Now Spring is here I've been wearing it a lot. However, I think that for the over 80s, like me, we need to have blank labels on the pockets; there are so many! I get lost trying to find things. So if we could write on individual pockets, such as "Spare false teeth" "glasses for reading", glasses for driving"" Those bits of paper I know are useful but can't remember what they are for" etc But apart from regular searches to find things, it is really good to have those pockets as I am a pocket hoarder to the extent that my friend bought me a man's handbag; no need for that now. I mentioned poacher's pockets because they are so deep, lovely!, that a rabbit might just be concealed, certainly edible hamsters.
I found the jacket a bit stiff but it is a field jacket. does it become more supple after washing?
All in all, I am very glad to have one, it is very useful, and smart so it greatly impressed my friend who was despairing of the rags hanging off me.
I was a little uncertain about buying this jacket over the Internet. However the team were fantastic at advising me. The quality and detailing are excellent and it will last me for many years I am sure. The only thing to say is that I am an XL in most other brands however I needed XXL in this brand as the fit is slightly snug. A great product overall. Thank you!
I have held off writing a review as I wanted to use the jacket in different conditions. The reviews are spot on. Great fit, works well in all conditions, regulates temperature, it’s fast becoming my go to jacket. When I first used it the zip and buttons were a little stiff but after a few wears it loosened up. On top of the great product I also received excellent service from the Frahm team. Izzy responded to my questions immediately and nothing seemed too much trouble. Great product and already considering future purchases. Thanks guys 👏. Btw I received a post office “scam” text requesting payment for delivery. Ignore, it’s a scam, Frahm provide free delivery.
Like a lot of people have already said I was slightly nervous about buying a jacket online for a fair sum without the chance to try it on. However I need not have been concerned, the fit is exactly what I was looking for. Clearly the jacket is made of good quality materials, feels extremely well made and has many nice design touches. I’ve only worn it a couple of times so far but have received complements or enquiries as to where I got it from?
Not sure if it could be considered for future versions but a button on the cuffs to make them smaller / more fitted would be nice, as the jacket feels fitted throughout apart from the cuffs. But hey, that’s a personal preference and may ruin the design aesthetic?
Overall I am delighted with my jacket, well worth the money. In fact I’ve already started to look for my next purchase from the Frahm shop!!
