I’ll be honest with you, ever since Jacamo featured Johnny Vegas as the front-man for their brand I have never shown much interest in them. I thought that the clothes they stocked would be all starting from size large and rise from there, and mainly feature “dad-style” clothing.
However when I was approached by Jacamo to work with them, after my initial scepticism, I scoured their site and was pleasantly surprised that my judgements were completely wrong.
Jacamo stocks well known brands like Timberland, Adidas and Levi’s, another thing I wasn’t aware of! Whilst sizes do go up to 5XL for the more built gentleman their sizes do actually start at a size small.
Their clothing is very up to date and not “dad-style” at all, I mean they have ditched Mr Vegas and gone for a more trendy Freddie Flintoff as their main man which I am all for (I may be biased as a Lancashire lad).
My pick of the bunch however was the Faux Sherpa Aviator Jacket, I’ve previously seen guys wearing aviator jackets and they have always struck me as a cool piece of gear so I had to snap one up. The jacket itself is lined on the inside with a faux sherpa fleece to keep you warm and features a twin buckle detail at the top of the zip. The quality is great and the jacket has a rugged feel to it making me feel like a bouncer, only more sharply dressed.
Unfortunately I do not own a plane, therefore could not give the aviator a fully fledged test-run but I did go and shoot some pictures to give you a better look at the jacket instead – seems like a fair compromise.
A big thank you to the Jacamo team for sending me the jacket! Go check their jackets out over at www.jacamo.co.uk.
