suit them. Most men are not very picky and if they are, you should know by now what they do and don’t like. Use those things as inspiration to do your shopping and hopefully the gifts I share with you will give you a little idea as to where to start. Here is my Gift Guide for the Man in your life – use this information wisely. lol
Unconventional Gift Idea: Let me start off by saying, if you are shopping for your husband, fiance or boyfriend and want something a little special and you’re comfortable doing so – boudoir shots or just a really pretty glam shot of you framed in a nice setting could be a great option as a gift. I didn’t list it above, but it has been a great choice for me a few times already. There is no need for any nudity and it can be tastefully done and look wonderful. That makes a great Valentine’s Day gift as well. One year I took head shots in a pretty top and had my hair styled and makeup done. My husband still carries it in his wallet.
1. Men’s Arm Candy – I’m a watch addict (most people know this), so each year I buy my husband a new watch either for Christmas or his birthday which is Dec. 1st. I have my favorite brands to buy him and because of his job G-Shock tends to be a really great brand for wear and can handle his daily use for his job. There are many other brands out there to select from. Some of my favorites include: G-Shock, Invicta, Fossil, ESQ, JORD and Martin & MacArthur.
2. Skin care – My husband has sensitive skin and is always looking for products that will not only work for him but that will be gentle on his skin. A favorite in our house is Menaji Skin Care for Men. This brand offers a variety of skin care products for the man in your life including Masques, Shave creams, eye gels and more. Menaji has an awesome set called: The David Skin Care Set that includes four travel sized goods in a very cool expandable travel case. Each product included in the set comes from their “Most Popular” and has a retail value of $135.95 but is currently on sale for $79.00. This is a great gift for the man who travels for work or who just loves to keep his skin great.
3. Scarf – If you live in a cold climate… it’s normal to see men walking around with scarves. It is not the norm here in Hawaii, but I figured I would include it. Scarves can range in cost from affordable to high end and luxury prices, but a great scarf that gives a man a little swagger is always a great find. If scarves are not your thing, a great necktie or beenie would be a great fit as well.
4. Fedora or a new Hat– Hats are a huge hit in our house and man we surely have a very large collection. One of my husband’s favorites (and mine since I tend to take them from him) are Fedoras. They are classic and make sure a great statement piece to any ensemble. Fedora’s are fun because they come in different fabric and style and have a variety of colors to choose from. They offer a swagger to them that most men will like and look really classy. My husband can wear his with anything but looks quite dapper in a full suit topped with a Fedora. I totally suggest one of these and they can be the perfect topper to a great outfit. If your man may not like a Fedora or it may not be his style – a regular hat or something he will enjoy will be an awesome gift too.
5. T-Shirts – We all love a great cozy and soft t-shirt. I will always pick up at least one t-shirt for my husband during the holiday as a gift. This year with Star Wars releasing just before Christmas, what better gift than a Star Wars shirt. A fun cool saying or a neat Star Wars graphic will be a great addition to any man’s wardrobe, especially one who is a Star Wars fan.
6. A New Belt – Ah, nothing says love like buying a new belt – right? Well, it may not be a traditional choice for a gift, but belts make great gifts for the Father or Father in Law figure in your life. It’s a professional yet stylish gift that can be purchased in a variety of colors, types like leather or fabric, choice of buckle and even price range. There are so many available. I am a huge fan of Coach so when I look at belts, Coach is my go-to for something like this. But, don’t be afraid – there are a ton of them available to choose from.
Of course, there are other items I like to pick up for my husband including some new tools or drill bits, electronic stuff he can use in his car or even some new knives for cooking but these are some items that will make for fun gifts. If you have that techie man that has his eye on a new phone case or someone who enjoys music, there are so many items out there to choose from.
- Music Lover – Amazon Prime Music or Spotify membership.
- Techie or Smart phone addict – E Gift Card to iTunes or Google Play for their favorite apps.
- Chef – a new set of Santoku knives or a new saute pan.
- Sports fanatic – something with their favorite sports team logo.
Remember, the key to shopping for the man in your life is to know their style and what they love. Once you have all that information set – the rest is easy peezy and shopping is a breeze. In fact, you can get most of everything you need from online shopping and you don’t even have to step foot outside your door or get out of your PJs. I hope the holiday shopping is going well for all of you. Do you have a man that is hard to shop for? If so – I hope you can find the perfect gift for him this year!

I’m a huge supporter of anything made in the USA and even more so when it is something that my husband likes to use and finds beneficial for his grooming. The Gentlemen’s Beard Oil and Conditioner is a new product to our household and something that my husband has been testing out over the last month. This product is easy to use and is formulated with key ingredients that helps to reduce beard itch that can come with a brand new beard or one that can be itchy because your skin is dry. It eliminates irritation and flakes.
After using this product, my husband stated that it was very easy to use. You can either dampen your beard, or apply dry but he prefers to apply the product right out of the shower (since he shaves and trims his beard in the shower). With just a few drops (dropper is included) you simply rub the oil into your beard and you’re done – simple! What my husband enjoys about this product is that it is unscented. I have had him include Argan Oil in his skin regimen and the scent can sometimes be overpowering for him so since this beard oil is scentless, it really is easy for him to use and enjoy.
The company states that you can use this to treat split ends on your beard – and they do happen for men. Split ends can come naturally or occur after a shave so using this oil will help mend and condition the beard to help with that problem. The bottle lasts a few months depending on how long your beard is and that is great since you will be saving some money easily with not only the cost but amount of product. Retailing for $39.99 (on sale right now for $19.97) you get a good amount of product for your money.
Organic Helianthus anuus (sunflower) seed oil, Organic Argania spinosa (Argan) seed oil, Organic Oenothera biennis (Evening primrose) seed oil, Organic Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, Tocopherols (vitamin E).
So – I told you what my husband thinks… how about my thoughts. I think this is a pretty nice product. I love that when my husband kisses or we rub faces that his beard doesn’t have that scruffy feeling any longer and it doesn’t feel rough on my sensitive skin. It’s nice, soft and feels smooth. I think overall this is a product worth trying for sure.
Have you heard of the Gentlemen’s Beard Oil? Is this something you would look into for yourself or your husband/boyfriend? Stop by their site to get more info: http://thegentlemensbeard.com

This year has absolutely flown by in a blink of an eye and in just a few short days, we are celebrating with our favorite Dads for Father’s Day. I am always on the hunt for special gifts for my dad and my husband and while I tend to select the same type of things each year – new watch, shirt, etc. I find that sometimes a change in gift is always fun and exciting. This year I want to share with you the Father’s Day Gift Set from Menaji SkinCare. Prior to trying these products, my husband and I have not heard of Menaji but my husband enjoys the little set and I’m pretty sure the favorite dad in your life, or dads will enjoy it too.
This Father’s Day Gift Set is priced at $40 and includes three great products for any dad or man in your life. These products are best sellers of Menaji and contain formulations specifically created for a man’s skin. My husband has very sensitive skin as I do and he has enjoyed the products included in this set so we thought it would be a great thing to share with all of you.
Included in the set:
- Menaji Clearshave 3-in-1: This cool product requires no water to use and you don’t need to wipe it off. It has a built in toner and comes in the perfect size for travel. This product is great in protecting against razor bumps and ingrown hairs which can make sensitive skin more sensitive if you don’t have the products to help with that.
- Menaji Power Hydrator Aftershave: This product moisturizes without oiliness. We especially think this is a great product because my husband can get dry skin easily and this helps to keep his skin moisturized all day. It is super light and includes hyaluronic acid which helps to increase the skin’s moisture level and minimizes wrinkles. It includes Chamomile, Vitamin E, Grapefruit Peel, Green Tea and Aloe Vera – all things I always suggest for soft, soothed skin after a shave and nutrients to to help brighten dulled skin.
- Menaji Lip Agent: This lip balm is non drying and doesn’t have a waxy texture like some lip balms can have. It has SPF 15 to help protect those lips. This lip balm has a peppermint flavor, smells like peppermint and applies smoothly to the lips.
These great products arrive in repurposed cigar box filled with the products and Menaji logo tissue paper. No two cigar boxes are the same, so the box that you see I have may not be what you get when you order yours. You still have till June 19, 2015 to place your order and get your goods for Father’s Day. If you are looking for a Father’s Day gift or just something for that special man in your life, this is such a great gift – my husband surely loved it.
Order your box today: 1-800-551-5067 or Menaji.com. Check out the site to see their full sized product line and other products that they offer as well.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there!

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a HUGE watch addiction… so much so that I have more watches than I could ever use in a lifetime and I can’t live without a watch on so I even sleep with my watch. I have my favorite brands, my favorite styles and since I’m someone who spends a lot of time in the ocean, I have my Diver’s watches – but I have absolutely fallen in love with a style that is not only timeless, it’s unique. JORD watches are gorgeous wood watches created in different finishes and designs for every lifestyle. Today I am sharing with you the JORD Sully in Black & Maple. This watch has been a favorite of mine for days I want to dress up or those that I chose to be chill and lax.
JORD was derived from the desire for a timepiece that modeled their modern lifestyle. Jord wanted to provide something that was sustainable, efficient, simple and also influenced by experiential living. They wanted their watches to be able to tell more than time by creating a style that was guided by a deep appreciation for natural elements and modern design. Wood is not just a component to each watch, but is the main feature. Each watch is created with an intricacy and multiplicity of woods in the design to insure that each one is as distinctive as the owner. Their methods were to ensure that each watch was not just worn, they were used.

Contrary to popular belief, Hawaii does get cold during the winter months, in fact – some of our islands even experience a little bit of snow fall. While you can find me bundled under a heavy comforter most of the year since we live on a mountain, my sons and husband are quite the Eskimos and normally love the cool, crisp air. This year however, we have been experiencing mid to high 50s which is not the normal for us and because of this, keeping warm is essential for my household, especially in the early morning when the boys are off to school. A favorite for my family are Hanes Fleece jackets and hoodies. They are comfy, easy to throw on and light weight to allow for layering so my guys are warm, but not hot.
Kevin, Luke and Isaiah love a jacket that will keep them warm in this cozy cuddly weather, but not make them too hot. With a fun graphic design, hood and zipper that moves easily, the boys love their hoodies over a heavy jacket and the Hanes hoodies and crew sweatshirts are warm without being too bulky.
Having active little ones means they need to be able to move freely and these are awesome for that. This is quite possibly the boys favorite item to throw on in the morning while on their way to school because it’s so comfy.
I love that Hanes sweatshirts are great looking and are comfortable wardrobe staples for my entire family. Whether out running errands or just lounging around the house, these sweatshirts are so cozy. Most importantly I find that I can find a sweatshirt or hoodie to match my fashion sense, available in basic colors like grey, black and blue but also bright shades like pink, orange and green. You don’t have to have just the basic heather grey shades any more and the colors all look great after washing. Check out that blue in the photo above, no fading and absolutely awesome color after a wash and dry.
Since my days normally consist of errands or mommy duties, it is absolutely essential that I am able to wear clothes that will keep me warm but allow me to be agile. But these are also favorites of our family to lounge around the house and keep warm. Since the weather has been chilly, this is great for just hanging out in the yard and spending family time with one another.
The perfect addiction for keeping warm while on a Starbucks run – I love that throwing on a Hanes fleece sweater or hoodie is fast, fun and still stylish. To embrace my girly side, I can throw on a pink sweater and still have a little dressy flare.
Lightweight, but still soft after many washes – these are the perfect addition for any person or family to keep warm without overheating. Hanes fleece sweaters and hoodies are definitely perfect for warm weather climates that are experiencing a chill during the Winter months or those looking to layer their warm clothes for the cold season.
These make simple fashion statements but I love that they are just so simple to throw on. If you are a fitness lover, you will surely love these to put on right after a work out to keep your muscles warm. Check out the styles and colors available at Hanes.com and at mass retailers near you.
How do you and your family members stay warm during the colder months? Are you a Hanes lover too?

I’m all about exercise and staying active, cardio and weight resistance, but I also love using resistance bands to help strengthen my ankles. About 6 years ago I sustained a bad injury to my left ankle, resulting in a class 3 sprain. Now, I would have rather my ankle break completely so that it would heal properly, but due to the fact that it did not, my injury is a burden constantly. Having had several physical therapy appointments over the years, resistance bands has become a part of my lifestyle. I have tried several different types and brands and found that the PhantomFit Resistance Loop Bands have become a favorite of mine to use.
The PhantomFit Resistance Loop Bands ($12.99) is an affordable way to get in your exercises without all the strain of weights. The sets include a total of four bands and one nylon carrying bag. The bands included are:
- 1 Blue “Light” Band
- 1 Red “Medium” Band
- 1 Green “Heavy” Band
- 1 Black “X-Heavy” Band
After injuring my ankle, I have been using resistance bands to strengthen my ankle. While most bands do work well, I like the fact that the PhantomFit bands come in four different strengths, allowing me to start my exercises with a light band and when I’m comfortable, work my way up to the X-Heavy band (black). I also like that my husband and sons can use the bands as well. My husband, who can easily use the Black band, enjoys using the bands to strengthen his shoulder (which he had surgery on about 6 years ago). As a family, we also love using the bands as a form of exercise in place of our weights. Using the bands work well form arm, leg and ankle work outs and I love that they are durable, light weight and portable. If we are traveling, this can easily be tucked into our luggage or overnight bag without taking up any room.
PhantomFit also offers a 100% lifetime no-hassle free replacement guarantee. If it breaks, they will replace it. Overall, I am impressed with these bands and my family and I have enjoyed them over the last month. We incorporate them in our daily work out routines as well as use them to strengthen the parts of our body that need Physical Therapy. This will definitely become a brand we will use moving forward in the future.

Aches and pains come in a wide variety for many people… and in our family – my husband and I suffer from inflammation and injuries that cause uncomfortable daily pain. Supplements and healthy eating eating help us with pain control so that pain medicines – especially narcotics are not needed as often.
About 3 years ago my husband was diagnosed with a Perforated disk between the L4 and L5 region in his spine, that leaks spinal fluid and irritates the nerve causing inflammation. Now, this diagnoses came after a few years of suffering without knowing the cause. Pain medication, anti-inflammatory medicine and even Cortisone shots are all provided to him to assist with pain management and while they may take the edge off sometimes (not all the time), my husband literally lives day in and day out in constant pain. We are very selective in our physical activities in that one wrong move could cripple him and doctors do not want to operate since he is so young and having to redo the surgery several times through out the rest of his live will be inevitable once the surgery is performed. I have minor injuries – all of which are a challenge to work with, but compared to my husband – not nearly as bad.
While we live daily with our aches and pains, we both do our best to increase the quality of our life by including healthy eating, exercise and of course supplements to increase mobility as well as decrease our pain levels. Since pain medicine is not something we enjoy taking or the side effects it gives to both of us, we try not to take them as much as possible. I have been reading about Turmeric and the benefits it offered so my husband and I were very excited to try this supplement out and see how it worked for both of us. Honestly, the benefits of Turmeric are quite plentiful so we were excited to see and feel what it could do for us. Even if it didn’t help tremendously with our normal pains, since both my husband and I are experience signs of Arthritis, we were in hopes to see some relief there.

Why is Nutraviva’s Turmeric Supplement the Premium Choice?
The major problem with turmeric is that the active component ‘Curcumin’ does not disolve very well and the efficiency of transporting it into the body’s cells is compromised. However Nutraviva’s premium Turmeric overcomes this problem as its a patented blend of Curcumin C3 Complex with Bioperine, which is proven to increase the bioavailability and absorption of Curcumin, making it much more effective than standard Turmeric supplements. We are not simply selling Turmeric extract like many other brands, but instead a premium Turmeric Curcumin C3 Complex with Bioperine!

I’m not gonna lie, the pills are kind of larger than I had expected and it freaked me out quite a bit. I love the fact that when you do take them however, that they do not have any funky after taste or any taste at all – major bonus. Keep in mind though, that because they are so large, make sure you swallow it with a lot of water so it goes down easily. After taking the pill just two days – my husband and I both noticed that while still achy and sore, our inflammation was tolerable. MAJOR BONUS! After a month of using the product while we still have pain and inflammation, we definitely noticed the difference in our mobility and how we felt. It’s hard to explain because we still experience pain, but you can tell a difference in how our body reacts to certain things and how we feel. Mind you – this is not a cure all, pain be gone type of pill but a supplement to help with ease of pain as well as other benefits.
After reading about Turmeric, some of the benefits include: Ease of Arthritic Pain, Bad Cholesterol, Inflammation, Blood Sugar Imbalances, Promotes Heart Health, Aids in Digestion, Helps prevent the early manifestation of Parkinson’s Disease, slows or delays Liver damage, slows or helps reverse Alzheimer’s Disease, Insulin Resistance, helps heal inflammatory bowl disease. This list is a small one compared to what I have been reading about Turmeric. While I’m not a doctor, it’s been nice to find different articles and first hand reviews on the product itself.
Like I mentioned earlier, this is not necessarily a cure all – or at least not yet or not for us as of yet… but it has helped to make pain a little more bearable by easing a lot of our inflammation. Yes – my husband and I still experience a ton of pain but it’s nice to know there are supplements out there along with those we already take that help with the issue instead of masking it like pain medicine does or dulling it. It truly feels like its combating our pain issues to make our quality of life better. Overall – if you experience some of these issues – while I’m not doctor, I suggest talking to your Physician to see if this may be something you can add to your daily vitamin intake, maybe it will work for you. I know my husband and I will continue to have Turmeric – more specifically Nutraviva’s Turmeric Curcumin supplement as a part of our daily supplement regimen.

Is it possible that a subscription service can dress you to impress? With so many things in the fashion and beauty industry evolving constantly, I can honestly say that a stranger can actually pick out a new set of trendy gear for you each month and offer you some new threads that will put a little swagger in your step. Recently, my husband and I had the opportunity to test out the Five Four Club and we were pretty amazed at what was in store.
So what exactly am I talking about? Five Four Club is a monthly men’s clothing subscription service that allows you or your man to try out new and trendy clothes and accessories at a discounted price – up to 70% off. If you are someone who is kept up to date with the latest trends, then you will see that Five Four Club offers a variety of clothing to suite the styles that are popular on the market today. Celebrities like Mark Wahlberg, 50 Cent and Eric Decker wear Five Four Club.
The monthly price: $60 a month
Ships to: United States and Canada – please note that Canada does require an additional shipping fee and Five Four only ships to the contiguous 48 states.
The process: Sign up and take a style survey. Stylists for Five Four Club then put together a package for you based on your style preferences. Each month you will receive a new selection of items.
The Five Four Scott Button Down in Black/White – Value $60.00
I was really excited to see this print and shirt in the box but unfortunately, even with a 3x (which is one size larger than my husband uses), this shirt did not fit him. My husband’s arm muscles are pretty large and therefore when he tried on the shirt, if he were to flex, the shirt would just rip to shreds. (Picture The Hulk – lol). We loved the print however and I know that even if my husband can’t get any use out of this button down, I will be able to use it for my Tomboy days.
Five Four Corona Gray Tapered Straight Leg Pants – Value $65.00
These awesome pants are well made and have a pretty cool and trendy material. I think these are definitely something that can be rocked out during the summer months with a cool t-shirt. While these are great, unfortunately they did not fit my husband and their largest size is 42 whereas because of my husbands height, he would need a 44-46. We were a bit bummed, but overall – we know that we will find someone that can make great use of them.
Overall: My husband and I were very impressed with the quality of the items received as well as the service altogether. If you are someone who loves to update your wardrobe, but don’t like the fuss of shopping, then this may be a great subscription service for you – if you’re a guy of course. The clothing pieces are well made and the styles available are on-trend. The only problem for us is that most of us that live in Hawaii can be a little larger than most (especially those of Hawaiian decent) and because of this their largest sizes were still cut too small for my husband both in height as well as in places like his shoulders. Like most of the subscription services available for fashion and clothing, that would be our biggest critique… as many of them do not offer plus sizes for their subscribers. Even if this may be the case, we were still very happy with the service overall as well as the clothing provided and very impressed in what they offered. The high value included in the box itself pays for the subscription service for that month quite easily and the quality of each item was superb and well made.
Have you heard of Five Four Club before? Is this something you would be interested in testing out?
