August Issue: Frank & Oak Academy

(all text in burgundy is clickable)

Even though summer isn’t over, (Yes!!!) it’s already August. Many of us are not headed back to school, we still think of this time as the beginning of the autumn transition. Some of us still adopt the “back to school” mentality and start to plan their fall clothing, travel and wishes of next summer. Frank & Oak is releasing their Academy issue today, August 1st to help get guys everywhere get ready for the early summer to fall transition. Without letting the summer partying end to soon, it is (almost) time to think about making that transition with some staples for your fall wardrobe. Think light knits, blazers, rep ties, rugby style shirts, button-ups and henley style shirts this fall from Frank & Oak. The pieces in this month’s issues have a slightly preppy and utility feel to them. Below are a few editorial shots from their August campaign, where Frank & Oak shows use how to go back to school like a man (or just go back to work with some style).

    Nice work. Who’s the model and the photographer? I like the “Story”.

    Does anyone have experience with Frank & Oak shirts? I’m tempted to grab some because of the great price point, but I’m worried that they won’t be slim enough to fit well.

      Hello Hon,

      I have several shirts and blazers (both fitting quite well). What’s you normal shirt size?

      am a 40 chest, 16 neck, and 34/35 arm. The fit of their large dress shirts and polos are perfect on me. Arm holes are nice and high, sleeve length is great. The sleeves and body are both slim. I would say somewhere between the Express 1MX modern fit and their Fitted shirts, without the unusual short sleeves. They offer the Hunt Club, which allows you to order and try on cloths free of charge and free shipping both ways.

    Sabir, what are your shirt measurements? I ordered a few shirts recently, and I’m excited. I end up tailoring almost everything except a few shirts I’ve gotten at Express and the slim fit from J. Crew.

    I’m 5’8″-5’9″ and weigh in a little over 140lbs. I have a waist around a 29-30″ I think. I usually buy a 14-14.5 collar size with a sleeve length of 32-33. My casual shirts run from xs to s at most stores. I bought smalls and F&O. Do you think I’ll need to taper the sides? Also scored a cotton navy blazer.

      Hi Eddy,

      The fit of the shirts should be spot on for you. If anything you may need some tapering depending on the waist of the shirt. Congrats on snagging a blazer as well.

      My shirt size is: 15.5 neck, 18 shoulders, 32 waist. 33.5 sleeve and 19 chest (arm pit to arm pit). Length that I prefer is a 27.5 to 28.5.

        OMG, the shirt and jacket fit perfect. No tailoring! I’m a believer now, especially at the price point. I will say the button stance on the jacket is a bit high, but I can live with it. Thanks for the recommendation of Frank & Oak!
