Doesn’t everyone wear Burberry when they rob a bank?
If you’re Cornell Neilly of New York, then yes, you do. This man has been on a bank robbing spree, hitting up 14 different spots and grabbing more than $8,500.
When the Burberry Bandit went to the first bank, he was casually dressed, wearing a blue Rangers hat and a leather jacket. However, towards the end of the robberies, cameras snapped him wearing Burberry’s signature print shirt and a simple black hat.
Because of his plaid-tastic outfit, experts, like Paper Magazine’s Mickey Boardman are saying, “It looks like a fashion story Burberry dreamed up to go viral.”
This is Neilly’s second time in jail, the first two were for slangin’ drugs.
We know what it’s like to need new designer duds, but this is not the best way to go about getting them!
