- Where are Burberry coats made?
Where Burberry coats are made will depend on the individual styles. Burberry has factories around the world, but has made a commitment to protecting British manufacturing by ensuring Burberry trench coats are made in England. Before leaving the label’s English factory, every one of Burberry’s trench coats has 127 meticulous steps to complete. This includes 180 hand-placed stitches at the collar to create the fluid curve, and an innovative weaving process to make the soft cotton-gabardine fabric weatherproof.
- Are Burberry coats waterproof?
Some Burberry coats are waterproof, others are only designed to protect the wearer against rain and made from water-repellent cotton gabardine such as many of the label’s trench coats. Invented by Thomas Burberry in 1879, this fabric is woven from fine, compacted cotton that prevents water from permeating the fabric.
- How do I spot a fake Burberry coat?
All authentic Burberry coats will come with a designer hang tag attached by a string and all branding will also be correctly spelled as ‘Burberry’.
The Burberry logo inside the coat will also feature a small left-facing symbol of a knight on a horse. The stitching on the collar will be intricate, and the iconic Burberry lining will have a signature color combination of camel, ivory, red and black. All buttons on the trench coat will have ‘Burberry’ written in the same font and in capital letters.
