The Independent Culture
For those men who hate clothes shopping but still want to look good with as little effort as possible, Burton Menswear have come up with the perfect solution. Their newly launched catalogue makes it easy for you to shop not only from home, but also from the safety of your office, by phone or fax. Delivery is to whichever you choose. What could be easier? There's no need to set up an account; just pay by credit card. Delivery is on the next working day following your order.

The hundred-page glossy catalogue covers casual, work and leisurewear, shoes, underwear and sportswear. Included is a new range of golf clothes. An accessories section has G-Shock-style watches, and Armani-style sunglasses, baseball caps and belts. And - surely a first in clothes catalogues - there is a books and CDs section. Select two beach books for pounds 10, from a range that includes Ben Elton and John Grisham. The choice of 30 CDs offers both old and new favourites, from REM's "Automatic for the People" to The Verve's "Urban Hymns." Two CDs for pounds 22? Can't be bad.

All clothes and shoes are reasonably priced. Best buys include button- down and regular-collar cotton-mix work shirts, with long or short sleeves, at two for pounds 18, in an assortment of colours including navy and yellow. Fine cotton "peach twill" casual shirts, in fabric that feels like peach skin, cost pounds 20 each and are available, in nine colours. Twill, cord, gabardine and moleskin jeans cost from pounds 22 topounds 30, and plain front, crease- and stain- resistant work trousers, in navy or black, cost pounds 25 a pair. Canvas deck shoes are available for pounds 12 a pair, in sand and navy.
