My husband is trying to find vegan-friendly, hassle-free work clothes--basically well fitting dark jeans and short sleeved button up shirts (not polo shirts). The other thing is he is a tall dude with a long torso, arms, and thick neck (normal clothes don't fit well) who hates clothes shopping and is basically always working.

We thought a clothing mail order service like Trunk Club would be perfect, but so far it has been a huge flop--they didn't listen to what he wanted at all and kept sending tons of expensive wool/cashmere/leather stuff and long sleeved shirts, which...we live in the SF Bay and he runs hot. He really doesn't need warm clothing when it's 65 degrees out and besides, long sleeved is a little too formal for his workplace.

Has anyone had luck with these clothing services? Any that are vegan-friendly and less geared toward preppy hipsters?

I never knew such things existed. You know what I do, mail order a bunch of stuff, have my husband try it on at home and return to a local store (Eddie Bauer, Macys, etc). That way he doesn't have to go to a mall and I can search online for his size (slim frame which apparently we joke that all the tiny guys got to the store before him).
