Brian Spaly, CEO Of Trunk Club, Is On A Mission To Get Men To Dress Better

Frank Gruber

Do you like to go to mall and shop for clothing so you look good? If you are like most men, you probably do not enjoy shopping and might think it is kind of a drag. That said, looking good can help you feel good, which should ultimately help you perform better in any line of work … and entrepreneur Brian Spaly wants to help.

It's his mission as the CEO of Chicago-based fashion commerce startup Trunk Club to make it easier guys to dress well and feel good. Trunk Club is Brian's second startup; his first was online retailer Bonobos, which also was focused on men's fashion and apparel. With Trunk Club, Brian wants to build a better Nordstroms that literally sends you clothing options rather than having to go in search of them.

I got a chance to talk to Brian Spaly in Chicago a few weeks ago, and he shared the back story of how he got involved with Trunk Club and where he wants to take it. He also shared some advice for entrepreneurs. Watch the interview with Trunk Club CEO Brian Spaly.
