Keen to upgrade your style? Look no further than Stitch Fix.

Launched May 2019, Stitch Fix offers handpicked fashion pieces, selected with our personal preferences and the latest fashion trends in mind.

It’s a subscription service (although you can choose a one-off delivery just to try it out), featuring all of our favourite brands: AllSaints, Jack Wolfskin, Scotch&Soda, Samsoe Samsoe, and many more.

And here’s how it works: first you’ll need to fill in your profile and answer style questions, then your stylist will create a selection of items for a price of £10 (that you later can use for any of the items).

After that, you’ll receive your new style fix.

You only need to pay for what you want to keep, and then send the rest of the items back.

You can set a specific price limit for individual items, and if you decide to keep everything you’ll get a 20 per cent discount for the entire order.

No two Stitch Fix boxes are the same, and you can choose your subscription to be delivered to you monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly or on-demand.

4. The best subscription boxes for men: Harry’s Shave Plan

Harry’s Shave Plan has been around for a while and is still a popular option despite the number of rival shave clubs.

Costing £19 for a batch of eight razors, you can taylor your order to arrive once every two, three or five months, depending on how often you tackle your face fuzz.

We gave the plan a go and we liked the design of the razor and found the grippy handle a joy to use.

The razors also have an edging blade at the top to tackle difficult-to-reach areas of your face.

If you haven’t tried a five-blade razor before, they can take a bit of getting used to, but ultimately, we found we prefer them.

You can try out Harry’s with a free trial set to see if you end up liking the blades or not.

The order also comes with a bottle of foaming gel that smells nicer than a lot of other gels we’ve tried.
