Hello all! I have recently purchased a vintage Burberry trench second hand and I was wondering if it is real? It is a 100% wool one with the removable liner. Thanks!

I'd be inclined to say real, too. But I'm surprised by the lack of a gun patch on the right shoulder. I'm not familiar with the current design of Burberry's trench coat, but all the versions I'm familiar with have a flap on the right shoulder, to take the wear and tear of shouldering a gun or rifle. That difference could be because either it's not a genuine Burberry or because the design of the coat has changed in the last 30 years to eliminate this detail. If the latter, I would also say that the coat does not, in fact, seem terribly vintage. Which, I suppose, depends on one's definition of vintage.Real
Can't help there. As I said, I've not looked closely at a modern Burberry label. It's possible that it now reads "of London". If there is a Burberry near you, it might be worth taking a look at what's hanging on their racks.I see. Also what about the "of London" tag? I personally shopping around have not seen this on any of the other tags.
Hey. Your coat is 100% genuin. Is says Burberrys of London because it was made in USA under licence. At that time Burberrys made trench coats in England, in USA and in Spain. And not all trench coats have gun flaps. Trust me, I got 7 Burberrys trench coats and I know. By the way, no trench coat had a single piece of material in the check lining. I ll give you a couple of pictures. Best regards
