Sir Montague Burton (1885-1952), founder of the tailoring empire that bears his name, was one of several Russian Jewish immigrants who built enormously successful businesses from humble beginnings. Michael Marks, co-founder of Marks and Spencer, is another classic example; and Lionel Jacobson, founder of Jackson the Tailor, who became chairman of the Burton Company after Sir Montague's death, had similar origins.
