Yes, Burberry changed their tags from Burberry's to Burberry sometime in the 90's.
I have heard of thrifters coming across Burberry Trench Coats......in New York...where people donate them and get new ones I guess....But until recently I thought the stories were fabrications to turn me green with envy....
That is until yesterday when I found one at my local Goodwill haunt. I didn't even yell or jump up and down in fear of having the $10.99 price tag revoked....I calmly purchased it along with a hula hoop, potato masher and an outdoor chair cushion. You know, it is like filling your basket up at the drug store to cover up "unmentionables" yeah, like that.
*Ok let's get to the downside....It kind of smells like "Off!" mosquito repellent. Let me just tell you that I have a bionic nose and can smell fingernail polish from 5 miles away....so there's that.
**Funny story....I dated this guy one summer in college. Every time we were together I would wonder aloud,..."Who is wearing Off!", "Hey why does it smell like Off?"...over and over....(slow learner here) Then I just thought dang this guy is seriously afraid of mosquitoes!! So then I'm at his house and he sprays on this cologne that smells exactly like...you guessed it Off!......There you have it....my weird nose makes cologne smell like Off! not a good smell if you ask me.
So I took it to the dry-cleaners and I had to pay $18.00 to get it cleaned. You know that I hate the dry cleaners but I didn't want to risk any "Off!" flashbacks! Oh and I didn't want to jack up my new Burberry coat by washing it myself.
