Lightweight Worker'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

The FRAHM Lightweight Worker’s Jacket is a detailed, wonderfully comfortable - yet tough throw-on casual option for Spring, Summer,  early Autumn and indoors.

Go to option for the artist or workshop dweller, a Chore Coat, French Worker’s Jacket, or Work Shirt is a must have for the warmer months and work indoors.

As ever, we’ve taken a classic style and augmented it. The brushed Italian fabric is a tough ripstop that is somehow also crease resistant, showerproof and cool against the skin.

There are pockets galore, with two main lower cargo pockets, with hand pockets behind (it drives us nuts not to have anywhere to put hands). Add in a buttoned chest pocket, with a zipped chest pocket opposite it.

We have paid particular attention to the buttons. These are real horn, brushed for a wonderful hand feel. The thread is triple woven through to a smaller holding button to the rear, with the thread then bound around the button at it’s centre to create an extremely tough and long lasting natural fixing. These buttons will not be falling off.

The button cuffs have two widths to select, a short casual collar that can be turned up if desired, and there are red seam bindings within. As ever we use heavy duty twin needle stitching to add longevity and there's a tonal black FRAHM brand label on the right upper arm.

This is a jacket to be worked: spattered with oil paints, grabbed from a pub bench and thrown on as the sun goes down or to smarten up a Summer work outfit.

Weather range, with t-shirt from 10c to 24c - mild to warm days, wind & light showers. Or use as layer under heavier jacket in cold weather.

Perfect summer jacket

This review is for the 2021 lightweight, in the 'soviet' colours.

This is a lovely lightweight jacket, perfect for those summer days when a t-shirt isn't quite enough.

Even though it's pretty much shirt-weight fabric it really keeps the wind out and is waterproof enough to keep you dry in a moderate shower.

The cut, fit and construction are all top notch. I'm a lover of well made clothes, I've got a McNair mountain shirt, Hiut jeans and a Paynter jacket; the Frahm jackets I have are up there with the best.

And the soviet colours get a lot of compliments!

Love this jacket and looking forward to receiving my military parka and 4-season waterproof in due course.

Great Jacket - and Fab customer service

I really like my lightweight workers jacket - it's perfect for all that a typical British summer's day can throw at you, even keeps me dry in a light shower.
After a few weeks I noticed a problem with the zipped pocket, coming apart at the seams. I was really disappointed and dropped a message to the team at frahm. I was worried that I would get into a convoluted returns process and would be without my new fave jacket for weeks. Izzy got back to me straight away and found a solution that worked for me - involving a local tailor undertaking the repair. I was back wearing my jacket within 2 days.
A great business is one with great products and great service when things don't quite go to plan. Good on you guys.
I can't wait for my next purchases to arrive...

Fantastic all-rounder!

I got the XL tall and it fits like a dream. I’m 6’6”, broad across the shoulders and long in the arm and I’ve never had a jacket fit so well. It’s water repellant so excellent for light showers (although not designed for very heavy downpours, as I found out). It’s a perfect over shirt for me for dog walking, as I often want a layer over my t shirt but don’t want to end up sweating in a coat. The workmanship is immediately evident. It looks and feels quality abs I’ve had lots of compliments on it. Really pleased with it and will be ordering further products!

Great Grab & Go Lightweight Jacket

Wanted a lightweight jacket for spring, summer & mild autumn wear. Hadn't heard of Frahm before and was a little apprehensive about preordering an item of clothing. Any pre purchasing doubts were dispelled on arrival. The fit is good, the detailing is excellent and there are more than enough pockets. It's smart enough for when you need smart but casual enough to become your favourite mild weather (or indoor) jacket. I'm a Frahm convert and have since ordered some of the other designs.

Crimson red lightweight worker's jacket

My second Frahm garment.
I purchased the lightweight red tartan workshirt, I was impressed by the features and details of the shirt, it is a fantastic fit and super comfy.

The worker's jacket fits like a glove, the red with black buttons and shoulder patch looks great with a simple black t-shirt.

A really pleasing aspect of the jacket is the different looks or styles that you can achieve . Collar up, collar down, jacket open or closed, somehow it always looks great however you choose to wear it.
