Craig shares details of a new brand of men’s clothing available at Burton Menswear, and puts together a look from the range
Recently Burton Menswear added a new collection to their range in the form of FoR. The new 60-piece collection, inspired by Scandinavian style, it’s designed and crafted by an in-house team at Arcadia. Offering a clean, tailored and minimalist aesthetic. Consisting of wardrobe staples that embrace individuality, each piece has its own style and identity, using attention to detail with branded trims and signature motifs. The result is a modern uniform with a relaxed, contemporary silhouette and fit.
The collection offers a slightly different look to the usual Burton range. It’s a little more edgy and incorporates boxy fit shirts, wide cut trousers and softer constructed blazers. There’s a casual informality to the collection. With great block colours and printed patterned pieces, there are pastels alongside bold colours. New shapes come in the form of bowling shirts, offering a more retro look, along with cropped and pleated trousers.
Denim is given a much needed revision with wider legs and tapered fits. Outerwear has a minimalist feel with clean shapes and colours, matched with drawstring trousers.
‘I wanted to create quiet pieces that speak volumes. By obsessing about the cut, the detail and the fabric the FoR collection arrives to please menswear fans of clean understated style.’ Karen Hall, Head of Design, FoR.
For this look I chose the Bellinga Chambray shirt. it’s a lightweight causal shirt with bowling neck design. In 100% Cotton it’s machine washable and is priced at £25
The trousers are the Dalton Navy Pin Stripe trousers. At £30 Easy-to-wear cropped smart trousers which are great for this season. I’ve added a trouser chain for added interest.
My shoes are the black formal shoes from Silver Street which I’ll show you more of in an upcoming post.
The new label was launched on 1st May on Burton.co.uk, ASOS.com and Zalando.co.uk and in select Burton stores. Prices are competitively placed between £10 and £60 making FoR a truly affordable design-focused must-have essential for any Spring wardrobe.
