(Stitch Fix Men) March 2017 Box Review #1: Getting Ready for Spring

My husband, Kevin, continues to enjoy the Stitch Fix Men clothes subscription that I bought him for Christmas.  He’s received several Fixes so far, but this is the first that I am posting here.  He has his own rules for determining what to keep and what th send back, but… one that he doesn’t follow is my “one item per box” rule!  Once again, he had trouble deciding what to keep!

His stylist, Jennifer, wrote this personal note:

Hey Kevin.  I have a great pair of jenas for you by Big Star.  These are the straight fit that you prefer.  Since the wash is so dark, you can easily dress them up.  The Tencel in these jeans help make them soft and breathable.  The Woolrich double cloth shirt is going to look great paired with these. It is made from sustainable fibers as well!  The colors here work so well togehter.  Since it is made with indigo, make sure you double check the wash instructions.  The coral polo will give you a nice pop of color going into Spring.  I think you are really going to love the feel of the Johnnie-O pullover.  The modal wil make it feel like butter on your skin! I also have a casual hooded pullover for you to try since you do like leasure wear.  Pair this with athletic shorts or fleece pants to lounge around the house!  Enjoy. Over-and-Out – Jennifer.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, here’s how it works.

1. Fill out your Style Profile

Begin by filling out the Style Profile. This helps them understand your size, style, shape, budget and lifestyle. Completing your Profile  takes about 10 minutes.

2. Pick the date you’d like to receive your shipment

Select a delivery date from the calendar. At the time your Stylist selects your items, you will be charged a $20 styling fee. That $20 will be applied as a credit toward anything you keep from your shipment.

3. Try everything on in the comfort of your home

Make sure you to try on everything our Stylists have picked for you because you never know what will look great on you. Create new outfits by pairing what’s in your shipment with items that are already in your closet.

4. Buy what you like and return the rest

Take three days to decide what you’ll purchase and what you’d like to send back. You’re only charged for items you choose to keep when you check out.

Check out by logging into your account to pay for the items you want to keep. The $20 styling fee will be applied as credit toward any items you purchase. If you buy all five items,  you get 25% off the entire  purchase

Simply return the items you don’t want in our prepaid mailer and drop it into any USPS mailbox. Stitch Fix provides free shipping both ways as a benefit of using the service.

******************************

So here are the items that Kevin received in his latest box!  Overall, it was a good one and he ended up keeping a couple of items. 

Alternative Apparel Marathon Hooded Pullover.  Price to keep: $40.00

Big Star Division Straight Fit Jean.  Price to keep: $118.00

 

Kevin thought this hoodie was way too thin… pajama-like, he said.  I think it’s meant to for the Spring, but when we think hoodie around here, we think thick, thick, winter wear.  He wasn’t interested in keeping this. 

STATUS: RETURNED

The jeans are very nice.  They are a very dark color jean that he doesn’t already have, fit well and are made of quality material.  He decided to keep these. 

STATUS: KEPT 

Original Penguin Daddy-O Solid Polo.  Price to keep: $55.00

 

I love this pink color for Spring!  Well… I’ve always liked this color on his skin.  The detail on this polo shirt is nice, with the grey accent at the opening on the neck. It really goes nicely with the jeans and fits him very well.  With a little convincing from me, he decided to keep this one. 

STATUS: KEPT

Woolrich Weekend Eco Rich Double Cloth Shirt. Price to keep: $69.00

   

 

Another nice plaid shirt that we both like.  The shirt fits really nice and the checkered detail just on the inside of the opening is really nice.  The shirt also goes really well with the jeans and makes for a nice outfit to wear into the city.  However, he’s recevied several plaid and print button downs in previous Fixes and Trunk Club boxes.  He already has several blue patterns and doesn’t feel the need for another. This shirt goes back.

STATUS: RETURNED 

Johnnie-O Cody Modal Pullover. Price to keep: $$125.00

   

When I think of Kevn and what he likes to wear, I think of a top like this!  This top looks sporty like a sweatshirt, but is really a sweater. It’s an all around versatile item and great for transition to Spring.  But, at some point, budget has to come into considertation.  This top is a little more pricey and, given other items he wants to keep, Kevin isn’t willing to foot the cost for this one. 

STATUS: RETURNED

So we think this is a pretty successful Fix!  Most items are keepers, even if we don’t keep them.  Let me know what you think!

How do you rate these items in this Fix?
