I have been a fan of Stitch Fix for women for a while now, so was really excited when I found out they were launching their men’s services. Now, your busy spouse / partner / boyfriend / brother / cousin / dad, etc can have his own men’s clothing subscription service that specifically caters to his wardrobe needs. Come check out our first hand Stitch Fix Men review, and see what we thought!
LOUIS RAPHAEL #32582-928 Campbell Wool Blazer $138
Zach really liked the fit of the blazer, but he had requested a patterned blazer and this just didn’t fit the bill. The color had more of a sheen than he would normally wear, and he’s not a huge fan of the brand. He has tried Louis Raphael before and just hasn’t been a fan – the quality isn’t what he’s looking for.
FAIRLINE #31642-791 Refined Twill Slim Fit Chino $78
The fit was perfect! Which is definitely a first for pants for him (thank goodness for short inseams). The fabric, however, was off though. Zach describes it as a kind of rain pant, slick cottony feeling. They just didn’t feel right, which was a bummer considering the fit, so back these went. Another awesome thing about these Fairline Refined Twill Slim Fit Chinos? They had a special material around the inside of the waistband to help keep tucked in shirts in place!
HAWKER RYE #31095-808 Essential Wash Garment Dye Straight Fit Chino $68
Unfortunately, these were a MAJOR miss for Zach. They reminded him of early / late 90s Tommy Hilfiger khakis, so not great. In his style profile, he listed that he only wanted slim or an almost skinny fit, so even I was disappointed that these were included in his Men’s Stitch Fix box. A big no-no, even from just the unboxing.
FAIRLINE #32171-809 Refined Dress Shirt $68
The fit was good on this one. Not great, but I actually kind of liked it. While it was outside of his normal comfort zone as far as colors: indigo and brown, it wasn’t terrible. There was just nothing special about this shirt that made it feel like it was worth almost seventy dollars, and he wasn’t in love with the fit or colors, so back it went.
HAWKER RYE #32654-004 Long Sleeve Button Down Shirt $44
So full disclosure, I loved this one on him, and was super bummed he didn’t feel the same way. Zach liked this the most out of his entire box, and felt like it was the most his style. The only thing he didn’t like was that it was super short. Since he has shorter legs and a longer torso, the fit was just slightly off, enough so that he wasn’t a fan. When he went to tuck this hawker rye long sleeve button down shirt in, there was just barely enough of a “tail” of the shirt, so it just didn’t work in his business setting need.

Final thoughts on Zach’s Stitch Fix Men Box:
This box was closer to Zach’s ultimate goal than the first one. The stylist got 2/5 items on the “ok” list, but nothing was kept, because he didn’t like anything enough to add it to his closet. And if we’re basing this on a grading system, unfortunately 2/5 is still a fail. We both feel like they’re getting closer to what he needs – a modern casual work from home wardrobe that transitions easily from home to meeting, but Stitch Fix Men just isn’t quite there yet. So while this box was far better than his first, he still didn’t end up keeping anything from this box.
