Lightweight Worker's Jacket 2020

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.

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

Nick's Design Notes: I love French Worker's Jackets, but find them frustratingly lacking in quality & detail. They tend to be bulky and formless. So here's a sharper, lighter, more versatile version, with greater attention to detail.

The 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.

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.

Technical Notes:

  • Silky smooth brushed cotton (64%) / nylon (36%) fabric from Como, Italy
  • Lightly water & stain resistant
  • Tough for it's weight, breathable & crease resistant
  • Custom Italian brushed horn buttons, attached with triple binding & rear button retainers for greater toughness
  • Twin needle stitched high load areas
  • Secure left chest pocket with concealed YKK zip
  • Right chest pocket secured with brushed horn button
  • Subtly cut for activity, with articulation pleats
  • Double horn buttoned adjustable reinforced cuffs
  • Unique hand pockets behind the two main cargo pockets
  • Hip split at hem for ease of movement
  • Lined inner seams in contrast red fabric
  • Embroidered herringbone care information, no flappy labels
  • Machine washable

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

Amazing Jacket

Just received the 2021 version of this jacket (earlier than promised too!), and it’s amazing. The fit is spot on (thanks to Emmalou for the help) and the construction is top notch. They thought of everything. Looking forward to wearing this frequently the next few months. Also, the French Blue is even better in person.

Top notch yet again

The lightweight worker’s jacket is exactly as described. Lightweight and it really does work! Great cut, plenty of pockets and it’ll last for yonks. I love it, thank you. Keep creating these pieces and I give you my word, I’ll keep buying them 👍🏼

another one..

Another Frahm piece to add to the growing collection. I love work shirts. I work in an environment where its not formal, and its not completely slack. Jeans, boots and a t-shirt are the norm. By throwing over a shacket like this, it transforms the look. adds a lightweight layer of protection. and looks very cool. I can work in the factory, or meet a customer. Its a winner.

The best jacket I have ever owned in my life. Hands down. That’s it.

When you review something from Frahm, it’s important to remember that not only are their products impeccably designed, crafted and presented - but that their brand and service are incredible too. I’ve wanted to buy into the brand for months and after incredible help from Emmalou with sizing (instantaneously I might add) - the jacket was mine. From a handwritten note to the packaging the jacket arrived in; every single thing was considered.

This is over and above what the brand itself stands for. Nick’s honesty about mental health issues is nothing short of inspiring and to think that by buying this jacket I’m donating to a good cause, well that’s just the icing on the cake. There is nothing I do not love about Frahm.

But let’s talk about the product. This jacket is exactly what I’ve had in mind for ages. It’s that French ‘chore’ jacket look, with smart, modern details that have very clearly been meticulously planned. I've tried on loads of similar jackets (when you could still go into shops, that’s how long I’ve been looking - this review written in mid Feb 2021) and this fits perfectly, feels great and most importantly makes me feel special. I wish I was able to go out in public as I know all my mates would be jealous.

This is by no means my last Frahm jacket and I will be spreading the word wherever I can. If you’re thinking about getting this jacket - get it. You will not be disappointed. And follow their sizing advice!
