Stitch Fix Kids May 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 $222 but with my $20 styling fee applied, and the keep-everything 25% off discount, the total adds up to be $146.50.
The reverse of that card shows photos of each item (which I love because it makes it easy to reference the pricing sheet).
Tailor Vintage Andre Short Sleeve Performance Polo, size 4/5 – Cost to Keep: $18 – Kept
I loved this polo the moment I pulled it out of the box because the fabric is just so soft. I also really like the length of it – perfect for tucking in or just to not ride up when my son plays. Grey is a favorite color of mine for Gideon’s wardrobe because it is so versatile and can go with anything. I’m happy with the price, as well, because it looks like similar polos sell for $33-34 from Tailor Vintage. You can see him model this below.
Flag & Anthem Alfonso Twill Stretch Straight Chino, size 5 – Cost to Keep: $26 – Kept
These grey chinos are fantastic. The waist fits Gideon so perfectly which is always a challenge for us to find (plus they have an adjustable elastic inside). They are a little long but they’re perfect rolled once – I think we’ll get lots of time for him to wear these.
Chaser Rex Short Sleeve Graphic Tee, size 4 – Cost to Keep: $16 – Returned
The concept of this tee is cute, but the material and shape just weren’t right. The fabric felt almost vintage-y with the knit being extremely stretchy (though soft), and the fit had issues with being a smidge short and wide with the shoulders coming way down past his own. We sent this one back.
Andy & Evan Dave Stretch Twill Chinos, size 5 – Cost to Keep: $24 – Returned
The pants I buy my son are usually 5T but it’s clear that size 5 and 5T can be pretty different. These pants were quite big around the waist, and even after adjusting the elastic waistband inside they were bunchy. Even had we managed to get the waist right, the rest of the pants were just baggy on him. These were just not a good fit.
Joules Short Sleeve Pocket Tee, size 4 – Cost to Keep: $22 – Returned
I know I returned this, but I wanted to keep it so badly! It’s a great tee and good quality with a perfect fit and bright colors. The reason I sent it back was that my son is pretty set on tees in his current size, and I just couldn’t justify the price for adding one more to what he already has. This was so cute, though.
Andy & Evan Rudy Long Sleeve Plaid Button Down, teal, size 4T – Cost to Keep: $24 – Returned
I had asked for some button-downs and collared shirts because Gideon needed more options for church in his current size. The fit of this shirt is perfect. If I had received this a month or two ago, I would have kept it in a heartbeat. However, I’m really trying to focus on getting things for the warmer months now, and our church isn’t particularly formal as far as dress goes, so I returned this, too. I didn’t want to get it and then not have him wear it, and only end up reaching for it later when he’d outgrown it. It’s so cute, though, and I’ll definitely ask for button downs from this brand in the Fall or in the next size when we need it.
Tailor Vintage Nelson Short Sleeve Woven Top, size 4/5 – Cost to Keep: $24 – Kept
This short-sleeve button down was a perfect fit! And it paired really well with the grey chinos I already knew I was keeping. This will be great for the summer!
Andy & Evan Rudy Long Sleeve Plaid Button Down, white, size 4T – Cost to Keep: $24 – Returned
I wish I had asked for button downs last month in time for Easter! This would have been perfect. It’s hard to see but along with the blue and green stripes, there are very faint pink stripes that make this print feel so Springy to me. I sent this back for the same reasons as the other long sleeve button down, but part of me still wishes I had kept it because it looks so nice. We could roll up the sleeves to make them as good as short sleeves for the summer. I had a budget to stick to, though, and as I said earlier, I can ask for this or similar items in the future when I know we’ll get good wear from it.
The Verdict: This was such a great Stitch Fix for Gideon again! I could have easily kept most of the items, but I had to be picky and keep to the amount I wanted to spend. I am really happy with what my stylist chose for my son in line with the requests I had for this month’s box. The quality of everything is always quite good to great, and the pieces we’ve kept over the months have held up very well. 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.

Value Breakdown: This box cost $20 (styling fee) with free shipping and returns. The total value of the items inside is $222 according to Stitch Fix’s invoice sheet. The invoice lists the cost of each individual item, and if I were to keep all of them 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 $146.50 if I kept everything. That’s a total discount of about 34%.
