90:10 – Tapping into the inner child

90 10

Dan is right.

All the men I know have something in their lives that connects to the inner child. Man never completely grow up… they are committed to maturing and “evolving” but they never full grow up. 90% grown up…the other 10% not so much… sums it up just about right.

Anyhow, 90:10 is a men’s clothing line designed specifically to preserve the boyish part of our man. Currently they offer hoodies, T-shirts, sweatshirts and polo’s. Their design is simple yet elegant, childish but still suitable for a full grown man.

Mark was sent a navy blue 90:10 signature embroidered pullover hoodie to review. Features of the hoodie include:

  • Made from 100% pure organic cotton
  • Double kangaroo front pockets
  • A draw string neck line
  • Lightweight yet warm
  • Close-fitting
  • Small logo

90 10 – Tapping into the inner child

The first sensation which grabs you once you have opened your package is the amazing softness of the fabric. We are quite a sporty family (at least when it comes to clothing) so we have our fair share of tracksuits and hoodies but it is really quite a rare thing to have something so soft. It is not possible for me to describe it in words; you will just have to order one to feel it for yourself 😉

But back to the hoodie – The 90:10 signature embroidered pullover hoodie is suitable for being worn all year round, no matter what nature has installed for us. This isn’t one of those mega thick hoodies which make you look like a snow man; this one is manufactured from medium weight cotton, which means that can even be worn as an undergarment if needed.

90:10 is also fairly unique in this modern world of corporate takeover, they are small, young(ish) and above all genuinely enthusiastic about their products and their company and best of all they want to do better. They are still connected to each other in such a way that customer feedback can have a noticeable impact on the way they do business, I know from experience. If they think your idea is an improvement over what they currently do they are only too happy to step it up to a new level of customer service.
So in conclusion 90:10 is a modern company with the quality of foundations that sets it on course to go far in the market place. I appreciate the cutting edge customer service and the absolute top level in quality from their products.

I have their website as a favourite in every browser, need I say more?

Jacamo – Top Menswear Brands – Review and Giveaway

Flintoff by Jacamo Military Jacket

I am not sure how the man in your life is dealing with the issue of clothes shopping but my other half totally hates it. For Mark this is almost like a punishment to go to town in order to buy some clothes. Thankfully nowadays we have the internet and great online shops like Jacamo, which makes life so much easier!

Jacamo stocks top menswear brands you want (or your man wants) in the size you need. You can purchase there footwear up to size UK 15; chest size from S to 5XL, waist size from 34” to 62” and trousers length from 27” up to 36” – so they really stock clothing for all shapes and sizes 🙂

To make the shopping experience easier and more convenient for you Jacamo stocks many great brands. With names like Bellfield, Ben Sharman, Joa Browns, Firetrap, Rockport, just to name a few, there is a huge selection to pick from.

Mark was offered an opportunity to try something from Flintoff by Jacamo range designed by Freddie Flintoff. This famous English cricketer says: “All of the clothes in my collection are things that I like to wear and feel comfortable in”.

The Flintoff by Jacamo collection currently includes pieces like blazers, shirts, jumpers, sweaters, suit jackets, suit trousers or even a waistcoat and if you prefer a more casual look you can get jeans, polo shirts, or even a hoodie.

Marks top pick from the collection was a Flintoff by Jacamo Military Jacket. This jacket has a cool relaxed style and has carried on the military trend for the season. It is constructed with full zip fastening and two top and bottom pockets. Also has an inner drawcord fastening at the waist. It can be worn throughout the year making this a great purchase!

We must agree with this description.

We took it on holiday and it proved to be the perfect wear for colder evenings. The jacket looks very stylish yet casual. The biggest plus: it is made from cotton, which means that it is soft and pleasant to the touch. The jacket is machine washable which will allow you to save on dry-cleaning bills. 🙂

Mark has totally fallen in love with his new jacket, proclaiming that it keeps him warm in the wet and wind and yet is light enough to fling over an arm or shoulder should the sun pop out for one last blast of heat. He was particularly happy with the large storage ability offered from all the pockets. Looking snug as a bug when all fastened up he could indeed be quite happy in even quite inclement weather. Though the more he falls for it the less my chances of getting hold of it to do the wash test, evidently it is still looking brand new so I will have to get back to you on the ease of washing point…
