COMN is a community-driven app that lets you share your clothes and their stories. This way you will be able to wear new items and experiment with different styles whilst doing the planet and your wallet a favour.
Upload your wardrobe onto the app, build a community of friends, create one common closet and swap again and again.
Here to make the world fall back in love with our clothes!
As of today, COMN can be used for free. So the perfect moment to try it out is... now!
Later this year, COMN will share its pricing model. We can only say: the more clothes you share (or “clothing stories you create”) the cheaper it will be. Because that’s the kind of world we wish to see. Stay tuned to figure out!
YES! COMN is about swapping temporarily by default. The clothes will be returned to the owner at the moment both parties have agreed upon.
There is one exception: when the owner indicated the item is a ‘giveaway’ item, then the item can be kept ‘forever’ or as long as you wish
You can borrow the item for as long as both parties have agreed upon when organizing the swap. If you want to extend the borrow period of the item, make sure to contact the lender through the chat function. would like to borrow the item for longer, ask the lender via the chat function in the app. Via the chat you can stay in touch with the owner about when it would be a good moment to meet up again to return the item
Clothes getting damaged is something we want to prevent at all cost. Experience has shown that our users are extra careful when wearing an item that is not their own. Besides, we included the possibility to include wash instructions for every item to minimize the number of items not surviving the washing machine/dryer.
Still an unfortunate event like a borrowed item getting damaged can arise.
COMN is a community-based app that will mostly be about friends swapping with friends, as long as this assumption holds we expect friends to find a fair solution to the damaged item together. Possible solutions could be that the borrower
Our advice is to agree upon a solution for the possibility of loss or damage beforehand with the person you share clothes with. Each swap is recorded in the app with a chat between the lender and borrower where the agreement can be set.
In case you don't manage to find a solution together, we would like you to contact us at [email protected] We will get in contact with the borrower, and do our utmost to reach a favourable agreement. We are currently developing a mechanism to better secure your swaps and hope to release this as soon as possible so that everyone in our COMNunity has a good experience using COMN.
Details about when and where to swap the clothing item can be discussed in the chat box that is opened when a swap request is sent. If you need to change the date and time for whatever reason you must notify the lender/ borrower asap by messaging them via the chat function.
We would love for COMN to become a reason for people to meet up in real-life to swap clothes. The more meetups initiated and (new) people connected the better! In addition, we would not want to contribute to any other vans driving around delivering packages. Therefore, we will not yet offer delivery/pickup services. However, we do not exclude not offering it in the future when we have found a more sustainable solution to it.
YES! when uploading a new item you can decide to not put it on your public profile. This way only you will see it in your closet (on your profile). You can at any time edit an item in your closet to be shown on your public profile or to be made private.
YES! only the users you have accepted as your COMN friends can borrow your clothes. In addition, if your friend requests to borrow one of your items but you don’t feel like lending it out, you can always decide to not accept the swap request.
You as our COMNunity are the heartbeat of COMN. We would say the photos you take are our lungs hehe. We can’t enjoy the COMN life without some proper photos, the better they are the more enjoyable COMN becomes. Therefore, we have some tips and tricks from our style queens & kings to help you take great ones, without too much of a hassle.
Clothes only vs. Clothes on Person
Make it less of a hassle & more fun
For most people uploading the photos to the app is the least fun part, but it’s often less work and more fun than you expect! And be aware, COMN is not a resale platform, you are not trying to sell anything, and nobody is committing to buying anything. In the end, it is only about temporarily borrowing something, so if the borrower got the wrong impression of the item and won’t wear it, it is not the end of the world. However, investing some time in making/gathering great photos can help you in building your profile’s own identity and gain the attention from the COMNunity. Some tips on how to speed up the uploading process (and make it more fun):
