- too busy to shop
- stuck in a style rut
- want to bother but can't be bothered
- do not have a wife/girlfriend who buy their clothes for them (my husband is in this last category)
Chapar is a new clothes delivery service for men based upon their personal style. Words from their about us page says "The Chapar concept originated from a father and son who believed that the way men buy clothes is fundamentally flawed. Frankly, men don’t like to shop. They don’t like shopping on the high street and they don’t like shopping online"
I registered for my husband who was 'too busy' to do it. It took me less than 5 minutes to register and tick boxes for his 'style' - they did encourage a stylist to call me back to discuss further but even I was too busy for this. Upon registration you do have to pay £1 (which is refundable against any purchase/the return of the trunk). This makes sense to safeguard the clothes they are sending and to verify the address details/card holder etc.
You have to understand a few things before we launch into the photos - MY HUSBAND IS NOT A MODEL. HE HAS NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE. HE WAS NOT 100% COMFORTABLE ABOUT DOING IT (but as they kindly offered him an item of clothing for free he was encouraged (by me) to suck it up and just get on with it. Thank you James for being such a good sport!
Packaging - gorgeous, everything was wrapped beautifully in tissue paper with string around the 'outfits' - seriously, men, you do not need to think - just wear!
I'm going straight on in with the photos - here we go?
And he says I'm the clown who fools around always .. the camera never lies!
FREE POLO SHIRT! **Avenue 57 Promotion**
When you register, enter avenue57 into the box when prompted. The promotion is for any person who registers and orders a trunk. From the trunk you do have to make a purchase but it can be something as simple as a pair of socks! Any person who uses this code will receive a free Sunspel Polo in their first trunk.
What did he say about the service/experience: "I was sceptical at first I have to say. Fiona encouraged me to try it out and I can see how it works now. I thought the way they arranged the outfits together in neat bundles was good. They also made sure that I was able to mix a shirt with a pair of trousers/jeans and change it all around for more outfits. I don't like shopping, I hate trying things on in the shops and so this was really good for me. The free delivery and free returns from venue of my choice (work or home) made it even easier"
What did my husband keep? This rather gorgeous jacket that came to Barcelona with us and was worn when we went out for lunch this weekend.
Do you know a man who would benefit from a service like this? Be sure to send them to The Chapar, I cannot rate highly enough the simplicity of the service.
