Size & Fit Guide

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).

 

 

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). Typically alterations take 3 - 4 weeks.  

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

French worker's jackets, or chore coats, are an extremely popular men’s staple, but we found they are too heavy and unstructured. We wanted to create a more flattering, tailored version, with clean lines and greater comfort. The gorgeous brushed Italian fabric is at the centre of this thinking, with all the usual FRAHM attention to detail and longevity.

Since its launch in 2019, it has been a huge favourite, and so, having created the Waxed Lightweight Worker’s version too, it becomes the 'Original'.

YOUR SIZE GONE?

We sell by pre-order. Most options on this year's Original Lightweight Worker's ran out ages ago. We've launched 2025, with 20% pre-order reward.

Fabric is made for us in Como, Italy, from a brushed nylon cotton blend.

Crease resistant, lightly showerproof and cool against the skin.

Italian real horn or Corozo nut (white or yellow) buttons, brushed for hand feel. Triple wound and secured at the rear so they don't come loose.

YKK gunmetal hardened stainless steel chest zip.

Contrast colour inner seam bindings for clean, comfortable lines.

Black tonal embroidered brand label on upper right arm.

DESIGN DETAILS

6 pockets in total.

Two main lower cargo pockets, with hand pockets behind.
