Foreign Correspondent's Jacket

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. 

Size Chart: 

 

 

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).

 

 

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 shortened from a minimum of 3cm for you when possible (most of the time it is).  

If you have any questions please do Live Chat or email us on hello@frahmjacket.com

Our flagship design, the Foreign Correspondent's Jacket, is my ode to journalists and to travel. My mum did a great deal of both. I grew up respecting and delighting in the truth and a fascination for other cultures.

I wanted to create a jacket that was at home on a live broadcast from a rainy rooftop in Caracas or crossing a dusty Jordanian mountain pass at night. What a joy to create. Finally, years of obsession, released to you. The best of everything, of course. Enjoy.
