Bombfell — a clothes-subscription service which sends customers a new piece of clothing every month for $69/month — just raised seed money from a number of big names, including Great Oaks VC, Jeff Fluhr, 500 Startups, and SOS Ventures.
The founders include a pair of Harvard grads — including one who was former head of buiness development for Nickelodeon Games — who have led the company to six consecutive months of double-digit revenue growth. TechCrunch reports that as Bombfell tries to move towards corporate sustainability, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics co-founder Ken Landis and JamLegend co-founder Andrew Lee have joined the board of advisors. The company has also introduced new pricing tiers — $129/month for “more premium brands,” and $199 month for “high-quality brands and outerwear.”
Kind of makes you wonder what you’re getting with the $69/month plan — the company’s website only provides a “sample” of clothes they send out monthly. Judging solely by this sample page, the company’s clothes are of the casual button-down/Brooklyn slim jeans variety.
What about us preppy boys, Bombfell?
