Spring And Summer Looks For Plus Size Men With Jacamo

Isn't it amazing with spring and warmer weather? And this year it's been such a lovely spring. I was contacted by Jacamo*(gifted items) the other week if I wanted to take part in a campaign they had to style up a male friend or partner so I jumped the opportunity as I always love to use Mike as a model on my blog. So I will let him take over and leave you guys with him.

Hello everyone. I'm Mike. Some of you might know me. I'm Mookie's husband. I'm usually behind the camera, but I think some of you might have seen me around?

I was very happy to be asked to take part in this campaign and I chose some clothes that I think reflects my normal style which is quite laid back and relaxed. Although I also chose something I usually wouldn't have gone for and ended up really liking.

The first outfit I put together is this. I'm wearing the Bewley&Rich Layers Polo Shirt and the Williams&Brown Seersucker Shorts.

I chose this polo shirt as I liked it very much. I loved the colour and design when I saw it and knew that I had to choose it. I'm glad I did as the fabric is great and it's really good quality. I really like the buttons on the neck and I like having the option to button down the collar. Very versatile as can be worn with jeans and shorts for a casual look and chinos for a more formal look. It looks good tucked in or pulled out from shorts/trousers. I'm wearing a size XL which is a perfect fit for me. 

I have never had a pair of shorts like these so my first thought was that I didn't like them. I kept coming back to them and I liked them more and more, and I'm very happy I chose them cause I really like them. They are a really comfortable fit. Love the quality and lightness of the fabric. You can see the details from the fabric in the detailed photo, it's had a unique texture to it which makes it so comfortable to wear and I'm sure it will be so great to wear on a really hot summers day as they are made of cotton. They are just the right length and have a smart turn up at the bottom. Very useful pockets. Two at the front, two at the back. The colour means that it can be worn with all kinds of coloured t-shirts/tops. These shorts are very smart and can easily be dressed up with a nice crisp white shirt for a formal occasion, but also be worn to the beach, holiday, summer party etc. I am very happy with these shorts and can highly recommend them. Can also be worn with different footwear like sandals, trainers or even smarter shoes for more formal occasions. Button and zip fastening with no elasticated waist. I'm wearing a 38-inch waist and it's a true to size fit. 

He had so many different polo shirts to chose from in Jacamo's huge selection of polo shirts and the same with shorts

I also chose a pair of chinos as living in the UK always can get a bit cold even in spring and summer. Chinos are an old classic that never goes out of fashion and can be worn to so many occasions. I chose to style it with my polo shirt from Jacamo for this, but I know I will be wearing these for work with a shirt and a jumper as well. I went for these Flintoff By Jacamo Chino among so many other styles of chinos from Jacamo.

They fitted really well. I'm wearing a size 38" waist, 29" length (I'm 5'9). It came with a belt, but the belt is too big. Although it's supposed to fit a size 38" waist the tightest hole was too big. I could, of course, make my own holes, or use a different belt, so it's not a major problem. Who buys the trousers for the belts anyway?? The fabric is good quality and lightweight and the length is perfect on me. Lovely colours and it washes well and has kept its colour well. 

I chose to wear the chinos with a pair of nice brown shoes. 

The details on the polo-shirt are very nice. 

Nice details and subtle accent colours. 

 I also wore the polo-shirt with jeans and trainers and thought it looked cool.

Thank you to Jacamo for letting me take part in this challenge, it was fun doing it and it is great to show off some nice looks for plus size men too.
