Jacamo Shorts & Chinos Review – Summer Clothes for Him
My husband recently placed a Jacamo order to update his wardrobe for summer — he needed some new shorts for warm days and Jacamo has a wide selection of men’s shorts in lots of different styles. He also wanted to try a pair of chinos as a more lightweight and dressier option to jeans and found lots of options on the website too.
He picked up two pairs of shorts and one pair of chinos. The Fenchurch Surface Shorts (£35.00) above are made from a thin material perfect for hot summer days. They’re a nice khaki colour and feature branded buttons, a drawstring waistband, two open side pockets and two buttoned pockets at the side and at the rear too.
This is my husband’s favourite item from the three that he chose. They’re very comfortable and easy to wear and the adjustable waist means there’s no need for a belt — though there are belt loops if you’d want to wear a belt.
The Joe Browns Crazy Cargo Shorts (£40.00) above in the colour Tobacco are classic cargo shorts with some fun army based prints and details. They’re a bit thicker than the other shorts and made from cotton. They have two deep pockets with buttons on the side, two buttoned pockets at the top and two on the rear. They have belt loops so can be worn with a belt but they fit my husband perfectly so he doesn’t need one.
These look a bit more dressy than the first pair of shorts and work well for daytime or relaxed evening events — BBQs with friends etc.
My husband has never worn chinos before but the Label J Stretch Twist Tapered Chino in the colour Charcoal fit him perfectly and really suit him too. They have a twisted legs fit style which felt a bit unusual at first but still comfortable thanks to the stretchy material of 97% cotton and 3% elastane. These chinos have front and back pockets, a zip fly and belt loops. These look great for daytime wear with a t-shirt and trainers but can easily be dressed up with a shirt and shoes too.
All items are machine washable which is a must when you’re a hands-on dad and my husband ordered everything in his usual size which is waist 34 and everything fit well. He’s very happy!
