Stitch Fix Review (Men’s) – February 2019
Stitch Fix is a personal styling service that is ideal for anyone who doesn’t have time to shop, is looking for specific items each season, or just loves clothing in general. For a short period of time, StitchFix is giving a $25 credit to new users! Use my link to snag this offer.
Since I’m still receiving maternity clothes (none of which I’m terribly thrilled about), I’m changing it up this month and showcasing Jay’s Stitch Fix! In case you didn’t know, Stitch Fix now offers boxes for men and children. The process is exactly the same, but we did notice the style profile differs for men. They seem to have more visual options to select patterns and styles they’d wear which was fun to browse.
When you sign up, you take an in-depth survey about your clothing sizes, style, and pricing preferences. After reviewing this information, your personal stylist will send you 5 items to try. The fee for this service is $20, which 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 five items, you also get a 25% discount!)
When you receive your box, you have three days to decide what items you want to keep and what items you want to return. There is a “Checkout” option in your online account to let them know what you’re keeping (and paying for) and provide feedback on all the clothes. This is another great opportunity to tell your stylist about your likes/dislikes. Your credit card is only charged for the items you keep (minus the $20 styling fee!). A USPS bag (for the free shipping) is provided in the box to return the other items. I also discovered that USPS will pick up packages from your doorstep, so I didn’t even have to make a trip to the post office!
These are the five items included in Jay’s Stitch Fix Men’s box:
J. Maverick Hennessey Dress Shirt ($49.50) – It’s hard to tell, but this shirt features deep purple stripes which look great with jeans or dress pants. A versatile addition to his closet. Plus, the sleeves are actually long enough! KEEP
Flag & Anthem One Pocket Henley ($34) – A comfy casual sweater that he can wear around the house or out while we’re running errands. KEEP
Hawker Rye Stretch Chinos ($78) – Jay’s first pair of chinos! A bit steep in price, but these are a great alternative to jeans and he said they’re more comfortable too. KEEP
Alesbury Flannel Shirt ($68) – A perfectly nice, soft flannel shirt, but the price was simply too high for this basic piece. RETURN
Red Ale Mockneck Sweater ($49.50) – Neither the light blue color or style of this sweater appealed to Jay, so it was an easy decision to return. RETURN
This was Jay’s second box and both times Stitch Fix sent a variety of items that he liked. They seem to fit him and match his style even better than some of the pieces I receive. He’s also happy that they’re finding items with long sleeves and a slim torso since he’s tall. Although the prices are still a bit higher than what we’d normally pay, the fit and quality make it worthwhile to keep the few items he loves.
I’m always intrigued by these mail bundle type services, but have never tried one. That first shirt looks really nice though! I may have to try this out. It’s nice that they take the headache out of the returns as well!
I was skeptical at first. Though they do a pretty good job of finding things that fit well though and trying to adjust it to your style. Definitely worth trying for a month!
