Amir Khan Wears Burton

Despite the devastating second successive Las Vegas defeat to American boxer Danny Garcia at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas last weekend, Amir Khan looked more than the bruised sportmans as he launched his new collection of Slim Fit suits in West One’s Shopping Centre. The British boxer Khan was knocked down three times before the fight was stopped by the referee in the 4th round but fighting was not on his mind as he promoted his range of Burton’s affordable menwears suits. Amir Khan has collaborated with Burton to become the new face of their latest autumn/winter collection. In a recent photo shoot, Khan can be seen modelling the latest range of suits and an interview in which he discussed his career and fashion tastes appears on the Burtons blog.

And although some sportsmen are not that well known for their fashion sense, Khan has been seen at London’s Fashion Week and takes a keen interest. Khan said, “Yeah, I love my fashion! I love being at London Fashion Week, and it’s good to see new brands and new styles coming through. I like dressing smartly – not many boxers like to dress up and be smart but I’m a little bit different. I always like to be well presented when I go into a press conference.” So does Khan have his own style or is he a follower of fashion? “Yeah definitely, when I go to London Fashion Week to the catwalk shows I like to see stuff that I wouldn’t normally put together – when you see how the designers put everything together, the different styles, different colours, I think wow, I didn’t know that that would go so well! It gives me a bit more knowledge about fashion, makes me understand it a bit more, how you put clothes together.”

Khan apparently wants to change the public’s image of boxers, “Yeah I like to go on the shows and dress smartly. I don’t want people to see boxers as being rough and tough. The Burton shoot has gone amazingly well and it’s great to be partnering with you guys. It’s such a great British brand and it’s good to be working with you. I like to wear British brands and labels, and I love the style that Burton brings to the table – the suits, as well as the things I can wear casually and feel comfortable in.” So why did Khan choose Burtons? “Great British Style, that’s what Burton brings to the table. Since we’ve been working together it’s been brilliant because I wear things now that maybe I might not have worn before. Now though, I wear them and I feel so comfortable in them – it’s totally changed my image.”
