NEED TO KNOW:
THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE
September is upon us, the month where we leave summer behind and head into fall. But don’t be sad that the sun is leaving us, as a new season means new style, such as tracksuits and leather biker jackets. Here’s what we’re looking forward to…
1. LEATHER JACKETS
From the iconic black to pristine white, Topman has introduced a number of leather biker jackets in an array of colors – including blue, the must-have shade for the new season. A great piece that you can pull out at anytime of year.
2. OKTOBER FEST - CENTRAL PARK
If you can’t afford the flights to Munich, then head to New York’s Central Park for a weekend full of beer and bratwurst. There’ll be traditional German music as well as…who are we kidding? We’ve already said there’ll be crisp, cold beer, so just grab a stein and get singing!
STARTS SEPTEMBER 21ST
3. JERSEY BLAZERS
Stuck between dressing smart or casual on a night out? Well, why not both? The jersey blazer is the ideal go-between jacket for when you don’t know what the weekend might bring, and goes great with skinny jeans and a plain tee as well as pants and a shirt.
4. SELECTED HOMME – GREASER
Channel your inner rebel with Scandinavian brand Selected Homme, as they’ve just released their new Greaser collection full of varsity jackets, leather jackets and cropped jeans. All you need now is a motorcycle and flip comb.
5. TOPMAN DESIGN FW14
If you’re looking for something unique and in limited supply, then Topman Design is for you. Our fall/winter collection is inspired by Northern dock workers and consists of oversize double breasted coats and chunky roll necks.
TOPMAN DESIGN COMING SOON
6. COORDINATING TRACKSUITS
The ‘90s Manchester Britpop era uniform is finally making a comeback. After years of being forgotten, the tracksuit is now bigger than ever thanks to coordinating prints. You can dig through your dad’s old clothes and hope to come across a retro treasure, or you can invest in one of our new branded styles.
6. DOUBLE LAYERED JACKETS + COATS
Before you know it we’ll have snow (but most likely rain) up to our hips and be stuffing our faces with turkey sandwiches. Our wrapping up solution for the new season is double layering, such as placing denim jackets under parkas. Staying warm never looked so good.
8. THE VINES RETURN
The vines are BACK after years of hibernation. You may remember the Australian band’s chaotic riffs and piercing vocals from the early 2000s in tracks such as ‘Get Free’ and ‘Ride’, but from September 2nd you can listen to their new record ‘Wicked Nature’. Nostalgia at its best.
9. GEOMETRIC PRINT TOPS
Looking for something a little more unusual than your archetypal stripes and polka dots? Well we’re all about geometric prints for the new season, appearing in everything from knitwear to socks. They’re great for adding chaotic detailing to any outfit.
Say goodbye to your social life (unless you plan on spending it in a bar) as it’s time for the NFL season. We’ve got our money on the Denver Broncos, but if you’re not into your football, we suggest taking up a hobby. Origami, anyone?
