Born in the 1800’s in Basingstoke, Hampshire by Thomas Burberry the brand had created a niche in the field of outdoor attire and had been a prerequisite for adventure sports in early days. Today Burberry is a world renowned brand and like many other popular brands is troubled by knock-offs. Here are certain Burberry credentials that will help you ward off imitations and outsmart some of your big mouth colleagues at work.
The famous Burberry checks are basically not checks but are referred to as tartans. The tartan is comprised of tan, white, black and red lining. The linings should appear crisscrossed because of its weave which is known as the Twill weave similar to those seen in denims. In this weave the yarns flow in slanted channels which occur due to a pattern formed by repetition of two wefts (vertically tied yarn on a loom) over a warp (horizontally tied yarn) and one under it. Some of the other brands under Burberry like London also have these tartans in black and white. The visible pattern is very unique and patented by Burberry.
Other specifications are in a Burberry twill tailored trouser you will find a Ribbon embroidered with the Burberry Prorsum inscription inside the waistband, Rubberized Burberry Sport logo at hemline in sportswear and Metallic buttons engraved with the Burberry logo. The Burberry logo is in itself a clean demarcation of the authenticity of the brand.
The famous logo is a knight with an armor (a B inscribed on it) with a Prorsum flag .Burberry operates under five names including BURBERRY LONDON (which is also sometimes mentioned as Burberrys of London), PRORSUM, BRIT, SPORTS and THOMAS BURBERRY.
