Burton’s Black Label Style The Perfect White Shirt

Burton’s Black Label has executed 4 classic white shirts that are the ideal accompaniment to the perfect black suit, giving a new dimension to mix and match shopping.

These limited edition shirts are all made from luxury cotton and have specific collar formations to suit every man and every occasion. To identify this key shape more easily, each shirt has been given the name of a London borough that epitomizes its cool fashion credentials.

The Hoxton is a slim fit shirt, with its penny collar and a single button cuff is perfect underneath a slim fit suit that has a nod to the mod about it.

The Knightsbridge is clean and simple. This shirt on a tailored block has a point collar and a double button cuff, perfect for a smart suit or formal attire.

The Soho is a reaction to the Knightsbridge, the Soho is a much slimmer fit and has a slim point collar and single cuff to match. This shirt looks great with a thin blade tie.

The Mayfair provides a tailored fit shirt with a fold back single button cuff and cut away collar that creates a squarer neck line.

Added to this the fact each shirt comes with its own removable collar bones and given that there are only 100 available of each style, its easy to see why these classic shirts are proof that less is more this autumn winter.

Each of the 4 limited edition shirts will be made available as an online exclusive through the Burton UK website from the 15th of October.

Topman Design Announces 2nd Solo Show To Be Held At The Royal Opera House

Topman Design has announced it is to showcase its second consecutive solo show at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden on September 22nd as part of the ever growing menswear day at London Fashion Week.

Until last season when the debut solo show was held at the official British Fashion Council (BFC) Tents, Topman Design had shown on-schedule as part of the increasingly successful MAN event which Topman set up alongside Fashion East eleven seasons ago. This season, Topman Design will share the Royal Opera House venue with MAN, whose show will follow Topman Design later in the afternoon at 12.30pm.

This season the Topman Design show will be streamed live on topman.com and londonfashionweek.co.uk – as well as live in the windows of Topman’s famous Oxford Street store – and, for the very first time this season, a very limited number of pieces from the show will be made available to purchase on-line directly after the show at topman.com.

Topman Design is a directional premium collection which is stocked online at topman.com, the London Oxford Circus and New York Flagships as well as key international stores including La Foret in Tokyo, Incu in Sydney and Shine in Hong Kong. With a growing, almost cult following, the collections have evolved over the seasons under the creative direction of Alister Mackie of AnOther Man, a leading fashion director and superstylist, and Topman Design Director, Gordon Richardson and his dedicated and talented in-house design team.

Gordon Richardson said: “The decision to show apart from MAN last season was welcomed by both the MAN and the Menswear Panel who collectively agreed that it was the right time for us. We established a consistent design ethic and we continue to have a good following both giving us the confidence we needed to move on and allow MAN to continue to nurture new young talent which is after all its purpose.”

Burton Unveils The Perfect Black Suit

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 cut suit.

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.
