Frank And Oak Style Plan Fall Denim Review October 2018
When you first sign up for this subscription, you fill out a quick style profile that captures your sizing preferences and your sense of style. (Choose from Casual, Classic, and Creative). Then, you can pick whether you’d like a monthly or a bi-monthly plan and set your budget for each box (under $150 or $150+).
Before your box ships, you get an email inviting you to hop in and preview your order. The page that opens up has about 12 products total on the page, and the three products set to ship in my order are at the top of the page and marked with green check marks. The plan includes three items, but you can choose more than three if you’d like. The prices are all discounted for you, so it’s a deal compared to just shopping the regular site.
You can uncheck the items they’ve picked for you if something else catches your eye. This month, I stuck with the shirt they chose for me, but I decided to try swap the other shirt and jumper out for two versions of Frank and Oak denim jeans. I’ve noticed that recently, Frank and Oak includes “Featured” styles in a section below the items curated just for you. From what I gather, the Featured pieces are new or noteworthy items that don’t fit as explicitly into whatever category you’ve picked for your plan. I’ve had luck in the past with Frank and Oak denim, so I wanted to give some of their other trend-conscious cuts a try.
Here’s the invoice for the three pieces I ended up with, plus the return instructions. (If you didn’t know before, Frank And Oak is a Canadian company, which explains all the French you’ll see on their packaging and paperwork!)
Okay, let’s see what I got!
Nina Wide-Leg Jean in Indigo, Size 30 – Retail Value $79.50, Member Price $69.50
I love the shape of these jeans, but wow do I ever need to size up! I typically wear a 10 in jeans and my waist is narrow compared to my hips, so I’ve had luck with Frank and Oak’s high-waisted styles. (I got a 30 in their Stevie jeans earlier this year and I wear that pair, like, every other day of my life, haha!) But the cut of these jeans is much narrower through the hips and waist, which I didn’t expect from jeans that fit so freely through the legs. I do think part of the issue is that these jeans are made with 100% cotton—that makes them wonderfully sturdy, but also kind of stiff right out of the box.
Frank and Oak does offer these jeans in a 31, which might suit me better. I think these raw-hemmed jeans are just too tight through the hips to work for me in a 30, even if the fabric ends up relaxing a bit. Fingers crossed the 31s work better! I love the color and the 90s-ish silhouette. Plus, the denim is made with their Hydro-Less process, which reduced water wasted in manufacturing.
Patti Straight Leg Jean in Medium Indigo, Size 30 – Retail Value $79.50, Member Price $69.50
Now, these jeans are COMFORTABLE. They’re 99% cotton and 1% spandex, so there’s a little stretch there, plus they feel much more worn-in/soft than other jeans I’ve tried from Frank and Oak.
Because the jeans have a little more give to them, they aren’t quite as flattering, I don’t think. The ever-so-slightly slouchier fabric doesn’t create the same clean, smooth silhouette that other pairs have, plus the light wash doesn’t look as sleek. But that’s me being super picky. They’re pretty tremendously comfortable, and they look super cute with the ankles rolled up a few times. Definitely a new everyday jean!
Wrap Top in Navy, Size Medium – Retail Value $44.50, Member Price $39.50
Let’s talk about the top you’ve been seeing me wearing! I’m smitten with this navy number. It’s got a wrap neckline and a close-fitting silhouette that gives it a balletic quality. I untucked it in the second photo to show you where the hem lays, but I think it looks best on my body when it’s tucked into something high-waisted. It’s made from 57% cotton, 38% modal, and 5% spandex, so it’s breathable, stretchy, and soft. I hope they offer it to me in different colors in the future! I want to stock up!
Verdict: I’ll have to exchange that one pair of jeans, but I had a lot of fun experimenting with Frank and Oak’s fall denim trends this month. I love supporting a brand that prioritizes things like sustainable manufacturing practices. Even with the jeans that didn’t quite fit, I could tell that the quality was awesome. For what it’s worth, all of the items I’ve gotten so far from Frank and Oak have held up beautifully. I wear the jeans and tops all the time, and I’m not too proud to say that I’m not the most careful laundry-doer—nonetheless, everything is in tip-top shape, especially the jeans. I’m excited to start showing off my new finds!
