Recently Stitch Fix launched Stitch Fix Men -- so now the guys in our lives can have stylist-picked fashion delivered to their door.
Let's be real. Fewer men probably will admit to loving fashion. I have, however, known quite a number of guys that are really into it, and honestly they dress so fabulous. Cheers to these guys! They like to try new trends and enjoy dressing themselves. I appreciate that trait. I can totally relate.
My husband is not one of those men. I married him for many reasons, but his fashion sense was not one of them. Not that he dresses poorly - he is super low-maintenance when it comes to clothing. He buys the same relaxed fit Gap jeans over and over because they fit his "tree trunk thighs." He owns three sweaters at a time that he wears every winter in rotation to parties. To work he wears dress pants from Express and button-down dress shirts that usually bought on sale at Jos A. Banks or given to him as Christmas gifts from his parents.
Clothes shopping is something that happens maybe once a year for him. Out of necessity.
Any fashion trends he tries are wholly because I have suggested it.
Okay - now you have an idea of my husband's approach to fashion.
Such a good man. So he signed up for Stitch Fix Men, created a profile, and scheduled a Fix. Solely because he knew it would bring me joy...
...and it did! When his box arrived it was almost as fun as when mine does. (Check out all my past Fixes here!)
I wasn't sure whether I would take any photos of his items...but he surprisingly let me take some shots of him wearing them! Again...the things he does for me. Don't worry, this photo shoot only lasted about fifteen minutes, so he didn't suffer too long!
#1 Zach Straight Leg Jean (Mavi)
#2 Essential Wash Long Sleeve Shirt (Hawker Rye)
The forest green checked shirt is more casual than his other "work shirts" so that was a bonus! I could see him wearing this for date nights with the jeans, and it was comfy. However, while he liked it, it just didn't seem like something he would wear often enough...so it was a return.
Item #3 : La Grande Cotton Cashmere V Neck Sweater (Commerce)
#4 Nathan Heathered Baseball Henley (by Tailor Vintage)
#5 Kit Ultra Move Blazer (Indigo Move)
|this photo epitomizes how uncomfortable he was. love that face!|
|I love those big arms and shoulders...just hard to fit them comfortably in a trendy blazer.|
Hubby's thoughts about Stitch Fix were mixed. Since he is not really that into fashion there was not much excitement in it for him. He does like the items he kept -- but didn't think he really had enough time to decide. (He had five days since the weekend gives you some extra time.) He felt he needed a full week. For me, three days is more than enough since I can easily find time (or will prioritize time) to try them on with other things in my wardrobe.
He says he will get another Fix - maybe in a year! Yep. That is my Hubby. He could take it or leave it.
If you feel like your man could use a little dose of fashion in his life, or if he is one of those guys that loves fashion but doesn't necessarily have a bunch of time to shop, he may want to try Stitch Fix! Send him this link to get started, or click on the link below. Also, a Stitch Fix gift card would be a fun idea for any fashion-lover in your life! I've received them on several occasion - such a nice surprise!
Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
We are hosting the big meal again at our home this year, so I am grateful and excited for that.
I hope everyone has a lovely holiday full of delicious food and quality time with those you love!
