My partner managed to find this shirt and purchased it. Do you think this is genuine? I am unsure of the label but this would be pre 2003 approximately with the blue and the name 'burberrys'? Any help is greatly appreciated

I'm no expert on Burberry but not sure about the stitching quality on the collar leaves.

Also--size "12"? Is this a men's shirt?

What’s with the apostrophe after the “S”?
No, it is a females twill /cotton. The apostrophe I wondered about also. Do you think this is not genuine. I know earlier 2000s Burberry London = 'Burberrys' with apostrophe at either end of the noun.

Who knows. My rule is that when it comes to Burberry, unless the provenance is well established, assume it’s a fake unless the evidence suggests otherwise.
In this case, it’s too suspicious.

Thank you for the input. I do not recognise the label style

I’ve never seen that particular logo but when looking at it close to, the details are clean.
I really have no idea. If it’s for your personal use I’d pass as that embroidered logo on the back is plain gaudy. If you’re looking to flip it, I’d wait for a more definitive judgement.

The jacket is reversible, so the logos are hidden on the inside if youd like, but yeah i cant find anything similar to this so im a little worried its fake, but like you said the details are super clean and nothing stands out as fake on it🤔

I didn’t say nothing stood out as fake. It looks cheap and nothing like anything I’ve ever seen from Burberry. The embroidery is clean but it’s just odd.

I call fake and I’d pass.
