Sorry didn't realise it had already happened.

Don't agree, loads of Uniqlo stuff is absolute wank, especially the tshirts.

Had to check, but I was wondering where Burberry had gone. Alas it's still there, but let's face it, surely no one buys stuff from them anymore. It's never discussed on here.

Remember them having a Prorsum resurgence in 2008 to about 2011 but not seen anything other than accessories stores since.

They've been trying really hard, outfitting Skepta, Wiley etc to get that young audience but I think they just have to face it their collections are completely unremarkable and way too expensive to just casually buy a couple pieces here and there.

Would have been way too obvious of them to sell out to the Instagram fashion of Vetements, Margiela, Raf etc although they've now done a collaboration with Gosha Rubchinskiy for SS18 which is half way there. Too late though, Gosha hype disappearing and will probably be dead by the time it drops.

Burberry like an old man desperately trying to keep up with the times but never want to take off his manky old slippers cos they are just too comfy.

They just seem to be unsure of where they want to be placed in contemporary fashion. Some of their coats/outerwear is still solid. Always a couple of tasty trench coats/shearlings but they will chase the Gucci crowd deffo to their peril I think

Which Road Man, I don't see no one rocking Burberry in South, must be a West/North thing.

Chinese just eat up all mainline high end designers.

Usually worn at christening, raves and bday parties.

P.S. A south rd man is probably wearing a puffer jacket in hot conditions, saying "mans not hot" so you never actually see the shirt.

Don't think so, they just folded. Also forgot Nort and Project Dragon though they're sort of all related to one another in different degrees.
