Conscience-wrestling…..or lack thereof

December 24, 2007
Having returned to the comp after a leisurely Christmas Eve shower I was astounded to discover an email from Topman proclaiming the beginning of their, January[?] sale. My – rather minuscule – conscience buried somewhere amid mounds of materialistic lust discouraged even the opening of the email, denouncing the earliness of the retail extravaganza as unquestionably repulsive. Alas, it is Christmas 2007 and what would Christmas nowadays be, without obligatory splurging? I succumbed…

Highlights include…

56e38 topmanblueshoes

deb61 topmanfrockcoat

fb762 topmanjumper

c2c5e topmanshirt

6e381 topmantee1

And yes, that red trench from a while back has appeared. I haven’t chosen anything just yet but this will be first for wishlisting…

    You definitely picked the best of a bad bunch…. sadly all XS and S sizes are gone leaving my boyf empty handed…

    Mr Style: I must admit that just after posting the blue one caught my eye, I hastened to check sizes and was subsequently distraught, no trenches-red or blue-for me, sadly.Theresa: Hope you score some great pieces!Susie: Gah! It is a nuisance, men of slighter stature really are unfortunate when it comes to Topman. One should think that they might consider manufacturing a greater number of smaller sizes seeing as the majority of their consumers aren’t exactly bulky.DCB.
