This month in style: September's 4 essential styles

Words— Frank And Oak staff

Merino wool sweaters that can withstand the washing machine (unless you want to stay friends with your dry cleaner), luxe leather and suede boots built for the season, a fresh take on suiting, a traditional tartan reimagined for today, plus fine cotton pieces that strike a cord. Here’s our edit of what’s new for men and women in the month of September.



1. Machine-washable Merino sweaters

We know this seems like it goes against everything we were ever taught, but we've finally found a way to combine the luxurious softness of Merino wool and the easy care of machine washing, sans the shrinkage.


Features Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® which ensures that these garments contain no known harmful chemicals.



2. Fashionable fall footwear





Those sneakers and open-toed flats will only get you so far into fall. Give fall the boot and reach for a sturdy pair of leather Chelsea boots or block heels to get you through the dicey weather ahead.




3. Fall suiting

Nobody wears a suit to work anymore – yet more men are wearing a suit outside the office (i.e. when they don't have to. We feel this in a big way and we have the suits to prove it. From windowpane flannel to traditional wool sharkskin – we've got a suit for you. Ditch the tie and suit up in an exciting new way this fall.



4. Corduroy

These new autumnal styles are made from a fine, luxurious corduroy. While we’ve based our designs on throwback Ivy League style, we’ve also introduced colourways in slim cuts that’ll make you look decidedly modern.
