So it turns out I have an incredibly photogenic boyfriend! Who knew?! Spoiler alert: I did, haha! This was a really fun post for me because I got to be behind the camera for once! Sam was comfortable giving me total creative and aesthetic control, which was a blast! I’m definitely interested in doing more masculine styling, in the future.
Jacamo is actually a brand that Sam wears regularly, so we didn’t have to do any guessing in terms of size and fit. In tops he generally wears a 3X long, and in bottoms he usually wears a 44 short.
It appears I did well choosing a top because Sam LOVED the pattern! The chambray is so soft and mega wearable. It’s worth getting out the iron for, you know? Jacamo is great for button up shirts with a bit of whimsy. Sam also has a white shirt with paper airplanes on it, and a navy shirt with raining clouds on it, also from Jacamo.
These chinos are a great wardrobe staple. They’re ideal for dressing up with a button-up shirt and proper shoes, or dressing down with a tee shirt + cardigan and trainers. The trousers have good stretch, but don’t get all stretched out while being worn which is a plus. AND they come with a belt! Man, why don’t women’s trousers come with a belt?!
To complete the look I selected a pack of pin-up girl socks by Joe Browns (which he IS wearing, you just can’t see them. Your girl needs to work on her photography skills, haha!) and these grey shoes that I was worried Sam wouldn’t be into. Initially he struggled a bit getting into them, but after a bit of effort he succeeded. He tells me that they’re SUPER comfortable and that he doesn’t have a blister in sight. After shooting they’re even more broken in and are more comfortable than ever.
