My Summer holiday is now just around the corner. In June I will be heading off, with my whole family, to Cyprus, in order to celebrate my brother’s wedding. This means that the next two months will be firmly looking towards our wardrobes, making sure that not only do we have outfits suitable for the wedding, but also clothes that will be fit for the extremely hot weather we will be experiencing.
Menswear brand Jacamo recently asked if I was interested in reviewing some pieces from their Summer ranges. Jacamo once had a reputation for being a destination for plus size clothing for men, but that is definitely in the past. With the gorgeous Freddie Flintoff as a face of the brand, and with ranges from Farah, Ellesse and French Connection amongst others, Jacamo is now a place where men can find clothing for pretty much every occasion, and a definite destination when it comes to choosing a holiday wardrobe, including swimshorts, chinos and polo shirts.
Most hotels require that swim wear, including swim shorts, are not worn in hotel restaurants for dinner. With that in mind Pete chose a seriously smart pair of Farah shorts, the Penberth Stretch Chino Shorts, that look both cool and stylish, not to mention smart, when worn with a polo top. The shorts have a more tailored feel, with a slip fly fastening, and they have side and back pockets. These would be super smart when worn for an evening occasion, or a sight seeing trip, they just have that classic look.
When it comes to swimshorts, Pete loves the old school style of Ellesse. The Ellesse Brenzo swimshorts have a feel of the 1980s, and the film ‘The Business’. The shorts have a mesh lining, and a really useful zipped coin pocket on the back. The navy and white stripe colourway is both classic and modern, and gives the shorts a cool, football style feel.
I think Jacamo has really upped their game when it comes to great clothing for holiday season. Plenty of cool items that would definitely find room in your suitcase!
