I didn’t realise it at the time, but I married a fussy man. My husband is OH SO FUSSY. He’s fussy about food (won’t eat meat on the bone, hates leftovers, can’t stand most types of fruit etc) and is even fussier about clothes. If something doesn’t fit exactly right then he won’t wear it – even if it’s brand new and looks great as far as everyone else is concerned. So finding holiday outfits for him often proves to be a bit of a dilemma. I’ve lost count of the number of shops we’ve traipsed around in a mad panic, the day before going on holiday, over the past few years.
This is where Jacamo has stepped in and filled a fussy-sized gap. It’s not a shop the NLM has ever tried before but now he has I expect many of his outfits will come from there. At 6’5″ he often finds it tricky to find clothes that fit him to his high exacting standards, but the tops, shirts and shorts that he picked from Jacamo all work really well. No accidental crop top situations or super short shorts here, thank you very much.
I should probably also point out here that the NLM is incredibly fussy when it comes to photos – i.e. he’d rather not be in them. In fact, he visibly winces when the camera lens is turned on him, so getting any holiday snaps with him in often proves impossible. (I trawled through our photos from last summer and there are about two with him in, which made it look like I’d taken the kids away on my own.) These photos, then, are an absolute breakthrough. And I put it all down to him wearing clothes he feels comfortable and happy in.
The NLM went for the military style shirt and embroidered polo shirts, both in a longer length. He also went for the cargo shorts and the Fenchurch Venue slip-on shoes, which he says are comfier than his Toms – high praise!
The attention to detail on the clothes is great too – especially when they’re such a good price (the shorts are £25 and the shirt – above – is £15). I love the shoulder button detail on the shirt and the extra pocket on the shorts.
It’s been so great to see the NLM really relaxed in what he’s wearing this holiday and not shying away from the camera. It means that, although we’ve only been here a week so far, we’ve already got some really lovely photos with him in.
Thanks to Jacamo for working with me on this post. For more information about how I work with brands check out my Work With Me page.
I like the shoes. My husband would never wear red though.

Love the outfit choices. It’s so hard to choose for men isn’t it they can be super fussy!
Claire at Tin Box Traveller says
Our other halves have so much in common! Mine says he hates clothes then is really fussy about them. He’s also awkward in front of the camera. You got some lovely snaps!
Those shoes look really cool with his smart shorts. They really fit him well. I’ll have to pass the name of the shop on to my OH as he struggles for length at 6’5″ too!
It looks like you had a great time away as well!
We’re having the best time! Going too quickly!

I can never buy clothes for the husbeast as he just returns them when they are not to his standard. I have to say I love the shoes. They give his outfits a real pop of colour
They’re lovely aren’t they?!
Wow, they are a great price. I hadn’t heard of the brand before, heading off to check it out now.
They’re fantastic – definitely expect he’ll be shopping there again in the future x
