Five Four Club - Fashion for Men Review

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
We've all seen subscription services for women and children but I'd never heard of one available for men.  That is, until I come across Five Four Club.  Five Four Club is a men's monthly subscription service. For $60 a month, Five Four will send a package of apparel valued up to more than double its monthly cost.  Each month's package is determined based on the style profile that each member fills out upon sign up. With this information, Five Four style experts will be able to select the best package for each member.  Each month's package takes season, color, and the style profile into account.

If being part of a subscription service isn't your thing, Five Four Club gives you the option to purchase their apparel and accessories separately without having to sign up for a monthly membership.

With my husband beside me, we set up a style profile for him.  It was a simple process that involved clicking on which type of shirt, jeans, shoes, and accessories that he found most appealing.  With the choices he made, a profile was started and saved. 

Jason is not a monthly subscriber to the club subscription, so neither he or I can vouch for how well that works or the different pieces that are sent each month.  However, he was sent two articles of clothing for review from Five Four. 

The zip-up Jason received from Five Four is a lightweight jacket that works by itself or paired with a shirt underneath.  It is a tad on the snug side for Jason's liking but I think it looks good on him.  Logan and Adam, my teenage boys, have showed an interest in the zip-up and have even worn it a couple times themselves.  The jacket is perfect for this time of year when the weather isn't at its hottest and there's still a chill in the air at times.

The pullover shirt Jason received is also a tad on the snug side but he states he'll gladly wear it underneath a hoodie or button-down shirt.  The fabric is soft and features the Five Four logo.  The blue and white striping with a pop of red is a pleasing combination of colors. 

Jason likes the clothing that's offered from Five Four and states it's an exceptional site to check in for men that are looking for stylish pieces or even for men that want a stylist to do the "shopping" for them.
