Q: Will I get to personalize what I what and don’t want?Asked by Gabriel B., May 2019
Thanks for the question! After purchase, you will be emailed a comprehensive preferences survey in which you can detail your size, style preferences, and more.
If you love vintage t-shirts, you'll be able to tell us and we'll be sure to send some. If, for example, you're allergic to wool or you live in too hot a place to ever wear a sweater, you can tell us and we wont send you any.
I hope this answers your question!...
Q: I’m 6’3”, 170 lbs, so finding vintage clothes that are long enough without being way too wide is really tough. How does this service do in matching the clothes in the boxes to the size needs of the customers?Asked by Adam Z., May 2019
We match customers via a comprehensive style survey delivered by email after subscription.
You're right that finding vintage clothing in tall sizes can be difficult. But because we acquire vintage clothing at scale and maintain a warehouse of vintage inventory, we're never had a subscriber we couldn't service. Dozens of our subscribers are 6'3" or taller.
Q: I helped my kids order a subscription to Comma Vintage for their dad for Father's Day. My husband got an email from CrateJoy to claim his gift. When will he get his "comprehensive preferences survey?" Is it sent to him by "Comma Vintage?" What do we tell him to expect next and when?Asked by Melissa M., June 2019
Surveys are sent to provided gift recipient email addresses immediately upon subscription. Because we use an automated system to do this, though, they do occasionally wind up in the spam folder.
I've double checked our system and resent that email to your gift recipient. Do reach out if there are further issues!
Have told all my friends, really enjoyed the first box.
Very neat idea my boyfriend didn't really know how to react at first and doesn't believe there are 3 more boxes coming for him so it will be a great surprise thank you so much
This was such a good experience! I'm a size S/M woman, and the box I received included a fur-lined vintage leather bomber jacket, and an amazing 'angry rainbow badger' shirt - both of which fit perfectly. Included was a note explaining the provenance of each item, and how it related to the questionnaire/preference survey I submitted and it was so spot on! Brilliant!
Mike is the man! I have absolutely loved both my boxes. Can't wait for my next one! Each box lines up with my style and interests perfectly. I love the clothes! (vintage and well made and fit well) and the random trinkets. I've received some old baseball card packages, comic books, a bowtie, shoelaces and much more. One the coolest parts is the handwritten letter from Mike himself - it's personal and super cool. Get this box!
What can I say? This guy gets it. I got my brother a subscription for Christmas this year, and he was not only so excited about the concept of this gift, but was completely blown away when he received his first box. Everything was perfectly in line with his style, fit to a T, and was everything he could have hoped for! I have also had the added pleasure of visiting the new Comma, Vintage headquarters and getting to shop a little there, and my husband walked away with two beautiful new coats, one with the tags still on it! Looking forward to hearing my brother rave about his next box!
I had heard about Comma Vintage and saw some of their boxes online, but wasn’t sure what to really expect. When I signed up, Mike emailed me a questionnaire that was pretty in depth. It asked about my sizes, sure, but it went further by asking about my style, taste in music, favorite locations, and other fun questions that made it feel like a truly customized experience. Within two weeks, I got an email letting me know my first box was on the way and a couple days later it arrived. When I opened the box, there was a nice letter explaining what was inside, why it was selected, and some of the history and provenance of the items. I received a poli shirt from the late 80s that is most likely an official Nasa issue commemorative of a shuttle launch, an old crew neck sweatshirt that says Boston Beach Club (I live in Boston), and a brand new made in the USA t shirt with unbelievable graphics. In addition, I got an unopened pack of baseball cards from the 80s. Seeing the moustaches people wore back then was incredible, and it even included a young Roger Clemens. To top it off, I mentioned in my survey that Italy was one of my favorite locations, and the box included two old post cards from the 70s that spoke about how beautiful Rome and Florence was. Honestly, my mind was blown. I can’t wait for the next Comma Vintage box. One...
Wow, I totally didn't know what to expect at first, but, WOW! Thank you so much! This is my first subscription and I was afraid if it'll be too hard to find something suitable for me as I can get kinda nit-picky about certain looks. I was even afraid if I was elaborating too much in my customer survey, but they really read through everything and paid extra close attention to what would work for me and what wouldn't. I received three items: a blue button-up, a hoodie and a wool tie. The blue button-up was exactly my style! In fact, I love it so much that I immediately wrote an email to Mike, the owner of Comma Vintage, to thank him personally before writing this review. I don't think I'll ever find something like this where I'm from. The design is simple, stripes, but it definitely stands out from my other striped clothes. It fits nicely as well and the material feels simply amazing! It's so light, perfect for my country's climate. I love how they wrote a personalized note to you, explaining the items in the box and why they chose them. It really shows how much attention to detail was spent on selecting the pieces. I just received my first box and I already can't wait for the next one, I always enjoy surprises and I was definitely surprised. Thank you, Comma Vintage!
I bought a subscription on impulse based on a Facebook ad and can say I have no regrets. My first box included a broken, 1960s era hand-winding watch -- that I love! I noted in my survey that I enjoy tinkering with watches. Mike obviously paid attention and delivered a fun box. I wear everything else he sent regularly. Really looking forward to my next shipment as I get the watch operational again.
I wear every Comma Vintage Shirt that comes in the mail, my favorite is the UCONN Mens 1999 championship shirt. Everything is so well thought out and I love learning more about the clothes I get. So good!
I really enjoy Comma Vintage. Having curated vintage menswear is a joy, I get really excited when a box arrives. It's really cool how the clothes are tailored to my specific needs and how there are always personalized little touches and extras which really make opening each box a joy! I still play the prince purple rain cassette I got in one of my boxes all the time!!! Plus the clothing has been great, one of my favorite jackets has come from a comma vintage box! I recommend this great fashion subscription to any fans of vintage clothes, sustainability in general, and people who are tired of the impersonal touch and service of cold mega fashion corporations who treat u like a brick in the wall consumer of their assembly line mass produced clothing product!!! Give comma a try!!
