Is this Burberry London suit a fake?

    Hi all,

    I'm looking to buy a suit and considering buying a 2nd hand one off Ebay. I stumbled across this Burberry London suit - the measurements are mine exactly and it looks like it will fit my purposes. Looking good in the banking world (I am not one, but will work around them.)

    However, I don't want to fall into the trap of buying a fake. There are lots of photos and my guess is that it would be real but I'm not exactly knowledgeable on such things.

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/262339975...I262339975518.N101.S2.R1.TR4&autorefresh=true

    Would be nice to know a few views.

    And maybe another recommendation - I have 200-300 to spend. Where is the best place to spend my money?

    Any comments welcome.

    Cheers,

    D

    It looks legit to me. Tags, that little chain hanger at the neck, lining with their logo... I had two of their suits few years ago and and this looks OK.

    Two wornings. This isn't banking conservative suit, given the slim peack lapels. Their suits run small and tight. Check dimensions.

    Now that I look at it, I am not sure. One button closure and three sleeve buttons... Hmmm.

    Thanks for the comments. What is significant about the three buttons on the sleeve?

    I am not an expert on Burberry suits, but four buttons is more usual.
