Burberry Scarves


Burberry Scarves

so I don't understand what the deal is with these Burberry scarves. So many people have them now, it's ridiculous - everywhere you look, you'll see people with them. Yesterday on the Metro there were two people standing next to each other wearing the same Burberry scarf. Then I turned around and another lady had one. Walking off the train, two people in the next car had them. What is the deal? Are they free? Are they somehow warmer than other scarves? Do they come with an iPod embedded in them or something? I don't get it. I mean, it's a scarf! It goes around your neck and is warm. Who cares what brand it is! The only thing I could care less about is what brand your socks are. If it costs more than the $3 ones they sell outside Metro stations, then it's a waste.

And looking at this site, they are all more than $150. Congratulations, you spent $150 on a scarf that everybody else has. It's not $150 warmer than my cheapy Metro vendor scarf, but hey, at least it is like a recognizable plaid pattern or something. Because I make my judgements about people based on what they wrap around their necks.

$10 says most of the ones you see on the train are "cheapo metro vendor" scarves too, emulating the $150 ones... imitation is the sincerest form of flattery? secretly they want to be you.

ps. don't eat this comment.

In Britain, this has been a problem for a while.

Also, I ate handels's comment and it was delicious.

hehe, could be sarah.

and that article interesting edmund. it seems more like it's office workers who wear them here, however. i see 5 people or so every day with one, or a knockoff. but again, who gives a shit what brand your scarf is? It's a scarf!!
