Frank & Oak vertically integrates top-tier fashion

  • 03 August 2012

Vertical integration — that's how visionary companies excel. Just look at Carnegie Steel, which owned everything from mills to mines, or Apple, which manages everything from the thickness of the iPhone's glass to how many malnourished Foxconn employees polish it.

Get that level of quality control for you wardrobe, but without that level of labor violations, with Frank & Oak.

Recently launched, Frank & Oak proffers a new line of stylish, themed duds every month — all curated, designed, and manufactured in-house by a crack team of top-tier designers/creative types. The end result? High-quality casual and business wares at ridiculously fair prices ($25-$50 per piece.)

To buy, simply sign up for a free membership (see below) and browse that month's theme—for August, it’s “Academy,” a fall/university-inspired collection of textured chambray shirts, washed-cotton ties, rugby-inspired polos and striped Oxfords.

Or, if you’d rather not pick and choose, subscribe to F&O’s “Hunt Club” and receive 1-3 clothing items per month (including exclusives), hand-selected by the curators to match your fashion profile. Keep what you like, send back what you don’t.

Frank & Oak caps its membership, but for the next 24 hours a limited number of InsideHook readers can sign up (use the code IHACCESS) and vertically integrate themselves for free.
