Andy from UK has purchased this tie from Burton sometime ago when he needed one. While the tie is often covered by the jacket, Andy has always assumed the Chinese characters had something to do with tiger.
After seeing my site, he started to have doubts about his original assumption and wanted to know just exactly what Burton is putting on their products.
I personally have never seen tiger been described in such way 夫武田元春訣前; but what I can tell is four out of the seven characters are written incorrectly.
My guess is these are random characters chosen to be used as marketing tools.
