I do like a jacket... though normally I hunt through the end of season bargains - and its led me to own various brands and styles (holubar and battenwear etc.) This is my first wax style jacket and a total punt on a brand I knew nothing about. I am a firm believer in buying once and investing in quality gear.
I have had the jacket for a couple of months now - and it has experienced the full range of british weather. The material is fantastic, smooth and substantial, all the details shine through. High quality buttons snaps, beautiful lining - useful internal and external pockets with plenty of space. For me the hand pockets are sublime - perfect angle the hands jut slide in.. and the interior is a silky smooth stretchy lining. Perfect.
This will be perfect for 2/3rds of the year only the hotter summer months where it will get hung up (unless its pouring). I love the fact there are more colourful options coming - the yellow has caught my eye !!
This jacket is perfect for cycling. The waterproof fabric is breathable and comfortable, and the lining stays fresh even with a lot of wear. Fantastic piece of kit.
Beautifully tailored. It's almost like I wrote the brief for a great jacket for an architect who loves being outdoors and you made it for me. Thanks. Only problem is my dog liked it so much, she chewed the bottom button off! BUY ONE. Worth every penny. Thanks.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org or Live Chat us (bottom right hand corner here) and we will discuss sizing with your personally.
