    I recently purchased a Burberry trench off of ebay and I was wondering if the jacket was authentic. I paid approximately 165.00 for what I believed was a vintage burberry trench. I can't really find to much info since the jacket is one of the older styled ones. I have attached the link.

    Thank you in advance.

    I think you are probably better off having purchased a used coat than a new coat with respect to authenticity. Seems less likely that people would be trying to pass off used than new Chinese knock-offs. The price seems right in that I usually expect to pay 15% of retail for used.

    Inherited the exact same coat from my grandfather and yours certainly looks legit.

    Take a really close look at the stitching when you get it, it should be obvious its not well done.

    I came across a fake at a thrift store about 6 mos ago and it fooled me until I looked closely at it. Also, the fabric was just a bit off.
