1999 was the last year for Burberrys
2000 became Burberry
I would guess your blazer to be 1999 just before the change because of the font style on the label.
I love the Prosum buttons too. Nice touch.
Thats odd as the only Richemont I know is the parent company that owns Cartier, etc. Its an LVMH company... which I don't think Burberry is a part of.
edit - NVM, that logo is for a mens clothing company, Richemont would never use a font like that
Dude, my sympathies. Moving is right up there with death on the fun list.
That blazer looks pretty sweet. Its got to be right near the label switch date, and I wouldn't doubt its authenticity because you can see some quality even in the pictures. I've never seen anything like it, nice buy.
I also saw one of those at off 5th (saks' off price discount retailer) under the burberry london line (cheaper lower end line) going for $125
Spoo - Richemont is the nicest boutique in my city. Classy men like yourself frequent it, and I pick up their leftovers haha.
The size/maker tag is ripped out. Any knowledge of who made for Burberry in the late 90s?
edit - looks to be Belvest, but confirmation would be great.
Much too big for me, so it's available for sale/trade. Double vented if it wasn't clear from the photos. Measures out to around a 43 L with S status arms...
Sleeves: 23.5 + 2

I have 2 Hermes scarves in my possession.
Has anyone heard of the brand Eckerle from Germany? I couldn't leave this thing at the GW yesterday, especially since it was one of the yellow tagged half off specials. It's double vented, super 120s (E Thomas) and pretty badass imo. It's measures out to about a 40R...I will literally send this to someone for the cost of shipping. Somebody should be rocking this.
Paging Grendel....... He will rock the SHIT out of that.
in other news .. i had my first experience at a tailor yesterday. Getting my Hugo Boss (Made In Germany) Shawl Collar tuxedo fitted. Pics inbound shortly once all the work is done :)
