Frank and Oak began as a webshop that offered on-trend but inexpensive menswear. Now, it has morphed into a magazine and a fashion subscription service that caters to both men and women.

Frank and Oak decided to reduce their negative impact by increasing their sustainable fashion options and adopting more eco-friendly processes. They also have a “no commitment” approach that allows prospective members a free month to test out their service. Just like the previous services, a questionnaire is involved and members can preview upcoming offerings then approve, customize, or decline that month’s selections. Subscribers have seven days to decide what to keep. There is no monthly fee and there is a $25 styling fee only if you return everything from the box
