Burton Has Announced The Creation Of A New Line Of Products To Coincide With The Prostate Cancer Charity Event Of Movember

Movember is an annual charity event staged in the month of November designed to change the face of men’s health. Males across the UK – MO Bros – are encouraged to grow a moustache during the month to help raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer, starting from a clean shaven state on 1 November.

A Movember site is set up where MO Bros and MO Sistas can pledge their support to the cause, with the option to create moustache growing teams, sponsor MO growers and upload pictures of facial hair growth.

To help raise funds, Burton is releasing an exclusive limited edition MO Gear men’s fashion line that includes humorous retro T-shirts, a flock (Gala Party) shirt and funky underwear. One pound from the sale of each item will be donated to the Prostate Cancer Charities.

As well as the clothing line, Burton will be releasing a MO application for the iPhone which will be available to download for free from the Burton website from the start of Movember.

“Burton is thrilled to be part of Movember in the UK and Ireland. With our network of 412 stores and a big online campaign, we are committed to spreading the word about men’s health issues and raising funds for Prostate Cancer Charities. We look forward to a successful and exciting Movember 2009 campaign.” Commented Wez Taylor, Burton Brand Director

Burton Is Celebrating The Resurgence Of The 80’s And The Reuniting Of Ska Legends ‘The Specials’, With The Launch Of A Limited Edition Tonic Suit

With the 80’s making a forceful statement on the high street once again, the men’s fashion world is drawing influence from many cultural facets, from art to music. To celebrate this new trend and the 30th anniversary tour of cult band The Specials, Burton has designed two new exclusive versions of their classic tonic suit and used key design elements from their archives to create the new ‘Mod’ suit.

More prevalent than with other musical styles, achieving exactly the right look has always been a defining part of the Mod and Ska movement. Sharp suits with precise lines and clean cut styling epitomized the look of 2 Tone, and now with the reforming of The Specials to celebrate their 30th anniversary, the look is also set to make its return.

Available in deep blue and charcoal, the limited edition suit is 100% wool and has an extra finish which creates a slight sheen to give it the tonic look. The style is a one button single breasted slim fit jacket with a narrow peak lapel, while the trouser is narrower on the calf and thigh and at just £99 makes it an affordable style essential for every man. Slim fit tonic waistcoats can be added to help finish the classic ‘Rude Boy’ look.

The Specials tour will see the 2 Tone Coventry Gangsters getting suited and booted again in their iconic suits as they tour 6 venues across England and Scotland in April and May.

The limited edition Burton Tonic Suits will be available in the Bath, Poole, Bluewater, White City, New Enfield, Portsmouth, Liverpool, Swansea, and Braehead stores, as well as online.

Burton, one of the leading mens clothes retailers in the UK, has decided to help UK men achieve the right look this Spring by introducing the Burton Spring Top Ten.

This Spring Burton has introduced a must have Top Ten for the coming season. This is a collection of key interchangeable pieces designed to offer the modern man a complete capsule wardrobe for the season ahead.

Including a comfortable tailored Navy Herringbone Stripe single breasted jacket and matching trouser for a smart look, the collection also provides an entire wardrobe of items which can be transposed for a variety of casual looks. Ubiquitous straight cut jeans, beach tee, polo, grey tipped cardigan and chino trousers make up the main components of the collection, along with this season’s essential check styling details provided by a check bomber jacket and red/blue check casual shirt and tie.

A canvas dispatch bag and grey suede casual shoes help complete the look with their relaxed casual styling and versatility.

“The design team at Burton believe in combining accessible style and great value. We have defined the ten essential smart and casual fashion pieces for the British man to buy into for the spring 2009 season. While selecting this product we made sure Top Ten offered great fit, fabric and detail choice which could be bought as a whole capsule collection or individually to update any contemporary wardrobe.” Jonathan Lovett, Head of Design for Burton

While all the Top Ten pieces have been selected to work perfectly together, their design and versatility also mean they will be able to easily fit in and complement existing wardrobes to add this season’s key touches.

Burton announce VAT price reductions will be passed on to all customers from the 1st December

Following The Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling’s decision to cut Value Added Tax (VAT) from 17.5 per cent to 15 per cent, Sir Philip Green’s Arcadia Group has released a statement on behalf of a group of the high street’s most powerful retailers, confirming they will pass the full VAT cut onto their customers.

The change in the VAT rate will mean huge changes for all the shops in the Arcadia group, as all shelving and register prices will need to be updated. However, Burton, Arcadia, Mosaic Fashions, Bhs, Marks & Spencer, New Look and Next all confirmed in the statement they planned to pass the 2.5% VAT cut on to customers on Monday, or soon afterwards.

The group of retailers covers some of the biggest names on the high street, including; Topshop, Topman, Wallis, Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge, Evans, Burton, Bhs, Oasis, Coast, Karen Millen, Warehouse, Principles, Shoe Studio Group, Jane Norman, New Look and Next fascias.

The statement by Sir Philip said: “Following the recent announcement reducing VAT from 17.5% to 15%, equating to a price reduction of 2.13%, we are pleased to confirm that it is our intention to pass the benefit of this reduction onto our customers.”

The price reduction will be given on standard rated product and will be applied on, or as soon after Monday December 1 as possible.

The statement added that this would, “allow for the complexities of implementing the changes required.”

It is unclear how the price cuts will be implemented, however many retailers are expected to take off the discount at the till point rather than by re-ticketing stock.

For Burton, all mens clothing, mens suits and mens accessories will be adjusted at point of purchase as of 1st December 2008.

Burton Announces Their New Heritage Collection, A Stylish Range Of Quality Contemporary Suiting, Born Out Of A Passion For Traditional Tailoring Methods

Burton, the leading UK menswear retailer, has announced their new Heritage collection. This latest range of stylish quality contemporary suiting is born out of the long held Burton passion for traditional tailoring methods. The collection will be featured in selected stores and online throughout the UK this autumn alongside Burton’s mainline and concession tailoring.

Burton has sought to ensure attention to detail is key throughout the Heritage collection.

These latest mens jackets feature a half canvas construction which forms to the body to give the wearer more comfort. The fabric selections reflect a strong attention to detail with the use of traditional Prince of Wales check and pin stripes inspired by the Burton mens clothing archives.

The fabric selection and labeling of the mens suits take their inspiration from original 1940s, 50s and 60s Burton garments which are then brought up to date with a sharper modern fit. The suits are made from pure merino wool and woven in the British mill first used by Montague Burton over 70 years ago and feature intricate detailing such as trouser brace buttons and an embroidered Burton “B” on the under collar.

Montage Burton once said, “Good clothes develop a man’s sense of self respect”, and the Heritage collection continues his legacy by offering a superior garment at an accessible price.
