Has anyone had any experience with both Everlane and Frank & Oak?

 

I just discovered Frank & Oak and they look pretty similar to Everlane... except with a broader range of products.

 

Can anyone comment on the comparison of overall quality/fit of these 2 brands?

 

 

While I love the look of the patched cardigans of Everlane, I am looking for more variety besides cashmere.

F&O stuff I got back in May was pretty disappointing - obvious logos on everything, and as an XS/S everything was too baggy. Their blazers are cut really weirdly too. I basically returned everything for credit and ended up just using it all on ties - they had some interesting fabrics.

Size medium t shirts - still small in the chest proportionately?

I'd love a black waxed snap backpack. Make it happen!

I received the new OCBD in the mail a couple days ago. The last batch was too tight in the chest for me, but this is only about .25" larger in pit to pit, so unfortunately I will have to return it. Also noticed that the sleeves are shorter and the collar a little larger.

 

Some quick measurements:

 

Size L

Collar (center of button to center of buttonhole): 16.625"

Half Chest (pit to pit): 22.75"

Half Hips (across bottom hem): 22.75"

Sleeve Length (from shoulder seam): 26.5"

Yoke: 19"

Center Back Length (from bottom of collar): 30.75"

Just got the new OCBD in smoke, size M.

 

To say that I am disappointed would be an understatement. 

I don't want to even imagine how bad the originals were.

 

This would fit... if I wore a sweater underneath. 

It fits like a cereal box would on a toddler. 

 

Now it may be just me... but I am about 5'8-5'9, 155-160lb, 38-40 chest.

For me, overall length is too long, sleeves are too long, sleeves are too puffy/wide, and just felt BOXY in general.

 

I am actually going to wake up early tomorrow just so I can return this thing faster.

3 of my tee's came in

Navy, gray, and white

The white one has a hole on the left side like someone got shanked. A few rips and a hole on the side. This is a first.

I've had experience with both. I got a few Everlane tees early in while they were beginning. Hated the collars. They were huge and made me feel like a dirty girl trying to show off chest to everyone. 

 

Right now I'm on a Frank and Oak rampage as I've found out their XS fits me like a glove so I've been getting a bunch of shirts for work. I'd recommend giving them a shot. Craftsmanship isn't the greatest (loose threads here and there), but it's cheap and convenient.

I was just thinking about ordering too. *sigh*

Went to their (F&O) website and left. Honestly getting annoyed by brands that require memberships to shop their sites. The only reason I bothered with Everlane in this regard is because of this thread and some blogs.

I'm kind of ambivalent about F&O as a whole. They focus on "curated" content and coming out with endless variations of what are essentially the same shirts and pants every month. There's something about the whole operation that smacks a bit too much of GQ style advice.

That said,

- I have one of their flannel shirts, and it's ungodly soft. It also somehow fits slim in spite of having a box pleat.
- I actually like the terry blazer they just came out with. I'm wearing it in a recent WAYWT (from yesterday, I think). I sized down one to a 38.

Relative to Everlane, the buttons and fabric aren't as nice, and the construction isn't necessarily up to par. Everlane has a core set of offerings with gradual product releases that are fine-tuned over time. F&O has a wider variety of products, but they don't seem to put as much thought into the details.

So you bought the wrong size rolleyes.gif... If you haven't bought from them (or any other online shop before) try buying two different sizes.
