Spring Summer 2017 with Burton Menswear

Craig of That Dapper Chap shares his top 5 looks for SS17 from Burton Menswear

Okay, I get it! You’re freezing cold,wearing a bobble hat and woolly socks indoors and you’re surrounded by twinkling lights and listening to Cliff Richards Mistletoe and Wine on the radio while you wrap up your Mothers chocolates. Spring seems a long way off right? Take heart, it’s just around the corner, and you’ll soon be booking that trip to the land of sun, Sangria and sun loungers in no time. 

To help with those winter blues I’ve picks out five of my top looks from Burton Menswear for Spring Summer 2017. I’m loving the white suit, what’s your favourite?

My Top Five Looks

A white suit I hear you gasp! Yeah why not comes my reply. Think summer wedding, think beach party on the Italian Riviera. White will be big for 2017, so get some in your collection.

Staying with the white theme we have some skinny white jeans teamed with a classic grey T Shirt and light grey blazer. A great look for date night, drinks after work or that evening meal while holidaying in the south of France.

Keep it dapper with this blue checked suit and grey waistcoat. The contrast of the two colours works very well so don’t be afraid to switch things up a bit.

More of a weekend or ‘pub with the lads’ look, I love the printed shirt. Teamed with rolled up jeans or chinos and a casual shoe it’s a cool, relaxed summer look.

Last up we have another more casual look. Again we have navy chinos, showing that they’ll still be strong next season. Worn with a simple white T shirt the grey jacket elevates the look to something a tad smarter.

You're Invited To The Party

Craig of That Dapper Chap shares a sneak peek of the latest campaign video from Burton Menswear in which he appears with stars of TV, sport and stage

Well know for it’s suiting, Burton Menswear are going all out this party season with a range of good looking suits to take you from office to party.

To show off their range they’ve created an incredible digital social campaign which includes a video created by the talented Steve Neaves who’s work includes pieces with Robert De Nero, Eddie Redmayne, Nicole Scherzinger and Nick Jonas to name just a few.

Myself, rugby star Tim Visser and fellow online influencer Carl Thompson

For the Burton #YoureInvitedToTheParty campaign they wanted a variety of guys of various ages and sizes to showcase their suiting range. So with Calum Best as the face of the brand, Scottish rugby player Tim Visser representing ‘big and tall’, Magician Tom London, blogger Carl Thompson and myself they set about putting together a really exciting visual display.


The location of the shoot was Scotch of St James, a very retro cool bar and event space in the heart of the city. With the green room in the Cavendish Hotel just around the corner, it was time to hear the plans for the day before hair and make-up. Then it was down to business with each of us being filmed in our new suits.

I have no idea what I’m pointing at!

Heading to the location in my blue Burton three piece suit, I didn’t feel as nervous as you might think and I did my piece with little direction. Fingers crossed it looked okay! But none of us will know just how well we did until the campaign is launched this Thursday (10th November)

A behind the scenes shot from the Burton party wear campaign

The final scene involved all five of us, with Tom doing some amazing magic which needs to be seen to be believed, and still has me asking “how” even now.

So, look out for the video very soon. I’ll of course share it on my own social media channels and here on the blog but with it being shown on video screens in store and blasted across Burton’s own channels it’s going to be hard to miss!
