Some San Diego pawn shops and consignment stores say that Burberry is even hotter right now that pre-owned Louis Vuitton handbags. But just what is the story behind Burberry?

Burberry is a British luxury fashion house, manufacturing clothing, fragrance, handbags, and fashion accessories. The company has branded stores and franchises around the world. Burberry was founded in 1856, when Thomas Burberry, a former draper’s apprentice, opened his own store in Basingstoke, Hampshire, England.

In 1911, Burberry became the outfitters for Roald Amundsen, the first man to reach the South Pole, and Ernest Shackleton, who led a 1914 expedition to cross Antarctica. A Burberry gabardine jacket was worn by George Mallory on his ill-fated attempt to scale Mount Everest in 1924.

In 1914 Burberry was commissioned by Britain’s War Office to adapt its officer’s coat to suit the conditions of contemporary warfare. This resulted in the creation of the “trench coat”. After the war, the Burberry trench coat became popular with regular folks and remains so today.

During the 1970s, the Burberry brand became popular with rebellious British youngsters and football hooligans. However, in the 1990s Burberry began rebranding itself with advertisements in top fashion magazines like GQ, Esquire, Vogue, Tatler and Harper’s Bazaar, with ads that include celebrities such as Kate Moss, George Craig, and Emma Watson.

Today, Burberry operates under 5 brands: Burberry London (the primary brand), Burberry Brit, Burberry Prorsum, Burberry Sport, and Thomas Burberry. Luxury San Diego pawn shops like San Diego Jewelry Buyers pay top dollar for pre-owned Burberry items.
