Frank & Oak: April Brings Fresh Perspectives


When planning a vacation, the ultimate goal of any getaway is to distance yourself as far as you possibly can from the stresses in your life. For some, that means ditching the routine 9-5 and escaping the hustle and bustle of the city. For Frank & Oak, they’re staying put right where they are and taking a much different type of vacation – a Spring Staycation.

Frank & Oak’s inspiration behind their new April Collection, Fresh Perspectives, came from the idea of looking beyond the known in our cities and uncovering the hidden gems that show the true heart and character of our stomping grounds. Instead of sitting in a beach chair or hiking through the mountains this spring, take a Staycation in style and rediscover your city in some rad Frank & Oak threads.

With spring in the air and warmer temperatures on the horizon, Frank & Oak is transitioning from layers to short sleeves and tees. They’re unique concept of an escape also means that their showcasing bold prints and statement pieces to give you a confident look during your Staycation.

Two fashionable materials that they’re working with this spring are denim and linen. Some of the more popular styles feature a Short-Sleeve Denim Shirt in either blue or black, and a Collarless Short-Sleeve Linen-Blend Shirt in white. Frank & Oak is also well-known for some great printed shirts and this month is no different with their new Fruit Fiesta Printed Short-Sleeve Poplin Shirt in both blue and red. These fun, bright shirts are perfect for sunny weekends and pair well with their Tyler Skinny Stretch Denim Jeans in dark grey and Cotton Twill Hi-Top Sneakers in off-white for a complete, top-to-bottom look.

Frank & Oak’s Lightweight Loose Fit T-Shirts are sure to be one of the hottest selling items from this month’s collection. They’re available in either white heather or black heather, and both are stylish basics that feature a space-dye pattern which has become really popular in men’s street-wear this season. They’re comfortable, lightweight, and they pair well with either the Tyler Skinny Stretch Denim Jeans in black or the Lincoln Twill Pant in kelp.

This “pants-less” craze has gone way overboard recently (We’re looking at you, Alexander Skarsgård) so instead of exploring the city in your boxers, Frank & Oak is dishing out some shorts that’ll make you want to say, “Suns out, thighs out.” Their Long 5-Pocket Slim Shorts in dark grey, dark green, and true black are great options for a day at the ballpark or a stroll through the city. These shorts are Frank & Oak’s famous twill pants cut just above the knee for a slight ease at the thigh and a slim leg opening. Looking for some shorts to go with those new tees? Well then these are the shorts for you.

Depending on where you’re from, it might take a while longer for the weather to transition from winter to spring. Frank & Oak took that into consideration this April, and they’ve made the perfect lightweight jacket for your Staycation. The Water-Resistant Ike Jacket in navy was designed by the army and modernized for the contemporary closet. During this time of the year, April showers are always a possibility. With that in mind, this jacket is constructed with 100% cotton and a water-resistant fabric to keep you warm and dry in any climate.

Frank & Oak delivers new threads and themes each month, so check out their April collection while you can because these styles are guaranteed to sell fast.
