    Hi, bought this Burberry coat in a thrift store and it feels like very high quality if it would be a fake, however I'm a little concerned that the zipper is not from Burberry but that could just be a replacement. It seems like a very weird coat to fake since it isn't one of the more famous once. It has an extra lining that can be removed with buttons and a hood. Thanks :) IMG_0985.jpg IMG_0987.jpg IMG_0988.jpg IMG_0990.jpg IMG_0991.jpg

    I'm sure it is real but it's not worth very much money at all so authentication isn't really necessary.

    Everything looks good to me exept of the material tag, is it ok that it does not look very clear?
    I know it's not very expensive, but still don't want to buy a fake.

    Lots of legit Canali ties have Canali embroidered on the backside of the tie in this manner. So I wouldn't use that as sole reason.

    Those pictures are terrible so it's hard to examine tie. Seems like it's just really old tie. Ugly too, in my own opinion. I would find another.

    It's real, but also real old.

    Thanks. I decided to leave it and give it a miss. Picked up a lovely Pal Zileri tie BNWT for only $20 instead!
