The lovely people at Jacamo sent me this Southbay Jacket (RRP £60.00 – available in navy, tan and burgundy) earlier this week and I was both impressed and surprised. Jacamo hasn’t been known as one of the coolest brands for young men, however I have to contest any negativity towards the brand, as this jacket, from overall style to quality, is just fantastic!
The tartan lining is very on-trend and incredibly soft, and the cut of the jacket is perfect. I wear a size small and there’s enough room for a t-shirt and nice chunky jumper underneath, and then the fit is rather snug with a slightly tailored appeal, which I really like. It’s a nice change not to have a winter jacket that is really, really chunky and makes you look like a bit of a frump.
Most importantly, this jacket does its intended job and is very warm but not so puffy that it leaves me sweating on the train on the way to work on those chilly mornings. I would even highly recommend this or something similar for a lightweight, warm coat for those evenings on the town or down the pub, as there’s plenty of pockets for your wallet and phone, too!
