Stitch Fix Men is a personal styling service customized to your fit, lifestyle & spending preferences. Just like Stitch Fix for women, your stylist will send you 5 pieces based on your profile for you to try on at home. You only keep what you love, and you never have to set foot in a mall! There are no coupons for Stitch Fix, but if you love everything in your fix, you save 25% when you keep the whole fix (read below for details)!

Though the packaging is understated, you still receive those little extra touches, like a cloth bag for your shoes.

Every box includes styling cards showing a couple looks for each item in the fix. There’s usually a dressed up (right) and more casual (left) version for each piece of clothing. The cards are not currently accessible in your Stitch Fix profile, but you can request a PDF via email.

The packaging is pretty good – it’s clean and masculine. They used a darker palette and styled the subscription to make it appealing to men.

Here’s how Stitch Fix Men works: First, you fill out your style profile. This includes style, budget, and what you’re looking for – you can get as detailed as you want with the notes to your stylist. Your stylist is very responsive to your requests and will work hard to find pieces that fit your declared style, so the more info you provide, the better your selections will be. After trying them on and deciding what to keep, you return the pieces you don’t want in the prepaid mailer (free shipping!). Your stylist takes note of what you kept (and why) and what you didn’t, along with any additional feedback you provide, so your clothes selections become better “tailored” to you over time.

If you keep everything you get a 25% discount. This is why it is so important to be detailed and accurate in your profile, as it increases the chances that your stylist will run the table and score your great clothes and a discount (without having to keep anything you don’t really want). You will check-out and get charged through your Stitch Fix Men account. You’ll be charged a $20 styling fee and shipped five items to try on at home. If you keep anything your styling fee will be applied to your order, but if you don’t, you will pay the $20 fee.

Everything in my fix for March 2018. I asked for items good for our Orlando trip earlier this month!

Greats Rosen Perforated Nubuck Leather Sneakers ($99) This pair of classic running shoes features a premium perforated nubuck upper with a luxurious suede hit on the back heel.

The design is awesome! The holes from quarter, vamp, and toe box make it more breathable for my feet.

These shoes are light and very comfortable to wear. I just have a little concern about the suede heel counter, ’cause I know it’s gonna be hard to clean when it gets dirty.

The sole has an extra-durable dual density EVA with circular-lugged FreeRide outsole from Vibram, a well-known company who are famous for developing soles on the shoes. This would be a perfect pair of running shoes for me!

7 Diamonds Momentum Textured Hybrid Short ($49) Perfect for spring and even for summer, this textured hybrid cotton chino shorts combines a timeless style with a comfortable fit.

I love the classic feel. The shorts are made of a soft PIMA cotton-blend with a small amount of stretch. It’s so comfortable, I can wear them all day long!

It has embossed leather patch and contrast print insides, which add a unique edge to the otherwise plain chino shorts.

Hawker Rye Essential Heather Crew Tee ($28) This crew neck tee with open neck and relaxed lower body is very lightweight. It is shrink resistant and yields a super soft fabric that makes it comfy for everyday wear.

7 Diamonds Subsonic Stretch Chambray Shirt ($74) Paired with the chino shorts, this short-sleeved chambray shirt would make a nice casual spring look. The shirt is 97% cotton and 3% spandex.

The inner lining of the sleeves, back of the collar, and button closure are all floral.

Oh and there is that little floral loop at the back. It’s pretty understated springtime contrast.

Jachs Bentley Polo ($34) A 3 button polo made with sueded cotton fabric. It was dyed for a broken in look and soft hand feel.

The back hem is longer than the front. The shirt also has a little red x mark stitched on the side on the vent.

This batch included spring ready clothes, like shirts and a pair of chino shorts, and I couldn’t be happier! I opened this box up right before we left on vacation and my wife was super happy that I got a springtime wardrobe update and out of some of my scuzzier items. Although I kept some items from this box, including the shorts, we did update our subscriptions to the flat rate unlimited styling fees for the year, so there’s no more deciding what’s worth it to keep given the styling fee – I just kept my favorite pieces and was done! I loved not having to hem and haw over which pieces to keep!
