has nice scarfs for 3quid.
that is all.
I've never got anything from there, I get really scared seeing loads of the same thing on the racks.
If I buy any clothing it must be like the only one in the shop, imagine seeing someone else witht he same top?
And the vintage store has like nicer scarves for Â£4 anyway.
smell of old people
true as they have been washed in Bold washing powder.
I know they guy, he looks like Preston from BB which makes me laugh.
from topman - Â£15 in the sale!
but i don't like going in, i feel like the staff are judging me for being the shaggy haired, scruffy rock fan stereotype that i am
was knitted by my girlfriend's nan. so i got it for NOTHING.
in your face top man!
they haven't signed up for the whole 'paying poor people in money rather than rice' thing. this is according to the guardian or someone. so fuck 'em.
appreciate the intricate work of a five year old Chinese craftsman
seeing as Moribund stole my last one.
you can have the one I'm making.
I have a plain black one that isn't quite long enough, which shall keep my neck warm in the meantime.
you ever been to the topman on oxford street?
it's actually the most scenester place I have ever seen, if you look around you'd think the bravery gave birth to a million people and they all decided to shop in there all day, every day.
It's full of 'modded' rubbish, like they tried to 'distort' some green flash trainers and they basically just ripped them to shreds and then painted a stensil on them, it looks total poo. BUT in general it does have nicer clothes in there than the normal topmans.
yeah there is actually some really ace things in there, the normal topmans can be a bit boring.
They sell plain coloured things for very small prices. And they always have really good music on.
but ill pop in during sale time. most of the stuff in there is terrible, but for a cheap shirt or scarf in the sale tis good...
hadnt heard theyre particulary known for child labour/poor wages....but then again i dont really do much research to see what Im buying is ethically sound...
reduced from Â£45 to a tenner there yesterday.
is scenesterish - you should go into Manchester's Urban Outfitters, hands down sceneist shop in the city. They all dress like explosions in their own shop as if management hand picked their clothes. it's about as experimental as the dummies they dress each day. Almost everyone seems to be picked because they're a) 'trendy' b) 'alternative' c) 'quasi attractive'
that choose staff based on image alone. It as if good looking is actually thought of as an excellent skill. I suppose they think like will attract like and have a vision of what sorts of people will buy their product which is not so apparent in other shops like say Tesco. They just want families through the door whereas somewhere like morgan employs loads of blonde women, HMV will haul in a mixed bag of music geeks who they want to appear knowledgable and Waterstones will have an abundance of bespectacled well-read sorts in Librarian esque clothing.
i just bought my first cardigan from them
