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 May 2018.
When Stitch Fix sends shoes, they come tucked in their own canvas bag.
This Fix’s shoes were from Toms, who sent a nifty sticker along with the shoes. With every pair of shoes sold, TOMS will give a new pair of shoes to a child in need.
Toms Cabrillo Perforated Suede Lace-Up Sneaker ($85) These lace-up sneakers are inspired by athletic wear trends – simple yet sporty with a perforated heel detail.The upper part of the sneakers is made of suede, a type of leather with a napped finish, with padded collar for better cushioning.
The heelcap has a lot of holes making the shoes breathable. It also has a dual density footbed for a better cushion for walking and running. The bottom of the sole lay flat against the ground, VANS style.
These shoes has a removable insole, lightweight midsole, and a rubber outsole. It’s the ideal sneaker for everyday wear!
Alesbury Dakota Straight Fit Jean ($88) This pair of jeans has a timeless style. It has a faded front, and is so lightweight so it’s comfortable to wear all day.
The jeans features slim tailoring at the legs, rear, and waist. I also like the moderate rise at the waist, it’s not a low-rise jean, but stays low enough that I don’t have to try to button my belly into it. Typically, jeans in my size have a fairly deep top panel in back, but these are styled to minimize the panel, making the jeans look like those worn by slender folk.
I like the style of wash on these. It’ll look great whether with button downs, sweatshirts or jackets!
Original Penguin Dakota Slim Spacedye Polo ($69) This short sleeve polo definitely stands out because of its light orange color. It’s not something I’d usually choose, but the color is very pretty, if you want something that really pops. Is anyone else suddenly craving a Creamsicle?
The shirt was space dyed, thus the fine striped pattern on the shirt. It has a nice fit too, not too tight nor too loose – just enough to keep you comfortable despite the heat. It features a breast pocket and a four-button closure at the neck.
Fairlane & Sons Dress Shirt ($49.50) I’ve received dress shirts from Fairlane before and I like how comfortable they are. This one is not an exception because it’s lightweight and the colors are easy on the eyes. It has a slight pleat at the sleeves and a dress collar.
It’s quite versatile, as it can be worn underneath a jacket or a sweater. The fit is great on my shoulders and on my arms as well. This will look great with either jeans or slacks, or even tailored shorts!
Heritage Sully Textured Nep Lightweight Twill Shirt ($58) Made of twill fabric, this short-sleeved shirt has a summery appeal. It’s light and breathable, plus it can recover easily from wrinkles and creases
The color is a light shade of pinkish purple. It has some fun details to set it apart from the crowd, like the hemmed sleeves and small, complementary patch where the side vents at the waist would be.
It has a nice loose fit and linen look that’s Summer-friendly.
My fix this month involved more colors than what I usually receive, but since summer is nearing, they still fit the bill! The checkered long sleeves and purple short sleeved shirt are versatile pieces that I can pair with either jeans, slacks, or shorts. Meanwhile, the pair of straight fit jeans pairs looks awesome with the Toms sneakers! I like how Stitch Fix makes it convenient for me to add new pieces to my wardrobe. They do consider my clothing preferences, and they don’t forget what’s appropriate for the season too!
