I have been following Frahm (and Nick in particular.... Not in a stalkerish way, but because of his openness about MH and his ADHD) and finally took the leap and bought a jacket.
Wow!! It is way better than I'd hoped, in terms of fit, quality and well, everything!!
For reference.... I am 5' 10" weigh 12 stone and am wearing a Medium.
Customer service is second to none too.
If you are considering buying a jacket then buy Frahm.... You will not be disappointed
I think it's safe to post a review now that I've had the jacket for a few months. I'd really looked forward to receiving my 4 Seasons Waterproof Jacket, and it it's easily been worth the few months' wait. My old waterproof (well, not so much as waterproof recently, but resistant) served me well enough for a long time, but I remember the delight when I first put on the new Frahm jacket in a rainshower, and being able to just shake off the drops of water on its surface as I got back to cover. It's also supremely comfortable. The inner lining is soft and comfortable on the skin; my partner has a very sensitive skin, and even she enjoys wearing the jacket wearing just a sleeveless top underneath. And the jacket simply oozes quality. And in my view, though you can't call it a cheap jacket as such, it is an extremely good deal all things considered - you get a lot of bang for your buck, and it at least feels like it'll last ages. I'm now looking forward to having to replace a jacket because the replacement will be another Frahm.
Really nice detailing, and excellent quality. A lovely weight as well - more “jacket” than overshirt, which is exactly what I was after. A very smart look as well! It’s my first Frahm jacket, but won’t be my last.
Now I don't normally do reviews. Simply because I generally take no notice of them myself as I'd rather just give things a try and see what I think. But this. This is quality. It's exactly as described. It's made to last, it looks really good, it's different and it actually fits. It fits everywhere. I was so impressed with the quality and design that I wanted to tell people and like a lot of Frahm customers I've bought more jackets on pre order. On pre-order! I'd never normally do this in a month of Sundays. But this Frahm and I absolutely would for these jackets. If you're like me about reviews, you'll give it a go anyway because it looks good, but if you aren't like me and need a little nudge, look no further you will not be disappointed in any way.
I bought this as a gift for my partner. It’s a fantastic jacket, wonderful quality and fits perfectly. The only problem is all his other jackets don’t compare well!
Came across this brand when googling for a lightweight jacket. Was intrigued about the owner and his mission to reduce waste and fast fashion through preordering, make clothes that last and then found out he donates a portion of each jacket sale towards charities that help with mental health.
After many months of pontificating in 2020 during peak pandemic and then missed out on 2021's preorder plus I couldn't even buy one at full price in my size and colour (French blue). So I finally decided enough was enough and put in an order for my jacket in August 2021 and saved a generous 20%.
It felt like a long wait and I was concerned that large might be too large based on their sizing charts as I usually am a medium for most clothing manufacturers. But it was worth the eight months wait. It fits wonderfully, I love the weight of the cloth, and because I will end up layering when it gets colder, the slightly longer than I'm used to sleeves, will be fine. I've since discovered lots of thoughtfully tailored aspects, like hand pockets that are positioned perfectly, and side vents that help when sitting in the car. I imagine this jacket will be a lifelong companion on my travels both near and far.
Final sidebar. Like Victor Kiam and Remington...I liked the jacket so much, I invested in the company!
I took a gamble on ordering my first Frahm jacket. Expensive, but maybe not... if it delivered a quality jacket that would last for many years....
Okay, this jacket is serious quality. A great fit, although my only minor quibble would be that it is slightly tight around my hips even though I'm slim. I can't afford to put weight on! But this jacket is made for real bodies with a slim looking fit that leaves room for top layers underneath if needed. I love the slightly long sleeves that can be buttoned above the wrist if needed or allowed to slightly cover and shelter hands in cold weather.
Top quality outer material and seamed lining. Perfectly positioned hand warmer pockets and lots of extra pockets for storage too. Quality zip and poppers. And what a hood - the best fitting and most comfortable ever. This kit is clearly going to last years and look good.
Light rain just beads off, haven't had a chance to try the jacket in a downpour yet but I'd be very surprised if there are any issues. Comfortable, looks good and a pleasure to wear.
I'd say to anyone thinking of buying this that the marketing actually matches the quality and usability of the product; it's not an exaggeration. Great job and I think I've made a good investment.
Lightweight Workers Jacket - Large, Dark blue with red details.
Fits me absolutely perfectly - I’m a 42 chest.
So nicely made and lovely material - looks and feels a bit like Ventille cotton - and cut so well it feels tailored. Very cool looking jacket indeed and I’m already thinking of getting another at some point. I didn’t even know there was such a thing as having smaller buttons behind the main buttons to strengthen them, but apparently there is, and this jacket has them. Better than expected and I was already expecting it to be very nice. Pricey? Hmmm. Not cheap, but not crazy money either, especially with the pre-order price. Good value when you consider the quality, I think.
My friend keeps trying to make off with it.
It’s my second Frahm, love it.
I don’t think it will be my last, possibly the equivalent of my wife’s apparent handbag habit
I have had my jacket for 6 months now and it has become my suit of armour, yes it is close fitting (but not too close) but it looks just so oooh. Any way you know all that. What I wanted to say is that I decided to take the plunge and give it a wash, to say this made me nervous would be a massive understatement, if the jacket shrank even a little bit it would be ruined. I read and re-read the not flappy label and ensured my wife had the correct washing soap stuff and I double checked that she had the machine thing on the right temperature setting (she hated me doing this by the way) and in it went. After an agonising wait it finished and out it came, I then put it in the tumble drier myself and set it on a delicate heat (I was proud of myself for working out how to do all this). Then I literally watched it go round checking every 30 minutes to see if it was dry. I got it out slightly damp and put it on a hanger to fully dry in the garden (I never ironed it but it did not need it thankfully as I don't know how the iron works and by now my wife was fed up with my stressing over my jacket - after all that it still fitted and had not shrunk at all (phew and phew again) AND it no longer had shiny patches and the fabric had softened a little so it draped even better than before - happy days all round. So the moral of the story is, don't be afraid of the washing machine, Nick is right (and so is his not flappy label), washing your jacket often improves an already excellent jacket.
Frahm jackets are amazing, the fit, quality of workmanship, price and styling are second to none. I don't often write reviews but feel I need to spread the word on this company, if you don't own one already you're missing out!
I love this shirt, better quality and fit than more expensive denim shirts I own. It's super soft and gets even softer after a few washes, I opted for the black colour which is gorgeous! Love the external pockets and the casual look of the shirt.
I am a big fan of merino wool (primarily in sports gear), so when I spotted this jacket I was immediately drawn to it. I wasn't disappointed - the drape and feel are lovely, just a nice weight, being lined with cotton. The cut (size L) is slimmer than my Field Utility Jacket (size TL) and so what I hoped I would be able to do, I can…fit the merino jacket under the FUJ as additional warmth! All the hardware obviously matches too so they make a good pair. Highly recommended.
Well made and very smart, wouldn't hesitate in recommending Frahm to anyone looking for a superb and fairly priced jacket. So good I have now purchased 7 jackets, corduroy, 4 seasons acket , denim jacket and 3 moleskins and workers jacket.
My new Merino Mechanics Jacket is a thing of absolute beauty. I’d bought a Harrington Racer last year and this is a similar styling but totally different feel. As expected, a perfect fit, but softer than I could have thought imaginable. Stylish beyond belief on a middle aged guy just going about the day to day business of life. Nothing that could be improved. Well done, partners!!
