Design Features

JAM clothes have been designed to include subtle additions or modifications to allow the wearer to put on and take off with ease, and to wear with comfort.
But, our design features are so simple, sometimes it isn't clear exactly what they are..
Not to worry - below is a breakdown of all the designs, so you have a better understanding of what it is you are purchasing!


BLOCK & CONFETTI JACKET FOR WHEELCHAIR USERS


SHORTER BACK

 
The back of our Jackets are shorter than usual to prevent extra fabric bunching up between the wearer and the wheelchair. It also means you don't have to worry about trying to squeeze your hands down the back of the wheelchair user to push the bottom of the Jacket fully down when putting it on.


FULLY ZIPPABLE SLEEVES/SIDES 

Both sides of our Jackets are fully zippable. When putting on, the zip connects at each wrist and goes all along the sleeve and side of the Jacket. When taking off, you just find the zip at the side of the Jacket and slide it up until it disconnects at the wrist. By having the sides of the Jacket fully zippable, means you no longer need to struggle to get Jacket sleeves over hands and arms with high spasticity or positioned in ways that are difficult to manoeuvre sleeves around. Did we mention the zips are covered, so the Jacket looks like any other?


OPENS UP LIKE A PONCHO

Due to the previous two features mentioned, the Jacket can be fully opened up and put on and taken off, just like a Poncho. This is what allows the Jacket to be put on and taken off with ease whilst seated in a Wheelchair. The Jacket simply gets placed over the head then zipped up! This means no more fiddling trying to move forward and back in the wheelchair to get the Jacket around the back and on both arms, as a traditional Jacket would.


VELCRO WRISTS

All of our Jackets have a strip of Velcro along both wrists. This allows the wrists to be tightened so hands don't go missing in big sleeve openings, simple as that!


NO TAGS 
None of our Jackets have tags at the back of the neck. No tags means no frustration from an itchy/ticklish tag. Easy fix!


And finally..
COMES WITH IT'S OWN CARRY BAG!

So you can hang your Jacket off your wheelchair when it's not in use and don't have to go searching around in your bag for it when you want to pop it on quickly! Yippee! 



JAM LONG SLEEVE TOPS AND TEES


BAMBOO FABRIC

Our tops are made of 95% Bamboo. This means they're extra soft! For those that have sensory differences, wearing comfortable clothing can make a world of difference to how you feel!
But side note.. who doesn't love a super soft top?! Bamboo has a heap of other benefits such as being hypoallergenic, moisture wicking, anti-bacterial and breathable and Thermo-regulating. We could go on..


ELASTANE FABRIC

The other 5% of our tops is Elastane. This is what gives it that great stretch! For those that have physical difficulties, trying to manoeuvre sleeves and necklines around arms and heads, can cause great difficulty and damage to the top. This extra stretch means no more worries about losing the tops shape, or ripping the seams when trying to stretch it over arms and heads. That little bit of extra stretch can go a long way!


FLAT SEAMS

The seams on all of our tops are flat. This is much less irritating than traditional seams. Often people with sensory differences can find small features like seams extremely irritating, so why not get rid of that?!


NO TAGS

None of our tops have tags or care labels! This just adds to the comfort of them, and eliminates irritation often caused by tags.


SLEEVE LOGOS

We've made sure our JAM logo isn't just on the front of our tops.
Why? Often people who use a wheelchair have the front of their tops covered by straps or different wheelchair accessories, making them lose the funky logos on the front! Our simple fix - adding our logo onto the sleeves so no one misses out on showing off their JAM.
