“We get to know our families tastes and preferences, and send typically 15 items of the season’s sharpest styles in a carefully-curated Box of ShortStitch’s Boxes of Yay! We do not charge a fee for our styling service and the only thing parents have to pay for is the clothes they keep. Anything else can be returned for free”, the couple explains.

The next step for Shortstitch will be developing the brand range to introduce ‘special occasion’ boxes. Anything from holiday box to party/special occasion box and outdoor box.
