I've used StitchFix and found it to be a good service, but I really only need so many clothes. Got a couple of boxes and paused my account.

I tend to run everything I have in to the ground before replacing it, so I'm probably not their ideal customer.

It's not just StitchFix. I subscribe to stuff on Amazon but it's hard to anticipate your real needs. Therefore I now have way too many Swiffer replacements and not enough condoms.

I was outfitted for a period drama at one point. Nice fella with a huge wardrobe to pull from. I mentioned that I had a hard time finding older mens clothing. He said that menswear really hasn't changed too much in 100 years, and men tend to wear things until they're tattered rags. Therefore, not a lot of old men's clothing out there.

I haven't bought anything other than underwear in 3 years.

which reminds me of a line in the book "Donny Brasco"

"hey... it's the clownzo with the holey underwears."

You may now safely continue your day.

I just bought some pants from Old Navy for $13. I'm sure they'll be rags in a year.

My cousin worked for Nordstrom doing Trunk Club, and mrs mcmnky signed up. Her professional wardrobe was due for a refresh, and having someone who knew her style helped.

But even before 2020 and she switched to working from home, it had really run its course. Unless you're the type of wasteful person who's continually buying clothes, these things have a limited utility. Even if you're starting from naked, you'll have a fully stocked closet in under a year.

I'm guessing most people can do with a 6 month refresh every 5 years or so.

So unless they're putting a lot of effort into new customer acquisition or have a large market of those people who wear every outfit once and are constantly buying new clothes, it's a market that is naturally limited.

You can jerk off in to a sock. They're washable.

Box fatigue? How about dumb wasteful consumerism stressed out?

I had to pull out a wedding suit a few weeks ago and it doesn't fit. All my custom suits, slacks, shirts have to be tailored since I lost a bunch of weight.

Not that farkers can relate but I still request sympathy. Sympathize!
