Stitch Fix for Men Clothing Subscription Box Review – June 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. The total cost for me to keep all five items, minus the $20 styling fee and 25% discount would be $176.25. The average cost per piece is $35.20, and the total discount is $58.75.
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 kinds of pieces go well together!
For anything you plan on returning, Stitch Fix instructs you to complete a checkout process online, which lets them know what to expect coming back and allows you to provide feedback about what you did and did not like about the items. They include a USPS prepaid 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’s inside the box!
Essential Wash Short Sleeve Shirt by Hawker Rye – Cost to Keep $48
I really enjoy the subtle color combo of this button up, and the fit is spot on! The price and quality are very comparable, especially for how versatile this top is. I plan on wearing this to a 4th of July picnic this weekend and to work the following week. This one is a keeper!
Long Sleeve Button Down Shirt by Hawker Rye – Cost to Keep $48
I really enjoy a lot of different things about this button up. The subtle 3-color plaid is just the right amount of “busy” and the quality of the 100% cotton material is structured but still soft at the same time. I paired it here casually with jeans, but this top can definitely be dressed up as well! I do have something similar in my closet already, so this is going back, but I definitely give this 5 stars!
Tristan Court Short by Katin – Cost to Keep $53
The quality and color of these shorts are really great, but the length just doesn’t work for me. I prefer my shorts to be 2-3 inches above my knee, so these are just a little long for my liking. I’ll be sure to mention this length preference to my stylist for next month, as I’m in the market for some new summer shorts, especially in this great gray color that can pretty much go with anything!
Essential Wash Long Sleeve Shirt by Hawker Rye – Cost to Keep $58
I knew this button up wouldn’t be for me the second I laid eyes on the busy color combo. I tend to lean towards softer, less busy colors, and this just isn’t it. On a positive note about the top, the quality is quite high, and the fit felt great everywhere from the neck to the waist.
Leon Garment Dyed Pocket Tee by Alesbury – Cost to Keep $28
This basic pocket tee is great! The blue rich color is quite nice and can be paired easily with any dark or light bottom and dressed up or down. The high quality, 100% cotton material is lightweight and breathable and fits the bill for $28. I’m pretty excited to have this one for the summer months ahead.
I enjoyed quite a few pieces in this month’s shipment and am keeping two of the tops! I keep having fit issues with bottoms from Stitch Fix, so I’ll be sure to mention my concerns and hopefully, receive some winners in next month’s fix!
