Stitch Fix for Men Clothing Box Review – October 2017
In addition to women’s styling, Stitch Fix recently added a men’s clothing subscription box service that is focused around vamping up the style in your everyday wardrobe. When signing up, you take a pretty in-depth survey so your stylist gets a handle on what you’re looking for. Questions range from your occupation, your personal style, sizing, pricing preference, and so on. You can even send them your Instagram or Facebook page so they can get an even more personal feel for who you are.
After you pick the date of when you’d like to receive your fix, the stylist handpicks 5 items and sends you your shipment. The fee for this service is $20, and that includes free shipping and free returns. And if you keep any of the items they send you, you get to deduct the $20 fee from the total. (If you keep all five items, you also get a 25% discount!)
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Stitch Fix
The Cost: $20 styling fee (pay for whatever items you keep minus the $20 credit)
The Products: 5 clothing and accessory items selected for you based on your Style Profile.
Ships to: U.S. only
Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
This is my detailed invoice noting the products that are in my box, the sizing, and cost of each item. Total cost to keep all five items, minus the $20 styling fee and 25% discount would cost: $235.75 – Average cost per piece is $47.15 and a total discount of $85.25.
The box also included some cards with styling suggestions along with a little note from my stylist on how they would pair each piece. I really enjoy these cards as they give me some different ideas on what to wear with!
For anything you plan on returning, Stitch Fix instructs you to complete a checkout process online so they know what to expect coming back, and it also allows you to provide feedback about what you did and did not like about the items. They include a USPS pre-paid mailing bag in your box too. You just pack up the items you don’t want and drop the bag off at your post office.
Let’s take a look at what inside!
Timber Printed Chambray Shirt by Free Nature – Cost to keep: $48
I’m very drawn to printed button up shirts, and this print is definitely doing it for me! The color combo here is perfect for the fall month’s ahead and I can see myself dressing this up with khakis, or dressing down like I did here with jeans and boots.
What also makes this shirt more unique is the stitching on the back of shirt – I’ve never seen something like this on a men’s shirt before and I like the extra detail. This top is a total winner for me and the cost of $48 is a steal, especially for the high-quality material and construction.
Baseline Triblend Zip Hoodie by Threads 4 Thought – Cost to keep: $50
This hoodie is so soft and comfortable and is perfect for either lounging around (which I’m always looking for!) or running errands. I also really like and respect the brand, Threads 4 Thought; they use sustainable and environmentally friendly materials to produce their clothing and that is something that’s pretty important to me. I do have something similar to this already in my closet, so this is going back, but overall, I do really like this and would recommend due to the versatility of color and the high quality, soft material.
Anchor Stretch Jersey One-Pocket Tee by Tailor Vintage – Cost to keep: $29
I was instantly drawn to the color of this top; it’s so unique and will work great for all seasons of the year – I have nothing like this color in my current wardrobe, so this is a big bonus. The jersey material of the top is SO soft and VERY comfortable, so this is a total win. I also appreciate that this tee, even being so basic, can be dressed up or down – The cost of $29 is a total steal.
I also really like the contrasting material on the pocket, it’s quite structured and makes the shirt more unique and special – another win in this fix!
Chopper Hybrid Jean by Ezekiel – Cost to keep: $69
I haven’t had great luck with pants from Stitch Fix in the past, but they just made it up by sending me this great pair of jeans! The material is extremely soft and the fit is spot on – they aren’t too loose or tight, and the ankles are perfectly tapered. I also love the versatile khaki color; these can be either dressed up or down but either way, I’ll be comfortable! The cost of the pants is very in line with the quality and I couldn’t be happier with these!
Maverick Nylon Bomber Jacket by 7 Diamonds – Cost to keep: $145
I specifically asked to receive a jacket in this fix and my stylist sent me this high-quality navy bomber. The color is very rich and versatile, and the construction of the whole garment is extremely high, but so is the price in my opinion. I do have something very similar that isn’t nearly as nice of quality but gets the job done and keeps me on trend. Saying this, I’ll be sending back, but will ask for maybe a moto jacket, or something more unique in my next Fix.
Verdict: I enjoyed quite a few pieces in this month’s shipment and am keeping 3 of the styles! I feel like my stylist has done an extremely great job of understanding who I am, and the types of pieces I’m looking for in this subscription service. All pieces, as usual, were of high quality and in line with their retails values for the most part. I’ll be sure to be specific on what I want in my next fix, my stylist is continuing to send all types of pieces I ask for.
