London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 30, 2008 -- 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 Burtonâs 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.
Notes to Editors: Heritage tailoring is available online and in London, Bluewater, Liverpool, Bristol, Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham, Edinburgh, Chesterfield and Dublin from September 2008. Suits start at Â£169 for a two-piece. Sizes range from 36S - 48L. Please check prices and availability before going to press.
