Craig of That Dapper Chap visits the brand new Topman store in London’s Knightsbridge on its opening day
|The brand new Topman store in London’s Knightsbridge|
I was super excited to be invited to the opening day of the brand spanking new Topman store at 70 Brompton Road in London.
After seeing the people at Tom Ford in Harrods it was just a skip across the road to see exactly what the new store had to offer. Situated in the lower ground floor of the existing Topshop, which has stood there for a while now, the guys at Topman told me that men would often come out of Harrods and into Topshop while on a shopping spree and were disappointed to find only womenswear on offer. So, not wanting to miss a trick a new Topman opened it’s doors.

With a DJ spinning some tracks there was a real buzz about the place as I made my way around the racks of clothing. I was of course drawn to the suit section, where they had a number of great options on offer. So after a chat with the PR guys I was introduced to Janal, who has recently returned to London after living in Australia and is now their brand new personal shopper and stylist. Janal had put together a rail of clothing for me to try and I couldn’t wait to see what she’d selected for me.
If you’d like to find out more about the Topman personal shopping experience, please take a look at my previous article HERE which explains the whole process.

There were a couple of suits that I’d seen which were unfortunately not available at that point so I’ll make sure I get my hands on those when they come into stores. Janal had selected a beautiful light blue double breasted skinny fit suit, and a light camel single breasted suit and really couldn’t decide between the two! They both looked great and I have to say that I wanted them both!
