check on their official site, but as far as i remember, it should be 3 stripes horizontally, and 3 stripes diagonally, but someone can correct me on that

the things i want to know are do the buttons say burberry? are there four holes in the botton and are they cross stitched?

what do the tag on the back of the neck look like? the one i found has burberry london on it.

where are they made? some in England and others in China?

is there a replacement button on the bottom right inside of the shirt?

I see so many chinese poeple (even kids) with burberry jackets :lol: (or LV purses)

especially old chinese women on the subway to chinatown... funny thing is, everything else they wear is pure garbage.

maybe they saved money from buying garbage to buy the real thing, but they might as well improve overall image than just have 1 authentic item... cuz they raise some eyebrows whether they're fake or not (most likely fake).

Anyone who has bought one authentic thing probably can't afford to buy anything else! Nice clothes are expensive!

The other day my friend mentioned that going out and buying a complete Chanel outfit would ruin someone's life!

I was tempted to buy some in China.

Since I couldn't tell in Shanghai, I was pretty sure the ones they were selling were fake. If they had all the colours and every size, it wouldn't seem like over production run off. I thought inside where the neck buttons would be the burberry pattern but that could be just one style. In either case, $7 cdn each is hard to ignore even as regular polos. Tourist price was like $15-$25 depending on bargaining.

The key is to know where to shop.

Outlet centers are great.
