Burberry is a British luxury fashion house, manufacturing clothing, fragrance, and fashion accessories. Its distinctive tartan pattern, a type of plaid pattern, has become one of its most widely mimicked trademarks. Burberry was founded in 1856 by 21-year-old Thomas Burberry. The black, tan, and red pattern known as haymarket check or the "Burberry classic check" was first used as a lining for the Burberry trenchcoat in 1924. It was not until 1967 that the Burberry Check, now a registered trademark, was widely used on its own for items including umbrellas, scarves, luggage, and more recently watches.
