Every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man …

20 May

How timely that a couple of weeks ago I received an invitation to go take a look at the new look Topman in Manchester Arndale? This was an event that was part of #tweetseatmay.

Up until recently, I have been concentrating on helping women to look great and feel fabulous. However, April saw me welcoming my first male clients to be “Colourised” and the word is spreading fast!

So, last week, it was with some trepidation that ventured into the world of Men’s fashion for the first time – well in a professional capacity anyhow!

The first thing I noticed about the store was how spacious it was. It is now the second biggest Topman in the country. Everything was well organised and laid out into separate clearly defined sections and I could see that there was something to suit every Style Personality. It also had a very upmarket feel to it. The very smiley staff were super stylish and super helpful! Its official Topman has seriously upped its ante!

As part of its rebranding, Topman now has a very exclusive Style Room available to shoppers, run by Dave and Ruby. I went along to have a chat about what they do. They are both so enthusiastic and clearly love what their jobs! The room itself is very cool and trendy with an urban feel to it. You immediately leave the hustle and bustle of the store behind and enter into a calming environment. You can chill and enjoy a beer while Dave and Ruby skillfully put together some looks, carefully selected for you . Dave is very knowledgeable about men’s fashion and is a very dapper chap himself to boot! We had a good giggle talking about our past fashion incarnations!

The Style Room is your go to place if you are in need of a new outfit, maybe for a special occasion or perhaps you just fancy a new look? Dave is your man! I promise he won’t let you leave till you are looking phenom! You don’t need to book the Stylist service, although you can do this if you wish. An added bonus is that clothes can be altered, usually the same day, at no extra cost! Now, that is what I call going the extra mile.

Dave and Ruby then took me on a little tour of the store explaining the different looks and trends.

I was very impressed by the suits. There some very sharp numbers with a retro feel and not just your plain navies and charcoals but pillar box red and turquoise no less! I know, not for everyone but its was great to see some bold and bright colours for men. They looked A LOT more expensive than the price tags.

The shoe section was excellent with great price points and a fab selection from smart brogues, though to trainers, again in great colours.

The extensive collection of accessories means that you could easily pick up a whole outfit in one go! Perfect for your Summer Holiday essentials too! If you are popping in say hi to Dave and Ruby from me!

I will certainly be popping in with my Personal Shopping clients!  And you can look forward to receiving more Men’s Fashion styling and tips from me in the future!
