revive-september-2016-card-2

These little cards were included in my package this month. The one on top has Revive’s social media information, and the one on the bottom described the different packages they have available.

revive-sep-invoice-edit

This is the invoice that was included in my package this month, listing the items we chose. We selected two outfits for my husband and two for myself this month.

revive-september-2016-brown-outfit

Abercrombie & Fitch Button-Down Top – Individual Item Cost $7.49 at Revive Depot
Average retail value for A&F Men’s Button-Down Tops – about $30

Carhartt Jeans – Individual Item Cost $9.99 at Revive Depot
Average retail value of Carhartt Jeans new – about $40

This shirt is excellent! My husband loves it! It looks great, it’s soft, and it’s in perfect condition. The jeans, on the other hand, were a miss. I’m not sure if you can tell from the picture above, but…

revive-september-2016-brown-pants

…they’re too short. These are excellent, super sturdy work jeans, and they would have been a huge win for us. Unfortunately, Revive Depot does not put the length of men’s pants in their listings. This was a bit of a problem for us.

revive-september-2016-blue-outfit

Banana Republic Button-Down Top – Individual Item Cost $8.49 at Revive Depot
Average retail value for Banana Republic Men’s Button-Up Shirts – about $70

Levi’s Jeans – Individual Item Cost $9.99 at Revive Depot
Average retail value of Levi’s Men’s Jeans – about $70

This shirt is great, although my husband preferred the one above. I love the color and the textured pattern! It fit well and was in fantastic condition. The jeans, however…

revive-sep-jeans

We had the same problem with these jeans as we had with the previous pair. They were too short, and the length wasn’t listed on Revive’s site. Otherwise these were in great condition. At least with these jeans they could be converted into jorts (jean shorts), haha.

revive-sep-tee

LL Bean Tee – Individual Item Cost $7.49 at Revive Depot
Average retail value for LL Bean Tees – about $22

This top was great and it fit fine. It was in good condition, but not like-new. To be honest, I had a bit of a disaster with my Revive experience this month, but it wasn’t all Revive’s fault by any means. I think the selection of items in my size was pretty slim to start with, and that was my biggest problem this month. I usually model everything I get these days, but the pants I wore with this top fit poorly, so I decided to just take pictures of the items on the form and table. I will totally wear this top, I’m just explaining why there’s no picture of me in it.

revive-september-2016-capris

Talbot’s Capris – Individual Item Cost $7.99 at Revive Depot
Average retail value for Talbot’s Capri Pants – about $70

These capris are super cute, but they did not fit at all and I’m not sure why. They are my size, and they were listed correctly by Revive, so I’m guessing that either they were washed in hot water and shrank, or they are an older pair of pants from when sizes were a little smaller. I have no idea, but it’s not Revive’s fault. This is just something that happens when you buy clothes online sometimes.

revive-sep-top

revive-sep-top-2

Keyhole Top by Susan Lawrence – Individual Item Cost $4.49 at Revive Depot
Average retail value for Susan Lawrence Tops – I’m guessing about $30 as they are a Sears brand that seems to have gone defunct.

This top fits fine, but it looks terrible on me. If you’ve ever read one of my clothing reviews, you will notice I repeatedly talk about how I need an open neckline. A mock neck like this makes me look like I have no neck at all! I loved the pattern for fall, though, and I thought it would look great with a tan cardigan.

revive-september-2016-bandolino

Bandolino Pants – Individual Item Cost $7.99 at Revive Depot
Average retail value for Bandolino Pants – about $25

I love Bandolino pants; they were one of the first plus-size brands I found and loved. This pair fits, but not well. They’re just not very flattering. As I mentioned, I did model these outfits, but when I saw the pictures I kind of wanted to cry. Again, totally not Revive’s fault, it was just bad luck, I guess.

Verdict: The big picture, if I can step back and look at it for a moment, is that my husband got two great shirts, I got one great tee, and we got potentially two other wearable items all for $22 shipped. Everything we received was in great condition, and nothing smelled weird or anything like that. I think that Revive Clothing Depot should definitely list both waist and length for mens’ pants and jeans, and that’s my only real issue with our package this month. I wish they had a better selection in my size, but I don’t know how much control they have over that. Everything else seems to have been a mistake on my part or back luck. I am very curious to see how our experience is next month when we work with a stylist. I think it might turn out a lot better. Here’s hoping! Regardless, we still received a lot of clothing at a really incredible value.

What do you think of Revive Clothing Depot? What did you get this month?

Revive has built its brand on a simple centralized theme, quality clothes at an unbeatable price. We've partnered with several of the largest suppliers of gently used clothes across the country so that we can offer the selection and quality our customers expect.

Is anyone else having problems locating the site? I typed in reviveclothingdepot.com like I always do & the site doesn’t exist right now. I know they were going to do maintenance on Sunday, but it’s not even showing that the site is down or being worked on. Should I be worried? It says, “site cannot be found” on my computer. I just paid for this coming months subscription too.

JessicaG

The site address is just revivedepot.com, not Revive clothing depot. Hope that helps 🙂

Lexie

You’re right. I typed it in wrong but have the link on my computer and I just tried the link above on this site, and the page is still not found. I’ve tried both my laptop and my iphone. That is so weird that no one else is having problems.

Punkykiki

I just tried and it came up without a problem. Same old stuff though. Maybe they are just working on the site??? But I am like you, I don’t have that many days left to use this month’s credits. ?

Christina

You should try emailing and asking for an extension. Last month I paid for the stylist option but they cancelled it and no one ever contacted me about that. When I finally did contact them they let my credits rollover to the next month.

True

On Saturday when I visited the site a pop up stated that the site “will be down All day Sunday while we add 5000 New items Site will be back up at 8 am CST ” …….it is currently 3 hours later and the site is up but I see no new items in any department……… really disappointed. Very glad I did not spend $99 on an annual “early access” membership – requiring paid in full by the first of Septemberr …..Or reuptake my sub with another 6 months which they wanted full prepaid only for a crate subscription …..

JessicaG

I think what happened is that we all raved about how awesome this sub was and they blew up; so many people purchasing so quickly that they’re having issues keeping up. As far as I know, they rely on donated clothing, maybe some consignment?
Other than the slim pickings lately, I have been loving this sub! I got pairs of converse sneakers, adidas sneakers and Emu wool lined boots! All 3 look like they MIGHT have been worn once or twice. Out of the 40-50 or so items I’ve received over the last few months, only 4 didn’t fit right.
I really hope that they get more stuff on/updated. This is just the best value I have ever found for clothes! Ever since the big thrift store in my area shut down, there haven’t been any GOOD affordable places to buy stuff. My weight is constantly yo-yoing because of medication I’m on; there’s no way I could afford new stuff every time my sizes go up or down!

Nicole

I got one month. Found some stuff, but then it’s so much work to get them to update the points to place a monthly order. Whereas Cypress and Fifth you can just look after and select your clothes anytime after the 1st of the month. I did find some basics that was worth keeping the box I started, & I know it might be a pain to cancel. But I told them I wasn’t really satisfied liked I hoped I’d be & there wasn’t as much selection for me as I hoped. If I had other family then maybe. But for just me as a single, I’m not find anything I’m super jazzed. I’d rather roll with Cypress and get pieces or an outfit at a time that will work for a bit more money and know I like what I’m getting than have a hard time filling a box for $15 or $24 or whatever the rate is. I like the premise, but there’s just too much work on my end that I don’t have time and energy for right now.

Punkykiki

I’m not sure about the “holding back new stock” thing. What would be the benefit of that??? Sounds more like they are having cash flow problems or issues with suppliers. I subscribed in June or July, and things seemed much better then. New stock was added weekly and there was a better mix of brands, including higher end brands that I don’t really see a lot of now. I also read a review by someone who had purchased two designer handbags when they first appeared, and both bags were cheap fakes (to be fair, I think she said that neither bag was advertised as genuine, but still…..). I loved this sub when I first joined, but I am now doubtful I will keep it when it expires, especially with the higher price point.

Lexie

I agree that they used to be updating new items weekly, but now this past month, I haven’t seen any new updates except for accessories. I don’t know if they will only be updating once a month going forward or not. It’s a little frustrating b/c even though I love the site and the potential they have, many things were different when I first signed up. Now, I am locked into a 6 month sub. and the inventory is not updated as frequently as before and the brands are not the same. They may be just having “growth” problems. I guess that only time will tell….

Tia Brohas

I completely agree on the length not being listed for pants. I have ordered a couple pairs of pants and now know how long they must look on the manikin for them to work for both my husband and I. I had a few misses but now I have it down. Although, it shouldn’t be this difficult so I hope they fix this in the future. I actually have two subscriptions I get the 15 item one at the beginning of the month and the 25 item a couple weeks later. I shop for my entire family and I don’t have any issue finding items to get each month. Although, I do consider myself a bit of a pro when it comes to their website. haha I admit and agree with everyone else comments about it being hard to navigate/search but I figured it out and can find things pretty easily. I hope they update their website but honestly for the price I pay for the items I’m receiving I’m okay with dealing with it. Lastly, I find new items on the site weekly; that’s how often I search it. If you can’t seem to find anything new I recommend using the search bar and enter in a brand you like “Brand women size” example: “Croft women small”. Hope that helps!

Jackie

I did the stylist option two months in a row and loved it, but just got a notification last week that they no longer have a stylist option. Customer service was kind enough to call and explain and tried to persuade me to stay, but it wasn’t worth it for me. The website is difficult for me to navigate and the stylist option took the work out. Customer service was so nice though and let me cancel at a discounted rate.

Julie B

Too bad about the fit issues. I have been obsessed with Thredup which has great deals on women and children used clothing. I have been very happy with my purchases and it’s as much fun as thrifting in person.

Nicole

I got a great pair of sweat/lounge pants from thredup once. I’ll have to revisit them.

Ks

I’ve received 4 or 5 boxes so far. I subscribed to the 4-pack and simply get items I need or items I want to try but would be too risky to pay full price for.

I am annoyed with sizes not being listed. I got 1 shirt that was too small. However, items are easily donated and I try not to get anything too dependent on specific measurements.

BONNY ADAMS

I sub to the crate. I find it really hard to find new items. If I’m lucky enough to find new items, they are not in any of our sizes. I enjoy the items that I have received, but I would really like to see the page update new items frequently. Maybe I’m just too new at this..or something.

Lexi

I totally agree with you! I have actually emailed them about not having an update of their women’s clothing in quite a long time… they were kind of rude and said that they had updated the site and posted 6,000 new items (they were all accessories). There haven’t been new women’s clothing in a loonnngggg time (IMHO). I loved this sub the first few months, now I am struggling to find anything I would like/wear/try. Here’s to hoping they update and add more things soon!

Lexi

I am really fed up with this sub. STILL nothing new in Women’s clothing. I check everyday for new items. If you sort by “new to old” in Women’s All everything has been the same for over a month. I cannot wait until my sub is up next month. I had such high hopes! And yes, I know the price is great but there truly isn’t anything I want/can use at the moment. Sigh.

BONNY ADAMS

They definitely have not added much women’s clothing , if any. I signed up for a monthly sub, but noticed people talking about how it is actually a six month commitment, even with a month to month sub. I wouldn’t be so disappointed if they updated their items. I have 4 people that I can choose items for, and I’m still seeing the same items. Honestly, I think their subscribers should get email updates when new items are added. I’ve wasted so much time searching for new items, just to realize that it’s the same old stuff. My credits renew the 13th or 14th. In one months time everything was the same, except for the accessories being added.

Rachelle

Signed up for 4-pack. Total cost for 6 months with msa discount was $64 + $5/month shipping after this first month. So for a total of $89 I’ll get 24 items. Definitely worth it to me. Thank you MSA.

Barbie

Loos like they increased the cost of the revive Pakistan? Your note says 9.99/month, but the card they sent states 14.99?

Heather B

I got super excited about this and immediately went to check it out. It’s an easy pass for me, for several reason (that are totally fixable, if you’re reading this RCD!)…
The first is their selection! I am a very average size (10) and I have been looking for casual dresses I can wear through the winter over leggings. There were about 6 in my size. I thought that was strange, but telling. They don’t have a wide selection. Ok.
Second, it will only let you put in one size search filter at a time, which is frustrating. Most people can usually fit into several sizes and it would be nice to search them all at once, rather than search 2T, then go back and look at all the 3T.
Same issue with narrowing down choices. Would be great to be able to search through every option that works. As it stands now, you have to look through Capris only, then search through Skinny. An option to pick all options that work at once makes more sense.
After spending 20 minutes on their site, I was underwhelmed. Will keep an eye on this one, though!

Teresa

Just a heads up, I got a note that said they have been holding stock and are doing a HUGE restock(like 5,000 items) in a couple weeks. You have a month to use your credits and not sure how long this promo is going but you do not have to spend your credits right then, just within 30days. Anyway, I got the note after I had used my credits for the month(of course) so I am SOL till after the 1st(I get my credits on the 1st). Either way, I thought I would give you all a heads up because yes the pickings are a little slim now but pretty soon they are going to have a big selection.

Also, to Anna…. My son is also tall(6’1″) so what I do is see where the pants fall oon the maniquin. I look to have the pant leg end at the heel on it, so far I have gotten 32 and 34 for length oh and a SuperMan lounge pant he has to roll up as an XL tall, LOL(he likes roomy pants 6’1″ and 200lbs, can do a large but he likes them more roomy). So maybe watch the back of the pant leg and how it falls on the maniquin on future orders?

Next month is my last month of the Crate, may do a 6mo of the 4-8pc if I continue to loose weight so I can update my wardrobe cheaply as I loose weight…

Lisa

I was going to sign up, but it says a 6 month subscription is required!? No thanks! I was excited to try them out but am definitely not willing to pay for 6 months

Teresa

That’s how I feel about to as well. To much commitment to something unproven.

magoosmom

I’m going to send them a note about not listing length on the men’s jeans. There’s no way I could order jeans for my long-legged son without knowing the length. Seems odd not to include it.

The new pricing is on that card up there and on the website. It’s now $14.99 for 4 items, $24.99 for 8 and so on. I wish it was still the introductory pricing though! I wanted to try them out this month but I’m going to pass. There isn’t much in my size (2X) and I’m not seeing enough of my son’s sizes to make it worth trying at that price point. Although there is that 20% off and free shipping… hmmm.

BONNY ADAMS

I will be unsubsidized when my 6 months is up. I get the crate, so I’m sure it will cost way too much. It is way too hard to find new items every month. I read above..they are restocking, and that they were holding back on stock…With my credits not loading until the 24th, I’ll be in the same boat…no new items to pick from.

BONNY ADAMS

I sub to the crate. I find it really hard to find new items. If I’m lucky enough to find new items, they are not in any of our sizes. I enjoy the items that I have received, but I would really like to see the page update new items frequently. Maybe I’m just too new at this..or something.

Tracy

I thought they did away with the stylist program? Is it back now? And I agree that it would be nice if they listed the length on the mens pants. I saw a lot of nice pants in my hubby’s size, but didn’t order them b/c it’s a little bit of a gamble. 🙂

Lola EB

So you’re the one who got the keyhole top. I had it on my wishlist waiting for my credits so I could buy it and then it was gone. It looks pretty. My biggest complaint about Revive is that they don’t list fabric content. I bought a skirt that looked flowing in the picture and turned out to be leather and suede. Very beautiful but I don’t sew on leather and suede and it was too long. Also, it is hard to find an excellent selection of items that fit my style which is eclectic and slightly wacky but their accessories shop is up and I’m excited about that. The fit has been good and the quality of items excellent even though they say good. I got a pair of shoes last time that looked brand new but listed as good and these are $150 or more retail leather pumps. I’ve been pleased so far even though it is a bit hard to find things to fit my style.
