GOING BRICK AND MORTAR: Men’s online apparel brand Frank & Oak is set to open a brick-and-mortar flagship site in Toronto on Nov. 13. The company has had pop-up shops and a showroom in the past. The store allows customers to meet with style advisers by appointment. It will also house a Stumptown Coffee Roasters café and a full-service barbershop. The plan is for the store to be open seven days a week, with a space at 2,600 square feet that more than doubles its other showroom site.
The start-up last month closed on a Series B funding round of $15 million. Frank & Oak, which targets men in the creative fields, was co-founded by Ethan Song in 2012. The operation is a vertical one and there is a new collection every month.
