The Thomas Burberry Monogram
An Ode to Our Founder
Based on our founder’s initials, the TB Monogram symbolises our continued connection to Thomas Burberry. Born in 1835, Thomas founded Burberry at just 21 years old. Regarded as a visionary, he created gabardine – the iconic fabric of our Heritage Trench Coats.
An elegant set of interlocked TB initials signify our storied past as well as our contemporary future.

The Making of the Monogram
On his appointment at Burberry, Riccardo Tisci discovered a selection of 20th century TB logo motifs in the Burberry archive. Evoking the spirit of our founder, they were the inspiration for our new Monogram.
Tisci collaborated with iconic British graphic designer Peter Saville to create the Monogram. It appears throughout Riccardo Tisci’s collections for Burberry, seamlessly celebrating our heritage through a distinctly modern lens and establishing a new house code that will endure.
