Very true I think.
Burberry had a serious public image and perception problem with being associated with chav culture. So they went designer and thus expensive. And raincoats alone wasn't enough to keep them going. They now do very well with the brand whoring new money in SE Asia, thank you very much.
There's another recent thread "Is a Burberry coat worth $2000"? Think the answer was a resounding NO!Edited by MikeDT - 9/20/13 at 6:23pm
