Of all the quickie clothing shops that dish out mass made throwaway garbage nowadays, there’s one company in particular that has become a thorn in my side. The heyday of Forever 21 being incorporated into my wardrobe is over. They have since stopped producing original blazers and now seem to be a rehash of Urban Outfitters. So they’re not even in my thoughts anymore. H&M does put out some cute stuff here and there (I have their coral red suit from this past Spring’s collection) but season after season it’s the repetitive basics that piss me off. But, I digress. Topman is the single most aggravating of these kinds of stores across the country.
Why? You might ask. It comes down to their price tag. Why on Earth would I ever want to dish out $260 for a mass produced blazer that, while very gorgeous, wasn’t tailored to me or wasn’t even in the hands of a designer? And to boot, you can usually find the exact same blazer or jacket at H&M for far much less. People have told me it’s due to their importing into America from the UK. I call bullshit. Want more sales, Topman? Move some of your production over here… or China… or Mexico. Just make it cheaper for me to buy some of your pieces. Trust. If it comes down to me purchasing a $300 item from you or a true designer one from Century 21, rest assured I’ll be going with them. Besides, you’re clothing isn’t really loud enough.
