I applaud people who can look original when solely shopping at Topman. I mean every 2nd person I see is wearing Topman .. not a lot of choice here and it does beat H&M I guess .

^ It's v.hard, I do find it's of the utmost importance that one AVOID all the fluro/neon nonsense and some of the "graphic tees" type schtuff to prevent coming off like a walking advert.

I agree, their sizing is quite inconsistent. There are definite gems to be found from them, though.

Has anyone seen their Topman Design range? Some of the pieces are gorgeous.

Has anyone ever bought a jacket from them? I need one and I am looking at their jackets right now. Even though I love topmans styles, I definitely don't want to invest in something important like a jacket that turns out to be cheaply made.

I've bought at least three.

Don't go for the graphic-patterned windbreakers as they are SYN-thetic. Terrible but I always buy em when they get cheeeeeeeap.

Their faux-leather jackets are nice.

How is the quality of the line...I've had the site bookmarked forever and want to buy, but I'm always weary of sizing and sending it back overseas can become complicated.

The quality is of a relatively mediocre standard, basically, the quality is as good as any other high-street store but it's marked up miiiiiiiiiiiles.

Seriously, I've bought jeans that originally retailed at approx. 50 euro at a reduced price of like...8. Therefore, hopefully you're getting my point, they only reason they can afford to sell off stock this cheap is that it is, essentially, well, cheeeeap.

The sizing as I think it's been mentioned before is rather dire at times. I vary from XXS-S-M in tops/jackets etc. but I've found jeans/pants to be rather accurately sized.

now that they ship to the u.s., i was also looking at some of their stuff.
but like some of you, i am worried about quality.


i don't think i would buy a suit/blazer from them,
but something like a waistcoat or a pair of pants,
which are usually easier to create.
of course, most of the pants aren't even 100% wool
and are they lined...i don't know.
so that is kind of a put off.

the website doesn't do that great of a job describing each item as well.

i know, you get what you pay for, but at the prices they are charging
you would think you would get 100% cotton on the shirts.

i've been to Topman once and all i thought was "hipster scum". it just looks,..... really british, but more in a Pete Doherty way, less in a dressy way. Which is sad.

How long does it take for Topman to ship to the U.S., usually?

Ive ordered a few pieces from the UK (not Topman) and I was able to get it in about 3 weeks...Best of luck..

On a similar note: I read somewhere that they plan on expanding to the US (yay!), in particular, a store here in Boston (double-yay!)...

Until we meet again...

Anyone buy anything from Topman Design? Is it worth the price?
