Stitch Fix Kids Subscription Box Review – August 2018

Stitch Fix Kids is a new styling subscription service from Stitch Fix! After filling out a survey, a stylist will pick items based on your preferences. The fee for this service is $20, and that includes free shipping and free returns. If you keep any of the items they send you, you get to deduct the $20 fee from the total. (If you keep all items, you also get a 25% discount!)

Stitch Fix Kids August 2018 Review

In every Stitch Fix Kids box, they include a pre-paid shipping envelope for returns and information sheets.

Here’s the item list of the clothing they selected for my son, and their individual prices. The items total $194, but with my $20 styling fee applied, and the keep-everything 25% off discount, the total adds up to be only $125.50.

I thought it was cute that the information sheet had a maze on it for your kid, plus the inside flaps of the shipping box have some activities and ideas for how to play with the box, too!

The reverse of that card shows photos of each item (which I love because it makes it easy to reference the pricing sheet!).

Toms Alpargata Slip On Sneakers, size 8 – Cost to Keep: $34

These shoes are TOO CUTE. The material is a corduroy with tan leather edging and backs. They’re so cute, but they’re size 8 when I needed a 9 for Gideon. I mentioned this in my feedback when checking it out, and I was happy to see that they emailed me very shortly after checking out to apologize and correct it.

stitch fix kids white tee

Odin & Ivy the Classic Short Sleeve Graphic Tee – Cost to Keep: $12

I like this tee. It’s got a vintage vibe and fit Gideon very well!

Tailor Vintage Caleb Jersey Short, Grey – Cost to Keep: $18

These are fantastic shorts. They’re knit, but very well-made and feel like they will hold up well for a long time. I have some more formal/church-appropriate khaki shorts for Gideon but no nice, casual, neutral shorts so I definitely kept these.

Flapdoodles Fundamental Sports Graphic Tee – Cost to Keep: $12

This shirt is really soft and has an adorable detail of an upside-down pocket with a graphic of various things falling out of it like a basketball, burger, Saturn, football, donut, etc. The fabric was exceptionally soft, though the cut of the tee was actually a little long on Gideon, which is rare because of how tall he is.

Flapdoodles Yara Solid Jogger – Cost to Keep: $20

These joggers are SO SOFT. I wish they were my size. He loved these and said they were really soft and comfy. Stitch Fix Kids is just doing a great job with the fit for Gideon with bottoms in particular because I haven’t had any fit issues with any of them.

Walnut & 39th Ryder Short Sleeve Crew Graphic Tee – Cost to Keep: $12

It’s a pretty silly tee, but Gideon thought it was funny, which is what matters. The shoulder seams were a little wide on him and the sleeves a little long, but it still fit him fine. We didn’t keep this one, though, because the other shirts fit him better and are more our style, and the material of this tee didn’t feel as high quality.

Joules Richard Woven Pull-On Short – Cost to Keep: $22

These shorts are a win. Navy shorts are so versatile and the construction of these are great. The length hits him in the right place and the waistband is soft has a functional drawstring. This is another item I could tell is nice quality.stitch fix kids jogger jeans 1

Flapdoodles Emmett Denim Jogger – Cost to Keep: $20

I really wanted to like these denim joggers! The material is really stretchy and I like the style, but there was something difficult about putting them on Gideon. They aren’t skin tight, but the elastic around the ankles is a smaller opening, so getting his feet through took more finagling than it should have. I thought they looked nice once they were on him, but I could tell I wouldn’t want to reach for these when we pick out his clothes for the day. So close! But these went back.

Flapdoodles Flynn Raglan Tee – Cost to Keep: $14

I actually don’t think we have any raglan in Gideon’s wardrobe! I think this is so cute on him, and the material was light and breathable. However, it seemed to just fit him in the shoulders and I don’t know if it’d be too snug by the time the weather cools off enough for long sleeves.

Joules Ike Windbreaker Jacket – Cost to Keep: $26

First of all, I love the color scheme of this windbreaker, and the design has animal heads (bears, reindeer, foxes, etc) in hats, headbands, and goggles. It’s a really cute print! But we did send this back, because I have never used a windbreaker, for myself or Gideon. Generally, if it’s windy or chilly or drizzling, I tend to just grab a hoodie or jacket, something with some warmth as extra layers. Am I doing it wrong? Am I missing out on something? Readers, do you wear windbreakers, and in what weather conditions?

The Verdict: Gideon’s second Stitch Fix Kids box was a hit again! I can definitely tell that their selection seems high-quality and their choices for Gideon were spot on with our style. As I said before, everything fit really well, too. Even (and especially) bottoms which can be a little hit or miss in 3T for Gideon when I shop for them because he’s tall, but relatively slim so often the waists of 3T bottoms are a bit loose. As far as prices go, I think they seem reasonable. Some seem a little high, but I’m really happy with the quality of everything (except maybe the dinosaur shirt in this SFK delivery – it seemed a little more average) that I get it. I also like that there are so many items sent, so even if you just want to pick one item so you don’t lose out on your styling fee, it’s not hard to find at least one item to love without spending much more or any more than you already have with your fee.

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. What you get might not be the same as what we got, but you will probably get something that fits your child’s style and size even better than the looks above! Sign up and see what they choose for you!

Value Breakdown: This box cost $20 with free shipping and returns. The total retail value of the items inside is $194. The invoice lists the cost of each item next to it, but if I keep all 5 items, then I get a 25% discount. The $20 styling fee for the box is applied to the purchase no matter how many items you keep, and in this case, it would bring the total down to $125.50. That’s a discount of around 35% for these items!

  1. We have our first kid fix coming Monday! Just wanted to check on something – you need to keep all items for the kids’ discount or just five items? Either way, the quality and prices seem great so I am excited for it!

    • Kristin, you need to keep all the items for the discount. This box costs $125 total including the 25% off discount. 🙂 With my personal, 5-item stitch fixes for me, it’s often more than that price for everything even after the discount!

  2. We also got the Flapdoodles pants and some good shirts, but other than I was really disappointed with my first Stitch Fix Kids box. They sent athletic wear that I had explicitly said “no” to in the “would your kid wear this?” section, and there’s currently no way to get both “girls” and “boys” stuff in the same box, which I find frustrating, since my toddler loves designs from both sections of the store, and it’s not like fit is that different for toddler boys vs toddler girls.

    It has definitely been a good way to learn about new brands, though, and how they fit my kid. We’ll probably try again, but it would be nice to be able to link to a Pinterest board or something the way I do from my own Stitch Fix profile.

    • I got Stitch Fix Kids box for my son. I just added the link to his Pinterest board in the note to my stylist. She was able to look at the board and get ideas for him. I loved his first box.

  3. Impressed – I expected this to send clothes that were way too expensive for kidwear but this is a good selection and decent prices.

  4. He is too cute Haley!
