Hi,
I am looking at this pre-owned Sport Coat off eBay. It's a traditional navy blue sports coat that I need at seldom for some dinners/receptions, etc.

Can anyone with expertise tell me if they believe it's authentic.

Also, I wear 38 or 38S blazers, suits, and coats. Is there something irregular about Burberry sizing (i.e) too big.

Thanks!

I'm no expert, but I don't see a good reason to doubt it's authenticity. The seller has 99.8% Positive rating with over 11,000 transactions, which is good.

The name changed from Burberrys' to Burberry 9 years ago, so is most likely an older jacket.

Yes, authentic, but older jacket.. beware of the padded shoulders too.

I do not have very broad shoulders. Anything in particular I should be aware of with the padded shoulders?

Thanks for all the help.
