Trunk Club Unboxing

Finally, another video blog! This one is a little longer than the time travel vlog and the ladder golf vlog, but I can promise that I edited it quite a bit, so every moment matters. Also, the cats make numerous appearances. There’s even a special “director’s cut scene” at the end, just like the bonus scenes at the end of Marvel movies. Except a lot weirder.

I apologize for the amount of crotch in this video. It ended up being the unintended theme. I also mention the pants pouch blog entryΒ from the past.

 

What do you think of this concept. Ladies, would you suggest this to your guy friends/lovers/family members? Guys, is it something you’d try? There’s no risk–if you don’t like the clothes, you can return the whole box at no charge.

If you’re interested in checking out Trunk Club, e-mail my stylist, Sailu, at sailu@trunkclub.com. She’s great!

    Brilliant. =) And yes, you ought not to suffer constriction upon wearing denim.

    Jamey, stop worrying about your pants pouch. Keep the most comfortable pants ever. They look great. And yes, I will suggest this to my brother and as soon as I find one, the significant other. Lol That is a smart service!

    • Jamey Stegmaier says:

      Haha…thanks Shannon. I put them on again this morning just to feel how comfortable they were…pretty amazing. Let me know if your brother gives it a try! Sailu (mentioned at the end of the entry) is great.

    Awesome! That was a great unboxing. I like the concept of trunk club as well, although I don’t know if I’d be able to keep clothes that are as expensive as what you mentioned regardless of how wonderful they are.

    I’m torn on the comfortable pants. While there is significant value in comfort, button clasps are one of the worst inventions ever. I don’t understand why clothing designers decided to eschew the zipper in favor of the button. It’s an evoluationary step backward, like having wheels on a cart and deciding to take them off go back to dragging the cart along the ground.

    • Jamey Stegmaier says:

      Thanks Trev. The expense is a concern to me too. I told my stylist that I’d “literally pay anything” for the perfect pair of jeans, so I have to decide if I really mean that.

      And I hear you about the button clasps. There must be a reason for it. Does anyone know?

      • T-Mac says:

        By the way, when did you start wearing v-neck solid color t-shirts like the one in the vlog? That looks like something that should have come in the box. Hopefully this is in style because I think they make up about 1/2 of my non-trashy wardrobe.

        • Jamey Stegmaier says:

          I got a few t-shirts like that a month or so ago. I’ve been told that it’s in style to wear them just like that. I got a few from American Apparel that had a really deep V, but it was too deep for me to handle. No nip slips on jameystegmaier.com.

  4. Ansley says:

    Wow, that’s a great concept and I wish they had it for women! I pretty much only buy online at stores where I know my sizes (women are often different sizes at different stores).

    I say the pants pouch is inevitable. Go with the freakishly comfy jeans and just let the people around you be wowed. I would have appreciated a rear view in order to ascertain the most important part of a pair of jeans: pocket placement. Pockets make the difference between having a so-so flat butt and a nice, round bubble butt. Can we get that rear view? πŸ˜‰

  5. Christine says:

    Didn’t you ever have a pair of 501 jeans in the 90s? I had no idea they were coming back in style, but I guess it was inevitable.

    Do they carry tall men’s clothing? Because if they do, my brother and boyfriend would both probably be interested. Unfortunately, they’re 6’3″ and 6’5″ respectively so while they’re not big shoppers to begin with, it’s even harder to find stuff their sizeβ€”even when they have shopper women on the hunt for them. If they’re not offering tall men’s clothes yet, they should. It’s a common problem for men that tall.

    • Jamey Stegmaier says:

      501 jeans? Never wore them. I’m pretty sure I spent the 90s clad entirely in khaki.

      That’s a good question about tall men’s clothing. I do know that most of the pants they send you have to be hemmed to fit your size. All of my pants are about 6 inches too long. I’m 5’10”, so perhaps they would fit your tall brother/boyfriend.

    1. Solid vlog. At first I just thought it was going to be you going through the box and holding up clothes and I was a little disappointed. The choice to have a mini-fashion show was perfect though. Are you keeping the jeans, and did you like any of the other clothes enough to shell out the dough?

    2. “Why is that man so turned on…in church?” Hahahahaha!

    3. Those jeans look great, but you could probably buy them for 29.99 plus shipping and handling. Because I’m pretty sure those are Pajama Jeans. For men. I don’t think I’ve ever seen men’s jeans that have that much stretch to them!

    4. I seriously made a WTF face when you sniffed the belt. I was like, “Did he just sniff that belt?” But then you owned up to it, and it made a little more sense. Even if you did smell it a few more times after that. πŸ™‚

    • Jamey Stegmaier says:

      1. You should see the uncut version. That’s exactly what it is. I haven’t decided about the jeans–it’s a lot of money, but probably worth it for one pair. I don’t think they’re pajama jeans! πŸ™‚ Ha ha ha…

      Also, I was too busy editing the video to try on the shirts. I’ll do that tonight.

      4. This is the reality of the smelling circle. Don’t you smell new books? Fresh leather? New cars? I think everyone is a part of the smelling circle in a small way.

    • Red says:

      I threatened to get my gf a pair of “pajeamas”. She was not amused.

  7. Red says:

    I didn’t see pricing for loincloths on their site.

  8. Jasmin says:

    Looking good there, Jamey. πŸ˜‰ Nice shirt. And those jeans are hot! Not digging the buttons though. They make trips to the bathroom a hassle. I found jeans like that before and tried them on. Freaking comfortable, but those buttons were not worth it to me to buy them. When I have to go, I HAVE to go. There’s no waiting to unbutton four to five buttons. Yeah, the price for fashion is hefty. $98 for a shirt. *wide eyed*

    I like the video. Look forward to more of them. πŸ™‚ And there’s no cow lick this time. Yay!

  9. John Aughey says:

    As a married grown man, I felt a little uncomfortable watching another man talk about and try on clothing. Not that I was uncomfortable watching, but that I knew what I was going to see when I hit play and actually enjoyed the video. I might need to go out into the woods and kill something now.

    • Jamey Stegmaier says:

      John–Completely understood. I was worried about that as I was editing. I’d recommend pounding a beer, grilling a steak, and using a hatchet on something (anything).

  10. Neeraja says:

    Keep the butt jeans.

  11. Aaron says:

    The main thing I gleaned from this vlog is that the kitties are on board w/ the Trunk Club. They’re indifferent to Sailu, unfortunately.

    • Jamey Stegmaier says:

      Dude, the cats LOVE Trunk Club. It may have been their happiest day. Trunk Club should really amp up their marketing to cat owners.

  12. Jen says:

    Jamey, two suggestions:

    1) This would have been a perfect opportunity to do some breakdancing/ Beyonce dance moves to really get a sense of movement for the jeans/ pants.

    2) What are the brands of the outfits/ pants?

    Criticism aside, this was an entertaining and informative post. I might try this out for husband (it’s tough to find clothes for him b/c he’s so slim, but he might balk at the prices, he likes to buy clothes at thrift shops so even $20 for him is a lot for a shirt–it’s the hipster thing). Is there shipping for the Trunk Club/ extraneous costs for styling etc.?

    I second a vote for Lucky Jeans, the most comfortable, stretchy, durable, versatile jeans I have ever owned, worth the price. I’ve never tried 7 Jeans but others swear by it, but it’s pricey, at least $120 a pop.

    Also, has anyone ever told you, you resemble or seem like a cross between Jason Bateman and Peter Krause (you look more like Krause than Bateman?). Just curious who your celebrity doppelganger is?

    The end.

    • Jamey Stegmaier says:

      Jen–Who is to say I wasn’t dancing off camera? πŸ™‚

      The brand of the jeans is Genetic Denim and the khakis are Jack Spade.

      Nope, you don’t pay for shipping or the stylist. I’m sure those prices are built in somewhere, but I think they buy their clothes in bulk, so you’re essentially getting the normal price for the clothes + stylist + shipping for free.

      Lucky Jeans stretch? I might need to check them out if I don’t keep these.

      I’ve heard Jason Bateman quite a bit, but this is the first I’ve heard Peter Krause. I had to look him up. I kind of see it! Perhaps Bateman and Krause sired a child at some point.
