Size Guide
Size & Fit Guide
Our customers rave about our fit, check out the reviews.

FRAHM jackets are cut for real men's bodies and action. We've subtly altered classic tailoring for more movement, for real life. Our jackets do not have a restrictive teenage 'fashion' cut. 

Size Chart: 




Size by your actual body measurements, not copying your size in another brand. Fit can vary wildly between brands and their size may not be ours.

HEIGHT: This is the easy one – measure yourself from the top of your head to your heel. (Sometimes easier to do against a wall we find.)

CHEST: To find out your chest size, take a tape measure and wrap it under your armpits at the fullest part of your chest.

ARM: Measure from the shoulder seam to the bony bit on your wrist (yes, that is the biological term).



If you can't measure your chest circumference, the best guide to size is your best fitting existing jacket or suit jacket. Then Live Chat us and we can advise what your size is.

"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.

If you have shorter arms, we will happily have your sleeves shortened from a minimum of 3cm for you when possible (most of the time it is). Typically alterations take 3 - 4 weeks.  

If you have any questions please do Live Chat or email us on



Parkas are incredible for harsh winter conditions, but the big brands seem intent on making either shiny synthetic or baggy fashion versions. I wanted to make a world-beater. A less flimsy, more grown up, more detailed parka built with longevity and quality in mind. 

The design is testament to classic Arctic exploration kits and Scandinavian military designs, with increased performance. My initial design notes say "tough as nails". It is.

Another great jacket to add to my Frahm collection. Almost can’t wait for winter so I can put it through its paces.

This coat is quality ,it’s heavy but not overpowering and the attention to detail is spot on .Got the blue with red sleeve pocket and it very subtly stands out ,quite glad it’s now only available in all blue ,shame it’s in the wardrobe until winter ,tho I have a four seasons waterproof and a waxed lightweight workers jacket to get me through until then ,definitely 5 stars to nick and co
