Shop Talk: Oak + Fort Opens in Calgary

Oak + Fort has always drawn a great number of young professionals for its carefully curated collections, from their inception online in 2010 to their first and second retail locations in Vancouver and Edmonton, respectively. For those currently addicted to the store, and also the soon to be fans, rejoice!

No longer do YPs need to make the trek north for their sophisticated and well-priced workwear – Oak + Fort has officially landed in Calgary’s Chinook Mall as of August 1. In tune with the current movements in art and culture, the pieces reflect uncomplicated, chic minimalism not to be distracted by ever-changing trends. Oak + Fort has a strong penchant for quality pieces that surpass the typical seasonal confines we have here in Calgary, which is why you need to run, not walk, to go visit the store. And don’t sweat the thought of what piling your closet full of these classic clothes might cost you, because they’re definitely affordable. Just in time for your next closet purge (or, like us, don’t wait), here are a few favourite pieces for any young professional’s wardrobe:

Printed Dress 3050-CWDCH1; $98

Jumpsuit B01; $158

Tunic B15; $48

Blouse 2052-CWBCG9; $78 

Since these pieces are sure to have whetted your clothing appetite, but you aren’t quite lucky enough to have an Oak + Fort near you, don’t fret: you can still order online at As for the gents reading this, Oak + Fort will soon have the same clean-cut philosophy heading your way with a men’s line… so hold tight. In the meantime, make sure you check out Oak + Fort’s Facebook and Instagram pages to stay up-to-date with their new arrivals, customer favourites and styling tips.
