Maybe He’s Born With It, Maybe It’s Stitch Fix
If you haven’t yet heard of Stitch Fix it’s about time you did, especially since it’s been making a lot of headlines lately after going public. Stitch Fix has been doing great on the stock market, which is no surprise considering they reported sales of $977 million this past year! Yes, that’s million with a capital M! The company’s founder, Katrina Lake is one of the youngest women to make Forbes’ annual “America’s Richest Self-Made Women” list. Lake, a Harvard graduate started Stitch Fix in 2016 and has brought the revolutionary shopping experience to millions of men and women of all shapes and sizes. Wait, now we’re getting ahead of ourselves. We haven’t even talked about what Stitch Fix is exactly and why it’s so special.
If you thought Stitch Fix was just another e-commerce store you’d be gravely mistaken. Stitch Fix is an entirely personalized shopping experience. Stitch Fix uses personal stylists to craft subscription boxes based on your lifestyle and spending preferences. First, Stitch Fix asks you to create a profile and introduce your style, fit and price preferences in their detailed Style Quiz. Second, Stitch Fix uses their professional, personal stylists to curate five pieces for you which are sent straight to your door. Third, you try on all the picks, give your stylist feedback so they can offer you better selections in the future and you pay for only what you keep. Fourth, you send back whatever you don’t like to Stitch Fix in a free return envelope. Fifth and finally, you schedule on demand or automatic deliveries so you get clothes only when you want! It is a genius system that makes you wonder why no one thought of it sooner. While there may be other clothing subscription services out there, there are none that do it better than Stitch Fix, especially for men.
Stitch Fix has over 1,000 brands in their warehouse ready to be shipped based on your style, size, and budget. They curate a constantly-rotating range of manufacturers. Some are menswear collections you know and love like 7 For All Mankind, Original Penguin, Ben Sherman, and Scotch and Soda, as well as emerging men’s brands that are known for their exceptional quality such as Nifty Genius. Stitch Fix is a great way for you to step outside your comfort zone and try brands and styles that you normaly wouldn’t wear but look great on you nonetheless.
