Menswear brand Jacamo recently got in touch to see if we wanted to review some clothes from their summer ranges. It’s always been a brand I thought was no good for Graham, thinking that they only catered for larger men. People who know Graham in ‘real life’ will back me up when I say he is anything but big! He’s tall (6ft 1) but really slim, usually wearing a 30″ waist.
Well, it turns out that whilst they certainly do target the bigger man, there are more than enough options for someone of Graham’s size!
Graham tends to live in jeans, t-shirts, hoodies and trainers. I saw the review as an excuse to get him to try something different and switch up his look – he didn’t get a say in it! With Summer on the way (apparently!), I decided to choose a pair of the cargo shorts from Jacamo’s men’s shorts range. These are both cool and stylish, and look really smart when worn wth a polo shirt. The smallest size they did in these was a 32″ waist. They’re a little loose around the waist, but the belt that comes with it holds them up! He really liked his shorts and has worn them whenever the sun has made a brief appearance.
To wear with the shorts, I ordered him a Capsule Navy Austin jersey polo shirt, which comes in a slightly longer length than standard polo shirts. I’m always moaning at Graham because he forgets that he has a long torso, and his t-shirts always come up really short on him. I love the length of this one. I think the Jacamo polo shirts are a much nicer and smarter alternative to normal round neck t-shirts, and for £12, you can’t go far wrong!
As a bit of change from normal trainers, I opted for these Adidas Cloudfoam Lite slip on trainers. I have a similar sort of thing and I can wear them all day without my feet getting too hot, so I thought these would be ideal for the warmer days. He loves them! They’re perfect for popping on to go down the beach or out for a walk.
Whilst a lot of things on the Jacamo website didn’t come in Graham’s size, it is a website that he will be looking at again in the future, especially when it comes to accessories or footwear.
