Can someone clear up the differences between the Burberry lines? From what I've read on the forum the Prorsum line seems to be the most sought after and the Burberry London line seems to be lower quality.

I'm confused about how to tell the Prorsum line from pre-1999 Burberry based on the label. I see a lot of low-quality Burberry jackets and suits, with a label showing the knight-jumping holding a prorsum flag. I can't imagine this is from from the top Prorsum line. Are they just old? What does the new Prorsum label look like? Are Burberry London jackets fused to hell like what I've read?

Is this Prorsum, or old? How can you tell? (I'm not interested in the jacket, just curious)

And is this the lower line?

If I knew how to put the images in the post directly, I would have, sorry.

I found this online:

There are at least two types of Burberry labels, the first one reads 'Burberrys' (First character is capital B, the rest are small and with s. The single quotes are also written) and the second one reads BURBERRY (all capital, without s). The Burberry main office in London has confirmed that they are both authentic The company changed the label from 'Burberrys' to BURBERRY 9 years ago.
