Wantable Men’s Fitness Subscription Review – June 2017
Wantable Men’s Fitness is a monthly subscription box service that is focused around athletic and loungewear. When signing up, you answer a simple, yet in-depth survey so your stylist gets a feel for the type of clothing you’re looking for. Item prices range from $40-$70 based on your personal preference, and you can skip a month or cancel at any time.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Each box arrives with a booklet that includes a note from your stylist, along with an invoice and return label.
This is my detailed invoice noting the products that are in my box, the sizing, and cost of each item. Total cost to keep all 7 items would be $344.00. If I kept 5 or more items, I would receive a 20% discount ($68.80), the $20 styling fee deducted, the average price per piece would average at $36.45.
I also received a booklet promoting Wantable‘s Stream feature.
Wantable Men’s Fitness also includes a USPS return bag for anything that I’d like to return. You can either schedule a free pickup or drop off at your local post office or mailbox.
Neighborhood Henley Long Sleeve Shirt by Cory Vines – Cost to keep: $38
Composition: 54% Acrylic /39% Viloft / 7% Spandex
This is probably one of the softest articles of clothing I have ever tried on! The material is somewhat cooling to the skin when worn and the rich color is right up my alley. The material, however, being so soft and clingy, really shows all the problem areas that I’d rather not show off. Even though this was more under loungewear, you could toss this on with a pair of jeans or shorts and it would make a casual and comfortable outfit. Since there were some fit issues, this one will be going back.
Tower Tee by MPG Sport – Cost to keep: $44
Composition: 94% Polyester / 6% Spandex
This is a pretty great workout shirt and can be paired basically with anything for any workout or lounging activity. The moisture wicking and quick dry material is basically a must for me when breaking a sweat and as an added bonus; the material has Polygiene Odor Control technology, which keeps the clothes from smelling!
I really enjoy the subtle V-neck here. It makes the whole tee a bit more special than others out in the market. I do however have something similar, so this one will be going back.
Eco Zip Hoodie by Alternative Apparel – Cost to keep: $44
Composition: 50% Poly / 38% Cotton / 12% Rayon
This hoodie is so soft and comfortable! I love the heather grey color; it will fit perfectly into my wardrobe with a pair of jeans and sneakers. I have quite a few pieces from the brand, Alternative Apparel, and I basically live in a few of them. This one will surely be added to the rotation with the high quality, versatile color and attractive price of $44!
Hype 3.0 Solid 7″ Shorts by MPG Sport – Cost to keep: $60
Composition: Shell & Lining: 90% Polyester / 10% Spandex
These shorts are great and the quality is very high! The moisture wicking material has Polygiene Odor Control, so I won’t have to worry about these getting too smelly.
The fit and length is spot on for my body type and the simple black color will make it easy to match for any active outfit.
I especially enjoy the compression liner, which goes about halfway down my quad. I have quite a few pairs with this feature but the quality of this liner is much better than anything I own. These are a winner and I can’t wait to go running in them!
Expedite Tee by MPG Sport – Cost to keep: $42
Composition: 88% Polyester / 12% Spandex
This is such a cool workout tee and not like most you see at the gym. The moisture wicking, Polygiene Odor Control material is key, but what makes it so special are the details.
The double knit collar, contrast stripes, and V-neck really makes this a quality workout shirt! I, however, didn’t love the fit so this will be going back. This bums me out because this is a pretty versatile top. I would have brought this into my everyday wardrobe, it’s not just for working out!
Second Wind 2.0 Pant – Cost to keep: $76
Composition: 100% Polyester
I knew these pants weren’t for me the second I pulled them out of the box. The material is overall pretty stiff and for some reason, they really remind me of baseball pants, especially with the back pockets and reflective stripe at the ankle.
The material is wind and water-resistant and of pretty good quality. The overall style just isn’t for me so these are going back.
3-Pack Performance Crew Socks by Richer-Poorer – Cost to keep $40
Composition: Poly / Cotton/ Spandex Blend.
The feel of these socks are very nice and the patterns are pretty eye catching! All pairs have padded footbeds, mesh venting, and arch support. The quality on all pairs is quite high but the patterns are just a little too “loud” for my liking, so these are going back to Wantable.
Verdict: I really enjoyed my first experience with Wantable Men’s Fitness box! The quality of the garments was high and their pricing was fair for the most part. Their customer support is also very friendly and quick with a response. I look forward to seeing what’s in store for next month’s shipment!
