It's never been easier to dial your personal style down to your exact preferences, which might have gotten you looking into Stitch Fix vs. Trunk Club -- the two are among the most popular, innovative personal styling services on the market today, after all. And yet, there are nuances between the two companies, which makes it all the more important to really do your research before you take the plunge and commit to one (or even try one out to begin with). Either way, both can likely help you on the path toward style greatness on the daily, no matter where you live, the styles you like, or what you envision your ideal wardrobe to be.

Both came to prominence right around the same time: Trunk Club debuted in 2009, Stitch Fix debuted in 2011 -- but each has taken a different path to get you the clothes you want. Right off the bat, you'll notice that Trunk Club is now part of Nordstrom, making it even more convenient to stock up on ultra-personalized style picks as well as other staples from the long-running department store.

There are clothing subscription boxes for men available to fit pretty much any budget. Some services only charge a minimal styling fee, around $20. After that, you only pay for the price of the clothing, and even the shipping is free. They offer clothing at a wide range of prices but they all have very affordable options. You can start with one session and do more if you like the service.

Other services charge by monthly fee and you don’t get to choose exactly what you get, only what your style preferences are. They all provide a type of style quiz to fill out that will guide the service toward your personal style needs. These services tend to offer several tiered pricing options with the lowest tier usually well under $100.
