Size Guide

This is a pre-order to save 20%.

Arriving mid-October 2019. Pre-payments and deposits are refundable if you change your mind. Full details here.

The FRAHM Waterproof City Coat is elegant urban protection that stays smart. It's versatile and tough enough to take countryside abuse. 

A smart, true waterproof to complement a suit and tie. We wanted to add greater longevity and a wider range of use too, so it can be taken on country walks and it's ok getting chucked into a pile in the pub.

Fabric is everything. What strikes you immediately is the beautiful matt finish, unlike most waterproofs that have that nasty plastic crinkle. It has fantastic structure - holding an elegant shape, even when folded or even crushed. It doesn't crease.

There's a lot of thought put into the hood and collar. The hood is buttoned on under the collar and is removable. The crisp collar can be turned upwards if preferred. The hood itself isn't floppy, with a smart button closure across the neck. Italian cord adjusters and leather stops mean you can tighten it in heavy storms and stay smart.

As ever, everything is beautifully detailed, in a simple package. An zipped internal chest pocket maintains clean lines and protect your phone. There are flashes of deep red internal trim. The internal waterproof lining an elegant broken blue with light blue waterproofing tape across the seams. A ticket pocket and two elegant hand pockets just where you'd want them.

As ever, we have built a jacket with room to move, always with machine-washable, breathable fabric that's easy to care for. The shoulders and hood are pleated for movement and fit, with large rear shoulder vents to dump warm, moist air.

Lastly, the arms offer lots of movement, with more length and scalloped cuffs for extra protection.

Brilliant, beautiful, tough and understated.

Weather range is 1c (room for a thick jumper or suit) to 24c (in heavy rain), in all conditions including persistent heavy rain and high winds. Calm, dry weather range without extra layers is 6c - 16c.

£10 from each jacket sold will be donated to Mind mental health charity.

FRAHM Size Guide

Frahm jacket logo


FRAHM jackets are cut casual, for movement. We've subtly altered classic tailoring for more room in the shoulders and longer arms. Our jackets do not have a restrictive 'fashion' cut. 

Our best guide to size is your favourite existing jacket or suit jacket. Look for the inches or CM, not the "medium" or "large", as these definitions differ wildly between brands.

If you don't know your size, wrap a tape measure around the widest part of your chest and shoulders (no tensing), underneath your armpits. 

If you have a really muscular or chunky build, or want to wear heavy layers (like thick jumpers) under your jacket, we recommend you go for the size up. 

"Long" sizes for particularly tall men offer exactly the same jacket, with significantly longer arms and torso. 

If you have any questions or concern you are an unusual fit, email the designer Nick on hello@frahmjacket.com and he will discuss sizing with your personally.
