Arcadia Group Ltd
Burton was set the challenge by the owner of the brand, Sir
Philip Green to design the perfect single breasted black suit for the
autumn/winter 2010 season. Each suit, as well as the accompanying
formal white shirt, was given the brief to look great on any of their
customers but without the bespoke Saville Row price tag.
With Burton's renowned heritage for tailoring dating back to 1903, Sir Philip
automatically thought the brand would be able to crack this suiting conundrum. Over
the years Burton has achieved such accolades as producing uniforms for British
troops in both World War I & II, creating the demob suit (leading to the company
coining the phrase "the full Monty") and suiting and booting the winning England
World Cup team in 1966.
Additionally, Burton has dressed such diverse celebrities as Vinnie Jones, Sean
Connery, Joe Cole, Bobby Moore and Steve Jones, all of whom know the power of a well
Although a hard task to crack, the team have achieved what can only be described as
producing a suit which looks great on any man.
The perfect black suits come in four styles, with two slim and two tailored fits creating a clean and
masculine silhouette for autumn/winter 2010. This, coupled with the fabric choice of
black mohair, as well as the varied lapel widths including a slim and wide peak and
a notch lapel, ensure that every man can wear the look this season.
Burton was originally founded in 1903 under the name The Cross-Tailoring Company. It
quickly became popular and expanded into hundreds of outlets and factories across
the United Kingdom. Today, it is a staple on most high streets and a popular
retailer for men's fashion including gifts for men,
casual clothing and men's t-shirts, men's shirts and men's suits, men's shoes and jeans.
