If you're looking for Prorsum, forget it. They never stick any of it in. Sample sales are for Burberry London and some of the golf gear.

Also Burberry archive Prorsum for 3-4 seasons before it appears in the outlets or sample sales. I went on Friday to pick up a polo t for my gf's grandad. Was £15. Checked to see what they rrp for, £75-£80. Who the funk pays that for a burberry polo?!

edit. plus gotta lol at the militancy of the security staff… talk about trust no one. Even booted out a guy who was in there with his pug. Burberry ain't that luxurious. That said, they seem to send lots of stock out to Germany and Italy.

I'm only going on what a merchandiser told me end of last year. They seem to be doing more and more sample sales I've noticed. And they charge staff too, which is gay. £5 opening day is a joke imo.

Apparently there's some new Prorsum menswear added to the sample sale - its upstairs. Guy I work with copped a nice dark grey with white thin vertical wide set lines, small collar and concealed buttons for £40. Was impressed.
