Even the box shone brightly, which is praise indeed given it was something that wasn’t technically illuminated.
Once past the sublime and quite neat packaging scenario (so delightful that moving photography was deployed to capture the moment) the jacket came into view. And, in my mind at least, a chorus of angels sung something in Latin to a reasonably sized orchestra in a major key.
I carefully removed the jacket from said box, immediately noticing the tactility of the fabric as my finger tips intuitively searched for the hint of a nap.. I was bombarded by a flotilla of pockets which sprung up in every direction I looked. Within the first half a minute of scanning this marvellous outdoor garment I must have spotted at least twenty five to thirty pockets with a variety of sealing mechanisms; press studs, zips and other such marvels.
It was at this point I became somewhat dizzy and overwhelmed, perhaps by the swell of complex emotions my mind was trying to process. “Got to get outside, try the jacket, let it hold you whilst you gulp in the cold Winter night air. Go, do it now man!” I told myself, using my mind as a silent voice.
And it did hold me. Like a giant glove especially made into the size and shape of an average sized human man. And, in holding me I think it loved me.
I still wear it, even now. Almost two weeks hence.
I’d never heard of Frahm until I saw a Facebook ad last week and got drawn into the website - great ethos, great blogs and what looked like superb jackets. I’ve been after a decent winter jacket for a while but never found the perfect one and tbh was reluctant to buy unseen. But the reviews convinced me and managed to find a bargain in the archive section of site.
Got confidence from Emmalou on live chat about sizing and jacket was here two days later. Packaging was a treat in itself and exudes quality.
It’s great in Navy - almost black as description says - and fitted perfectly in XL ( I normally go for a Large in most other brands but trusted the detailed guidance)
Sleeves just covered knuckles, cord allowed a slightly tailored fit and the whole thing is just understated quality - no branding on this one at all. Zips and studs feel very premium.
Went for a long walk today in zero degrees and was lovely and snug with only a thin sweater beneath - amazing for such a light jacket.
Really really pleased and already looking at the summer ones.
So pleased I bought this - was a bit nervous about buying without actually seeing it but Nick talked me through the sizing and it fits perfectly… The quality is outstanding - its definitely worth the money.
The thermal field jacket is a thing of beauty. The detail and quality are first rate. So far it’s water proof too. I love the cut because it’s easy to move in but fits well enough to comfortably drive wearing it without feeling swamped. It actually looks quite understated with no external branding, although I wouldn’t mind advertising. I’m delighted with it!
Got the Ventile Field Jacket as a Christmas Present. Packaging so good my Wife didn’t wrap it. Second Frahm Jacket. I love the first one but this is best by a long way. Finish and detailing are top quality and as good as the website description. Warm and waterproof with a stylish cut that sets you apart from the crowd; so much so had to lock away from my son. Great present Ang !!
