Thomas Burberry started his company in 1856, and his famous Gabardine waterproof trench coat came out in the 1800s. In 1901 the Horse Logo with the word “Prorsum”, (Forward), was designed. In the 1920s the check print lining was introduced to make the coats more fashionable. Christopher Bailey currently heads the house, and has combined the tradition of Burberry with forward looking fashion. Shop LXRandCo for the classic checked bags and other accessories.
