I ordered a box for my partner in crime, Justin, and filled out his personal Style Profile with his guidance. I asked his stylist to keep prices on the lower side, to send warm winter clothing, and possibly something he would wear to work, a meeting with clients, or to an interview.
Let’s see what Justin received in his very first Fix, and what he has to say about each piece!
And just an FYI, this post contains affiliate links through which I may be compensated, but all opinions are my own (and in this case Justin’s, of course).
WESC — Arvid Sweater; Extra Large; $78
Flag & Anthem — Chatham Jean; 33×34; $69.50
These two pieces pair very well when it comes to fall weather both functionally and aesthetically. The jeans are a great fit and feel very well sewn together — they’re going to last a while. The sweater is warm and I like the darker color, but the price is just a touch too high for a shirt that I KNOW will shrink over time. At the $69.50 price point I think the jeans are already a tempting choice to hang on to.
Grayers — Harrow Flannel Shirt; Extra Large; $98
I’m not huge into flannel, but I really enjoyed this shirt when wearing it. Michigan winters are brutal and I have no doubt that this would keep me warm. The checkered pattern is nice and the varied color of blue is great, however, for $98… that’s just too high for my budget right now.
Hawker Rye — Essential Wash Long Sleeve Shirt; Extra Large; $58
This shirt fits great! It’s a comfortable piece to wear and I look great in it. The fabric is nice and I could definitely see myself wearing this during cool summer days and into the fall season. I seriously considered buying this because for $58 it’s a good buy, but I’m not a huge fan of the somewhat busy pattern so I decided to turn it down.
Ben Sherman — Grover Quilted Harrington Jacket; Extra Extra Large; $148
On a tall, skinny guy like myself, this coat certainly doesn’t feel XXL. In fact the only place I felt it was large was around my shoulders. Given the $148 price tag I expected this coat to be made out of better material as well. I have other coats that I know will keep me warm and looking great during the colder months, and while aesthetically this coat looks good, I think the fabric won’t keep me very warm at all. For the higher price I feel I could get a more functional coat from elsewhere.
Overall Thoughts — Justin
I think this was definitely a good taste at what Stitch Fix Men can offer. Given my tight budget I wish I could have purchased more than just the jeans, but other than the jacket I feel like the pieces sent to me were well-thought out when it comes to my needs as colder weather arrives and still maintaining a professional look. I think the prices still remain a touch high for a couple of the shirts, especially the Arvid Sweater which feels like it wouldn’t last very long after a few wash cycles. Overall I’m pleased with the selection and may consider trying another box down the road.
Overall Thoughts — Karin
It was exciting to finally experience Stitch Fix Men, since I’ve been such a fan of the women’s side of the company for so long and knew the men’s portion was coming! I think Justin made a great choice by keeping the jeans and sending the rest back. Unfortunately, it seemed his stylist didn’t take into consideration the price point stated in his Style Profile, so he received items that were too expensive when you’re on a strict budget. But being it’s the first box, it’s usually hit-or-miss. I did, however, like the variety I saw! I wouldn’t mind seeing him schedule another in the future.
