What to wear this month: Our favourite October styles

Words— Frank And Oak staff

Cruelty-free, sustainable performance outerwear that won’t leave you out in the cold, all the plaids and flannels you could possibly desire, plus layers that will bring you to new levels as fast as the days are shrinking. Here’s our edit of what’s new and coming soon for men and women in the month of October.


1. Outerwear that’s not down with down




A good winter coat is an investment– that’s why you need to pick the right one for your needs.  With 3M™ featherless insulation, we’ve designed each coat for optimal performance under unique lifestyles and conditions so you’ll stay cool but won’t freeze. Available October 4th. 



2. “Is that velvet?”




Satin Velvet Mini Wrap Dress - Buckthorn Brown, Satin Velvet Bomber Jacket (coming soon)


It’s 2018 and we are here to tell you it is more than OK to live George Costanza’s dream of being draped in velvet. Each rich velvet piece has been designed to be worn day to night, dressed up or down. So go ahead; you deserve it.  




3. Our classic Jasper Oxford Shirt – in fall form.




The Brushed Jasper Oxford - Olive Stripes, Bouclé Grandad Cardigan - Mixed Grey


Our OG Jasper Oxford is back – but built especially for the colder winter ahead from soft brushed cotton that will give you that extra bit of protection when the mercury starts to dip, without sacrificing style. Find a colour or pattern that isn't in your closet yet and fill in your winter wardrobe before it the next snowfall. 



4. Modern-day heritage




Sherpa Lined Wool-Blend Shirt-Jacket - Dark Red Plaid, Bouclé Crewneck Sweater - Mixed Camel,


Heavy flannels, big plaids, cosy cardigans, and other #menswear staples are back! Whether they ever really left is debatable, but it’s amazing what a little distance can do for one’s judgement. We need them now, more than ever and they’re here to carry us through the season, no questions asked.


We're particularly fond of our checkered flannel shirts, bouclé crewneck sweaters, and waffle-knit cardigans



5. Emotionally and sartorially ready for fall




Cinched Double-Breasted Tweed Blazer - Green Heather, The Eleonore Tweed Pant, Wool-Blend Cable Sweater - Soft Teal, White Vans


Yes, summer was good. Like maybe too good? But it’s back to work now so we all may as well look good doing it. Breathe in the crisp air, reach for hefty tweeds, maybe some heeled boots, and we’ll see you all by the break room coffee machine.
