Today, our sister site reports that Topman has opened up a General Store in London's Shoreditch neighborhood. They also report that it's kind of similar to the J.Crew men's shop in New York, what with it's photography books and vintage furniture. They wonder: "Is it a coincidence that there's a J. Crew Men's Store right next to the New York Topshop flagship? Inspiration, perhaps, Sir Philip Green?" [Racked National]
