I Talked My Husband Into Trying Stitch Fix!

Did you know that Stitch Fix now has a service to style men? I think that this is a brilliant idea. Most guys hate shopping and let their wives pick out their clothes anyway. My mom actually signed my dad up to get a Stitch Fix last month, and I was incredibly curious to see what it was like. 

I've gotten 3 fixes, and have really enjoyed it-especially now that they offer size exchanges. So when I found my dad was expecting a box in the mail, I really wanted to see how they did. They nailed it. He loved every single item! So I casually mentioned it to Blake, to see if he'd be interested in trying it out. 

I wasn't sure if he'd go for it, since he is very particular about his clothes. (I definitely don't do a lot of picking out for him, because it's futile) But he was actually agreeable, and even let me take pictures of the items he tried on. This is what happens when you are married to a blogger! Also, I misplaced the card with the names of the clothes...so you'll have to excuse my descriptions. 

Blake's stylist was named Vanessa and she did an awesome job. When you sign up you have the opportunity to describe your style and ask for certain pieces that your wardrobe is missing. He told them he wore primarily business casual clothing, and requested that the items be Florida heat friendly. And that's exactly what was sent!



Brown Leather Belt & Green Chinos
I knew he'd love this belt as soon as we opened up the box! He didn't already own a belt this particular shade of brown, so it was a keeper right away. Really nice quality too. Keep!

The chinos were also great. He wears a pair of these just about everyday, so we were glad to see a pair in the box. And, again, he doesn't already own a pair this color. He loved these, but they were a tad long. You can exchange for a different size, but when we went online to do that you can't adjust length size....and when we calculated how much it would be to hem them at a tailor, it didn't seem worth it for the price. So they went back. Return!

Navy Polo
Polos are also something Blake wears almost everyday to work. This one was a really nice, soft material and we thought the white piping was a cool touch. He loved this one. Keep!


Navy Linen Short Sleeve Button Up
This was a great shirt, and it fit really well. He almost kept it, but then we both remembered how much we loathe ironing linen. It's impossible! This was the best this shirt was ever going to look, but the idea was right on track. Return!



White Polka Dotted Button Up
This stylist totally nailed Blake's style. So much so that she sent this shirt-one that he had an exact duplicate of already! The fit was perfect and it was a great choice. The only reason he didn't keep it was because he already had one so hilariously similar. Return!


All in all this was a great experience for him! It was an exciting package to get, open and try on. He was super happy with the choices, and he already scheduled his next box. (spoiled much?!) I'm looking forward to seeing how the stylist responds to his feedback and what he ends up with next. 

Guys can be so hard to buy gifts for, so I think this is a great idea of something special for them! Leave a comment below if you think your husband would let you sign him up for Stitch Fix! Do you pick out his clothes for him, or is he more like Blake in that area? Have you tried Stitch Fix yourself?

    1. Haha, if Blake didn't have to dress up for work-he'd be in workout clothes all the time too!

  3. I think my husband would actually love Stitch Fix for Men, but the problem would be that he would want to keep everything!! I'm much better about keeping one or two items I love and sending the rest back, but he probably wouldn't be that good!

    1. I noticed his whole box was significantly cheaper than my last one, so maybe keeping it all wouldn't be so bad!
