Review: Jacamo Menswear – Great Value, Great Fit

When you work it’s very easy to keep adding to your workwear and to just rely on the same old staple casual clothes which get worn to death.

It seems a bit of an extravagance, doesn’t it, to splurge on casual clothes.  The Husband’s wardrobe is stuffed to the gills with suits and formal shirts but he very seldom adds any new casual clothes.

Happily, he was given the chance to try out Jacamo, a name with which we are already familiar, not least because of Freddie Flintoff’s association with the brand.

We were expecting, good value well made clothes with a decent fit – and that’s exactly what we got.

Menswear brand Jacamo used to have a reputation as catering for the plus-sized gentleman but things have changed and their new advertising slogan is “Any Occasion. Jacamo Fits.” As part of the JD Williams stable, it’s not surprising that their marketing and service delivery is good.

As well as Freddie’s own range, you can find many well-known menswear brands such as  Adidas, Duffer of St George, Firetrap, French Connection, Lacoste, Pringle, Vans and Wrangler.  You can now find menswear for any occasion, whether work or casual wear or holiday wear including swimshorts.

The Husband was sent two items to try.

This blue denim shirt is customised with badges and stitch detail and has a vintage ‘overwash’ and popper buttons.  It’s made of cotton and is machine washable.  Sizes range from chest 39″ up to 66″.  The Husband had one in L42/22 which fitted perfectly.

This denim shirt was quite heavy-weight and since it was a warm day, no t-shirt was needed underneath.

We were also sent the Luke Sports Mead Pique Jet Black Polo – a short-sleeved polo shirt from Luke, featuring a red-tipped three-button collar with contrasting red top button and a stitched logo on the left side of the chest.

Again, it was well made, roomy and the red detailing lifted it out of the ordinary.

We were really impressed with the quality of the clothing.  Delivery was fast and you can spread the cost of your purchases with their buy now pay later scheme.

And certainly a lot easier than a shopping trip with these two.

    With a 6ft5 son (he is 21, stopped growing I hope!), it’s hard to find clothes that fit and he finds comfy. I think we’ll be checking this out together x
