Burton has introduced the Montague Burton collection for autumn/winter 2011, a carefully edited clothing range that draws on Burton’s heritage as a British brand with over 100 years’ worth of history and style archives. The Montague Burton collection includes stylish men’s jackets, coats, jumpers, cardigans, Burton suits and men’s accessories.
Jackets and coats form the basis of this heritage collection for the cold weather months. Based on jackets and coats from the brand’s first designs, their authenticity is maintained by being made in the same British mills and with the same British fabrics as they were in the early 1900’s. Tweed and herringbone feature heavily within the collection, giving the range a country feel, and extra details like suede elbow patches add to the look and define them as heritage-inspired pieces.
In keeping with the mood of the season, colours are typically autumnal, with warm greens and browns offset with neutral based camels, stones and oatmeals. Texture is a key focus for the Montague Burton collection for autumn/winter too, with lots of chunky jumpers and cardigans on offer. Whilst heavy cable knit jumpers are a practical way to keep warm in the colder months, they also look the part and are very on-trend this season.
The Montague Burton collection offers a smart kind of casual wear that is more classic and traditional than Burton’s mainstream men’s clothing, and features tailoring too – the very way in which Burton made its name all those years ago. Burton’s mens suits continue to be as premium looking as ever. They are designed to be fashionable but entirely wearable. A Montague Burton suit is an investment item that can be an occasion suit for years to come.
Aside from the main Montague Burton line, there are also accessories to complement the pieces from the rest of the collection or to act as standout items when mixed with regular Burton clothing. The salt and pepper tweed holdalls, knitted scarves and woollen flat caps are all classic men’s accessories not only for the autumn/winter season but, like the tailoring, they’re smart enough to wear season after season.
