My only concern would be the sloppy manner with which the labels are sewn in. Off centered and as though they had been reapplied in haste.

If it’s authentic, I believe it’s probably an older item.

I think it’s real because of the “tailored for” tag and the fact that it’s a DB jacket, something that I think is not a likely item to be counterfeited.

The label is certainly real however it has been cut and stitched quite sloppily.

Is that a sign that the jacket itself is not authentic? Or just did a sloppy job in production?
Burberry is not known for sloppy production.
As said above DB isn't likely to be counterfeit, nor is the "Tailored for Barths" tag.
I know a decent amount about spotting fake Burberry trenches but am not familiar with other items. The tag itself is fine. I suspect it was either hastily put on, perhaps cost cutting, or moved/ sewn in a more visible location at the retailer's request.
With everything else shown above, the lining, sewing, buttons etc. it looks real enough. Hard to say withough seeing in person.

Looks real with a sloppy label application.
