I hate shopping.
And if you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that you’re with me here.
One of the main reasons that I hate shopping is that it’s just so inefficient. A lot of us are busy and just don’t have the time to go to the mall, browse, try a bunch of things on, do price comparisons, etc. It’s just... such a process.
And what I particularly hate shopping for are things that I need to buy over and over again. Grooming products, for example. :)
We’ve got things to do. Sights to see. People to meet. The world to change. We just don’t have time for shopping and keeping up-to-date with the latest fashion trends.
That being said, I wouldn’t mind looking dapper either - as long as it could be done quickly and efficiently.
I know that there are a bunch of you out there like me. Guys who are busy and just don’t have the time, patience, or interest to shop (or think about fashion and style) - but still want to look good.
Well, I'm going to help you out... I’ve compiled a list of 37 “Doorstep Dapperness” businesses that can help you be, look, and feel dapper on an on-going basis without leaving your home.
*** Read all the way to the bottom to find out how you can download a free copy of "Doorstep Dapperness: 37 Ways to Get Dapperness Regularly Delivered to Your Door." ***
Some of them are subscription businesses; others offer auto-replenishment. Some of them handpick your products; others allow you to select your own. Some are monthly; others allow you to choose your own frequency of delivery.
You’ve probably heard of some of them. Dollar Shave Club and Trunk Club, for example, are pretty well-known at this point. But there a bunch of emerging brands that are coming up that might offer exactly what you’re looking for.
So without further ado... let's jump into it.
Mandatory... Grooming & Hygiene
Let’s start with basic hygiene. To be dapper, yes, you need to have some nice clothes - but if your hygiene is terrible, you won’t be at peak dapperness. At all. (A nicely dressed guy with bad breath? Not gonna work, fellas.)
Remember the good ol’ days when you had to go to the store to get your grooming products? Well… maybe you still do that now. I know... it’s a habit.
But habits can change. And you seriously may not have to make any more trips to Costco, Target, CVS or your local store for your grooming products with these companies making it easy for you. Think about all that time you’ll save!
