Every so often, we chat fashion at Carrots. I hope it feels like going shopping with a friend, but not having to try on jeans….or leave your couch.
Look at this guy! His birthday was Tuesday. And I think he’s just the best. Usually for Friday Fashion Frivolity I share a a few items or a new box of Stitch Fix pieces, tell ya my thoughts, get my family’s takes, and share what I kept and what I sent back. But this time….drumroll….I made my husband Daniel try Stitch Fix for Men. WHO’S EXCITED?
(I’m not gonna go into the details of the personal styling service Stitch Fix in this post, but if you want to know more you can check out whether Stitch Fix is worth it. Here’s the basics: five items chosen just for you by your stylist arrive in a box to your doorstep. You try ‘em on and send back what you don’t want.)
Daniel is in dire need of some new clothes. Especially after a year as a livestock intern on the farm. Several of his favorite shirts he’s had since before we were married (10 years) and a couple he’s had SINCE WE MET (at age 15). Insert the scream emoji here.
And I was really curious about how Stitch Fix for Men worked and if he could get anything he liked in a fix. I’ve been using Stitch Fix to create my wardrobe for more than two years so it was fun to see how Stitch Fix for Men was different. Even the box itself and the style sheets and everything had more manly fonts and design, lots of dark hunter green. FASHION CAN BE MANLY, Y’ALL. Anyhow, here’s how it turned out!
Top: Stitch Fix
Item #1: Grey shirt. This looks just like something Daniel would pick out himself. We were both fans. I liked the color and the fit, but keeping the whole fix wasn’t in the budget. Otherwise this one would be a keeper for sure.
7yo Benjamin’s Take: “I REALLY like this shirt. I’m just not sure if it looks that great on Dad.”
Items #2: Jeans. We both liked the fit of these jeans. In fact, they’re really similar to his favorite pair of jeans and I was really impressed Stitch Fix picked something that was so suited to him. I wish he’d kept them because I recently discovered he has exactly one pair of pants that’s not riddled with holes.
3yo Gwen’s take: “Good. I like them.”
Item #3: Garnet Sweater. I loved the color of this one!
My take: “I wish it had a big D knitted into the front so it could be like a Weasley sweater.”
Shirt: Stitch Fix , Pants: Who Knows
Item #4: Blue Button-Up. Daniel really needed some dress shirts and this one fit the bill! He kept it.
5yo Lucy’s take: “I think the color is so pretty and Daddy could wear it to Mass.”
Item #5: Light Brown Jacket. Daniel really liked the fabric and style of this jacket. But it was just SLIGHTLY too long in the arms and would have needed altering.
But I’d love to get him one exactly like it.
5yo Lucy’s take: “Oh, yes! He could wear that to Mass, too!”
Overall, Daniel liked it and said, “I’d do it again. But I also hate spending money on clothes so…..” Which is true, hence the almost no clothing items without holes. Luckily he works at a farm so he doesn’t have to be super fastidious. But…I’m of the opinion that more clothing items that could be worn to Mass would be a plus.
And stay tuned for a post about my most recent Stitch Fix! I got a coat that I LOVE.
