From a store with a woman at the counter.
I’m going to come out and say that this is problematic. There are plenty of women who have a keen eye on menswear, including the kick-ass canarycoal. I would totally buy a suit from her. Use your own other taken judgement.
All my ill-fitting suits that sit in my closet because I never wear them were sold to me by a salesman. Conversely, the last time I went to Brooks Brothers and bought a blazer, it was sold to me by a saleswoman and altered in-store by a woman.
My point is that it depends on the knowledge you have as a customer going into the process and the knowledge of the salesperson guiding you through it. Gender really has nothing to do with it.
TOPSHOP as reported is taking over 830 N Michigan, formerly occupied by Borders which was vacated January 2011.
This week, vinyl banners were put up and an expected opening date of Fall 2011 was revealed.
This is literally less than a block away from work.. I seriously CAN’T WAIT! Fall 2011 needs to come sooner..
I don’t know much about Topshop, but I’ll be sure to report back on it for those wondering when it opens.
