Frank & Oak: Montreal online retailer of menswear

Frank & Oak is a Montreal designer and online retailer of menswear - and it has a fairly unique business model.

Its clothing is specifically targeted to young professionals and almost all sales are through its website and mobile apps. Clients build an online profile and Frank & Oak helps them shop relatively painlessly.

Last week, the young company raised $15 million dollars to expand operations. 

Ethan Song is the start-up's co-founder and chief executive. He tells his story to All in a Weekend host Sonali Karnick.
