The online personal styling service attributed the weakness primarily to a decline in its number of active customers.

Stitch Fix ended its recent quarter with 3.3 million active clients – down 0.5 million versus last year and 0.1 million sequentially. According to Matt Baer – its Chief Executive who took the helm in June:

I have spent time assessing our business, operating model, and organisation … and identifying opportunities to both optimise in the short term and reimagine for the future.

Stitch Fix stock is now down close to 50% versus its year-to-date high.
