The company focused mainly on outerwear, with Thomas Burberry inventing Gabardine, a breathable yet weatherproofed material used to make raincoats. Burberry remained on this innovative path and has been granted royal warrants three times, once by HRH Queen Elizabeth II, once by HRH Prince Charles, and once By HRM King George for its role in outfitting some of the most daring explorers in history including bringing the world “the Trench Coat” which was first worn by British forces during World War II.

The company still manufactures its signature “Trench Coats” with the famous Burberry check inner lining cause hey! If it hasn’t been broken in 161 years, why fix it?
