FlyGuy Threads Subscription Box Review – October 2015

FlyGuy Threads Subscription Box Review October 2015 - box

Flyguy Threads is a subscription service that delivers mens’ clothing on a monthly basis. Unlike some subscription services in which you can opt out of a given month, Flyguy Threads does not send a monthly package unless you specifically opt in for that month. My husband got one package from Flyguy Threads about a year ago, and he was very happy with what he received, so we were both very happy to have the opportunity to try them out again!

Flyguy Threads kindly sent us this package to review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review packages.)

The Subscription: Flyguy Threads

The Cost: $60 + $7 shipping = $67

The Products: 2-3 items of mens’ clothing valued at $110 or higher

Good to Know: When I created this account for my husband, I filled out a lengthy fit and style profile specific to his tastes (and mine!). Items will very from subscriber to subscriber.

FlyGuy Threads Subscription Box Review October 2015 - button-down

John Varvatos Plaid Button Down – Value $118

This shirt is super soft! I’ve never felt a button-down so soft! I was able to find this shirt on Bloomingdale’s website, but it said it was no longer available. I believe the retail value to be correct, though, based on similar shirts from the same designer.

Armani Exchange Button Henley Tee – Value $39.50

This is another super soft shirt! Both of these shirts fit my husband very well, too. I noticed that this shirt is also out of stock.

Gap Boxers – Value $12.95

The bonus item for my husband this month is this classic pair of boxers from The Gap. These will always come in handy. I couldn’t find these on their current website selection. I’m noticing a trend here…

The Verdict: My husband was perfectly happy and impressed with his selection of items this month, so overall, Flyguy Threads is a win for him. His only complaint was that we specifically said in his profile that he likes a lot of color in his wardrobe, and there’s not much color here (except some in the shorts.) This package had a value of $181.85, which is incredible for $67! However, based on the age of these items, I imagine that FGT manages to get them at a deep discount. As all of these pieces are classic, I’m okay with that. Moreover, I think most men, particularly the many who hate shopping for clothing, would appreciate a styling service such as this. I also think most men don’t know or care what season or year (or decade?) their clothing is from, so long as it fits well and looks nice on them. I think Flyguy Threads is a terrific service for men who don’t enjoy clothes shopping!

  1. Great selection of items but seems like yet another sub that banks of brand recognition so they can justify sending out overpriced items. I’ll pass.

  2. This review and the comments totally crack me up!

  3. when you signed up, did they ask for inseam and waist size? My hubby is short (5’5″) with a 29″ inseam, so that becomes really important. As far as style, I don’t think he even cares what millennium his clothes are from. — when i met him in 1985, he was still carrying around his draft card (he was in the last draft, but fortunately had a really high number so was never called).

  4. What awesome selections! The John Varvatos shirt is particularly impressive, even if it is from a season or two ago.

    No, most men don’t care what decade their clothes are from. A few years ago, I started cleaning out and replacing items in my husband’s closet. He had several pairs of pleated, cuffed, tapered leg pants. Yes, they were pleated, cuffed and tapered ALL AT THE SAME TIME. He told me that people used to compliment him on his clothes, in the 90s!
