There's a saying a mom portfolio would outperform a manager's portfolio and this has mostly been true from my observation. $sfix $pins $etsy

They're a company that helps you determine what to wear for a price. According to wiki:

Stitch Fix is a personal styling service that sends individually picked clothing and accessories items for a one-time styling fee. Customers fill out a survey online about their style preferences. A stylist at the company picks five items to send to the customer. Stylists pick items based on a customer's survey answers and any access the customer gives them to their social media outlets such as Pinterest. The customer schedules a date to receive their items, which is referred to as a "Fix". Once the shipment is received, the customer has three days to choose to keep the items or return some or all of them. If the customer keeps at least one item, the initial styling fee is credited towards the cost of the item. In addition to the styling fee being credited, if the customer decides to keep all five items, the customer receives 20% off the total cost of the items. Customers choose the shipping frequency, such as every two weeks, once a month, or every two months. The company also supports integration with Pinterest boards, allowing customers to add photos of fashion looks that they like. These boards may be viewed by a Stitch Fix stylist.

I couldn't see myself using it. I also can't see this working for longer term. The reason is this user experience would get less interesting over time. You would end up just cancelling the service because you have no time to return the packages or picking what to keep or what to return. Or it could be simply that your wardrobe has limited size and you don't really need that many new cloths every month. Also, according to this website their price per item is $55 on average, and that puts the price per package to be around $250 - $300, which is definitely not cheap.

So they're kind of your personalized clothing stylists. But recently because of the virus you don't even need to go out to work. So if I am a subscriber of the service this would be one of the first things that I cut. This is why I don't think their service would do well in the next while.

They also give you bad earnings prospect during their recent earnings calls. It's still impressive what they have achieved in the past years though.
