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)!

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

Your clothes come neatly bundled with a return envelope and styling guide.

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.

Stitch Fix has started a subscription for kids. Now everyone in your family can get styled!

Stitch Fix Kids works the same way as the adult subscriptions, but they get more clothes in every box.

Every Stitch Fix 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.

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. As you can see on the invoice, we joined the optional Style Pass program, so we paid a single, annual styling fee (with unlimited Fixes) instead of $20 per Fix.

I like that they just stack the clothes neatly and don’t make me tear through multiple plastic bags.

Everything in my fix for August 2018.

West Matters Turner Short ($39) The short comes with side pockets, zipper fly, and button design which looks great for casual days. There are loops included if you want to wear this with a belt.

There are two pockets at the back. I like the fabric that they used for this short — it has textured heathered look, and the blueish gray is very versatile. It is also very thin to the touch and comfortable on the skin.

01Algo Peter Striped Performance Vee ($29) It’s a V-neck blue shirt perfect for the summer season. The fabric is cool which means that air is allowed to breeze through. I think this looks great with my new pair of shorts! I love the shade of blue, and the fabric is extremely smooth and soft.

Fairlane & Sons Easy Care Dress Shirt ($49.50) This blue and red checkered dress shirt looks both classic and bold. The long sleeves have some pleating, and it has white buttons and a dress collar. I have noted in profile that I am full-up on cowboy shirts, and my stylist modified my selections to avoid those for awhile — this shirt has classic dress styling, but the color palette is very similar to the multiple exclusively red, white, and blue cowboy shirts I’ve received, so it evokes the same feel and is a little color-redundant for my wardrobe (though I like the look of the shirt itself).

Even Tide Dominic Garment Dyed Polo ($38) I also got this stylish dyed polo which was hand dyed to give it that well-loved look. The color is a nice salmon, and the wash on it looks cool without making it look ragged.

Bixby Nomad Odyssey Short Sleeve Washed Shirt ($48) This blue striped short sleeved top comes with white buttons to close the shirt. The collar is just appropriate. This is a cool and comfy top that you can wear with shorts or jeans, whichever you prefer. It strikes me as a great BBQ or beach shirt, too, as it has a beachy, casual feel, but without the exaggerated styling of Hawaiian or bowling shirt.

This month’s fix is mostly in line with my preferences. I love the short-sleeved tops, they are quite cool on the skin and appropriate for summer, great for a get together with friends or a day out with the family. The dress shirt is a nice business casual option that is nice for AC environments and looking forward to Fall. The shorts are really versatile, and this Fix has a few great Summer outfits in it. All in all, I like what I received and the fact that I don’t have to go to the mall to grab new items for my wardrobe!
