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)!

Your clothes come neatly bundled with a return envelope and styling guide. I can tell from the packaging that this Fix includes some shoes!

We see great compliments in your future.

The green envelope contains a run-down of your Fix and a 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.

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. Now you can see your past items in your Stitch Fix profile, which is an awesome feature!

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 November 2018. They know I generally like blue and dark colors, so they’ve worked those into this Fix.

Cole Haan Grand Pro Sneaker ($) Cole Haan is an American footwear designer that has been creating modern designs with traditional craftsmanship since 1928. As always, the shoe selection comes in a canvas drawstring bag.

Inside the pouch is this stunning pair of Grand Pro sneakers. I am impressed with the deep brown color of the shoes already. I usually get non-sneakers white, gray, or black, so this pair of tennis-style “sneakers” is a nice addition for me. It straddles dress and casual, and it is the perfect color to match with either earth tones or blues.

The hand-stained leather uppers bring a bit of class to the laid back sole. The smooth and polished finish looks as if it will develop a nice bit of patina as it wears, as well.

The white soles bring out the beauty of the finish on these shoes while giving them an extra padding at the bottom. It certainly complements the look!

It has a blind-eyelet lace construction with an embossed logo detail on the tongue. This is a really beautiful and versatile pair of shoes!

These rubber soles have an intricate pattern on the treads which show that they will have a good grip on the floor. It’s lightweight so wearing them is a breeze.

Red Ale Adley Straight Fit Jean ($) This straight fit jean is in Burgundy. It features a button and zip, plus two pockets in front.

There are two back pockets as well. Overall, the pants have a comfortable, relaxed fit and very classic styling.

This color gives a different impression depending on that with which it is worn. The tone can come across as vivid purple, brown, and anywhere in between. It is a very bold piece to add to the wardrobe.

Tailor Vintage Anchor Stretch Jersey One-Pocket Tee ($) With the temperatures going down, I am glad that they included this stretch jersey in this month’s Fix. Its dark color traps the heat when worn. I feel comfortable in it too.

The barely-seen pocket is more of a decorative add-on than a cargo area. It has a slightly heathered look.

Red Ale Riverside Button Mockneck Sweater ($) This mock neck sweater is like a mash-up of a sweater, a slightly cowled turtleneck, and a henley. I love the casual look to it, with the four buttons from the collar down.

The closed-neck design is nice and cozy, and the cuffs also help keep out the cold.

Alesbury Denali Two Pocket Doublecloth Workshirt ($) This is a great piece for every day wear. The checkered look never gets old, and since it’s a button type of shirt, it’s easy to wear.

I like that the breast pockets are barely seen in this shirt unless you give it a close inspection. It’s there, but you just have to look closely. It’s a good sign when they take the effort to line up the fabric at the seams. This shirt is good for both casual and business casual wear, particularly around the Holidays.

Since this is a double cloth work shirt, I took a peek on the underside and I love the colors. The green stripes look great. This is a perfect Holiday party shirt, too!

The green panelling is on the interior of the sleeves, too, so you get a cool effect and complementary color pane when you roll up the sleeves.

Stitch Fix Men for November has put together several go-to fall outfits for me. I was impressed the most by the Cole Haan Grand Pro sneakers — a blend of class and comfort. The best part is that I can pair the sneakers with any outfit! As for the straight jeans, I’m a little trepidatious about the color, but the fit is nice. I like the selection of shirts in this Fix, particularly the mockneck and the workshirt. Stitch Fix Men remains a great resource for any guy who lacks time or style confidence, as they provide a handy combination of curation and convenience. They take the season in to account and help you build your wardrobe effortlessly.
