I am reviewing the store as I can't seem to find any place to review their "monthly" subscription service.


I ordered my first package January 21,2015. I was promptly billed. I got an email that day saying it was shipped. after many phone calls asking where it was they said on it's way.   FINALLY a month later they decided to send out a new package with extra items for my troubles and said they would send warm clothes as i live in NH.


So I waited ANOTHER three weeks, mind you i was also billed for February. I got my package yesterday MARCH 5,2015. I open it to find a tee shirt with grease stains, a sweater that was loosely knitted so it was see through, which would provide 0 warmth, and it also had a large hole in the back of it. o and my free gift was an extremely thin scarf (supposedly worth 30$) I've bought better on amazon for 6$.


So i called them and complained and said cancel my subscription. Their response of course made no note of my canceling of the service, and they asked for pictures and would send me another package. I said i want a return label and they just said we will send new items.


I DONT WANT NEW ITEMS. I waited over 2.5 months for my first package and it was all garbage, why would i want more trash and have to wait many more months?


needless to say i am calling my credit card company.



DONT SIGN UP FOR THIS SCAM AND TAKE NOTE HOW ANYONE REVIEWING THEM WITH POSITIVE REMARKS THEN INCLUDES A DEAL FOR 15% OFF AS THEY GET MONEY FOR RECOMMENDATIONS.

@something12114 Hi- I work with Bombfell's customer experience team, and I'm so sorry to hear about this. Also sorry that we're only getting back to you about this now as we don't regularly check this article.


May I ask whether you emailed bombsquad@bombfell.com? We have an internal goal of 24-hour response time, so I'm really sorry if we didn't get back to you within that window. 


I'm also sorry, but we don't offer thin scarves as free gifts, so just wanted to make sure that your comments are being directed towards Bombfell and not another service.


Any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at bombsquad@bombfell.com. We're serious about that 24-hour response time and we're serious about wanting to make this right.


Best,

Sandro

I would be concerned about one of these companies pulling info about me they find on social nets, etc.  Why? Well, for one I do feel it is an invasion of privacy and two there is no guarantee what they locate is still me. I am different from how I was 10 or 5 years ago. My style has gone from more "out there" to more conservative.

And if anyone wants to try it for a least one month, you can use this code for 15 bucks off.. so its only 45 instead of 60 for just trying for one month...  here is the code RE325245

I have done it for 3 months, never got a 'box', it usually shipped in a white envelope. I received several versions of the same style of shirt, different colors. Want to cancel but can't get them to pick up the phone. House brands probably not worth the value of major label who seem to have better quality (wrinkle-free, no holes, etc.). Don't bother...

@evan_walton25  Just got my first box, and I already really like this service. None of the complaints you might find on the internet are accurate. The products are quality, and the shipment got there right around the time they said it would get there.

Really enjoying Bombfell, pretty cool service, only issue I've had is fit. I've found that half the time I get my clothes they don't fit right. Just started using Fashion Metric, looks like they've got the fit problem solved and some pretty cool brands. Still I've only used them once so just getting started, has anyone else used them?

I use Tog + Porter and LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Every box feels like a gift and they get my style/fit every time.  Really impressed with this company and their customer service is unbelievable. Maureen is THE nicest and is always willing to help out even when I need an impromptu styling session. I heart TOG + PORTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@nickcarbone, thank you so much for the mention!  Just had my first LIVE style session from your article recommendation!  Tog + Porter is a one-stop-shop for head to toe looks that tailor each box to a women’s individual needs and lifestyle.

 Like @MickeyCashen said, we've got the eye for style!!!

@JCPianiste  – hope to hear from you soon!

Make sure you shop with someone with an eye for style - especially if you, like me, don't have such and eye yourself!  I picked out a gray pinstripe suit in a store and went looking for a typical white shirt and gray tie to go with it.  A woman was suit-shopping for her son and I said, "Excuse me, I have a little color blindness and want to make sure the things I'm buying match.  She shook her head negatively at my shirt and tie choices and said, "Let's really get you looking good in that nice suit."  She ended up picking out a blue shirt and blue plus other colors tie.  The combination's been a hit every time I wear it: in fact, I'm wearing it on stage in my logo.  I never going clothes shopping now without taking someone with an eye for style!

Do any of these sites include women in their clientele?  I'd like to try something like this but it seems these sites all assume men are the only ones who'd be interested...
