Ordered wrong size but replaced immediately. Superb quality and fit and nice layered up. Trying to talk Santa into getting me that rather snazzy Parka... Highly recommended,good to deal with and it’s supporting a British business...5/5
When I opened the box it confirmed that this was a special jacket… the care and attention to detail from the off is there to be seen.
The Woodland Worker Jacket is a thing of beauty, the fit is perfect although I wanted to wait until I had worn it a while before giving feedback (sorry Nick). It was a little stiff with newness when I first tried it on and I wanted to feel the jacket once it was bedded in. After a few wears she is softening and will become a go to jacket come rain or shine… and I can see the future: a jacket that will be like an old friend, sharing experiences while looking after me. What’s not to want about that!
Thanks Nick for a great product and I hope it won’t be my last FRAHM jacket…
I came to the FRAHM website after much research and forethought. Over the last few years as I have had a little bit more spending money I have been slowly replacing damaged or aged items in my wardrobe, as well as coping with weight loss that changed my size noticeably and trying to reduce the amount of plastic in my wardrobe overall. Oilskins or waxed cotton seemed the way to go when my aging Berghaus started giving up the ghost, but finding the right item without any polyester proved difficult until now.
Taking a chance on the excellent reviews previous FRAHM jackets have received, as well as the admiral qualities conveyed by their creators, I went for a navy XXL Woodland Worker's Jacket. I was most surprised at the lightness and relative thinness of the final product when it arrived. The reviews had me prepared for the stiffness of the British Millerain waxed cotton, but not for just how solid the buttons and their fastenings are. At first I was worried the fit was too tight, as I'm bulky on top, but after a wash and a couple of wears, it's as comfortable and comforting as clothes I've had for over a decade.
The big test came yesterday when it POURED here in Buckinghamshire, but I also had to be at work (I teach in a local grammar school). The jacket both passed the mens' dress code AND kept me dry all day - not a drop got through to my waistcoat and shirt underneath. All this and not so warm that I get super-sweaty, which the Berghaus, being all plastics, always made me; in fact, this is easily one of the finest jackets I now own in every sense.
Unfortunately, having an addictive personality means this could rapidly become a wallet-destroying habit, but the limited runs will help curb that. Also, much as I would LOVE to order the Waterproof Utility Field Jacket for the hood and suchlike, the use of synthetic membranes and microfleece means I will still have to hold out until an all-natural construction comes along. Based on the Woodland Worker, it will be entirely worth the wait.
My second Frahm purchase - in Classic Navy. And like the first, it didn't disappoint...It's a beauty! Quality, style and fit is superb. No excuse not getting out and about in the fresh air - all I need now is a scarf...
never has the saying"fits like a glove" been more apporpriate,it seems to mould itself to you,the more you wear it the more comfortable it becomes,revelling in all the small details,that make this stand head and shoulders above any other maker
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 by measurements, not that you are a 'Large' or 'XL' in another brand. Fit can vary wildly between brands and their size may not be ours.
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. We are experienced fitters.
"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. Our arm lengths are longer than most.
If you have short 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.
