Burberry plans to close its factory in Treorchy, Wales, with the loss of 300 jobs, and switch production to -- big surprise! -- China. A bunch of Welsh celebrities (Tom Jones, Rhys Ifans, the prince of Wales -- who's technically English, we believe, but whatevs -- and other famous people with funny Welsh names mostly unknown to Opera Chic) have joined efforts to lobby Burberry to do the right thing and keep the Welsh factory alive. Opera Chic's beloved giant teddy bear of a baritone, the awesome Bryn Terfel, has joined the cause, too.
Now, Opera Chic loves her classic trench coat, her bag, her V-neck sweater, all made by Burberry. She's also happy, strangely, that they're not made in China. As apolitical as she is, she happily joins the protest: you don't want to piss Wotan off, Burberry.
