Men’s wear retailer Burton has unveiled a '24 Hour Suit', claiming that new technology means it will retain its shape all day.

The suits in the range, which will be available from 19 September, are all stain-repellent, crease-resistant and shape-retaining, the UK chain said.

Jackets are fitted with mesh material in the lining of the under-arm area to help to ease movement and retain a comfortable and wearable appearance.

Suits are available in a grey Prince of Wales check, navy micro-dot and black and grey sharkskin, while cotton 24 Hour shirts come in white, pale blue, black pinstripe and purple pinstripe – the last two with contrast collars.
