While perusing Brooklyn-based Oak's online store, we found an interesting new trend in menswear: The all-in-one (or, as we see it, the lazy man's style starter-kit.) First, we spotted a cotton henley from 3.1 Philip Lim, with a sewn-in scarf at the neck. Then we eyed a black tee from Ksubi, complete with a three-button vest attached to the front. Sure, the shirt/scarf combo will catch the Sartorialist's attention (and the vest that of Kate Moss wannabes), but these two-for-one pieces seem to cater to a set that's either too clueless or too careless to put together something truly original. They could also be really hungover. And when you factor in the price ($288 for Philip Lim's creation, $110 for Ksubi's), it's hard not to find the 'prepackaged-casual' movement a bit ridiculous - you can put your own scarf and shirt together for about $75. This definitely redefines 'effortless cool.' --SARAH MUEHLBAUER
