I pre-ordered Lightweight Worker's jacket in french blue. I'm 38" chest with quite an average bodytype. Size M is just perfect, not slim, not loose, just right. I was little bit worried about the color being too "blue" if it makes sense, but the french blue strikes a perfect balance between bright bold colour and nothing too crazy.
What I had in mind when buying, was something between light jacket and overshirt that would work indoors in office environment. The Frahm does that just perfectly. It's the right choice for those temperatures when your wondering if you should go with jacket or something lighter, the workers jacket is just right.
Fabric and finishes are top notch as I already anticipated from Frahm (already own a harrington). Overall just wonderful piece of clothing that I'm sure will see load of use.
Had my Lightweight Workers Jacket for a week now (and, no, I have not done any work during that time!!) - yet another truly excellent jacket from Frahm!! Firstly, sizing, for those looking to buy (and, don't hesitate, by the way!) - I'm 1.78m tall, 65kgs and the Small is a perfect fit, over a shirt/ t-shirt/ jumper (most of which have been needed during a typical British summer weather week - and it's exactly that weather that the jacket ticks all the boxes for - already been "caught out" by 3 torrential downpours this past week and the jacket has held them off... like the Harrington I own, the fabric is, once again, somewhat "magical" - really nice "handle" as I believe the trade say, soft, not the least bit "crinkly" - I'd also say it's a darker navy than some of the on-line shots I've seen (more navy blue than French blue, which I prefer!!) - nice touches of red/ lining, subtly hidden chest zipper pocket and, best of all, the hidden hand warmer pockets - collar works well "standing up" too (not sure why but I always opt to stick the collar up on jackets/ coats (not suits, obviously, that would be a tad Miami Vice) - button cuffs work well - I have none-existent tiny cyclists wrists and the second button option snugs the sleeve ends down nicely....so, yup, if you're looking and dithering, do not hesitate a moment longer, snap one up... one word from my wife....or several in fact - "..that's exactly the jacket I'm looking for, do they do a women's fit..." - well...???
Ok so I have the Field jacket, 2 Harrington’s and a MAC with a V on it so it wasn’t the quality that I was unsure of. It was the style, I’d seen the V version and never got round to buying it. I figured if I didn’t like the styling on then I could sell it and probably lose nothing (pre-order deal).
I shouldn’t have been concerned, it’s amazing. It takes a dad bod and hides it in an very mod way.
I’ve warn it buttoned up, open, collar up, down in rain, in sunshine and it’s great.
Thanks Nick for another masterpiece. Note I am not buying the city jacket, I am not buying the city jacket, if I repeat this enough maybe it’ll come true.
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.
