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!
eh clearly you haven't met enough people. Nice clothing are expensive for a reason

some times you can just tell by looking at the person wearing it.

I used to work for Burberry Asia so maybe I can answer some of your questions.

Smoke is right on everything and here is the question s/he don't know the answer:
[quote="peppy5" post_id="4003141" time="1160557761" user_id="11057"]the things i want to know are do the buttons say burberry? are there four holes in the botton and are they cross stitched?
QUOTE]

The buttons are all cross stitched

Burberry only has the "Burburry London" label. In Japan, they do have "Burberry Blue Label" but only for sale in Japan. Also, the runway collection which is the most expensive collection is called "Burberry Prorsum". If the polo shirt is made in China, it doesn't mean it is fake because Burberry has a lot of things which are made in China now and I believe it will be more and more. Also, there are some polo tees may be what we call "Asia made" which means it is designed and made at Far East rather than design in UK. It mostly appear on polo tees.

If you can buy a Burberry tee at $10 or 20, then it should be fake for sure.

I have a new Burberry Polo that I'm looking to get rid of. I bought it at Channers in London and it's 100% Authentic "made in great britain". The polo is a size large and it's light blue in color. PM me with offers.

I posted a long time ago about the sad truth that the Burberry & LV crap was coming to Canada...

All of you.... please do yourself a favour and search "Chav" on Google before becoming a fashion parody....

FYI - don't go buying fake fcuk hoodies either....

People... please... get some taste!!! :rolleyes:
There is nothing worse than following a fashion mistake from another country two years after it was all the craze!

Canada...you did it in the 80's ....please don't do it again in the new millenium!!!!!

I am honestly embarrassed for you! Please have the good sense to be embarrassed for yourselves!!!!!!!
I'm not MEAN!....I'm just careful... ;)

Also check the location of the knight... it should have proper placement. I'm not sure exactly where cuz I'm too lazy to look at mine but yea I'm sure u can find pics of it and compare urs. I have one that is made in great britain which I bought a couple years back and I have 1 that I bought recently and it's made in portugal. Bought the black 1 I had from harry rosen and the red 1 from the burberry outlet in woodbury.

If you have doubts that its fake, don't buy it, and go buy it online at a known authentic store or go to a B&M store that you know sells real.

I guess I would thrust the authencity of clothing from holt renfrew.
Still, the quality of the burberry polo, in therm of tissue and workship, seem's to be under the average of most of the polo in those price.
