Blockheads Don't Wear Burberry
They've got womanly breasts under pale mauve vests
Shoes like dead pigs' noses
Cornflake packet jacket, catalogue trousers.....
But no raincoats.
Blockheads with $3,000 burning a hole in their pockets and a desire for a new coat can now blow their dough on a Minecraft-themed garment from high-end fashion brand Burberry. Famed for its signature tan check, Burberry says its Minecraft tie-up unites "two brands with shared values of exploration, creativity and self- …
The only brands on that list that I have in the house are several items from number 15 (inherited from my maternal grandmother and over 100 years old), and number 25 (the jeans fit me, don't wear out in two weeks, and are inexpensive. Same for the lined jackets.). I do not remember ever owning any of the others.
Not sure what that means in the great scheme of things. Probably nothing.
I still have a Burberry waxed olive green lightweight jacket I bought over 50 years ago. I think it was about £5? Rewaxed a few times, and a bit worn around the pockets, but still wearable. Fortunately with a detachable plain beige plush lining and no tartan at all. I bought it to keep warm and dry, presumably before they were "fashionable".
Not to contradict you, but are you sure you're not thinking of Barbour? When I think of waxed green jackets, that's the name that comes to mind. I didn't even know Burberry ever made such a thing. But then again, I'm a bit of a Dwayne Dibbley when it comes to matters fashion.
It's a perfectly normal high-quality overpriced beige coat from the front (https://us.burberry.com/monogram-motif-waterloo-trench-coat-p80647751) but with a really surprisingly ugly white creeper-face design in the small of the back.
I was thinking Burberry might be charging that much for a Burberry-check in-game skin, which would have been a bit more than averagely silly at the height of the NFT nonsense and absolutely ridiculous now.
I can't help but think this is the sort of stupidity that ruins a game. I played a lot of Minecraft in my youth. Starting at the original alpha release before there was even such a thing as mobs. The attraction of the game was just how simple it was. And I could imagine for parents it was also relatively straightforward, play once and never worry about micro-transactions, just let the little sprog play with what he has (and keep an eye on installed mods if applicable). Nowadays it seems that death-by-a-thousand-cuts is the default payment methods for all games. No up front payment but daily whinging and whining about a few euros here, a few euros there, "But Timmy gets this", "But Monica got that", etc, etc.
I still play Minecraft the way you describe, started in Alpha before mobs too. When my son was old enough (and I had enough spare parts to cobble together a second desktop) we play together. We've not seen any death-by-a-thousand-cuts in the game we play. When my daughter stops trying to steal the mice to pet them, she'll probably play too. It's a touch more expensive to buy and there is lots more to do but it's otherwise much the same game.
I was a player of Minecraft for many years, and stopped only because the launcher started insisting that I set up a Microsort account or it wouldn't let me play, not even solo. I'm getting an MS account sometime never, so that ended my Minecraft playing days.
As for fashion, fashion is for sheep. Not all fashion suits everyone, and blindly following fashion can result in you making yourself look ridiculous. Finding a style or styles that suit you is more important, if you want to feel good about how you look, and who made the items you look good in is irrelevant.
Burberry? Only thing I know about Burberry is that it was associated with chav's the few times I heard of it.
Yes, I'm out of touch with, oh, so many things that I don't give a damn about.
