Westfield London, first floor, unit 2
Burton’s tailoring offer stands out this season, with a pleasing variety of colours. A well-made entry-level suit is a decent £99. Like at Topman, I spot several eye-catching signs and labels. Low prices are signposted with oversized tags or key trend items, such as ‘the Oxford shirt’, ‘the roll-sleeve T-shirt’ or ‘the Harrington’. Denim includes straight, tapered, slim and super-skinny – a decent spread compared with most rivals – and two pairs for £45 offers good value.
Generally the store is clean and tidy but some things let it down, such as rips in curtains, marks on cubicle walls and fit labels in the denim section, which are messily stuck on with Blu-Tack – a shame considering how sleek other denim areas are.Some rails are too full, with deep forward-facing rails packed with four different types of shirt, meaning the product further back gets lost. While the suiting area is strong, a suit doesn’t properly fit one of the mannequins.
