FlyGuy Threads Subscription Box Review – October 2015
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
Ships to: US only
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.
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!
