With that in mind, I still decided to try this subscription just for the fun of it. It's fairly expensive at $60/month but you do receive two items. The suggested retail value of the items should add up to over $120 according to Five Four Club. Since they make all their own clothing, they can put whatever price they want on their items. I don't have a problem with that because it's basically paying $30 each for the items I do receive. I find that reasonable.
The total suggested retail value for these items was $150. Both items were made in China.
It's a cotton/polyester weave and is fairly thin. If you hold it up to the light you can see through it easily. I don't know if that matters but there you go.
The December shipment was far more problematic.
It did take several weeks for them to process the return and send me the new, unstained version. Again, loose threads all over, even in the new shirt. Thankfully, no stain, though.
VERDICT: Not impressed. Actually, there's only one thing I'm holding against Five Four Club. The quality. The quality is not what you would expect for something that supposedly cost $60-$70. It is however, what I would expect from a clothing item that costs $30. I like the styles and the cuts of the items we received. I didn't mind the pleather on the hoodie. While I wish they weren't made in China, it seems like everything is these days. I'd give them more credit if their items were made in the USA.
So here's what I would say to someone considering a subscription. You will receive stylish, interesting clothing items according to your style profile (which you can change as often as you like) but do not expect long-lasting quality from what you are receiving. You are getting exactly what you are paying for.
