Woodland Worker's Jacket 2021

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. 

 

HOW TO FIT YOURSELF

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).

 

measurement guide

Next, compare your measurements with our size chart below to see which Frahm jacket is right for you. Our jumpers are also sized in the same way.

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 altered for you when possible (most of the time it is). Please Live Chat or email us to discuss.

Nick's Style Notes

Lumberjacket jackets don't really live up to their name. They're usually made with soft, very tearable fabric that will ruin quickly. I wanted to make a really tough cool weather jacket that you could scrape against a ragged broke branch without any effect, that was smart without being showy. 

Based on the hugely popular Lightweight Worker’s Jacket, this is a heavier weight worker’s coat to combat cool and mixed British conditions and gloaming pine forests. You could call it a trucker jacket too.

The outer fabric is a heavier weight washable waxed fabric than our Field Jacketand Harrington jackets - from British Millerain in Rochdale, Lancashire, of course. No need to reproof even after years of machine washes.

The lining is a gorgeous brushed, soft, red and navy blue check cotton. We’ve added Italian stainless steel snap closures to the front cargo pockets and our super tough brushed horn buttons.

There are pockets galore, with two main lower cargo pockets, with hand pockets behind (it drives us nuts not to have anywhere to put hands). Add in one buttoned chest pocket, with a YKK hardened stainless steel zipped chest pocket opposite it. Then inside we have a two inside pockets - one for a paperback book and another for your pen knife and mints.

As with it’s 5 star reviewed sisters the Lightweight, we have paid particular attention to the buttons. These are real horn, brushed for a wonderful hand feel. The thread is triple woven through to a smaller holding button to the rear, with the thread then bound around the button at it’s centre to create an extremely tough and long lasting natural fixing. These buttons will not be falling off.

There are button cuffs with two widths to select and a stiff casual collar that can be turned up if desired. As ever we use heavy duty twin needle stitching to add longevity. The embroidered brand label on the right shoulder is pure black.

This is a jacket that will wear its' life as it ages - whether chopping logs in a remote forest or animating talking squirrels in a city studio. Beard not compulsory.

Weather range, with t-shirt from 6c to 18c, or down to 0c with heavy layer(s) - ideal for cold, windy through to mild days in changeable weather and showers.

Just get one! Do it! Do it now!

This jacket really has surpassed everything I'd expected. Fit and finish it incredible. It's crazy that is really does feel like it was designed for me. When it's on, it fits like a taylor made jacket. Everything from the choice of material, zippers, buttons, stitching etc is immaculate, and you can see the love and attention that's been poured into it... Now stop reading this review and buy one 😁 you won't be disappointed

Ideal for watching the dog chase squirrels

Like other reviewers I think I was expecting this to be a bit less snug, but once you get your head (and shoulders, and chest) round the fact it's designed to have a slim silhouette and that it does fit just fine, it's all systems go. Immediately threw myself into a stand of brambles to test Nick's assertions - the jacket came out intact but I'm still pulling thorns out of my face so maybe I shouldn't have gone that far. It's warmer than I was expecting - not immediately, but once you get going it is just fine, and having been caught out in the rain it certainly kept me nice and dry. One small whinge is the buttons - one was close to coming off after the first wear and another is coming unthreaded. Because of the button shank and the 'back button' (no idea what it's really called), they're a bit more tricky to sew back on. Close to losing a star as it's not the first Frahm item with a loosely sewn button, but the quality and detail makes up for the inconvenience of finding the right thread and working out which pair of glasses is right for sewing. I've had quite a few compliments whilst out and about (and had to tell someone where I got it) so as well as its practicality, it's a hit with the dog walkers

Fantastic Product...eventually !

Well, firstly, this jacket ...the "Woodland Worker's Jacket" Black is superb, beautiful design and quality. Not cheap.....but we knew that. Ok, it took the best part of six months to arrive....but we knew that.

But beware on sizing, these jackets are cut to flatter, which means "tight". I pretty much take "Medium" on anything and have done for the last 30 years, so ordered "Medium" again....Now I am aware I may have a slightly wider chest than most for my height (5ft 10 in and 42 in)...but medium definitely does not fit... snug is not the word...so pay particular notice to the sizing information, I acknowledge I should have been more aware here, but these jackets fit closely to their advised information and not standard high street shop sizes.

So...for a jacket of this cost...sadly I had to send it back. The good news is that they were highly responsive to trying to sort it out and source a replacement, despite the significant availability issues. Firstly Clive, and latterly (and extensively) Leoni sortied this out for me, as replacements are in short supply. So I am now in possession of a superb (Large) Woodland Workers Jacket (Black)...supreme quality and superb service from start to finish and I am proud this is a British Company.

My First Frahm - and definitely not the last!

I've had the Woodland Worker's jacket for a few weeks now and absolutely delighted with it. Initially the tailoring felt a little unusual as I tend to buy "baggy" but having got used to that it feels wonderful. Incredibly light for the warmth that it provides and even enough storage for a pocket fiend like me. Okay - I'd prefer to have an internal zipped pocket as well but that would likely spoil the look a little, and the way that the large external cargo pockets are designed with the snaps means they feel both secure and not likely to let any water in.

My wife thinks it looks great - a proper "quality" piece of clothing. As a result I've since ordered the 2022 Ventile Thermal Field Jacket, and keep eyeing up the 4 Seasons Waterproof (seeing as I now have some Rewards discount to use). Keep up the good work!!

I’m no Woodland worker….. but

The WW jacket is ace! I missed the pre-order for the Original Utility Field jacket and managed to bag this. It oozes quality, is light weight, but not so light that it doesn’t feel substantial. Your arms slide effortlessly into the silky sleeves and the flannel interior feels soft and warm. It’s a perfect autumn number, most appreciated with a single layer underneath. I got the sizing wrong, went for a medium initially (I usually sit between M and L) and I needed a large. Customer service were great and I was able to swap for a large. Fit is great, I’m a happy customer.
