Probably not enough money to be made from just raincoats any more.
BTW we love Burberry here.
My problem is not with China, I would like a chinese brand to make its products in China, and a british brand to make its products in UK and so on. :D
A Burberry tshirt costs 4pounds to make, but sells for 150 pounds. I can not unterstand how this is a problem for them to keep their british workers and sell for 155pounds as for the example.
My thinking is not only about Burberry.
As for Burberry my biggest let down was when they decided to leave their conservative nature and started being the fashion brand they are today. I just miss their old style.
