Man of Steel hits cinemas this weekend and we at Burton are ‘super’ excited to check out this flick! Directed by Zack Snyder (who also directed 300!), Man of Steel features Superman in another attempt to save the world, battling against General Zod, the rogue leader from the planet of Krypton whilst struggling to come to terms with his special gifts.
The film has received some pretty strong reviews from some of our trusted sources (Total Film, Empire, Rotten Tomatoes), so on Friday night, instead of hitting the pub for a post work pint, we’re going to hot foot it to the movies and check out Man of Steel. And once we get home? We’ll we’re putting on our Superman onesie of course and re-enacting the whole film all over again!
Check out more superhero themed onesies, and let us know what you make of the film if you go this weekend!
The coming weekend is a busy one for the festival calendar. You’ve got a few options to choose from… Are you going to rock out at Download? Ferry over to the Isle of Wight festival? Or dance around Haggerston park at Found?
We’ve styled this look which is pretty perfect for hitting a festival in this weekend.
Acid wash super skinny denim will give your look that festival style edge, and teaming them with a cool roll sleeved tee and laid back hoodie will make sure you’re comfy all day whilst still looking effortlessly stylish. You don’t want to look like you’ve tried too darn hard with these things, let’s just keep it simple lads and focus on having a great time instead of out-weird-ing everyone else in the style stakes!
If you want a little more festival inspiration then head here to check out some more men’s festival fashion.

Unfortunately first impressions do actually count so that’s why you need to be looking your best when it comes to interviews and give you the edge over the other interviewees – the key is to be memorable but appropriate!
It may be that the straight up suit look is not also the best choice – looking overdone can do just as much damage as looking under-dressed. Brain fried already? Don’t worry we’re here to help!
The Smart Casual Interview Outfit
Ok so you’re off for an interview in a clothes shop or at a bar say. You need to look smart enough to bag the job but cool enough to make them want you – tricky?! There is only one thing for it in this situation and that is a blazer and chino look. Stick to chinos in classic neutral colours such as grey, mustard or navy though – save the brighter chinos for your first day! Team those bad boys with a printed short sleeve shirt, a blazer and some suede desert shoes and you’re laughing.
The Suited and Booted Interview
You’re rolling with the big dogs and fancy bagging yourself an office job so dress to impress at the interview and go for a suit. Play it safe with a navy suit – black sometimes gives off a funeral directors vibe and you don’t want that. There’s only one cut to be wearing this season and that’s the slim fit suit. Make sure your suit fits around the shoulders – this is usually where most men go wrong. The shoulder pads should sit at the end of your shoulders, not before or after. Don’t forget to get your trouser length right – hopefully you’ve mastered the art of this by now and if not you need to go and sit on the naughty step. Top off with a crisp white smart shirt, a skinny tie, some smart brogues and you’ll get that second interview no problem.
Make sure that your hair is freshly cut and clean. Style it subtly, don’t go crazy on the gel. Your mitts also need to be clean and try refrain from biting those nails for at least a week or two before the big day.
Our final tip to land that dream job is to try and ensure that you reach your interview with plenty of time to check yourself out in the bathroom – many a man has fallen down due to a sweaty bus, you wouldn’t be the first and you certainly wouldn’t be the last!
Right lads, so we hear apparently ‘it’s all about the shoes’ well, right now at Burton we have a great range of cool casuals perfect to see you through the summer whatever your look or occasion.
We’re loving a good ol’ trusty plimsoll right now. Available in a range of colours & styles they’re lightweight so mega comfy and really easy to throw on with a variety of different looks.
Another huge trend for SS13 is the boat shoe, worn with chinos and a shirt for easy smart / cas style they’re perfect for that Friday ‘dress down’ office look. Alternatively, pair with some tailored shorts and a smart tee for laid back weekend style great for an afternoon down the pub or BBQ round your mates. Style rule, no socks!
Ok lads, it’s date night and you’re taking that special lady out on the town – but what the hell are you going to wear? Don’t stress, we’re going to help you out on this one. Impress her with a printed short sleeve shirt, some skinny mustard chinos and then this season it’s all about the suede loafers.
