“ Men's leading fashion chain in the UK and Ireland. „
Burton opened in 1903 by Montague Burton in Chesterfield. After World War II Montague Burton offered men the chance to buy a full suit, comprising jacket, trousers, waistcoat, shirt and underwear, which together became known as 'The Full Monty'. In 1946 the Company acquired the Peter Robinson women's fashion chain. By 1952, the year of Montague Burton's death, the company was the largest multiple tailor in the world.Burton is now one of the leading high street menswear shops in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland it has over 400 stores and is now part of the Arcadia group.
Burton sells a range of clothes including: t shirts, jumpers, jeans, shorts, suits, blazers and shoes. The main competitor for Burton is River Island and H and M but Burton's clothes are different in style and fit to these shops but i would say that Burton is better on style, cost and quality.
I regularly buy my clothes from Burton and i have owned some really nice short sleeve summer clothes costing £22 and i am a big fan of their chinos which fit really well costing only £20. I regularly buy jeans and chinos from Burton because i have a skinny waist and long legs and i find it hard to buy trousers which fit well. Burton offer a range of sizes and i think this is brilliant as i can buy slim fit trousers which have a 30 waist and a 34 inch length.
I feel that Burton's prices are very reasonable and if you are a student with a valid student card they give you an extra 10 % off in store. Burton also have a lot of sales and promotions on in store and online, sometimes for being a Facebook fan on their page i have saved 25% in store. The staff in their shops are very friendly and helpful and i have had no problems with refunds and returns.
I buy from here a lot BUT only when the sales are on. The jeans and chinos i've had from here all faded very fast and do look old quick. The sweatshirts are around £25 but i've gotten 5-6 in the sales for £10 and some as cheap as £7 and all of them started to look old and faded after the first wash. I have binned a few of them after one wear. I'd say its a great budget buy just for the summer but only at sale prices. Hope it helps in your choice.
I've had pieces of Burton clothing many times, it is a great make of clothing and is a good choice for being 'in fashion' at the current times. I feel that Burton's best pieces of clothing or mainly summer clothing which is rather disappointing... this could just be my point of view. Another negative is the price, yes clothing these days id extremely expensive, but this id expenesive in comparison to other brands. The clothing can also be a little uncomfortable, which is rather annoying, and somewhat upsetting, especially after paying such prices for the items. If the items were cheaper i could understand the sometimes poor quality, but it isn't always worth the money, these negatives of course, could just be defects on my items or just aren't comfortable in a way that suits me, but i expect consistency in quality when paying high prices. I was shopping once in a place called Llantrisant in Wales and i was looking for clothes for summer, the Burton range was fantastic for summer items yet there was little variation, i believe that if there was more variation, then Burton would be appealing to a much wider market, and would give a better buying experience to customers.
The clothing i have seen and had in the wide range of clothing that Burton offers has been very stylish, it is current, it is stylish and the colours are often very good. For example; i bought a pair of smart shorts and they were a nice shade of ligher, sort of sky blue. The shorts i bought were really nice shorts, i bought the wrong size when i was shopping far from home. The stitching on the products is magnificent 10 out of 10 for that side of things. The shape of the items is fantastic, it fits nicely to the body, and the summer range really is extremely thin for the hotter days, this could be seen as a negative but i believe it to be positive in association with the time of year it is for; summer. Another good thing about Burton is that alot of the individual pieces of clothing can go with a large variety of different other individual pieces, this mix-and-match style works very efficiently as it allows you to choose the pieces you like and put them together. All in all i would recommend Burton for anybody looking to make a statement, or anybody who is rich.
Burton is a store which stocks men's clothing and is known as Dorothy Perkin's other half.
Some of the clothes in Burton can be quite pricey, I recently looked at a cardigan in there which was priced at £40. But some of their more basic things, such as plain tshirts, are very cheap and tend to be on some kind of 3 for 2 offer.
I think it is also worth mentioning that when their is a sale in Burton, their clothes are amazingly cheap. I returned the week after viewing the £40 cardigan and managed to pick it up for £5 in the sale! My boyfriend was very impressed with his new £40 cardigan on his birthday. Ssssh! He never needs to know ;)
The quality of the clothes in Burton is great, I am quite skeptic about big stores as their clothes never seem to last very long, despite them making a big hole in my purse! I have never had any problems with any of the clothes that I have purchased for my boyfriend running in the wash or falling out of shape. The clothes that I brought him are quite smart and I was worried that once they had been washed they may not be so good for occasions where he needs to look smart, however, they still look as good as new despite being washed several times.
As with many stores, the sizing in Burton can be a little weird. My boyfriend is usually a medium in clothes but when I brought him a medium polo shirt I had to return it for a small. But when I brought the cardigan a medium fit perfect.
I highly recommend that you either try before you buy, or keep your receipt if you are buying a gift.
I think Burton's returns policy is you can receive a refund after 28 days if you have a receipt. As with most stores, you cannot retrn underwear. I recently had to exchange a shirt from there and this was done with no trouble and very quickly.
Burton stores are always set out very smart and it is always easy to find what you are looking for. Anything that is on offer is grouped together. For example, all of the 3 for 2 shirts will be grouped together to make this decision easier.
Even when the store has a sale on, the sale clothes will be arranged by size to save you searching around, as if in a jumble sale.
I usually shop in Derby's Burton store and find that the staff could not be more helpful if they tried. They give you a little browsing time before asking if you need any assistance and, if you say no, will not follow you around. They always have a smile for you when you get to the checkout and are lovely. Thank you :)
I love Burton and always look forward to popping in and picking up a little treat for my boyfriend. Compared to many other men's fashion stores, the clothes are very good quality for the prices that you pay. Also, I feel that, if I picked something up for my boyfriend from Topman he would be walking around and every other person that he saw would be wearing it. I don't feel as many people shop in Burton and my boyfriend doesn't see as many people wearing the same things as him.
I love Burton and could not recommend it more!!
Burton opened in 1903 by Montague Burton, located in Chesterfield. At the beginning of the Second World War, Burton decided to produce the forces uniforms, and not suits.
Burton then went back to producing tailored suits, and were even used in a James Bond film. Currently, Burton has moved into being a high street store offering a range of clothes such as t-shirts and jumpers, jeans and shorts, while still offering suits at reasonable prices.
Burton has many competitors including Top Man and River Island. I feel that Burton is on a par with River Island because Burtons clothes are a little less dressy in comparison. I have several pairs of jeans from Burton and compared to my jeans from River Island, I think they fit better and are longer lasting.
Burton's prices are very reasonable. I have a few check shirts what were around £25 and they are very good for that price. I have a black and white check shirt which was very good for £25; I expected some of the black to run into the white, but it did not. It still looks like a pretty new shirt. However, my plain black shirt did not last long until it faded.
To conclude, I think Burton is the best of the high street retailers for men. They offer a range of products at prices that are affordable and are a good quality. I would recommend the store to students especially, as they offer student discount.
We have a Burtons menswear store in my local town centre. I must admit, that I was much more inclined to shop there a few years ago for my husband when it had quite a trendy reputation. Infact the majority of my husbands clothes were purchased within this store.
However, with the ever decreasing price of clothes and high trend items in stores such as Asda and Tesco. I find I have been visiting the Burton store less and less. I did however, pop in there for a browse last week and I wasn't particularly impressed.
Whilst they did have a pretty good selection of shirts, tshirts, jeans and trousers. I thought that the designs were quite mainstream and offered nothing that caught my eye. The style of the clothes did however offer something for most ages although the majority of stock, I would say catered for the thirty something male.
I was quite pleased with the prices of the items. They had a very good offer on the jeans with two pairs for £40. The jeans were really smart and looked very expensive and very on trend. They also had a few good offers on certain items where you could buy two shirts and have the third free, which would lead to really impressive savings.
Throughout the shop, I noticed one or two assistants who I have to say seemed more intrested in preening themselves than attending the customers. Although they did seem to have a good knowledge on the stock they had in store. I didn't have to wait very long to be served at the till. The cashier was very efficient and friendly and certainly made my shopping experience more pleasant.
It has to be noted, that the Burton's in my town only has one floor. I think that this has a big effect on the layout of the stock. The rails are very closely packed in so that a larger number of clothes can be displayed. I also found that it was a little disorganised in terms of sizes and layout. I have however visited the Burton's in my local city and this is much bigger and better presented.
Although Burton's is a menswear store. They don't try and overdo the stereotypical pumping music which floods into the store making you unable to think about clothes as the music is just too overpowering. Yes Burton's plays music, but it is a much more subtle than some stores. It also offers a more balanced and mainstream style of music.
Another thing that impressed me regarding Burton's, is the amount of sizes they had on offer. They don't just offer clothing for skinny boys they also offer sizes for the larger man. This makes the store seem more approachable and less intimidating.
All in all, I was pleased with the clothes and prices that were on offer in Burton's. But if i'm honest I just don't think it offers anything that eyecatching. I find George @ Asda much more trendy and accomodating to my husbands style. Also the prices in Burton's are reasonable but again when compared to George it is alot more expensive. I don't buy all my husbands clothes from Asda, but I feel when compared to Burton's Asda is a lot more trendy and reasonably priced.
I should finally mention that Burton's also offer a great selection of accesories. There are ties, belts, socks and shoes. There are also a good supply of trendy caps and winter hats. I loved the sunglasses that were on display at a really reasonable price. They offered great style for a great price. The shoes were really trendy, they not only had shoes which were smart for when you are suited and booted but they also had a fabulous selection of flip flops and sandals that again were trendy.
I have to say I was far more impressed with the accesories that were on sale in Burton's than the actual clothing. I loved the smart but bang on trend selection. Also I thought that the prices were very reasonable and certainly offered great value for money.
My hubby wanted some new clothes for the summer months and wanted to buy some nice quality shirts to replace some of the old ones he has in the wardrobe and I think this time of year can be very good for searching out those bargains at very good prices and so while we were out shopping we went into Burtons as it is a nice mans clothing shop and sells lots of nice clothing for men these days, and I think the clothing has been updated to a nice variety compared to how it used to be a few years ago.
The stores can be found all over the UK and usually in the High Street or shopping centres, the stores are a good size and some have 2 floors, the layout is very good and they do not tend to place too many items on the racks as some stores do, this one is well presented in my opinion and easy to get around the shop.
They sell lots of nice shirts, T shirts, shorts, jeans, trousers, jumpers, sweatshirts, shoes and lots more and lots of accessories such as belts, gloves, socks, hats, sunglasses and a wide variety of choice and sizes which is very good as some sizes cannot be found in some other stores, especially if you are quite tall like my hubby.
My hubby bought a nice pair of shoes for only £35 which were reduced from £55 and are extremely good value and he thinks they are very comfortable too, and he also bought 2 cotton shirts for only £28 of which they were reduced also from £35 but with some items if you buy 2, the price is a little lower and so it sometimes makes sense to buy the 2 and save money, and they often have sales and reduced items for sale and they are all still extremely good value for money, and especially at the end of the seasons, they tend to have lots of items reduced and so it is a good idea to go at these times and put them away for the season for which they are designed.
My hubby always likes to wear hats, any kind for the summer, winter or any season and most designs as he has always worn them from being a young man and it is not because he is bold or anything lol, he just loves to wear hats lol, and the quality and choice of the hats in this shop are extremely good value and last a long time, even though the prices can be low, especially at sale times.
I have bought many gift tokens from this store for any occasions, especially Christmas time as sometimes it is hard to find something to the taste for a man sometimes and these stores sell a lot of more trendy clothing for the younger man than they ever used to many years ago.
I recommend this store for anyone to give it a try and see if you can bag a bargain and for the quality, I think it is an extremely good store at very good value prices.
I give it 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review.
I always shop around for my clothing and tend to not use just one chain of shops as I like to take pride in my appearance and like good quality clothing that will last and this chain of shops sell good quality clothes at good reasonable prices.
They sell nice shirts, suits and all general men's wear and accessories and a good selection of socks and shoes.
They sell clothing for big and tall sizes and as with me I am tall and the jeans they sell at this shop are a good length and very comfortable, they have improved the fashion quite a lot in the past few years as they used to sell clothing that was kind of for the older man, although I am in my mature years I still like to wear nice fashionable clothing without looking too young.
They sell jumpers and cardigans, although I have not bought any cardigans as I tend to think I look silly in them but they are coming back into fashion again but the jumpers are very stylish and in different designs which are very nice.
The prices are very good and for the quality and they are very good value for money, there is a good selection of each type of clothing on racks and the store is very well organised, they do not tend to cram everything together, there is a lot of space between racks which is good to browse around the shop.
Also available are hats and sunglasses as well as underwear and even men's jewellery.
I have had many gift vouchers for this store and at sale times the prices are very good and lots of bargains are available.
Sometimes they have offers and the last time I was in this shop they had one where any 2 shirts could be bought for £35 which was brilliant as they were normally priced at £22 each and so I made a good saving.
I recommend this store as it sells good quality clothes and it is getting so much better with the fashion and it is for the young and the older man.
I rate it 5 stars.
Burton is a chain store that sells mens clothing and accessories across the UK and I believe it is part of the Arcadia group of stores. Arcadia also own Topshop, TopMan and Dorothy Perkins, among many other brands.
Most towns have a Burton store, and it seems to be one of the very few stores that sell just Mens wear these days.
The stores tend to have all the latest fashions, and the clothes in the store are laid out in such a way that you can shop by style and not just by T-shirt or shorts etc. All the sections in store are set out so that all casual clothes are together, as are the smart clothing and everything else in between. The clothes are also set out in a way so that you can see what goes with what, great if like my boyfriend you have no idea what to wear with what.
I have bought quite a lot of clothes from Burton for my boyfriend, and I have always found the clothes to be of great quality. Never has anything fallen apart or lost color in the wash, and the materials always feel good quality. None of the items have ever felt thin or lost any stitching. The prices can seem a little high some times, but when you take into account the great quality of the clothes, the prices are actually perfectly reasonable.
The staff in Burton have always been very helpful and always help me find what I need. They have always been nice and polite, and I always feel like a valued customer in the store. The store is usually quite nice and tidy, although only one store I have been in was actually big, the rest have been quite small and dark. I have never seen clothing on the floor or on the wrong rack though.
I recommend this store for all Men to shop in, as the quality is great, there is a large choice of clothing and accessories and the staff always seem willing to help you.
I have been shopping at Burton for around 3-4 years now, and I will continue to do so.
STYLE OF CLOTHES
The clothes Burton sell are generally very fashionable. Varying form Shirts to Shoes. I've noticed that a lot of the styles, are based on older fashions, but have been adjusted and made "young". For example, not to long ago, a young male wouldn't have considered wearing a cardigan. However, Burton, along with other retailers, have produced ranges of bright coloured, buttoned, zipped, fitted cardigans, along with photos of a young modern male modelling them, and here we have a new style.
Burton have a range of different styles of clothes to suit a range of people. For example, you could buy a pair of skinny white jeans, or an ordinary pair of blue denim jeans - or even loose if you want!
Burton sell all styles of clothing really - Jumpers, Jackets, Shirt's, T-shirts, Hat's, Trousers, Jeans, Accessories etc...
A typical Burton store is divided up into sections, by type of clothing. So you would find all jeans in one area, and jumpers in another, for example. Underwear and socks tends to be near to the till, which can be a bit embarrassing if you want to buy some new briefs in privacy!
Around the store you will find mirrors, large pictures of models, and large signs guiding you around. Burton stores sometimes have a digital jukebox connected to the sound system, so customer's can request a track to be played. In summary, there is a very 'cool and relaxed' vibe in the shop.
Also I should mention the staff tend to be young, and friendly. They are often wearing Burton style clothes, and similar trendy things for the females.
I find the price of clothes in Burton to be quite competitive. For example, a typical pair of jeans would cost £20 - £35, whereas some other high street shops can charge up to £60. Similarly with T-shirts, there is quite often an offer on, such as "2 plain tees for £10".
I've started buying a lot of my Burton gear online, which is a very convenient method of buying if you know what sizes you are after. Postage is £3.95, although there are sometimes 'postage free' days, along with the continuing offer that if you spend over a certain amount of money, you qualify for free postage.
At the moment there is a 15% off for students, online and in store, which is good for the younger shoppers on a tight budget. I think there is always 10% discount for students anyway.
The layout on the Burton website is very good. With the clothing categorise on the left-hand side. I would say it's much easier to find and browse products online, than in store, but of course some things may need to be seen in the flesh.
Burton is a trendy shop, with continues to bring the latest fashion styles in. As well as the young, I believe that there are a variety of clothes on sale for the older customer, such as smart clothes (Burton do a good variety of suits), and plain jumpers, and such. To be honest a male over 70 years old could probably shop there and not look out of place!
Present in most town shopping centres, Burton are a fashionable menswear shop that generally cater for the 18-40 age range, stocking a range of fashionable jeans and shirts which are of high quality and not too cringeworthily trendy as is the case with Top Man, although Burton's tshirts do tend to consist of garments with bland, 'ironic' pictures and statements, fake-washing-machine-ravaged-look prints and the like, and are so ubiquitous amongst their demographic that you'll b e lucky not to bump into someone else wearing the same tshirt as you when you're walking out of the shop.
The jeans and shirts are of excellent quality however, and though they can sometimes be a little pricey the shop usually tends to have offers of whereby you can by 2 pairs of jeans for £30 say, which isnt bad. They also stock a good range of work shirts, suits, ties and smart trousers, and these are again of a very high quality although the prices can sometimes be quite high they are still not too over expensive generally speaking.
Burton shops are well-laid-out, and the shop-floor stock is regularly replenished, and if an item is not available in your size then the staff, who in my experience have always proved friendly, knowledgeable and efficient, will order the items in from you from their suppliers if need be. Overall Burtons is a good value store, with a decent range of fashionable, high-quality and frequently changing clothing and helpful staff, making it well worth a look.
This shop is absolutely brilliant.
As soon as you walk in you can see just how good it is. All the burtons shops I have been in are laid out very well and everything is easy to find.
All the clothes in this shop are very fashionable, whether you are looking for a formal suit, casual shirt and tie or shoes, burtons has you well catered for. The prices are also very reasonable, not as cheap as some other shops like Primark but the quality is of a much higher standard.
The staff all seem to be very friendly and helpful from what I have seen in the stores I have shopped in.
This is one of those shops that always seems to have some special offer or sale on, and if you shop online, you get even more money off. If you spend over a certain amount you get free delivery and you will get 10% off every order just for signing up for their newsletter, and the news gets better if you are a student because there is a student discount as well.
Like most shops, you can buy gift vouchers in Burtons. So if you know someone who has a birthday coming up, you can buy them a gift voucher and not worry about buying them something that they dont like or of the wrong size.
Right, given the choice between Topman, River Island and Burton, Burton is usually number three on the 'want to go in' order. I do shop there, I have bought some decent bits from Burton which have done me proud, but it just lacks something exciting about it. It is bordering at times on being as dull as Next when it comes to menswear (I find Next exceedingly bland.)
The layout of the shop is good, with all the stuff easy to find, shoes at one end, t-shirts at the other, jeans stuck somewhere in the middle. The t shirts are always a bit hit and miss, lacking many of the up to date bright colours that Topman offer and the trendier looking cuts that River Island have pulled off in the last two years.
Jeans are alright, though a lack of skinny fit jeans have displeased me, as I seem mainly to come across standard and bootleg cuts for the less discerning shopper. Other trousers are a no no, as I only wear jeans.
Shoes? Not bad actually, with a fine balance of trainers and smart/casual, I have bought a few pairs from here and been impressed. They usually have a wide range of sizes too and I like the way they are displayed with all the mirrors to make it look like they have have more...
Changing rooms need checking! I hate the mirrors in there which make me look like a gibbon from some angles, plus more room would be beneficial as I find myself struggling to find places to put down my shopping bags.
Prices are in line with all the other high street stores, no real quibbles here and the service is usually quick and helpful. I would just like to see more daring designs, more up to date styles and a move away from the safe casual man look.
I do a lot of my shopping here at Burton these days because of their range of menswear clothes plus prices. Burton only sells clothes for men but they appeal to different age groups. The suits you can find here are priced about from 75 pounds on wards to 120 pounds. This is the reason the Job Centre uses Burton to give their Job Seeker's free suits! Burton in that sense is cheap but also certainly has got some of the best quality around to.
Now just on Saturday I headed to my local store and went looking around for a new suit. There was a lot of good choices available and the suit manager was on hand to. He gave me plenty of help finding the best suit available but had a issue with some of the sizes. He got a tape measure out for me and measured my chest so he knew the exact size I was.
After that I was allowed to try on the suit at the back of the store. The mirrors in their dressing rooms are very nice to say the least about them. You can view your self from different angles so it makes your buying choice here much easier. You are allowed to reserve your items for 24 hours before they put them back out on display.
I have always had good service when coming to Burton even when returning my items back to them. There has hardly been a time where their service has been bad to me. I like shopping at their stores and always have found their service to be very classy towards their customers.
Burton menswear is one of the top brands in the UK with many stores throughout the country with many of those being found as the other half of a Dorothy Perkins store.
The cloting on offer in Burtons stores ranges from the casual everyday clothing right upto the formal suit and dress shirts and likewise goes across a variety of pricing spectrums.
The clothes themselves are normally well made with my purchases from them including jeans, t-shirts, shirts, suit, trainers, shoes and jackets and none of these products having major problems with tearing or anything for ages but I will admit that I found the t-shirts to shrink and fade in their colour pretty quickly for the price I was paying.
The items on the whole are fairly priced and the stores themselves do offer a good returns policy with the staff normally very good when processing returns.
The stores are fairly well laid out but can feel somewhat cluttered as too much is attempted to be piled in to a small space but overall this is the same in most clothing stores.
Staff in the stores are for the most part very helpful and friendly and I have never had a problem with them other than chatting whilst there is a large queue.
The store offers a credit account which the staff will push on you and this is easy to keep a track of but be careful not to put too much on it with the rates charged.
