About the Company

Trunk Club (trunkclub.com) was started to solve a simple problem – shopping for clothes in stores or online just doesn’t work for most people. It’s overwhelming, inconvenient, and takes way too much time. With Trunk Club, men and women discover awesome clothes that are perfect for them without ever having to go shopping. We combine top brands, expert service, and unparalleled convenience to deliver a highly personalized experience that helps people look their best and saves them time.

We start by scouring the planet for the very best in men’s and women’s apparel, curating an ever-evolving assortment of pieces from our favorite designers. With the best inventory anywhere as our point of departure, an expert on our team hand-selects a trunk of items based on each customer’s needs and tastes. They keep what they love and send the rest right back to us. In addition to this, we offer a custom clothing program in which clients can create outfits from scratch. Since the garments are custom-made to members’ specifications, you can design exactly what you want, as opposed to settling for something you almost love.

Our team is based in Chicago, Washington, DC, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Charleston, & Boston. We have grown from four to over 1,100 since starting out in December 2009. We're actively looking to find amazing people to join our team. Are you interested?
