Merino Mechanic's Jacket 2022 | Pre order

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.

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 Design Notes

"I've worked with merino wool more than any other material in my career - it's nature's performance fabric. I'm obsessed, because it's so versatile. Thus I designed this Merino Mechanic's for myself as my main going-out jacket. I don't like ironing or careful wear, so put together a grown-up modern classic that I can thrown on but will take the spills & knocks of pub life/fatherhood. It makes me purr every time I wear it. Or baa."


Merino wool is an amazingly tough & comfortable performance fabric, rarely used for smart, tailored clothing. We wanted to take the softness, temperature regulation, odour prevention & stain resistance of merino and apply it to a crisp urban design.

This is a luxury urban investment that whispers its pedigree rather than shouting it. We've adapted an American classic, the mechanic's jacket, by swapping cheap synthetics or cotton for something tougher. It seems counter intuitive, but because we're using wool, it has far greater width of application. Merino wool makes it cool in warm conditions & warm in the cold. Great for sitting in a pub garden in the sun, but staying comfortable as the sun goes down. Throw in Great British Rain Shower (or spilt pint) resistance too.


Lined with our signature tartan flannel, we've applied our usual attention to every detail, with hardened stainless steel YKK zips, brushed horn buttons & tough twin-needle stitching.


Clearly classic gentleman's style CAN combine with toughness and longevity. 

Weather range from 6c to 20c with single layer, or to 0c with jumper. Wind & shower resistant.
