‘No, I’m not an extra from the cult film Quadrophenina, but it’s an easy mistake to make I know,’ – what you’ll mostly be saying when you’re suited and booted in one of the collaboration suits from high street menswear brand Burton and cult label Lambretta.
Offering three new suit styles, the partnership between these two brands aims to bring together the suave feel of Lambretta’s 1960s mod influences with Burton’s affordable suiting range.
With a slim cut and neat features, the suit jackets provide a defined silhouette in contemporary fabrics. Available in brown, navy herringbone and grey, the suits are accompanied by a range of Lambretta shirts so you can be a truly top-to-toe mod icon.
If you’re particularly eager and one of the first fifty to place your order online then you’ll get a free shirt – very generous. Unfortunately you’ll have to provide the vintage scooter yourself, and wearing the suit isn’t an excuse to start an impromptu fight with rockers. Available from Burton £179.
