Stitch Fix for Men Clothing Box Review – August 2018
In addition to women’s styling, Stitch Fix also has 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.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
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)

August 2018 Stitch Fix Men’s Style Service Review
My first shipment featured 5 items including shoes, a few button-ups, a t-shirt hoodie, and jeans.
You’ll get this little packet in your shipment. Inside, you’ll find all of the details on how to proceed with your fix – from trying items to buying an item to returning an item.
Stitch Fix also provides a little style board for some items. These include idea on styling it with other items, whether or not they’re in your current box or not.
You’ll get this sheet – here you’ll see the cost to keep the individual items in your box.
And finally, it includes a return shipment bag for your returns.
OK – on to the clothes!
Toms Payton Canvas Lace Up Sneakers – Cost To Keep $60
The first item that drew me in was a Stitch Fix show tote – inside, I found a pair of Toms sneakers.
I’ve never tried Toms sneakers before – so these were a first for me, and I was so happy to get them in a nice gray canvas color.
These shoes are made to be worn with, or without, laces (there is an elastic band if you choose to go without laces).
I was really surprised by how much I liked these shoes! Gray tends to be my preferred shoe color since it goes well with most of my clothing – but beyond that, the shows are lightweight and VERY comfortable, especially the sole of the shoe. As soon as I put these on, I knew I’d keep them and probably buy more Toms sneakers in the future.
Alternative Apparel Marathon Hooded Pullover – Cost To Keep $40
If there’s one clothing item that I absolutely love as the weather starts to cool down, it’s a comfortable t-shirt hoodie.
The hoodie comes in my favorite color, green, and was just so comfortable – like the shoes, it was an instant keep!
It’s soft and thin – like a high-quality t-shirt.
Of course, a hoodie has to have a hood! I am totally ready for the weather to cool down.
DL1961 Avery Modern Straight Jeans – Cost To Keep $125
I received a pair of pants in my first shipment, too – a pair of straight jeans from DL1961.
Design-wise, there’s nothing too special about the jeans – but most importantly, they are comfortable and have a tad bit of stretch to them (which I prefer). You’ll enter your waistline and length, so you’ll be getting pants to your exact size without the need to alter them.
Hawker Rye Essential Wash Long Sleeve Shirt – Cost To Keep $58
The last two item both came from Hawker Rye. The first is a light gray/blue button-up plaid shirt.
Again, heading into cooler weather, I always want/need more long-sleeve shirt – and I love me some plaid/flannel designs!
This is a bit dressier than I am typically drawn to – but I don’t have a lot of shirts like this and the fit felt really good – so I decided to keep this one as well.
Hawker Rye Essential Wash Stretch Shirt – Cost To Keep $64
The one item that wasn’t really up my alley was this final shirt from Hawker Rye.
While I like the basic design, I’m not quite sure that I can pull off the pastel shirt look.
The design is pretty much identical to the previous shirt. Front breast pocket and the same type of collar.
Verdict: I actually ended up keep every item in the box – my total cost was lower after keeping the 5th item to trigger the 25% discount when keeping your entire fix ( I saved $86.75 with the 25% discount versus the shirt cost of $64) – so that’s awesome! I liked my first fix – I’m not someone who likes shopping or needs to wear high-end brands, so I think this subscription could be hitting my sweet spot. One fix down, and I’m happy!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Stitch Fix curates its boxes based on each individual’s preferences as well as what’s available.
Value Breakdown: You’ll pay a $20 styling fee with free shipping and returns – Just pay for the items you keep! The total retail value of the items inside my shipment today is $347, which is an average of $69.40 per item – plus, you’ll save 25% when you keep all of the items in your delivery.
