Bombfell is a monthly subscription service for men that uses personal stylists to select attire to help you have a more elevated and fashionable look based on style preferences. This box provides you with great value for the items shipped and allows you to look your best while saving money.
Compared to other subscription boxes, this company has a different take on how their monthly service works. There is no subscription fee, stylist fee, or shipping fee. You are only charged for the items included you choose to keep.
The company carries clothing that you would wear on a date, out to dinner, and out around home. They define their current collections as men’s casual-wear. They carry everything from what you would wear on a couch all the way to a suit.
When you receive your monthly subscription box from Bombfell, you are only charged per item you decide to keep. Although the box comes with several pieces of clothing that are both more expensive and cheaper, the average price point per item this company provides in their box is $89. The company tries to provide you with articles of clothing that are in your price range.
The company provides clothing from many different brands to help you have a diverse selection to choose from. Some of the brands they provide you with are:
Because Bombfell does things different than other companies, they have created a personal style selector to help determine what best fits your tastes.
When you sign up for their service, you are first prompted with a questionnaire which will help them determine what to ship to you every month. The following is a step by step guide of the questionnaire you will complete:
Although you cannot give a subscription box as a gift, you can provide friends or family members with a gift card that can be applied to clothing kept when they sign up for the service. You can do that by heading over to the gift section of the website.
We took a look through the reviews that were provided on the company Facebook page. There is a healthy mix of both positive and negative reviews.
The positives that the reviewers talk about are this company takes measurements for the clothing, body type, and skin tone so they can match you with clothing that compliments you. They like the fact that a stylist picks out the items that go with the personal style you have provided them. They also enjoy the easy shipping for the returns after you try on the clothing in the comfort of your own home.
Some of the negative reviews revolve around you having to be specific and provide accurate information about who is being dressed. Others say that it could be hard to describe your body type and preferred fit. Overall the negative reviews focus on the length of the survey than other boxes that provide the same service. Depending on your preference, these are things that could be forgiven.
Bombfell ships once a month depending on the date you sign up for the service. You can also choose to change the frequency in which you receive a box. You can change this under your “settings” in the “about you” section of your account when you log-in. You can change it to once every two months or once every three months.
All boxes are sent via USPS and FedEx and shipping is always free.

To cancel your subscription you can log into your account and cancel your box in the dashboard. You also have the option to pause your subscription there as well if you want to hold off receiving monthly shipments for a while.
Bombfell was the brainchild of Jason Kim and Bernie Yoo. They originally met as college roommates at Harvard, where they built their wardrobes on free t-shirts handed out by dot-com companies with no real sense of style.
Prior to Bombfell, Jason co-founded an eCommerce site which was financially backed and funded, was a lead engineer at Lolapps, and worked at Microsoft and Goldman Sachs. Bernie was in charge of business development for the Nickelodeon Games Group, worked at MTV Networks, and worked in investment banking at Morgan Stanley.
After some time, they both found they no longer had the time and the knowledge necessary to dress well. They would both often ask their female friends to pick out clothes for them every time they decided to go shopping. They realized how frustrating going shopping was and decided to create Bombfell to alleviate that stress.
