Bogeybox Golf Club Review
I love golf. I'm absolutely the kind of person who's going to give any monthly golf membership a try, even if only to see what kind of fun toys I'll get. At this point in my life, though, I realize that getting toys isn't exactly going to help me look my best. That's why I've turned to Bogeybox for assistance.
I've heard a lot of good things about Bogeybox, and I know a few people who have used the service. The clothes they get look great, so I figured it was worth a try. Honestly, I'm happy that I've made the choice.
Buying clothing online can feel a little weird, though, and it's important to know what you're getting into. Instead of just reading the sales copy, it's a good idea to know how the box works and what's inside. With a little research, you can figure out if Bogeybox is right for you.
What is It?
Bogeybox is a subscription box that focuses mostly on golf club clothing. It's the kind of box you get when you're trying to look like you belong on tour, or at least at your local country club. This isn't a box for golf gadgets or items to improve your swing - it's definitely one that focuses very much on fashion.
It's also good to note that this box really focuses on golf club apparel that is right for individual members. It's much more customized than your average subscription service, more of a personal dressing service than a true blind box. There might be some random elements here, but they're mostly there to help spruce up your wardrobe.
What's in the Box?
Bogeybox is pretty unique in the world of subscription box services. While there are a few different golf clothing services that will let you have some degree of control over what you get, none of them are quite as customizable as Bogeybox. You're not just getting the benefit of a company that knows the style - you're actually going to work with a real person to get clothing that's right for you.
It's hard to point towards exactly what you're going to get in a box, because it's all very customized. You'll start your process by taking a style quiz, which is going to come up with some basic information about your own tastes. As you can imagine, this means that no two boxes tend to be exactly the same.
This isn't too different from most style-based boxes, though. What really changes things up is that you can communicate with the company to talk about exactly what you want. If you just want shirts, you'll just get shirts in your box. If you just want pants, you'll just get pants. It's actually a pretty cool concept for this type of subscription service.
What's also nice about this service is that you can try on the items and send them back if they don't fit. If you've ever used a subscription service before, you know that there can be some differences between sizing from one company to another. If you get something and you don't like it, you can just exchange it for something that's a little more your speed.
It should also be noted that you're not expected to buy everything in each box. If you choose everything, that's great - but if you don't want to spend as much or you're not feeling the contents, you can send back the other items and move on to your next month's (or even next quarter's) subscription without any pushback from the company. It's a fairly consumer-friendly design that can help offset some of the pricing problems.
How Much Does it Cost?
This is probably one of the hardest subscription services to really peg in pricing because it's one that's definitely fairly variable depending on what you choose and what is in each month's box. As you might imagine, though, it isn't very cheap.
In a world where the average subscription tends to be under fifty dollars, Bogeybox definitely stands out. Simply put, the amount of money you are going to spend on a box depends on how many of the items you choose to keep from the box. If you choose to keep everything, you're going to end up paying more.
On average, it's safe to say that you're not going to walk away from this box paying less than seventy-five dollars, and that's only if you keep a single item. The good news is that there are discounts available and that the monthly 'stylist fee' of twenty dollars you pay the company does automatically cover that cost.
To be perfectly honest, this isn't a box for people who want to save money. It's a box for people who want to look good and embrace golf fashion. If you're not in that category, you can certainly find a better value elsewhere.
What's The Verdict
If you are concerned with fashion and you're looking for a personalized stylist, you can do much worse than this box. It's not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but you can definitely choose options that send you clothing bi-monthly or even once a quarter if you'd like to keep your overall costs down. Still, it's more expensive than the average service because it does its job much better.
Those who love golf fashion and want a personalized touch need this service. You're not going to get better clothing unless you have a personal stylist, and even then it's going to be close. Choose Bogeybox if you really want to look your best.
