Is Aquascutum positioning itself to become the next Burberry? The 157-year-old British company, which has dressed everyone from soldiers in the Crimean War to King Edward VII to Sophia Loren, comes to Saks, Bergdorf, and Bloomingdale's this fall. They're also planning to open a flagship store in Manhattan next year. We kind of hope they become huge, if only because "Aquascutum" is extremely fun to say. [The Glam Guide via WWD]
