Very interesting idea! Thought about the same thing last time I travelled to Europe. I wonder why has nobody done this yet. What am I missing?

@anselm_k Agreed! Not quite sure either why it hasn't become reality yet. The only thing I can think of being an issue is the thought of having inventory for the items that need to be shipped. I think some VCs may not like the scalability of that.
@chrisallanli I see what you mean, but I am sure it is an inventory problem because many successful businesses such as Amazon run on inventories and shipments. I am thinking the problem might be the same Food deliveries startups face. It is way difficult to satisfy the spectrum of human taste whether in food or clothes. What is fashionable changes all too often and that is where I agree with you there could be an issue with scalability.

@anselm_k didn't even think about the wide variability of items, especially when it pertains to fashion and style, I think you're right on the money with that.
@chrisallanli No startups in their right mind want to be keeping up with the Kardashians :-P
