Original Utility Field Jacket 2021

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. Our jumpers are also sized in the same way.

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

      This was my first FRAHM design. I wanted to launch with the most versatile jacket possible - that jacket you always grab off the rack. I wanted to create a tough yet stylish and versatile jacket for everything from dashing between meetings in rain showers through to dog trekking from a hilltop pub. I'm very proud of it.

      We’ve innovated a British military classic, the waxed field jacket. It’s subtly modernised to make it comfortable for active movement, washable, odourless, breathable, with loads of storage, for versatility and minimal fuss.

      There is a LOT of detail here, from the carefully thought-through reinforced pockets, right down to the intricate herringbone care label.

      READ DETAILED FIELD JACKET BLOG

      Constructed from machine washable waxed fabric, it will gradually develop a worn look, as with all waxed jackets, but without any reduction in performance or the oily inconvenience of old school waxed fabrics.

      The fit is ‘tailored athletic’. Not unrealistically tight, not loose, just right. The vented shoulders have extra space built in and the arms are longer, for real-world movement.

      Weather range are 2c (room for a thick jumper) to 18c, in high winds or rain showers.

      Quality Materials

      British Millerain machine washable waxed cotton fabric is surprisingly lightweight, as it isn't laden with sticky wax like old style waxed jackets

      Breathable, shower and rain proof, but not fully waterproof.

      High, jawline stiffened collar with a moleskin cotton lining for added comfort.

      Cotton cashmere blend lining lining is incredibly soft & odour resistant

      Embroidered care info is sewn inside, no flappy care labels

      Machine washable, does not need reproofing with wax.

      Design Details

      Internal YKK zipped chest pocket and internal book pocket

      4 front pockets, secured by indestructible hardened stainless steel snaps from Italy.

      Moleskin cotton lined hand pockets behind front cargo pockets

      Scalloped, reinforced cuffs with moleskin lining

      Twin needle stitching throughout

      Cut & Fit

      Twin rear shoulder vents

      New convert with a grin on his face!

      First wear of the utility jacket oxblood red for a chilly morning cycle yesterday. First impression is of joy to wear such a beautifully made piece. I am 182cm/75kg slim type and the Medium is fitted but with enough room to move around. Quite close to the body on the waist, sleeves lenght is spot on. Perfect to go around town on the bike. The oxblood red (going towards burnt orange) is very original, but turns out super versatile. The fabric, the details and the tayloring is as good as described by Nick and most owners. This is going straight to my travel capsule wardrobe, light to carry around, looks as stylish opened or closed can take the rain without fear. Well done guys, I am now saving for a future parka,,,

      A great experience

      I had been lurking on the Frahm site looking at jackets for some time. While the design looked great, the sizing concerned me; as I progress in life, brands like Paul Smith and Hugo Boss have left me as they embrace a norm which seem to start at “Slim Fit” and get thinner. The “tailored athletic” rang alarm bells.

      I had a on-line conversation with a very helpful lady who guided me to, what she suggested would be my size.

      When the box arrived, it made me smile, I won’t spoil the surprise for others, but it’s a distinctive design! As someone who runs a global logistics business, I also appreciated the care of the packaging; the packer had folded over the tape to form tabs to make opening easier (something I’ve only seen elsewhere in Apple products). The presentation was very good, so congratulations to the fulfilment house.

      The Jacket it self was lovely. The fit was just right. The quality and the detail was as good as I expected. What was a surprise was quite how stylish it looks. The description of field jacket doesn’t do it justice, and while it is at home in the field it looks just as good in the city.

      Overall I’m thrilled with the purchase!

      Versatile Field Utility Jacket

      I was debating where to start my review, so I think I'll start at the end. This is the best jacket of this type that I have owned and I'm very. very happy with it. It's a modern take on a more traditional jacket - it looks smart, contemporary and stylish. The cut is really good - it's not oversized, it's flattering and just right (the mrs agrees). There is room (as they promise) for a decent jumper underneath and it's the perfect coat for when it's cool and sunny, overcast - Spring and Autumn weather for sure, but also winter with a good scarf and gloves. On sizing I'm 5ft 9in tall with a 42 inch chest and a large is right for me even though I'm probably (chest wise) at the upper end of the range. An XL would have been far too big for me – I imagine I would have been swamped. I love the scalloped cuffs and the moleskin lining on the neck and hand pockets – it gives a sense of luxury. Lots of pockets (important for me) and I’ve haven’t even managed to use all of them yet which is incredible considering the amount of junk I carry about. It’s been incredibly versatile for me and has seen the retirement of 2 or 3 of my other (non-Frahm) jackets. The main competition for this jacket as the weather gets colder is Frahm coat number 2 (parka) which arrived recently! The customer service was excellent and responsive whether by email or live chat. The coat did need a small minor repair on delivery, but this was dealt with promptly and without difficultly by Frahm. I also asked for the sleeves to be shortened marginally and this too was no problem. Very happy.
