Frank Thomas autumn and winter gear

Published: 21 August 2008

Frank Thomas is gearing up to launch its autumn and winter 2008 range of clothing. As the name of the range would suggest, the emphasis is on keeping you warm and dry during the dark winter months.

The Autumn and Winter range comprises 10 new jackets, seven pairs of trousers, seven pairs of gloves, and four new pairs of boots, and is due to launch at the end of September.

We’ve selected some of the best kit from the new range to give you a taste of what to expect. Each of the products chosen feature Frank Thomas’ Aquapore waterproof and breathable lining, and cater for men and women in equal measure.
