Original Utility Field Jacket

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

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).  

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

The Original Utility Field Jacket is based on a British Military classic, the waxed field jacket. The OUFJ is comfortable for active everyday movement, breathable, odourless, washable, and has loads of storage for maximum versatility.

This is a pre-order which arrives at our warehouse for free shipping to you by 19th September 2022.

We make a limited number each year and we expect all 2022 orders to sell out in advance, as normal.

      This was my first ever FRAHM design. I wanted to make a jacket with maximum versatility. The jacket you always grab. I wanted to create a stylish yet tough jacket for everything. From dashing between meetings in rain showers as well as dog trekking from a hilltop pub. I’m very proud. 

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

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

      Upgrades for 2022 include: Cotton cashmere blend lining & moleskin lined collar, cuffs & hand pockets.

      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

      2022 Edition proof of authenticity artwork - internal embroidered label

      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

      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

      Cut for activity, with extra room in shoulders

      Articulation pleats  in shoulders and elbows

      Twin rear shoulder vents

      Very happy, great job (Original Utility Field Jacket 2021)

      This is my first Frahm jacket, bought a year ago (March 2021) and received in Sept 2021. I've waited this long to write a review because I wanted to see if the jacket lived up to the reputation and, OK, partly due to some procrastination, but mainly to test the jacket. Happily, I can confirm it does live up to expectation.
      The fit is great, I can layer enough for cold weather or wear over a t-shirt for warmer days, which also means I'll wear this jacket for more of the year than a Ventile or Parka (not that that has stopped me ordering the latter...)
      After dutifully slipping down a flight of steps, I not only got the jacket filthy, I cut my arm leaving me convinced I'd torn the sleeve but on close inspection I couldn't find a scratch, so it's tough. I then waited with trepidation as I put the jacket in the washing machine for the first time and can report it came out as good as new.
      OK, it's not waterproof, I got wet patches on the shoulders of my jumper after 7 mins in constant rain, but it's not advertised as such and why I await the imminent arrival of the Waterproof Utility Field version in time for spring and summer. All in all, very pleased, great job Frahm!

      Original Utility Field Jacket / Jumper

      I cruised the website for ages before finally taking the plunge and ordering my first jacket. What held me back was stressing about getting the perfect size and fit on a pre-order. My jacket is superb - every bit as good as advertised. It's stylish but hard wearing and has loads of excellent features - I wear it every day. It's so good that if it were a slightly darker shade of blue, I would probably never need to buy another jacket. What I've also realised subsequently when buying a jumper is that you shouldn't stress about the sizing, The guidance is very clear but if like me you fall between sizes, the materials and tailoring are so good that either size will fit extremely well.

      Great help with getting right fit

      I waited with great anticipation for my Original Utility Field Jacket and so was so disappointed when it arrived - great quality as expected but unusually, based on all other reviews, the arms were too short. Argh! I had to return it. Online chat with the team agreed that I was an 'obvious' medium (which I'd ordered) at 6'2", 39" chest, but the tailored fit left the arm length lacking for me . Roll on a few weeks and I noticed other returns and engaged again with Leonie via the online chat. She very helpfully measured and advised of the arm length differences from medium to large and tall large (2cm and 5cm, I recall) and that there was a tall large in the blue which might be worth me trying. I did, and it's hardly been off my back since! Serendipity I think, as I actually prefer the blue (more French than Navy blue?) to my original red order. The fit is now (of course) roomy around the chest but the arm length is great and layering not a problem. As many others, I am now eying the range and trying to justify another jacket purchase!

      Sensational jacket. Excellent customer service.

      Having moved too slowly to secure a 2021 pre order, I was desperate to get my hands on a Frahm jacket. The customer service was excellent and when some cancellations popped up they were really helpful. The jacket itself is just stunning with quality in every detail. I will definitely be investing in another Frahm jacket soon.
