So whatever I wrote in my first review full of enthusiasm for my first Frahm jacket goes for this jacket also, having lived with an original UF I knew exactly what to expect so obviously it’s hard say something new other than the military green is just perfect. I sized up to XL to allow thicker clothing underneath to go through winter and not because I’d put a bit of timber on.
Ok so I don't have loads of money and I'm not particularly stylish but I wanted a waxed cotton jacket. I checked out Barbour/belstaff and others and realised the name/badge was what I was paying for and loads of others would have one.. I then found this.. so it's a small company but then that adds to the uniqueness and in no way detracts from the quality. It's really well made looks elegant and not showy.. I'm happy I found the site and Nick was helpful from start to finish. You know you're getting the personal touch from someone who cares..
I've had my Utility Jacket for just over a month now. I do love the FIsherman's Yellow colour, it feels really smart. The material is very tactile. I've already had a number of positive comments about it from friends and family. Had an issue with the sizing at first. I'm pretty slight (5'9", 38 inch chest, just over 11 stone - or 175cm and just over 70kg) and was advised to go for the Small. It was quite snug, I could just about get a thin fleece under it. My wife thought it looked way too small on me. Via an online chat with Nick, I was able to swap for a Medium very promptly, without issue and I'm much happier with it - and so is my wife. I would still say that you couldn't describe it as 'roomy'. I think the fit is now great, almost looks tailored. As this is not what you get with your average jacket, this is just something to be aware it. I love the cut of the sleeves and cuffs. One criticism: I find the metal fasteners for the pockets and flaps to be very stiff - hopefully they will ease with use. I'm looking forward to many years of happy use.
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 email@example.com or Live Chat us (bottom right hand corner here) and we will discuss sizing with your personally.
