This is going to be a fun review because it’s a clothing subscription service for my husband, Kyle. First I’ll start out by explaining how Five Four Club works. You start by taking a short style quiz (like, very short) and then their stylists send you up to three clothing items matching your preferences every month. All clothing is the Five Four brand. The service costs $60 a month, and all the clothes they send you are yours to keep. They do offer exchanges for sizes, but otherwise don’t accept returns. In addition, you also get a discount on the items they sell on their website.
In this package Kyle got two items: an olive button-down shirt and a pair of black pants. On to the reveal!
Here are the two pieces styled together in an outfit.
Aiken Olive Button Down
- Size: Large
- Color: Olive
- Fabric: 55% Cotton, 45% Spandex
- Washing Instructions: Machine Wash/Tumble Dry Low
For a casual look, Kyle wore the shirt open over another shirt he previously got from Five Four Club, and shorts bought at Old Navy. The dressed up look is over a pair of Five Four jeans he got last month.
My opinion: This shirt is very lightweight – it would seem summer appropriate except the color is kind of drab. I’m not sure why they sent this shirt when it’s almost summer.
Kyle’s opinion: It’s fine. Looks fine to me.
Giovane Black Pant
- Size: Large
- Color: Olive
- Fabric: 97% Cotton, 3% Spandex
- Washing Instructions: Machine Wash/Hang Dry
While Kyle will probably usually wear these pants with a graphic tee, for the casual look we stepped it up a little bit and paired it with a shirt he received from Trunk Club a few months ago. These pants are pretty skinny, so for a dressed up look we went for a buttoned plaid shirt, because Kyle says if he had done a regular button-up with a tie it would have made him look like a salsa dancer.
My opinion: These look and feel like a good quality, but again I’m a bit perplexed as to why they would send a pair of black pants at the end of May. It’s unlikely Kyle will wear these until the winter, as it is he’s already been wearing shorts for a month.
Kyle’s opinion: They’re fine. They have two legs, a zipper, and a button. They function perfectly fine as pants. I don’t know what you want me to say.
I like the idea of Five Four Club, but you don’t get a whole lot of control over the items they send you, and there isn’t a return/exchange option. Otherwise if you (or your man) isn’t very picky about clothes this would be a great option.
This month Kyle gave Five Four Club a “thumbs up” rating. However, he says “clothes are like pillows; you buy what you need and then you don’t buy anymore for awhile.” So we will probably skip at least a couple of months of this subscription. Kyle will be starting a new job at the University of Minnesota soon, so maybe he will need some new clothes then.
