If you're interested in Good Business, starting your own company and the thought behind making the stuff we wear, listen in...
Simon is a chap I came across via LinkedIn (booo) and we immediately hit it off. He's a respected brand consultant and serial clothing entrepreneur. He's taken a kicking and done very well. Life!
We chatted very unguardedly about making clothes, real life branding, good marketing, fatherhood, politics (nicely) and his recent re-marriage. Exactly the kind of open chat we're after.
We're here to help, guide and inspire.
Also: Deliveries as usual. Double donations to Mind. A wee sale. 20% pre-order discount is back. Some pre-order re-jigging.
Tips from someone who's been there.
Get through Coronavirus anxiety, or indeed any anxiety a bit better.
Our jackets are tough and beautiful because that's life and the best of life.
*Warning. Contains poetry*
FRAHM jackets are cut for real men's bodies and movement. We've subtly altered classic tailoring for more movement, for real life. Our jackets do not have a restrictive teenage 'fashion' cut. Our customers rave about our fit.
Our best guide to size is your favourite existing jacket or suit jacket. Look for the inches or CM, not "medium" or "large", as these definitions differ wildly between brands.
"Tall" sizes are for very tall men, offering exactly the same jacket with significantly longer arms and torso.Don't buy one if you're above average - our standard sizes will fit. Our arm lengths are longer than most.
If you have any questions or concern you are an unusual fit, email us on email@example.com or Live Chat us (bottom right hand corner here) and we will discuss sizing with your personally.
