I received my first Fix from Stitch Fix the other day and I want to share my thoughts on each item as well as my ratings and my overall impression of Stitch Fix so far. I’ve included pictures (all taken by me) of the items separately as well as how the look on me. Please note that I am not used to posting pictures of myself trying on clothing and that I am definitely no model.
When first opening the box there is a nice than you note on the inside and the clothes are neatly packaged inside. They do a nice job of making you feel excited about the receiving the package.
Odyssey Short Sleeve Washed Shirt Rating: 3 out of 5
The first item is the Odyssey Short Sleeve Washed Shirt. This shirt is pretty nice. Normally I would wear long sleeved button down shirts so I have the option of rolling up or down the sleeves, but this will make a nice addition for summer.
Kensington Lux Pima Polo Rating: 4 out of 5
The second item is the Kensington Lux Pima Polo. At first, I didn’t think I was going to like this shirt. I don’t typically wear polos and I often find that their cuts are to wide and boxy for me. However, I really like this one. The cut/fit were near perfect and the material is extremely comfortable. This will probably be my go-to polo from here on out.
Issac Hooded Performance Fleece Rating: 3 out of 5
The third piece in the box was the Issac Hooded Performance Fleece. I decided to keep this one as well, but I have mixed feelings on it. The style and comfort level of this fleece is great, but the sizing is a bit off. For an XS it feels a bit big especially in the sleeves. My other concern is that I joined Stitch Fix with the hopes of receiving items that were a bit on the stylish side and this is definitely more on the athletic/comfort side. While I kept it and it I think it will be nice on some of the cooler summer nights, I hope that this will be the only athletic style piece I receive.
Riverside Crewneck Sweater Rating: 5 out of 5
I love this sweater. This is exactly the type of clothing what I was hoping for from Stitch Fix. The style/size/fit are all perfect on this sweater. I have nothing bad to say about this one at all.
Zach Straight Leg Jean Rating: 5 out of 5
Again, these jeans are near perfect. I have a hard time finding jeans that fit and these fit quite nicely. The stylist read and used the note that I left when I signed up stating that the length is very important as I am short and most jeans are just too long. The other thing I like about these is the material. They are very soft and a bit stretchy which is neat, I’ve never owned jeans like these before and I am sure I will get a lot of wear out of them.
So overall I was very pleased with my first fix. I went through their checkout process and rated each item as well as left notes for them on each about what I liked and or didn’t like. I also left a note for the stylist to read before selecting items for my next fix. I did not go through the prices above because for me stylish clothing that fits is more important than the cost of the items unless it is completely unreasonable. Stitch Fix does a nice job of keeping their prices reasonable and matching to what you put in your profile. The cost of the items after checkout averaged at about $48 per item which for me is a pretty good deal.
While I did keep all the items my biggest concern with Stitch Fix so far is it looks like they chose “safe” items that could be found at stores like the Gap. Which isn’t necessarily bad, but I did choose their “Adventurous” option on the style profile and I hope that the next selections are a little more personalized and adventurous.
