1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    MINT CONDITION BURBERRYs BLAZER 38R
    Absolutely Gorgeous; FULL CANVAS
    Dark navy with pin stripe
    Side vents
    Awesome blue lining

    The blazer is labeled "PRORSUM" but on the basis of a comment below it seems all of Burberry was labeled thus until about nine years ago. I defer since I know much less about clothing generally, and Burberry in particular, than the majority in this forum. (Thanks for the correction.)

    $125.00> $115.00$105
    $10 US SHIPPING; OVERSEAS BUYERS PAY ACTUAL PRICE

    Bought this as NWOT. Have not worn it. Cannot find a fault. There's no evident wear. But I prefer to call it MINT since I'm the second owner and don't know for sure it's not been worn.

    Classic 2 button; lower/ modern stance. Fairly tailored cut.

    Measurements:

    Shoulders, straight across: 18''
    chest, flat at widest point: 21.5''
    sleeves from shoulder seam: 24'' (~1.5'' to let down)
    waist at narrowest point: 19.5''
    length from bottom of collar: 29.75''

    Please ask any questions before purchase.
    Sales are final unless I've accidentally misrepresented something.

    Thanks for looking.

    Great board, btw. Thank you to the owners!

    Neat blazer, but I believe that is a vintage 'Burberrys' model (before it split into London, Brit, Prorsum, Sport 9 years ago and dropped the 's' from Burberry) rather than a Burberry prorsum model based on the label.

    As far as I know, prorsum labels are solid black. High quality item but not sure that is prorsum. Thanks.

    Thank you.
    I appreciate the correction. It sounds like you know much more about this than I do.
    It does say "prorsum" on the label (in the cape). It sounds from your suggestion that all of Burberry is labeled "prorsum" before the split you mentioned?
    Thanks again for adding information.
    It is still a MINT, full canvas blazer, outstanding fabric. Glad to answer any questions.

    Yes, all the older models had a single Burberry's tag that says prorsum in the flag. For the more recent models, the London tag also says prorsum on the tag. Slightly confusing. The actual prorsum tag is black. I could be wrong, but the tags I've seen are all variations of this:
