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.
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!
Really well made lightweight jacket with great attention to detail. Came earlier than scheduled. Will be my go to summer spring coat. came at a size 1 up from what I usually buy so worth going through the sizing guide on the website.
This jacket is one of those garments that until you own one don’t realise what you have been missing. Something to slip on for a trip to the shops (in the warmer months) pockets for your phone, shopping list, the face mask. Or a quick excursion around the block with the dogs. It is not out of place worn in the house either. This jacket is beautifully made using a quality fabric that drapes well on my frame. Overall a very handy, functional jacket for indoors or warmer months outside, great storage without having to go more formal with a traditional jacket.
This is a must buy if you want something that’s smart well made and perfect for keeping the chill off indoors. I need to exchange the tartan work shirt so I emailed Emmalou to see if I could visit to exchange. So a trip to the Glove Factory was arranged. Emmalou & Nick it was great to meet you both.
Keep up the outstanding work and look forward to my next purchase.
