    Im interested in a Burberry suit. The tag is listed below, anyone know of the quality and value as opposed to other brands? I have search around the forum so I know it can be a hit or miss but I can't tell where is was made. At the risk of sound like the noob I am was it made in London? If so is that good? Thank you.

    Are you wondering if that's a fake? I'm not sure, I'd need to see more pictures but something doesn't look quite right with that tag.

    I own a Burberry London suit and like it. It's half canvassed and I got it on sale. I don't know if I'd pay full price.

    It's a very slimming suit and the fabric feels good. They're made in Italy, not London. Older Burberry suits were made in the USA.

    So, I'd give it a B+ in terms of fashion suits. Hope that helps!!

    Until recently, Burberry London was made in the USA by Hickey Freeman. I'm not sure who makes them now. They were half-canvassed. I think Obama used to wear Burberrys, also made in the USA by HF. HF leased the rights to the name Burberrys and Burberry London from the British parent company but no longer does so.

    All the 'Burberry London' gear one sees here has never been anywhere near London.
