Stitch Fix Kids April 2019 Review
In every Stitch Fix Kids box, they include a pre-paid shipping envelope for returns.
I think it is cute that the information sheet has a maze on it for your kid, plus stickers, and the inside flaps of the shipping box have some activities and ideas for how to play with the box, too!
Here’s the item list of the clothing they selected for my son, and their individual prices. The items total $190 but with my $20 styling fee applied, and the keep-everything 25% off discount, the total adds up to be $122.50.
The reverse of that card shows photos of each item (which I love because it makes it easy to reference the pricing sheet).
Sovereign Code Lawrence Conversational Short Sleeve Button-Up Shirt – Cost to Keep: $22
This shirt was love at first sight for us. I love the style and the novelty print, plus the fit is perfect and it feels really well made. This is going to be such a fun shirt this Summer.
PX Antonio Short Sleeve Textured Chambray Trim Polo Tee – Cost to Keep: $16
This is a lightweight and soft polo. I like the black and grey trim details, and the fit is spot on. He really needed some collared shirts in his current size so I was happy to see this in our box. The neck hole was a little small even with the button undone but it’s not too bad and we love it otherwise so it’s a keeper, too.
Rumi + Ryder the Classic Short Sleeve Graphic Tee – Cost to Keep: $16
I love biology and I love science jokes! Look how cute this tee is! The design and typography are done really well, too. I get a kick out of this tee.
PX Ario Short Sleeve Slub with Printed Stripe Tee – Cost to keep: $14
This is a crisp, classic tee that can be casual or dressed up a bit with colorful chinos. It’s a nice, versatile tee.
Art + Eden Irwin Organic Cotton Knit Short – Cost to Keep: $20
These shorts are made with 100% cotton, so they’re quite soft and breathable. The waistband is designed in a way that’s very soft and I’m happy that there’s a functional drawstring because they’d be a tad loose otherwise.
Rumi + Ryder the Classic Short Sleeve Graphic Tee – Cost to Keep: $14
Here’s another cute science-y tee from the same brand as the DNA tee. Just like the first, it’s soft, smartly designed, and has great colors and typography. My favorite part about it is how well it goes with these shorts, below…
Andy + Evan Basile Stripe Print French Terry Short – Cost to Keep: $16
I love dressing Gideon in comfy pants and shorts because they just seem so cozy and easy-to-wear for playing hard and running, both of which my son does constantly. The length of these are nice, and I’m so glad the stripes match up. I also appreciate the small details like the rolled hem, patterned drawstring, and pocket with the stripes rotated diagonally. This outfit together is my favorite.
Andy + Evan Dave Stretch Twill Chinos – Cost to Keep: $24
The bold color of these chinos is great. They also have an adjustable waistband, which is helpful, but even so, I think that he’ll need to grow into them a little bit. Fortunately, these are a style of pant and weight of material that they’ll work even into Fall or Winter if that’s when he ends up fitting into them best.
Rumi + Ryder Classic Short Sleeve Button Down – Cost to Keep: $20
Again, I’m loving the bright colors in this print! And it goes perfectly with the blue chinos. As I mentioned earlier, he’s needed some new collared shirts for church, Easter, etc. in his current size. This is a keeper, too.
Hatley Breakfast Time Organic Cotton Sleepwear Set – Cost to Keep: $28
I don’t know if you can tell, but I love novelty prints for my boys. This breakfast time print is unbelievably adorable. There’s cereal, waffles, “dino crunch” cereal, eggs, syrup, everything! My son loves how soft this fabric is, which is 100% organic cotton and has a nice thickness to it that will help them also be warm.
The Verdict: This was such a great Stitch Fix for Gideon this month! We kept the whole box. I loved the playfulness of this month’s selections and we had no fit issues, except for the chinos which are fine for him to grow into a bit. I’m always happy with the quality of everything Stitch Fix sends us, too. The pieces we’ve kept over the course of our subscriptions have washed and held up well and have been some of his favorite pieces to wear. I know these pieces will last and get passed down to my younger son. I think the prices are pretty reasonable for the quality. I also like that there are so many items sent – 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 thing to love without spending much 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 (styling fee) with free shipping and returns. The total retail value of the items inside is $190 according to Stitch Fix’s invoice sheet. The invoice lists the cost of each item, and if I keep all 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 $122.50 if I kept everything. That’s a total discount of about 35% off retail.
