Other Interesting Points - The Burton Company was founded by Montague Burton in Chesterfield in 1903 as The Cross-Tailoring Company. It was first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1929 by which time it had 400 stores, factories and mills. In 1934, Burton's largest factory in Leeds was visited by Princess Royal. After WW2, Montague Burton offered men the chance to buy a full suit, which included jacket, trousers, waistcoat, shirt and underwear which became known as 'The Full Monty'. In 1946 the Company acquired the Peter Robinson women's fashion chain and by 1952 the Company became the largest multiple tailor in the world, but this also coincidentally was the year that the founder Montague Burton passed away. Burton's was the official sponsor for the World Cup in 1966 and again in 2002. The Company changed its name to Arcadia Group in 1988 but still uses the Burton trade name.
