New York gets all the international brands first, but that doesn't mean the good citizens of Los Angeles have to be completely left out of the fun. After yesterday's bombshell dropped about Muji's online store, we were greeted this morning with the news that Ron Herman will be carrying Topman, the menswear collection by British fast-fashion retailer Topshop, which just opened a big US flagship in Manhattan. The line is only at the Ron Herman on Melrose, and it's selling out fast, so if you or someone you love is a fashionable man, get over there pronto. (Caveat: We're talking about the skinniest of skinny ties here, which isn't for everyone—see this dissenting opinion over at Racked NY.) Sadly, it doesn't sound like Ron Herman is going to start carrying the women's line any time soon.
