I've been a long time user of both Stylebook and Cladwell and am definitely happier with Stylebook! I like the flexibility of how one inventories their clothing, and the cost per wear feature. I will say, there are two things I think Cladwell does better. One is new outfit suggestions. The shuffle tool in Stylebook has yielded some helpful results, but requires a bit more work on the user’s side. The second thing is the graphics are definitely cleaner in Cladwell, and they seem to do more updates as they are a subscription based model (though it does mean a higher price point, ugh). Lastly, I have some recommendations that I think could make Stylebook even more user friendly!
Keep ability to resize images, even after they’ve been created. You can do this when first adding an item to your closet, but for some reason once it’s in, you can’t resize it again.
Allow an option when deleting an item in a look to replace it. For example, if I want to change the shoes out on a look, it’d be great to be able to more quickly replace them with another item.
And finally, allow archiving of items! Now that I’ve used the app for a while, I have been able to find clothes that I never wear and thus free up space in my closet, yay! But, since I’ve gone through the effort of documenting these items and there may be some sentimental value, it’d be great to archive them so they don’t show up in item stats such as “least worn”, or total closet value but are still saved somewhere. This could also be helpful to see what type of clothes eventually go out of style to further improve purchasing habits. I currently have these items in a separate category of “Remove” but it’d be great to be able to provide another layer of separation.
Thanks! If you’ve gotten this far in the review, I’m surprised!
