The first time I met Gracie Opulanza was at the Me Hotel at London Fashion Week. I had come down to shoot some street style images for MenStyleFashion. Gracie Opulanza is one of a kind she started MenStyleFashion for guys like me. To encourage any man to look the best they can every single day. What the Fashion was going on here was her thoughts. She was particularly appalled at my attire which in my own defense I thought was pretty cool. I could see why, when I met my competition at London Fashion Week. The photographers dressed very well while still working and holding that camera.
What came about after that was a pep talk where Gracie was very keen to get me into some smart clobber. She highlighted that your image counts especially in the fashion arena as a photographer. She got me thinking?
I love urban clothes and have a big collection of such so despite having little or no smarter wear in my closet, I like to think I’m a good judge of quality. Here is my review of a style makeover by Jacamo, an online retailer dedicated to menswear. They also have eight stores across the UK.
Jacamo Collection Transforms Gareth
When I first opened the box the first thing I had was a pale blue linen Jacket by Label:J there was a also a blue shirt with patterned detail and a pair of Charcoal Jeans- both by Mish Mash.
Pale Blue Linen Jacket by Label:J
The linen jacket I love. Its super light and very stylish. It’s a timeless jacket that will be great to wear when going out for an evening in the summer or as Gracie pointed out when I’m working out on my next photo shoot as a photographer. The colour is nice too. I love blue anyway but would have never thought of buying something like this let alone something with a light tone. Top marks.
Charcoal Jeans By Mish Mash
The Jeans by Mish Mash are a nice cut. Normally I find shopping for jeans a particularly soul destroying ordeal, so to be sent some that suits me straight off the bat is a blessing. I guess that Gracie Opulanza knows what she is on about when it come to MenStyleFashion. The jeans are nice charcoal colour and the quality of the denim is good but not too heavy. Again perfect for summer evenings and on my photo shoots.
Blue Shirt With Patterned Detail By Mish Mash
The shirt itself was again from Mish Mash, which personally wasn’t the right cut for me but a well stitched shirt none the less with some nice details across the shoulder. I just did not feel that comfortable in it. But I liked the style.
Definitely something I will be wearing out when I see Gracie next month. Particularly that linen jacket. I really like it, it is my favourite of the lot!
