Meet Peter Quill

Meet Peter Quill, an American pilot who in the far reaches of space finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan.

Guardians of the Galaxy is a tongue in cheek and playful, reminiscent of 80s kitch sci-fi. In typical Marvel style the storyline is gripping, the wit is flowing and the graphics are superb.

We might have found our new favourite superhero! Quill is more about function than form and it shows in his wardrobe. ONE look for the entire film? Get the Peter Quill look by teaming a brown jacket over a plain grey tee and then add some heavyweight denim like this coated, dirty tint pair of jeans which have a worn in look.


Catch Chris Pratt as Peter Quill in Guardians Of The Galaxy from the 31st July!

Top 5 Summer Movies We’re Looking Forward To

This summer will be full of tonnes of action packed movies hitting the cinemas over the next few months. We’ve picked out a few that we really can’t wait to watch. Get the popcorn ready!

Dawn of The Planet Apes

Planet of the Apes is definitely one of those rare classic movies that just stuck around and you won’t get bored of. You know this Sci-fi/Drama movie is just going to be packed with some epic action packed scenes.

Already out!



What can we say about this one? If there’s anyone who can play Hercules well it’s  Dwayne Johnson! This movie has had some top ratings and we think it will definitely live up to the hype!

Out 25th July.


Guardian of the Galaxy

If you’re a Marvel fan you’ll want to head over to the cinema for this one! We’ve been told it’s full of some weirdly cool characters and you’ll have a few laughs, so why not?

Out 31st July.


The Expendables 3

We’ve seen Expendables 1 and 2, which lets face it were pretty good! So we guess it would be a little rude not to watch the 3rd. Plus with Sylvester Stallone it’s always going to be worth the watch.

Out 14th August.


The November Man

All we needed to know was that it has Pierce Brosnan and it’s a thriller full of action. Oh and that we can expect to see a few hot characters. What more could you need?

Trending This Week: Collar Detail

We all love a polo shirt! Looks great, comfortable and easy to pair with some chinos or jeans. The best part about a polo shirt has to be how they can easily be pulled of  on  a smart or casual day.




Polo shirts have been around for quite a while and will remain an essential for years to come. They come in bold colours, plain colours and prints now, which is great. The new polo craze has to be the collar detail, many come in different colours to the shirt which looks cool and can easily be pulled off. If you’re a little more daring go for collar with a print or a really bold colour. Get yourself a polo shirt with some collar detail now and up your cool factor!

Trending This Week: Shorts

The heat wave is here and it’s officially shorts weather! The great thing about shorts is they come in so many styles such as chino shorts, denim shorts and smart, so there’s always going to be a pair that suits your style perfectly!


One of our favourite pairs at Burton has to be these smart oxford shorts. They look very stylish and have a great fit. Perfect for hot days when you just need to look a little bit smarter, they go great with a print shirt and some boat shoes. But that’s not all, the great thing about these shorts is that you can easily be pulled off on casual days too. Throw on a printed tee, some cool sunglasses, plimsolls and you’re good to go!
