Burton announces winner of holiday to New York competition

Clothing giant Burton has announced the lucky winner of its recent competition to give away a free holiday in New York.

The contest, which was run in conjunction with the launch of Men In Black III, was won by Michael Bolton from Leeds, who will now be jetting off to the Big Apple. Mr Bolton also won £250 to spend on his trip.

After finding out he had been selected, Mr Bolton said: “Fantastic news, we can’t quite believe it. We have never been to America, and a trip to New York will be truly awesome. The hustle and bustle of the city and its vibrancy are what appeals the most, we just can’t wait to experience it. I will be taking my partner of 16 years with me – Jennifer Dove. Once again, many thanks for the brilliant news.”

Burton, who specialise in mens suits and clothing, allowed customers to enter the competition via its Facebook app or from its website.

New York is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations and receives around 50 million visitors each year. The city is home to some of the world’s most iconic landmarks, ranging from Times Square to the Statue of Liberty and Central Park.

The latest instalment in the Men In Black series, which was released on 25th May, was set in New York and proved to be both a box office success and hit with critics. The film takes in many of the sites of the city and sees Agent J (Will Smith) having to again save the Earth and his partner Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones). He has travels back to 1960s New York by jumping off the Crysler Building before joining forces with a younger Agent K (Josh Brolin) and facing off against the deadly Boris The Animal (Jermaine Clement).

To celebrate the forthcoming release of the film on DVD and Blu-Ray, Burton are running another competition to give customers the chance to win a weekend break at a four-star hotel in Manchester. Additionally, the men’s jeans experts will give the winner £250 to be spent in-store. That means that the winner would be able to take advantage of the company’s three current Manchester outlets during their trip, or any other of Burton’s 400 UK stores.

The winner of the Men In Black III DVD competition will also receive the chance to take part in a unique wind tunnel flying experience, similar to Will Smith’s character in the film. The competition runs until 30th November and can be entered through the Burton Facebook app.

Burton Introduces International Shipping Service

Burton, a classic British menswear brand, has announced that it now ships internationally. Practically wherever customers are in the world, they’ll now be able to receive their Burton.co.uk orders directly, quickly, and at an affordable price. The new service provides a fuss-free way to shop for men’s fashion items when overseas.

Head of Ecommerce at Burton, Richard Wilson, said of the launch: “International delivery is really exciting for us as a brand – it opens up a window of opportunity for the business, and means we can acquire customers from every corner of the globe. There are places where we believe there is a demand for international delivery already, such as in Germany and Australia – other Arcadia brands are enjoying great success there and we would expect to follow suit, but it’ll be interesting to see which other places are keen to use our new service.”

For loyal fans of men’s fashion, international delivery offers greater flexibility when shopping online. For those jet-setting off on a last-minute holiday minus their swimming trunks, that’s no longer a problem. They can log-on to their laptop, poolside, pick a pair from Burton.co.uk and have them delivered, whether it be to their hotel in Ibiza, or hostel in Thailand. Or for those signed-up for a stint working abroad, there is no need to miss out on must-have fashion trends and beloved British clothes.

With international delivery now one of Burton’s services, it’s a chance for their existing British fans to introduce the brand to their mates abroad, and extend an invitation for new faces to join the Burton following. With birthdays on the agenda year-round, a giftcard may act as a thoughtful present for those living overseas, and a convenient one too, as the recipient can pick and choose their new wardrobe themselves, at their convenience, and have it delivered directly.

Of course, international delivery allows Burton to reach out to new customers and to countries where stores may not yet be available. It’s a way for people from New Zealand to the Caribbean to get to know the Burton brand. With a range of seasonal and transitional items sold all year round at Burton.co.uk, overseas customers will be able to enjoy fashionable clothing from wherever they are in the world, be it summer or winter. For those living down-under in Australia, for example, potential customers will be pleased to know that they can pick up printed t-shirts, lightweight chinos and cardigans during the colder, British months too – they’re not restricted to the British summer season. And for those holed up in Canada, where it’s all about layering to stay warm, hoodies, crew neck jumpers, heavyweight jumpers and winter accessories are available for the majority of the year too.

For Burton fans living abroad, or for those looking to send gifts overseas, chances are Burton.co.uk can deliver straight to their doors.
