Luckily the aircon was on high for the guys at the Oak sale preview last night since menswear, up to 80% off, was definitely heavy on the cold weather gear. But it's always a great time to snap up deals on the off-season, and we're getting kind of sick of bright and happy looking summer-wear anyway (OK, not really, but just trying to make you feel better about it).
On the menswear racks, we spotted Tim Hamilton Redux sweaters for $100, Petar Petrov grey sweaters with black diagonal nylon patches also for $100, Wrath Arcane asymmetrical zip front track jackets for $50 (originally $198), AZ Collection shiny puffy jackets for $40, and Oak moleskin skinny pants for $50. If you're looking for flannel and plaid, you are so in the right place. There are Hyden Yoo lightweight plaids for $40 to $60 and Acne black and white plaid for $40, amongst others. Hyden Yoo has some lighter weight items like $25 tees and $45 short-sleeve plaid button downs. There are also tons of shoes for the gents, including Raf Simmons wide velcro strap kicks in black and cream for $30 a pair.
Staffers say they may still have "bits and pieces" in the back, but for the most part, everything is on the floor. As mentioned in the ladies' post, the sale is cash-only, so hit the ATM beforehand. Also, there is no designated fitting room, so please be gentlemanly when sharing the mirror in the back with the ladies.
