Topman to launch premium suiting range

Topman will launch a premium suiting line for autumn 12 to capitalise on growing consumer demand for tailoring.

The six-piece collection will launch worldwide at the end of September and will be extended in time for Christmas.

“No-one is doing young fashion [premium] suits,” Topman design director Gordon Richardson told Drapers at Arcadia’s press day today. He added that demand for tailoring at Topman was particularly strong in the US.

The suits, which are made from Italian fabrics, will retail for £250. Details include longer lines, peak lapels, fully-functioning cuffs and finished turn-ups on trousers. A woven jacquard is used on an evening version.

  • Topman is too far down the food chain to sell suits at £250.00. It's customers base is far too young to warrant this and for the U.K at least, this will not work and will simply be another cash draining exercise to please a few misguided souls in their board room.

    You have to wonder sometimes that the people who make these decisions never look out of the window and see what people are actually wearing, because it certainly is not suits.

  • loads of young people wear suits to be honest. But £250 for a topman "made in china" suit is not the way and not worth it.
