Burberry eye wear is another line of products from a company that was founded way back in 1856 by 21 year old Thomas Burberry when he opened an outfitters store in Hampshire, England. In 1880, Thomas Burberry invented a breathable fabric called Gabardine, which was also water-resistant and durable. A few years later, Burberry was selected to design new designs for the British War office. When the check prints of Burberry were registered as a trademark, they were first used as trench coat lining. Later on, this check design began to symbolize Burberry everywhere.
Burberry is synonymous with quality, innovation and style. All collections are naturally influenced by over 153 years of providing practical and modern all weather garments. Burberry signature icons, including trench coat inspired D-rings, trademark check, quilting and the Prorsum equestrian knight logo, are seasonally evolved and re-interpreted always with a relaxed and distinctly British attitude.
