    I've been somewhat familiar with Burberry stuffs, but not about the suit.

    I would like to know what is "Mainline Burberry"?

    As far as I know, Burberry has four lines; Prorsum (Runway), London, Brit, and Sport. This suit is the London line, which I have no clue what year or who made.

    I've read that HF used to make Burberry's suit, but not anymore. So, I want to know, judge by the label, who made this suit?

    Is it half-canvassed?

    It is practically brand new, and I got it for $170.

    It is houndstooth, so I am not sure if it is going to be hard to don or not, but the houndstooth is extremely small.

    Will it be a good buy? Is houndstooth suit considered classic?

    Here are the pictures.

    Thank you.

    That looks like a Hickey Freeman tag; likely half canvassed.

    Is this new or second hand? The Jacket looks as if it has hard a hard life.

    Quality of make apart, whether it will be good depends upon whether it fits properly. It can be made by the best tailor in the world but if it does not fit...

    Is it just me or does it appear to have a significant stain on the front?

    It's the light and angle that made the jacket appears to have stain on it.
