If you are here because you want to learn how to spot fake Burberry scarves, you are in the right place. This guide will show you everything about fake vs original Burberry scarves.

How to tell if a Burberry scarf is fake

You can tell if a Burberry scarf is fake by checking the wash tag. The quality of the counterfeit manufactured Burberry scarves never compares to the authentic scarves’ printings.

Time to analyze the real vs fake scarves!

1. Wash tag

1.1. Front


  • The real scarf has appropriately sized and proportioned “BURBERRY” text.
  • Typically, it bears the “Made in Scotland” label for the manufacturing country.
  • The font used for the country of manufacturing is consistent and not too thin.


  • Fake scarf displays oversized and thick “BURBERRY” text in comparison to the real one.The text for the manufacturing country is often too thin and differs from the authentic version.
  • Font weights on the fake scarf vary, with the upper side being too thin and the bottom side too thick.

1.2. Back

  • Fake: The fake Burberry scarf has thin letters, contrasting with the thicker letters on the authentic wash tag.
  • Fake: The text in the rectangle on the fake wash tag is too thick.

Important: Different releases of Burberry scarves exist.

If your scarf doesn’t have the same text lines as the authentic example above, there’s no need to worry.

Focus on the font-weight of the letters.

2. Bottom label

  • The “BURBERRY” text on the fake Burberry scarf is improperly stitched, with the letter “U” too thin and the rest of the letters too thick.
  • The “London, England” text on the fake scarf is too thin compared to the legit Burberry item.
  • The “Made in Scotland” text on the replica Burberry scarf is also notably too thin.
  • The “100% CASHMERE” text on the fake scarf is both too thin and too large compared to the authentic scarf’s text.

Let’s look at another example:

  • The letter “B” in the fake scarf’s “BURBERRY” text is improperly spaced, with too much distance between the “U.”
  • he letter “R” on the fake scarf appears crooked when compared to the letter on the authentic Burberry scarf.

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

3. Tassels

  • Authentic tassels are thicker, bulkier, and larger compared to the replica.
  • The counterfeit Burberry scarf features thinner and smaller tassels in contrast to the authentic scarf.

Here’s another authentic example for reference:

4. Packaging

Here’s what full genuine packaging should look like:

  • The image above illustrates the complete packaging of an authentic Burberry scarf.
  • Authentic Burberry scarves’ packaging typically includes a receipt, an additional Burberry brown tag, a paper with Burberry’s contact information, and the box.

It’s essential to note that while these elements are indicative, they are not foolproof indicators of authenticity.

The scarf itself carries more weight in determining authenticity.

Shortlist: Authenticate your Burberry scarf

  1. Check the wash tag: Examine both the interior and exterior sides. Fake Burberry scarves often exhibit improper font-weighting of the text.
  2. Analyze the exterior boxy tag: Evaluate the text on this tag. Counterfeit Burberry scarves typically have text that is either excessively thick or too thin, with improper letter kerning.
  3. Verify the tassels: Inspect the tassels of your Burberry scarf. Many fake Burberry scarves have tassels that appear both too thin and too short.
  4. Inspect the packaging: Examine the packaging of the Burberry scarf. Authentic packages include a receipt, a paper containing Burberry’s contact information, an extra Burberry tag, and the box.

Above are the top 4 key indicators to authenticate your Burberry scarf.
