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. 

Size Chart: 




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



Wear in 12c to 22c, mild to warm days, wind or a light shower. Fast drying. Ideal for wearing indoors. Or use as a layer under a heavier jacket.

This is a more rugged version of our beloved Original Lightweight Worker’s Jacket, built from Scottish washable waxed cotton that looks great creased. In fact, we encourage it!

This is a jacket to be worked, in an easy-going way. For that first drink on a long haul flight, a balmy night in the pub garden, or rustling up a creative brief in a King's Cross cafe.


Soft, light, washable, waxed cotton from Halley Stevensons of Dundee, Scotland. This fabric arrives with crease lines and a classic waxed patina; part of the garment’s character

Thorn resistant, showerproof and cool against the skin

Corozo nut buttons. Triple wound and secured at the rear so they don't come loose

YKK custom hardened stainless steel chest zip

Heavy duty twin needle stitching, as with all FRAHM Jackets, for greater strength and longevity

Contrast colour inner seam bindings for clean, comfortable lines


6 pockets in total:

  • 2 large open cargo pockets
  • 2 hand pockets behind those
  • 1 buttoned chest pocket
  • 1 YKK zipped chest pocket opposite it

Pleated elbow articulation

Tough button adjusted cuffs

Subtle black tonal embroidered brand label on upper right arm

Hanger loop on inside of neck

Casual collar that can be worn turned up if preferred


Each FRAHM has an embroidered authenticity label sewn into it. The artwork changes each year, to show which unique year you own

This dry waxed fabric does not need reproofing

Great summer jacket

My second waxed workman’s to go with my dark navy. I’m not usually a yellow kind of guy but I love this Tuscan yellow which is deeper, richer and darker - great colour for the summer. Cheers again Frahm.

Great jacket- great colour

Moss green waxed lightweight jacket

My latest purchase and again well worth the wait. Love the colour. Haley Stevensons waxed material speaks for itself. Nice corozo but buttons. Ykk zip. And as always pockets, loads of pockets. Stitching top class as usual. Onto my next piece I say

Look for FRAHM garments, or articles
