    Is Frank & Oak that company sends you clothes and you return what you don't like? I know I was recently reading about some new company with that business model, but I can't find much from Frank & Oak's website without registering.

      @Alan, Frank & Oak offers that as their 'Hunt Club' but you can purchase items a la carte as well.


      I just registered to check out the blazers but they apparently are out because when I click on the 'Wear A Jacket Everywhere' headline it is empty.

        Something like this might work for you:

          @Vespa I also just signed up and it is out. A shame too

          Hopefully they restock or get some more in!

            You could take a look at Boden. I've never gotten anything from them, but they seem to make several different patterned options.

            for example:

              I do like that Frank and Oak sahara blazer as well as the dark burgundy one in the "wear a jacket everywhere" picture. Waiting for my "membership" to go through.


              @hdm Not crazy about that boden windowpane but the unstructured navy and camel are intriguing. Thanks.

                I went ahead and registered for Frank & Oak, but I have no idea how long it'll take to get let in.

                  I got in but the blazers are sold out. Really unfortunate because I would definitely have picked up that Bordeaux one. Talked to someone on the live chat who said they could be restocked sometime in the next week or two but no word when and probably will be gone quickly. I put a reminder on my calendar to get on and shop April 1st for the next release first thing in the morning.

                    If you're waiting for your account to get activated and want to cheat, just use the referral link and open up two more dummy accounts with extra/fake e-mail addresses. I opened the link in different browsers I have installed so I didn't have to worry about cookies.

                      Paul Stuart has some awesome blazers/SCs in my opinion. They are super premium priced, but I'd say more readily available on eBay than Kiton, etc. Even used, they don't come cheap, but there are deals to be found. In my limited exposure, Paul Stuart is my favorite brand (If I can lump all the products under one brand even with the collaborations they do).


                      There was one in particular that captured my heart and imagination but it seems to not be on the website anymore. A few examples:

                          Check out Yoox... a little better prices for premium stuff. Also look at lesser known labels in the US like Hackett and Daks (like Bergdorf and Nordstrom):

                          Also makers like Corneliani and Caruso... They make for other labels like Polo RL, RLPL, and Brooks Brothers GF... This one is cool and "only" around $329 with the 15% off:

                          Boglioli is pretty famous for unstructured natural shoulder blazers:

                            Ah, I would have totally bought that Frank & Oak jacket, but I forgot about the site. I hope that's typical of their monthly offerings and not just an extra nice item to get people excited about the launch of the site.

                                Nice memory, Nicholas! Not quite Kiton quality, but the pattern is definitely in the right ballpark. The sale price is an added bonus.
