We're enjoying the arms race in producing affordable, quality menswear: whether it's Japan's Uniqlo recently setting up shop offline and online in the U.S., or online-only retailers offering curated, basic, limited-edition goods. Frank & Oak, which just reached its 1-year birthday, is one good example of the latter.
Frank & Oak has its own roster of style curators, and for Valentine's Day they're offering three-piece "casual date" and "chic date" packages for $75. They include either a flannel shirt and hoodie or button-down shirt and slim wool sweater, matched with a scarf (don't forget to bring your own pants). And even if you can't get them in time for V-Day, you will have other dates, right?
You'll have to trust the site's curators with the exact pieces, but you can create a profile and browse their collection to have an idea of what you'll be getting. You'll find their shirts, sweaters, pants and jackets all hovering in the $50 range.
I bought one checkered, long-sleeve shirt from Frank & Oak last year for $45, and I found it to be a good, cheaper alternative to the casual button-downs I've bought from Ben Sherman or Shades of Grey. Expect slim fits and slim, soft collars. I appreciated not having to get it tailored, unlike most of the shirts I buy (I'm a skinny dude).
If you like trusting others with your shopping, Frank & Oak has a Hunt Club that offers personalized selections with free shipping and free try-ons at home.
