How It Works

The subscription box is designed for men on a budget who want to build up their wardrobe. The clothes are picked out for the casual man who likes to dress for the weekend.

Over 12 months, members will receive New Republic footwear, Grand AC athleisure clothing, and Five Four contemporary wear. As a part of the club, you also unlock the power of member-only pricing at the e-commerce store Menlo House and other perks, including various promotions.

The signup process is simple and straightforward. When you get to the homepage, click on the orange “get started” button toward the top right. You will then fill out a short style quiz. Here, you give information about your style, fit, and sizes to help the company pick out the right clothes for your monthly package.

You will have the option to select a mix, casual, or forward style. You then choose either a monthly subscription (delivered every month) or a seasonal one (every three months). The website will ask you about your top size and shoe size to complete the quiz.

After putting in your payment information and joining the club, you will then be set to receive your first package within the next 1-2 weeks.

What Makes Menlo Club Unique?

For anyone who is looking to gradually upgrade the wardrobe without putting a massive dent in the wallet, Menlo Club is a great option. You will get great value for your package by paying $60 for 2-3 items that are usually worth $120 at the retail level. These are also brands that are trusted and established. You accomplish all of these benefits without having to spend time shopping at the store each month.

You end up with a style that is unique to your preference, and the quiz is in-depth when asking you the preliminary questions. The support team is also very responsive and is quick to get back with you for a size or style change.

Menlo Club Reviews

Based on reviews from Ask Men, Menlo Club received a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars. Based on what consumers are saying, they are impressed at the price you pay compared to the retail value. There there is not a wide array of brands included in the subscription service. But the quality you are getting is excellent for what the budget-friendly young man is looking to achieve.

Certain people think the company could do better with its branding and packaging, along with the need for more subscription options. But overall, a majority of the reviews agree that you are getting a great deal with Menlo Club.

Company History

Menlo Club got formed as a subscription service extension of the Five Four Group, a holding company for fashion brands and services. Dee Murthy and Andres Izquieta, two students from the University of Southern California, became best friends at a house on Menlo Avenue (influencing the name). They wanted to create a brand that represents their lifestyle and beliefs: a brand that challenges the rules and systems.

Started in 2002, the company held brands like Five Four, Young & Reckless, New Republic, Grand AC, Oshenta, Ales Grey, Club Fantasy, and Midnight Studios. At first, the company was contingent on the department stores because the traditional retail model was the first option for final consumers. As they continued to evolve with the market, they revamped Five Four and took everything online. Their goal is to help people look stylish with minimal effort.

Today, the original founders operate the Menlo House and Club, making fashion simple, secure, and approachable. The company also partnered up with award-winning New York designer Mark McNairy, who leads the design team. The company headquarters is located in Los Angeles, California.
