Not often do you get the chance to sit down with your favourite bloggers, exceptional journalists as well as internal Burton staff members such as Pete Cuthbertson (Senior Press Officer), who I've had the pleasure to work with over the last few months, at one dinner. Burton arranged this gathering to celebrate the launch of their Montague collection for autumn/winter 16 #MontagueBurton16, which is a premium range of clothing at an affordable price. Other menswear bloggers on this dinner was Craig from That_Dapper_Chap, Joey London, Ben from Twenty First Century Gent, Ed from Discerning Man, Darren Kennedy and myself of course.
On sitting down to this incredible dinner I sat next to the MD of Burtons Menswear, the head menswear designer and the head of digital marketing! Some incredible minds in the fashion, retail industry and it was an absolute pleasure to get the opportunity to speak to them about the collection and Burton in general. I felt totally humbled that Burton would mix a little known blogger like myself with the MD of their entire brand - I guess it shows how down to earth the brand is and also how influencers are becoming an integral part of the high-street fashion industry.
Finally the collection which is available online and in-store now. As I mentioned previously the Montague collection by Burton Menswear is their premium range, yet still very affordable. The range is also diverse and includes work wear, party wear, casual wear and formal wear...suits, shirts, tees, ties, knitwear, jackets etc are all part of the collection - so you'll find something for everyone.
The Montague collection is out now however Burton will be adding new items during the season. For example, my favourite piece (which you can just see the arm of in the photo above) - a grey herringbone classic overcoat is not available yet, although keep an eye out for it in Burton stores soon because trust me it's a great buy and a classic piece which will last season after season.
