The Chapar: E-personal Styling experience at its Finest

Friday, July 12, 2013 3 No tags Permalink 0

Have you ever had a dream about getting a true personal styling experience and get all your season-shopping done without actually having to leave your comfortable home? Well let me tell you, the dream has actually just turned into reality.


Whether you are the kind of man who’s too busy – or shall we say, too cool – to shop or the kind of guy who actually hates wandering around town looking for the perfect outfit, The Chapar is the answer for all the troubled men out there.

 

I’ve had the pleasure to discover The wonderful Chapar team of stylists during the last London Collections Men as they approached me while standing at the YMC show, one thing led to another and soon enough I was totally hooked by the great concept behind the brand. Personal styling. No shopping! Two sentences that seem to work so great together.

 

I have got a confession to make, and I admit I am not the biggest fan of roaming from shop to shop as it can be tiring, time consuming and pretty much pointless unless you know what you want to buy. As much as I love clothes, wasting time isn’t my favourite hobby.

 

On the other hand, I am a big fan of online shopping, I do love a bit of personal styling as well and have someone who can help me choose and discuss what’s good and what’s right for me, and The Chapar team just surprised me with their great quality of service and amazing styling suggestions.

 

Now, talking more in dept about how it all works; It is actually very simple, you subscribe on their website (www.thechapar.com), you fill in all the infos by going through a little cheeky questionnaire – I promise you it will only take 5 mins of your time – about what you usually wear, your favourite brands and your sizes – if you are in desperate need of shoes, or a pair of trousers, you can make sure you will get what you need by adding a specific note to your personal stylist – and then you wait a few days to receive your trunk full of clothes. How cool is that?!?

 

You are free to try everything you want – you have 10 days to do that – once you are ready,put in the box whatever you don’t want, get your stylist to arrange the pick up and get charged for what you kept in your wardrobe. EASY PEASY!

After receiving my first personalised trunk, I decided to meet up with Shaunie – my own Chapar stylist – for a little chat and get the chance to try out all the clothes she specifically chose for me, and put together two outfits. 
 
I admit it, It was almost like Christmas all over again, the only difference was the sun and the actual heat: opening a beautifully packed box and finding clothes folded was the best part.

I went through everything; there was all I could possibly think of and need: t-shirts, polos, formal shirts, casual ones… a pair of chinos and even a jacket! – do you guys think she knew about my little fetish for jackets?!? – as well as a decent selection of sexy underwear, swimming shorts and socks 

– lets all admit it here, we all hate having to buy underwear and socks and we just wait for Christmas for mom to come up with the solution –
 
Checking out the box from top to bottom wasn’t the best part after all, my favourite part was actually trying out the clothes and mixing and matching what we had.
Thanks to Shaunie, I got her to help me styling the two looks for this post, and this is pretty much the result:
LOOK 001:

HENTSCH MAN Baseball Jacket 
SUNSPEL Sweat Top
Dr Denim Personalized Shorts
Topman Desert boots
Michael Kors Oversized Rose-gold Watch
 
LOOK 002:

HENTSCH MAN Sunday Denim Shirt
RIDING HIGH  Frankfort S/S T-shirt

The Chapar will certainly help you ease your stress when it comes to clothes shopping, give you the best of fashion while keeping it very you – or the way you want to appear, if you feel like changing your style – and adding a personal online experience with a stylist who will make sure you will look dapper whenever you require. This is definitely what every cool gent needs in life!
