Burberry

About Burberry

In the world of traditional fashion houses, which is clearly dominated by French and Italian brands, the British Burberry is an exception. The identity of the brand is practically synonymous with the famous check pattern and stands for exceptional quality. Not surprisingly, Burberry has been purveyor to the royal court since 1955. The Queen of England is one of the brand's longstanding and loyal customers.

A young pioneer

Founded by the 21-year-old textile merchant Thomas Burberry in 1856, his boutique initially mainly offered outerwear. The businessman turned out to be an extremely inventive mind, able to translate his experience and ideas into concrete products. In 1880 he developed the gabardine fabric, which is still characteristic today. Made of cotton, this fabric shines with its robustness and breathable properties. The yarn is impregnated before weaving, which makes the fabric waterproof. Eight years later, Thomas Burberry successfully patented his invention and a period of international expansion began.

Fame and adventure

He gained greater fame and reputation with the development of a new coat, which he designed as clothing for officers on behalf of the British military administration. He used an already existing Burberry coat and added epaulets, belts and D-rings: the trench coat was born. Due to the waterproof material, this new type of coat was not only suitable for military purposes, but also for other adventures under difficult conditions. Unsurprisingly, the Antarctic expedition of 1910 also opted for the Burberry trench coat. The famous plaid pattern, unmistakable Burberry trademark, was finally introduced in the 1920s. In the 1960s, the trench coat became famous in various films by Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and Peter and thus laid the foundation for further popularity. It was during these years that the brand's prestige reached a peak.

Menopause and Comeback

That momentum was lost in the early 2000s. The product range was massively expanded and everything from bikini to household items was sold under the Burberry brand. Suddenly, the classic check pattern was the uniform of football hooligans instead of a prestigious item of clothing. At this point, Burberry had lost its identity and it was unclear what the brand actually stood for. Under the direction of Angela Ahrendts, the 30% products were initially discontinued and the brand regained its exclusivity. Together with the chief designer Christopher Bailey, the old shine could be brought back to life.

Burberry authenticity check

You can recognize an original bag from the Burberry brand by these features.

Customers often think that if a “Burberry” bag says “Burberrys” it must be a fake. This is far from it! Both spellings can clearly be an indication of the originality of a Burberry or Burberry bag. It all started in 1856 with the name of the founder and draper Thomas Burberry. A short time later, the name was changed to “Burberrys of London” - short for “Burberrys”. With the collections from 1999, only the name “Burberry” is used again.

Most of the bags from Burberry that are offered secondhand date after 1999. The entire Burberry lettering is in a very classic font and is made up of all capital letters. Each letter has certain characteristics, which are often not properly implemented in a forgery.

«B» - The lower part (belly) of the «B» is slightly larger (more bulbous) than the upper part

«U» - The left line of the «U» is slightly thicker than the right one

«R» - The end of the «R» has a slight curve upwards

«E» - The bottom line of the «E» is slightly longer than the top one

"Y" - The same applies here as for the "U" - the left part of the letter is also slightly thicker than the right.

A large number of Burberry bags are made in the classic and world-famous checked pattern, also known as "check". The color scheme and the thickness of the lines used differ depending on the collection. The classic colors, however, are beige, black and red! On original Burberry bags, the check pattern is always perfectly symmetrical. The pattern also «moves» across the pocket in one «pour». In other words, the pattern is not restarted after a seam or an attached pocket. Furthermore, the individual large stripes in the check pattern also consist of fine stripes / lines themselves. These run diagonally to the actual pattern. The fabric itself is impregnated and completely water-repellent or very resistant!

Different materials are used for the labels inside the bag. These vary depending on the bag model. The Burberry logo is also shown in the interior on these labels and can vary from rectangular to oval. This makes it difficult to use the labels as an authenticity feature.

However, certain features are essential in an original Burberry bag. Every label, whether oval or rectangular, is always attached neatly and symmetrically or straight. The labels are either finely sewn in or even glued in. There is also a patch in the interior of an original Burberry bag, which indicates the place of production. Burberry bags used to be produced exclusively in Italy. Today they are produced in a wide variety of countries around the world. Today's collections at Burberry all have a label which, in addition to the place of production, also contains an item number and material information.

Since then, the brand has radically committed itself to sustainability and is now one of the pioneers among fashion houses. For some time now, recycled materials have been used more and more. Some of these are obtained from old fishing nets, scraps of fabric and industrial plastics.

All older models were made exclusively in Italy and are marked with the "Made in Italy" logo. New models of Burberry bags are now also being manufactured in other countries around the world.
