Hi

Recently purchased the below polo, I believe original release was 80s/90s. I've been cross referencing the label with other vintage polos and they all say either Burberrys of london or include 'Made in England'. Just worried I've bought a dud.

Cheers sll

Setting aside the probability that it’s from the 80’s or 90’s, there are a few things that look fake to me.

The collar tag looks cheap and doesn’t look like any configuration I’ve seen.

The embroidery on the shirt is sloppy and uneven. Notice how “Burberry” is not spaced evenly within its borders as it goes from left to right.
