Jacamo - for men!

Hubby and I rarely get to go into actual shops, that is well documented on my blog. When the rare occasion does happen, we race round like animals desperately picking up some vaguely flattering clothes for ourselves, occasionally grunting at the other - "what do you think of this?" and pretending to care what the other person is holding up for us to approve of. So, we've just decided not to bother anymore, as it's too stressful and rarely fruitful - and anyway, online shopping is SO easy, plus you get a better pick of sizes and styles, and if you don't like what you see, you can just pop it in the post and send it back! Easy!

So when we were offered the chance to try men's clothing retailer Jacamo, it was pretty exciting - especially for hubby, since this is specifically a men's store. He's a bit of  a being of the nineties, so has been after some decent "indie" trainers for ages - having teeny tiny feet (for a man) has some advantages - namely that we can share shoes. But for those with larger feet, Jacamo has a good range of wide fitting shoes - something that is hard to find on the high street. Anyway, hubby chose these fabulous puma trainers - and what's more - they're on next day delivery too. Very handy for those who are short of time (namely, us).

90s tastic but still awesome.

We will mow the grass one day.
I thought these were really good value and there were also other colours available,  but he went for this classic sort of racing green look, as it looks great with anything - especially jeans.

As we spend a lot of time in the freezing cold either chasing round a 1 year old or stamping our feet trying to keep warm whilst watching Rugby/waiting to pick up our children from various places, we often substitute style for warmth and practicality - surely a sign of getting old? Anyway, if we have to be warm, we may as well look as cool as possible, so hubby also opted for this Jack Wolfskin fleece - another great thing about Jacamo is that they do lots and lots of brands - as well as their own brand stuff - so you can get practically anything! We love Jack Wolfskin as it combines practicality with a nice smart look.



This is a great option for wearing underneath a thicker coat for really cold days, or with a gillet on slightly warmer days. Sadly as we live in what seems like the coldest micro climate in Britain, this is as warm as it generally gets.

So, big fans of Jacamo in this house! Great selection of different clothing ranges, next day delivery, great website, what more could you want?

I was gifted these items to enable me to write this post, but all thoughts are my own.

January end of sale - ultra sale!


I have been waiting right until the last possible moment to get the best sale bargains - but unfortunately I seem to have left it SO long, that nearly all the sizes are gone. Anyway, from the leftovers, here are my top pics!

1) Baukjen Fleur Top  - £11



I have this in black and it looks great with jeans.

2) Baukjen Bailey Dress £19



Not sure when I'd wear this - but big big bargain!

3) Baukjen Sian Roll Neck Jumper £41



Warm and stylish.

4) Hush Crossover Skirt £25



Perfect for work or going out - and super comfy!

5) Jack Wills Brotherlee Zip Up Hoodie £34.95



I tried to beat the system on this one and order the man's style as it was £10 cheaper but it was a very weird fit on me!

6) Jack Wills Austerberry Blazer £69



Not many sizes left but these are big - so I reckon you'd be ok with an 8 if you're normally a 10-12.

I'm not sure why I chose 6, but these have really caught my eye and are genuine bargains - if you can find the right size. I will keep on looking and see else I find!
