Ah, the Scottish, what will they think of next? According to the Guardian, Burberry plaid, all the rage now, is considered the design of thugs by Scottish bar owners and bouncers, so much so that they will refuse to let anyone in wearing the plaid. One owner tells the Guardian, "I believe I speak for at least 90% of pub owners in Dundee. Burberry has become the badge of thuggery." While it's unclear what the Burberry menace have been doing, Burberry's respnse: "We need to keep this in perspective. The UK is only 15% of Burberry's worldwide sales." Man, if bouncers banned anyone wearing Burberry plaid in Manhattan, the bars on the Upper East Side and Murray Hill would have no business.
