So here's another authenticity question.
I picked up a classic durham on ebay today, and thought I had done my due diligence confirming it's authenticity. Now, I'm kind of concerned.
I've attached some photos, and was hoping someone to could help whose more familiar with these jackets.
My concern is that the white tag that denotes the type of jacket, "classic durham" and size "42/107, is in a different place than other jackets I had come across. The font appears to be slightly different too.
Also the photo of the hook to hang the coat up shows that hook is a solid black, rather than the tartan colour. Although, I've seen the black hook on other models.
I had look at this sellers feedback and all of the barbour jackets he sold received positive feedback, and there were a few. I already emailed the seller who assured me that he purchased it from the Barbour factory in South Shields for himself, he's in the UK, but never got to wearing it. He claims it's a definitely authentic, and it had initially seemed that way.
Anyways, any insight would be appreciated. Could it be a sample or something along those lines, given it looks pretty authentic aside from what I've mentioned about the white size tag.
