Label J Clothing with Jacamo

Regular readers of my blog will no doubt be aware that Beautykinguk and I are married (yes really) and every so often he features on my blog. This time he features because I was asked to choose some clothes for him from Jacamo.  Jacamo is a men's clothing website and shop, they have one here in London on Oxford Street and you will see celebrities such as Freddie Flintoff appearing in TV adverts and he has his own line of clothing with Jacamo. Brands such as Firetrap, Lambretta and French Connection also all appear and they have sizes going from a Small right up to 5XL and with everything from mens jeans, t-shirts and jumpers so there is always something for everyone.

I decided that the one thing the mister needed was a coat to keep him warm in this horrid cold spell we have just had. He has numerous coats but none have a hood, they don't look warm and whilst they are long and cashmere, something a little different was what I chose and it is this, the Label J Parka

This parka from Label J is described as being 'this season's must-have piece'. It features a pretty good sized hood with a faux-fur trim, plenty of pockets with on the outside and one inside, making room for an iPhone, iPod, wallet, Oyster cards and whatever else is needed. It also features a full zip from bottom to top along with press-stud front fasteners, so he is warmly wrapped and the press-studs don't pop open at any point.

I opted for a large size in the event a jumper would be worn underneath the coat, there is nothing worse than buying a coat which fits snugly but add an item of clothing underneath and all of a sudden it is unbearable to move. In this case, the large fits perfectly well and as a regular length, it comes just below the buttocks.  Made from cotton, there is a quilted inside and this coat is machine washable and is priced at just £65 here, so an absolute bargain.

Sticking with Label J, I also opted for a pair of jeans. The Balham worker jeans from Label J are said to be this season's take on the classic straight-leg jean and I like that they can be worn with absolutely anything being the classic denim blue and because Stephen wears jeans for work in a smart casual kind of way.

As he is quite tall, approaching 6ft, with long legs, finding a fit that works is often an issue and he is an in-between size of a 33-inch leg, so we do usually opt for a 34 and find they are just that bit too long.  These fit perfectly, even whilst wearing the big biker boots, his favourite ones.  With a zip fly and pockets to the front and back these jeans are a perfect fit and at just £35 here, they are an absolute bargain.

Was Stephen happy with my choices? Certainly was, the jeans are stupidly comfy and a great fit around my biker boots. The denim is really soft. The coat has been an absolute dream over the last few weeks. With sideways rain and subzero temperatures having a coat that blocks out the howling wind and a snug fur lined hood has meant that I've stayed toasty and warm. It's a fab coat, although whenever I wear the parka I feel the urge to walk with my knees bent and shouting 'r kid' in a thick Manc accent.

Have you ever shopped at Jacamo?
