An extraordinary mens blog for the ordinary man
We all know that suiting is the new rebellion and smartening up your appearance is the modern equivalent of what wearing a leather biker jacket and denim jeans were in the 1950’s. Well as if to absolutely confirm this trend, the trendsetters of the High Street and guardians of cool, TOPMAN are introducing a SUPER Premium range of suiting for Autumn 12. Whats quite so SUPER about them is quite clear, just look at the images, but please like the warning before Power Rangers or the A-Team the models in these shoots are trained professional so please don’t copy their actions.
Each collection has been designed using the finest quality fabrics and cut to create a luxurious and premium finish and aesthetic. The collections are; Topman’s take on traditional Harris Tweed, Made in England where all cloth is woven and manufactured in the UK and the inaugural Super Premium collection which uses the finest Italian fabrics to give a bespoke and luxurious feel and finish.
With the Harris Tweed range, the brand introduces a nostalgic look at the fabric. Traditionally woven textures including berry coloured herringbones, coloured houndstooth and brushed plaids.Focus is given through use of fabric rather than styling which is kept simple and understated.
A premium and robust collection of suiting and blazers the Made in England collection combines traditional heritage fabrics and details with contemporary shapes and bold colours to create something altogether new and refreshingly modern. All cloth is woven and manufactured in the UK. Fabrics are predominantly Shetland based, big up the Caledonian massive, wools in both plain weaves and herringbone pattern in a range of colours including mustard, raspberry and aqua, giving the range a much more contemporary feel.Three piece suiting in peat brown, navy and industrial grey also appear alongside functional blazers and a beautiful navy marl wool overcoat.
Lastly, you have the Super Premium collection is a sophisticated and elegant suiting collection designed using premium Italian fabrics. A nod to bespoke details such as two tone dobby linings, functional working cuffs, side adjusters and half lined trousers add refined working features to this collection of suiting to give it a premium and luxurious look.
All very different but come together to give a rich, luxurious traditionally yet undoubtable modern range.
