I am so excited to show you our first Stitch Fix Men shipment! Okay, I should say it is Chris’s box but let’s be honest, I had some input and as the official Stitch Fix aficionado in the house, I feel just as excited about his box as I do about my own. (Mine will be here later this week!)
Stitch Fix Men works very similar to Stitch Fix for women. All you do is sign up, pick how often you want to receive a fix, fill out your style profile and then sit back and let the stylist do the work. There is a $20 styling fee associated with each shipment but if you keep any of the items in your box, you deduct the $20 fee from the cost of the items that you keep. Once you receive the box, you try on all of the items in the privacy of your home. Keep what you like and send back what you don’t. If you decide to keep all 5 items, you will receive 25% off the total purchase price of the items!
Prior to each fix, you can leave a note for your stylist telling him / her what type of items you are wanting or if you have any special events coming up. For Chris’s first fix he told his stylist that he was looking for some work clothing that met his dress code (white shirt, black pants and tie) and that he wanted to step up his casual look to get away from his typical geeky t-shirts and jeans ensemble.
Let’s see what he got!
Item #1: Original Penguin James Feeder Stripe Henley
Chris originally wasn’t sure about this shirt. If I had to guess, I would say it is because it has long sleeves since he NEVER wears long-sleeved items. We live in Michigan for crying out loud. Long sleeves are a necessity for like half of the year. I on the other hand, thought that this was the perfect upgrade for Chris. It’s a color that he is comfortable wearing and it is a step up from his usual t-shirt.
Once Chris tried it on, we both had a difference of opinion again. I liked it, he wasnt sure. But I think I’ve talked him into keeping it.
Cost to Keep: $59.00
Item #2: Flag & Anthem Randolph Single Strip Tee
I thought this shirt was going to be a keeper. The blue stripes in this shirt are a perfect complement to Chris’s blue eyes.
However, once he put it on we decided the horizontal stripes were not the most flattering, not to mention, we were trying to get Chris away from t-shirts.
Cost to Keep: $26.50
Item #3: 7 Diamonds Journey Straight Fit Chino
I think Chris and I were thinking the same thing about these pants. They were not something he would normally wear or pick out for himself. But that was the whole point of this, right?!
While we both agreed that the pants looked good on him, Chris ultimately decided that he wouldn’t wear them often enough to justify keeping them
Cost to Keep: $78.00
Item #4: Boconi Leo Burnished Leather Belt
The belt is nice and seems to be of good quality. It went well with the chino pants but a brown belt isn’t something that Chris had a need for right now.
Cost to Keep: $38.00
Item #5: Hawker Rye Essential Wash Long Sleeve Shirt
What you see as a plain white shirt, Chris sees as an upgrade to his work shirt repertoire. When you have to wear just about the same thing every day, even the smallest difference feels like a big change. This shirt is super soft and seems to be of good quality, which is great because it is going to get a lot of wear.
Cost to Keep: $58.00
Chris went into his first fix with an open mind. He was satisfied with what he was sent and he is happy with what he decided to keep. As for me, I think his stylist did a great job for his first fix as it takes time to get to know someone’s style.
Since his frist fix went so well, we’ve decided to schedule a fix for Chris every three months to help keep his closet refreshed.
