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 April 2018.
Flag & Anthem Kinston Burnout Vee Tee ($29.50) – Featuring an athletic fit, this gray v-neck shirt is ideal to wear during casual days. It has a slightly sheer and weathered look, which is great if you’re going for a rugged style.
Paired with jeans or layered with a jacket, I’d be really comfortable in it. It’s made of cotton and polyester, so it’s soft and breathable.
Red Ale Adley Straight FIt Jean ($68) I remember getting a pair of Red Ale jeans from my January fix and I absolutely loved it, so I was happy to see another pair from the brand this month. It’s lightweight and comfortable to wear. I think the faded look of the jeans fits the gray v-neck shirt perfectly!
It has a slim tailoring too, which was comfortable because it wasn’t too baggy but not too tight.
The white wavy lines at the hips give this jeans an edgy look.
There are also intentional crease marks on the knee pit that adds to the overall rugged look of this pair.
Threads 4 Thought Baseline Triblend Henley ($34) It’s a triblend eco-jersey made of 50% polyester, 37% organic cotton, and 13% rayon. It’s short-sleeved, and has a slim and comfortable fit. The best thing about it is that the materials used in making the shirt is completely sustainable and that the portion of all proceeds support an international rescue committee.
Fairlane & Sons Easy Care Dress Shirt ($49.50) This checkered polo fits spring perfectly. It looks so put together with its pastel colors!
The subtle buttons looked perfect with the rest of the button-down shirt.
It can be worn underneath a jacket or a sweater during the colder spring days. The fit is great on my shoulders and on my arms as well.
I’d wear it with a classic pair of dark jeans for contrast, but if you’re really going for the soft springtime look, it will also look well with light-colored slacks.
Original Penguin Lief Knit Shirt ($89) I received another long-sleeved button-down shirt from the box, and it’s in dark gray. The knit material is lightweight, while the fit makes me look sleek and sophisticated.
The white buttons add a striking contrast to the grey color of this knit shirt, from the collar all the way to the cuffs.
The back design gives more emphasis to the shoulders. This will look great with boat shoes and a nice pair of shorts.
This month’s box was packed with a couple of wardrobe essentials and some clothes I can wear for spring. I like the weathered look of both the burnout shirt and the jeans, they look ruggedly cool. I even got two button-downs, one with a soft feel and the other with a more polished look. Except for the plaid button down, every shirt I received is in a neutral color and I’m not complaining. Everything fits my style! These pieces are quite versatile too, many of them can be easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Stitch Fix makes it convenient for me to add new pieces to my wardrobe, plus they really consider my clothing preferences so I’m happy about this styling subscription!
