Advantages: Good quality clothing
Disadvantages: Some of the clothes are a bit bleughh..
When I was younger in my college days. I used to buy every single one of my clothing items from Topman. I remember logging onto the site at 7am in the morning, just before the sale was about to start.
With the famous "student NUS discount code". I think I spent around £30 and managed to get a brand new wardrobe. Some of the prices in the sales were ridiculous!
But for this review, I'm going to talk about my recent purchases I made off Topman.co.uk
-- What I brought --
I brought some jeans and a plain black jumper as my wardrobe needed a fresh look to it. I didn't get the clothes from the sale section. This is because I tried to look through some of the items and I question why anyone would want to wear any of this rubbish. Either my style is outdated or the style today is to wear t-shirts with pink paint splattered all over them, with the words, "DORK" written in big bold writing. It's certainly a lot different.
Anyway, I paid £25 the jeans and £15 for the jumper. I purchased medium size and managed to blag a free standard shipping code. I paid via Paypal, as I find that the safest way to make payment online.
Delivery took around 3 working days to arrive and the items were as described on the website. There's an option where you can pay extra and get next day delivery. I haven't tried it, but there's nothing wrong in waiting a couple of days to save around £5.95.
I tried them on as soon as I finished work. The jeans fitted perfectly. But the jumper was a bit tighter than the usual medium than I'm used to. The material seemed slightly thinner than I imagined it was going to be to. If you do find a medium size on the Topman website, it's probably best you take the chance with a size bigger, (large size). Apart from the thinness of the material, the clothing were pretty good quality. Much better compared to other budget stores. "Cough Cough... Primark". Although saying that, I did get some holiday clothes from Primark and they did the job just fine, haha.
-- Conclusion --
Overall, I'm pleased with my purchases. To find some normal plain clothes on their website, without the silly words on can be a quite difficult. But they were great quality and hopefully like the other items I've brought in the past they last me a good year or two. The standard shipping is faultless. I don't think it's worth paying an extra £5 for postage.
Summary: Good value
