A few days ago I was invited to the Topman store in Knightsbridge to sample their ‘THIS IS TAILORING’ collection and start my personal summer a few weeks earlier than expected. In keeping with tailoring traditions the suits on offer have been reimagined in new ‘warmer handle textures’. Perfect for al those prom, wedding and race days coming up this summer.
Although I’ve been in London for almost two years now I don’t think I’ve fully explored Knightsbidge before this day. Knightsbridge is home to many luxury shops, including the department stores Harrods and Harvey Nichols, and flagship stores of many British and international fashion houses, including those of London-based shoe designers Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik.
Topman – This Is Tailoring
As of last Thursday TOPMAN occupies the basement of the existing TOPSHOP space at 70 Brompton Road, Knightsbridge. The original store space opened in May 2010 trading over 3 floors, with TOPMAN moving into the lower ground floor the total shopping space increases to 14,400sq.ft.
To replicate the success of the Oxford Circus Personal Shopping service a brand new Personal Shopping suite will be installed serving both TOPSHOP and TOPMAN customers, with a personal shopper specifically dedicated to TOPMAN appointments. I found the personal shopper to be super friendly and honest which is what you need if you’re not entirely sure about the colour or the fit.
Whichever style you settle on make sure to take it to the onsite tailors who will ensure the perfect fit for your body shape. As a man it’s a nice feeling to wear a well tailored suit, it almost puts an extra spring in your step so don’t cut corners! I settled on a skinny two button burgundy suit although the light blue and grey styles were ridiculously tempting.
