    The PurseForum requests that only members with an extensive knowledge of the brand and authenticating who have over 500 posts participate as authenticators in this AT thread. The moderators reserve the right to remove authentications that do not meet these requirements.


    This is a free service. Our authenticators are volunteers providing their opinions, and who desire to keep counterfeiters and dishonest sellers from profiting from their trade, and to help buyers find authentic items. Authenticators are not required to answer all posts and, for various reasons, some may not be answered.

    It is the preference of the authenticators on this thread not to give authentication to members who buy and resell bags. It is also the preference of the authenticators to give authentication to members who post in a range of threads, not just requesting free authentication for designer items. If your request is not answered here, for whatever reasons, professional authentication services are available outside of PF.

    1. Do a SEARCH and check if the item has been reviewed by one of the authenticators before posting a request. Searches can be done via the seller name or by auction/listing number - add * to the beginning and end of the number (eg. *12345678*).

    2. You MUST use the format below when requesting for authentication for auctions or non-auctions:

    Format to use for an auction item:

    Item Name:
    Item Number:
    Seller ID:
    Link: (please make sure link works after you post)

    Format to use for non-auction item:

    Item Name (if you know it):
    Link (if available):sad:please make sure link works after you post)
    Photos: (attach using the paperclip at the top of the message box or upload to and post the links)

    3. All requests must have clear photos (either in listing and/or provided by member requesting the authentication). This will help expedite authentications. Please ask the seller/use the macro setting on your digi (little flower). If you cannot see the details yourself, neither can we.

    At minimum, pics MUST include:
    - all exterior
    - interior
    - interior Burberry, made in, and serial stamps/tags
    - engraving on hardware

    If the listing or your request does not have the required pics, it will NOT be reviewed. That means if you have not received a response, please check your original posting to ensure all information and pics are present.

    Authenticators are not required to answer every request, and it is their right to ignore a request that is not in the proper format.

    4. Do NOT make more than 3 requests per post.

    5. Please wait at least 24 hours before bumping your request. Search by seller or item # to ensure that it has not been reviewed (see rule 1). If the auction is ending soon, you may say so in your comments. Remember, we are just like you, and get on tPF when we have time so please be patient.

    6. To ensure that additional pics requested are seen by the authenticators, quote or provide a link to your original request and response. Use the quote feature or copy and paste the url. Failure to do do may result in your query not being answered. Please utilize the quote feature when responding directly to another post.

    7. Comments on price and/or condition are NOT permitted.

    8. Do NOT PM an authenticator or moderator to request authentication. Any and all such requests must be posted in this thread.

    9. Should one of your items be questioned in this thread, you are welcome to provide additional pictures or materials supporting its authenticity.

    10. Do NOT handle your disputes with other members in this thread. Take your differences to Private Message or just use the REPORT function to alert the mods, and let them handle it from there. In the meantime, just ignore the poster until a Mod can intervene. Failure to do so can result in banning. Always be respectful when you post and treat others as you expect to be treated. This is an open thread and everyone is welcome to participate.


    All Authenticate This threads on tPF are meant to provide assistance to shoppers who are uncertain about the legitimacy and authenticity of designer goods. The evaluations posted by tPF's members are only opinions that stem from personal experiences as shoppers and collectors. They are not legally binding or professional authentications and are not to be treated as such.

    Hi Addy,

    Please help me verify the quilted jacket below. It seems it's redundant the line to sew care tag and material tag to side, please see the last photo. For me, it should have matched to the side line.

    Thanks in advance for your help.


  8. Hello, I am not sure if this is authentic and I was looking for help deciding. Thank you

  9. Hi, I purchased this item at a second-hand store. The only identifier I have is a tag, reads 100% silk. I haven't seen one just like it and it is not marked burberry, but I'm wondering if you might be able to authenticate by looking at the design of the check.
