The first store was opened in Basingstoke, Hampshire, England. By the year 1870, the company was already focusing on the development of various types of outdoor attire. In the year 1879, the company had introduced its other sub-brand, which was known as Gabardine - a fabric that was water-resistant yet breathable as always. The name of the company was first changed from 'Burberry' to 'Burberrys of London'. And then in the year 1999, the name was reverted to the original Burberry.
