    Default Burberry burns bags, clothes and perfume worth millions

    Burberry, the upmarket British fashion label, destroyed unsold clothes, accessories and perfume worth £28.6m last year to protect its brand.

    I thought only chavs wore Burberry now?

    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    It wasn't worth £28.6m if they couldn't sell it. They burnt it so the real value of their product wasn't discovered.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    All they've lost is the cost to produce, which if it's from Chinese sweatshop, will be peanuts.
