The Top Student Picks at Jacamo

Menswear on the high street can seem somewhat lacking at times – and if you’re not a standard small size that fits into the likes of Topman or H&M, it can be despairing to try and find anything current, tailored or affordable to add to your wardrobe.

That’s where Jacamo comes in: offering great ranges of both own brand and third-party designer wear in sizes small right through to 5-XL, the widest variety available in the UK.

Top Student Buy: Ellessee Sports Backpack – £20.00

A top sports brand but without the premium price point you might expect, this Ellessee bag is ideal for lugging your laptop, books and other essentials between lectures and classes. Practical and sporty with the big Ellessee logo, the black finish is smart enough that it can be dressed up or down; and it looks as though you’ve splashed the cash on a brand-name backpack rather than a cheap one.

The main zipper compartment is big enough to fit a 15” laptop or tablet with room to spare, and smaller items can be slotted into the inner mesh pocket, side pockets, or front zipper.

Top Student Buy: Puma Essential Oversized Logo Hoodie – £40.00

Everyone needs a hangover hoodie, and as far as we’re concerned: this should be it! The classic sports hoodie but updated to be extra-large, you can buy your usual size and still snuggle up within it. Made of 70% cotton, the inside is warm and soft and a classic kangaroo pocket on the front can hold your phone… and paracetamol!

Ribbed sleeves and a waist give a more tailored look than your standard jumper, and the large Puma logo demonstrates a bit of effort, even if none has actually been made. Wear with jeans and trainers, ready with your gym gear, or chuck on over your pyjamas; whatever your mood dictates!

Top Student Buy: Sekonda Gents Leather Strap Watch – £34.99

Never be late for a lecture again… unless you sleep in, that is. This classic shaped gents watch is elegant whilst not being too ‘try-hard’, and will go with anything. The brown leather strap is neutral enough it can be worn with all colours, and the high-polished stainless steel case with silver sunray dial includes day and date functionality, luminescent accents for quick checks in the dark; and the whole thing is water-resistant to 50m.

It may be manual, but that’s what’s great about it – there’s no relying on your phone battery to be charged to tell the time!
