Textile and Industrial Heritage - Burton's No. 5

Is this an illustration of the sort of suit which included shirt and underwear and was possibly the origin of the "full monty"?

Burton's shops are still operating and are now part of the Arcadia Group. One of their factories is still in Burmantofts but serves now as a warehouse.
