The post-quarantine world is ever so slowly emerging. As we all take our tentative steps back into the world, this is a time to reassess many things in our lives. One of the more fun options is to think about how want to look, today and in the future. This is the perfect time to find new styles and discover a new look that’s ideal for you and your future self. That’s where Nordstrom’s Personal Styler Trunk Club can help you out.

The Trunk Club is one of Nordstrom’s virtual services men can access to get all the benefits of a personal stylist from the comfort of your own home. With a Nordstrom Trunk Club subscription, a man who’s keen to spruce up his look gets a personalized connection for guidance choosing clothing and accessories that are right for his body and style -fr- all in the most convenient manner possible. Let’s take a look at why it works so well.

The Cure for Misdirected Impulse Buying Mistakes

The Nordstrom Trunk Club aims to save you plenty of cash while providing you with great clothing. That’s exactly what we’d expect from one of the best affordable online clothing stores for men. The thinking behind it is that the Nordstrom team helps offer expert guidance on what to buy so that you avoid impulse buying things that simply don’t suit you.

Typically, items range from $50 to $300 and there’s always the option to set your budget preferences so you don’t overspend. Crucially, you only ever pay for what you decide to keep with shipping and returns always free so it’s the ideal way to find something that works for you with minimal hassle and expense.

. You can dip into the Nordstrom Trunk Club whenever it suits you or choose to schedule a new purchase as often as you like. The no-risk and no-hassle approach mean there’s simply nothing to lose here. The only cost is a $25 styling fee but it’s applied toward anything you decide to purchase and is waived for Nordstrom cardmembers so you won’t have to worry here.

The Nordstrom Trunk Club starts with its well-designed Style Quiz. To buy the right items for you, you need to know what the right clothing is. Nordstrom gets that, which is why it has the Style Quiz to help you out. Functioning as a personal stylist, it starts with you simply entering a few details such as your location, your general style, and the colors you like or dislike, and the Style Quiz does all the hard work for you. You can even pick out specific materials that you particularly like wearing or that you feel suit you best. It’s also possible to pick out favorite brands and how well-fitting the clothing is, before describing your size and then moving onto your budget.

Ever had a conversation with someone about your style? This is exactly like that but without the hassle or potential embarrassment of having to discuss sizes openly with a stranger. You can work on figuring out your style and look comfortably from home without needing to head anywhere or book an appointment. It offers all the advantages of a personal stylist service with none of the drawbacks.

If you’d prefer an even more personal connection, you can also set up a virtual Nordstrom Styling Appointment at a time that’s convenient for you. You can book an appointment for a free 30-minute video chat with a Nordstrom stylist for advice on your style, fashion, and even personal products to polish your style.

Oris’ 120th anniversary watch is a sleek, all-black Divers Sixty-Five
Oris drops an all-black Divers Sixty-Five for 120th anniversary
Oris 2024 Holstein edition

When you're between the ages of 1 and, let's say, 13, birthdays are a big deal; your friends come over, there's a big cake and candles, perhaps a magician or a clown shows up to scare everyone, and if you're lucky, it takes place at a roller rink or a bowling alley. Well, Oris watches are turning 120, meaning they've matured quite a bit since the days of party hats and streamers. The Swiss watchmaker has released a Hölstein Edition (named after its hometown) every year for the past five years in order to celebrate its anniversary, with just 250 pieces. Oris uses these Hölstein Editions every year to create some truly head-turning watches, and this year is no different.

Oris watches made 2024 even more special since they hit the big 1-2-0 and gave their ever-popular retro dive watch, the Divers Sixty-Five, an all-black makeover. And when we say "all black," we literally mean all black with not an accent color in sight minus the date window, which is printed in white (after reading that, Batman said, "No, thanks.")
