The Mr. Collection March 2019 Review

 This month, John’s stylist included 2 button down shirts, a jacket, and a pair of pants. Let’s see how he wore them!

The info card includes a handwritten note from Annie, John’s stylist this month, and some information about how the subscription works. There is also an invoice that shows the member price for each item in case he wanted to purchase anything.

Civil Society Zip Bomber, L – Retail Value $95, Member Price $76

John really liked this bomber jacket when he was pulling it out of his pack. The fabric (65% cotton/35% poly) is comfortably thick with a smooth-textured olive exterior and fuzzy navy interior. He isn’t a fan of the fit though. Unzipped, it looks ok, but it looks awkwardly long and tight when he zips it up. The back zippers are a bit weird too; I’m not sure what they are for.

Original Penguin Heritage Fit Dress Shirt, 15.5, 32/33 – Retail Value $79.50, Member Price $63.60

I love when John wears shirts in blue tones and I’m pretty sure our stylist knows that. The tiny pattern is full of pretty colors that look light blue from afar. The fabric is smooth and has a nice thickness and the details – contrasting neck and button panels – make this stylish shit stand out. Unfortunately, it is way too tight for John and he couldn’t get it on without fear of ripping it. I’m not super familiar with men’s shirt sizing, but I think the problem may be that it’s a size too small and slim fit.

The Normal Brand Plaid Shirt, L – Retail Value $78, Member Price $62.40

This shirt looks great on John! The cotton fabric is smooth and soft and, “not too crisp,” as John says. He likes the navy and orange windowpane plaid pattern and the details like the contrasting collar and bear tag. As he was trying it on, he noticed that there was a hole at the cuff and stains on the cuff and pocket. This is the first time we’ve experienced damage or stains on any of the items he’s received. I think this one may have missed its cleaning after the last subscriber.

Ben Sherman Pants, 34/32 – Retail Value $79, Member Price $63.20

I appreciate when our stylist included bottoms in John’s pack, but this pair just didn’t do it for him. The mushroom-grey shade does work well with a lot of colors but it tends to look a bit bland. The quality of these is nice though and I think if he had received a shade darker or lighter, he would have liked them more. The biggest issue is that they are too long and not the right style to support a cuff.

About Returns:

Each pack includes a pre-paid return envelope. When you are done with your pieces, just pop them in here and drop it off at the post office. The Mr. Collection will process your return and you’ll be ready to go for your next pack. (If you are purchasing anything, just leave them out of your return package.)

A note about cleaning: You don’t have to clean the pieces before sending them back. The Mr. Collection has everything cleaned once the pieces are returned. 

The Verdict: John didn’t have great luck with his pack from The Mr. Collection this month. He wasn’t able to wear his items out either because of either fit or style issues. And, the only item he liked had some damage and was soiled. Though John just returned the items this month, he could have reached out to customer service for help. They have always been wonderful when we’ve had questions or concerns. This pack had a retail value of $331.50, and for a cost of $69 with free shipping, I think it is a great way for John to try nicer brands that he might not otherwise. The personal note from the stylist is something John really likes since they often give him styling tips for the included items.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? The Mr. Collection picks clothing for you based on your style preferences so your pack will be different than John’s. Sign up and see what they choose for you!

Value Breakdown: Since this is a clothing rental service, the value really comes from being able to change up and try new, styled looks every month. Since there is no way John would spend this amount to buy clothes at this retail value for himself, it’s great for him to be able to wear high-end clothing for a flat rate. There is always the option to buy an item for a discounted price if you love it. Basically here is what he paid to rent each item for the month (based on retail price):

  • Civil Society Bomber – $19.77
  • Original Penguin Shirt – $16.55
  • The Normal Brand Shirt – $16.24
  • Ben Sherman Pants – $16.44

  1. I was interested in a men’s clothing rental service but this one is a hard pass. Way too expensive and I’d have been upset to receive four items that proved unwearable due to either bad sizing, poor quality, lack of cleanliness or style incompatibility.

    The state of that plaid shirt alone is disgraceful and speaks to larger issues with this service.

  2. Other than living for the typo above (or maybe not lol) I was wondering about the pants.
    It looks like there a distinct line on the backside on them that is quite a bit lighter. Is that a fold mark or is this damaged/ showing signs of wear as well?
    Also, I’m feeling a bit awkward in even asking this because my above mentioned husband saw me zooming in on the line in the picture and asked me why I was zooming in on your husband’s butt… 🙄🙄🙄

  3. Oh nooooo. That cuff looks like someone wiped their nose on it! Ewwww.

    • This was definitely missed by our quality control team, and shouldn’t have been. We are very sorry about this mistake!

  4. I think the back zippers on the jacket are because it is longer so a guy can get his wallet or phone? Maybe?

    As for the shape of the dirty shirt with the hole…..that is the exact reason I have been too afraid to try clothing rentals! Total fear of the cooties from the previous person lol, irrational I know as it is probably a 1 in a million issue. But I an too much of a…. wash my hands after touching a door handle…. let alone wearing someone else’s dirty laundry.

  5. I think you meant “stylish knit,” rather than – what you said! No?

    • LOL! i had to scroll through to see that part, after reading your comment. I think she did mean knit. hahahaha tho!

      • Or it could have been, “stylish shirt!” Lol!

        • Oh yeah! that too. I’m still laughing! Lololol. She was just into it!

          • Omgoodness! LOL! That’s fabulous.

      • Ha! It flows so well!

    • Oof I’m freaking rolling. I literally laughed otr loud to the point my husband asked me what I was reading. He normally rolls his eyes at me for reading through the reviews and comments, but I read that one to him and he’s rolling too. He said it sounded like something I would have said on purpose lol.
      Made my day!
