FRNKOW is a luxury fashion brand for men and was founded in 2020 by the siblings Nadja and Frank Lin.

FRNKOW offers minimalistic menswear and underwear combining classic designs with a sensual approach.

The basis is always classic men’s fashion, which is enriched with flowing fabrics and soft silhouettes. FRNKOW bridges the gap between comfort and elegance with the claim that the garments can be worn in every situation, whether on it’s the way to the beach or at a seated dinner.

FRNKOW is a non-seasonal brand and produces in a limited quantity. The product range includes high quality handsewn menswear, underwear, home- and loungewear.

Founded in 2020

Founded only weeks before the global pandemic and all its economic effects, the young label’s start was very different to what the two founders had planned. However, FRNKOW launched its first FRNKOW by FRANK LIN collection as well as the first FRNKOW Essentials in November 2020 followed by various features in prestigious print and online magazines and national German Television.

FRNKOW has dropped more collections in 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024 expecting the next collection to be released in fall 2024. The FRNKOW Essentials assortment has been continuously expanded and now consists of underwear, home- and loungewear.

FRNKOW Collections

The tailoring-line is the heart of FRNKOW and epitomizes the creativity and vision of creative director and founder Frank Lin with first class quality and sophisticated menswear. All collections are designed and developed by Frank Lin and his tailoring team in their design studio in Stuttgart and manufactured in Italy. Every single piece of the collection goes through a long and elaborated development process until it fulfils the self-given demands on design, fit, comfort and workmanship.

FRNKOW Essentials

FRNKOW Essentials are the Home- and Loungewear line and include underwear, tanktops, home shorts, T-shirts and sweater. All Essentials are made of outstanding and long-living fabrics. They have very good fit and comfort as well as fine details that can often only be seen on second sight. FRNKOW Essentials are meant to be worn every day beyond season and have a long durability. To ensure fair production and a faithful partnership, FRNKOW is working together with prestigious producers from Germany and the EU.

Hand-Made in Germany | Made in EU | Sustainability

For FRNKOW, sustainability isn’t just a catchword but naturally implanted in the brand values. To counteract the short-living nature of fashion and overproduction in the fashion industry, FRNKOW collections follow the ideas of a Zero Waste Production and are made of high quality Dead Stock Fabrics from Italian and French fashion brands to give Left Over Fabrics a second life.

All Essentials are exclusively produced by long-established partners within the European Union to reduce transportation routes and thus minimize CO2 emissions.

The Underwear Essentials, for instance, are woven from a GOTs certified stretch-cotton knitted by a family-run textile manufacturer in Germany showcasing over a century’s worth of expertise in crafting underwear. Its GOTs certified waistband is made in Germany and is of Oeko-Tex Standard 100. That’s why FRNKOW can ensure German accuracy, fair working conditions and best materials and workmanship for its underwear line.
