If you’re a fashion-forward Montrealer, you’ve either heard of or shopped at Frank & Oak. The company that was founded in Montreal was just named as one of the 10 most innovative companies of 2015. Frank & Oak is only still in its infancy after being founded in 2012 by Ethan Song and Hicham Ratnani.
Three years after opening for business in Montreal’s Mile-End district—the inspiration for Frank & Oak’s urban style— Frank & Oak is set to dominate the fashion world with its cyber portal. Although Frank & Oak’s trendy brick and mortar, Montreal Mile-End location is decked out with a barber shop, coffee counter, and staffed by savvy style consultants, the lion’s share of its business comes from its online sales— it’s bread and butter. In fact, most of Frank & Oak’s business comes from the United States through the company’s online store.
Frank & Oak is more than just a store. In an article in Forbes Magazine, co-founder Ethan Song said, “our vision is not only to be a purveyor of goods or products, but to be your lifestyle guide.” Frank & Oak’s clothing lines are constantly evolving and you’ll never see the same thing repeated.
If you haven’t been exposed to Frank & Oak, you’re not too late! Frank & Oak is putting Montreal on the fashion map and you have the unique opportunity to travel to the Mile-End to see for yourself why this company is mentioned with the likes of Alibaba, and Eataly as one of the 10 most innovative companies of 2015! If not, then go online to check out the newest trends and stay fashion-forward.
