I Ordered Stitch Fix...For My Husband

July 2, 2018 Baltimore, MD, USA

Sean has a birthday this week, and since he's shown a lot more interest in fashion lately, I decided to shake things up and surprise him with a Stitch Fix box - for men!

Similarly to the original SF box, you complete a style profile, pay a $20 styling fee, and wait for your first fix to arrive (fun fact: they are so confident you will love it, your styling fee is refunded should you not keep anything your first fix!). I filled out all of Sean's sizes, likes, dislikes, and even made some requests based on his birthday wish list.

It arrived early so I gifted it to him early given the return window, but we had fun unboxing it all.

Also, as the other man of the house, McHenry decided to participate. I think he decided to keep the box.

One observation: as a tall guy, the things that fit Sean best are measured sizes (shirts, blazers, etc.) vs the simpler S-XL system. I did notice that they tried to take his measurements into account, but many items sent were basic vs. numerical sizes.

Here's a look at his first fix:

JACHS Nico Seersucker Blazer, $118

This was a casual style blazer at a reasonable price point, but the fit just wasn't there. It was too tight in both the chest and shoulders and was returned. Sean didn't have strong feelings towards this one way or another.

01Algo Foss Contemporay Cut Edge Leather Belt, $38

Sean liked this as a good quality casual belt. He kept this (technically, he exchanged it for one size up - you can do that!).

A Frame Contemporary 5 Pocket Slim Fit Pant, $59

These pants felt kind of cheap and the fit was way off - it arrived a size higher than what I specified for Sean, and while I assumed the pants must run small, this wasn't quite the case. The waist and hips were very loose while the calves were too tight. These were returned.

Rye Toby Summerweight Slub Poplin Shirt, $48

Ironically, this was Sean's least favorite item when he first opened the box, but after trying it on and seeing the photos, he agreed it was fun and different and kept it (and I love the feel of the fabric on this one!).

Artistry In Motion, Greer Garment Dyed Oxford Shirt, $44

There's always room for a classic blue dress shirt...except for one that doesn't fit. The arm length was perfect on this, but the overall fit was boxy, so back it went.

Overall, the main issue this fix was with overall fit. Sean did feel the clothes matched his style and he'd be excited to try another after giving feedback. We signed him up for every other month, so keep an eye for what he gets next later this summer!

Curious to try Stitch Fix for yourself or your man? Get started here - it truly is risk free with the returned fee guarantee!

  1. I’ve always been skeptical of this, so glad to hear he get they met his style! I’ll have to check this out got my husband.. his wardrobe needs a refresh!

  2. I’d love to do something like this for my husband, but he’s a T-shirt and jeans kind of guy.

    1. They definitely offer t shirt and jeans options! they have a wide range of styles based on what your guy likes :)

  3. I didn't know there was a Stitch Fix for men!

  4. If my husband wasn't a total jeans and t-shirt kind of guy, I'd totally look into this for him! Such a great option for guys!

    1. Still look into it! They offer jeans and Ts and it's a good way to find other things he may like!

  5. I've got to do this for my husband. He lost 65 lbs and wants to be more "fashionable" now that he fits in more clothes!

  6. I love the pattern on the shirt he kept.
