 … Condition

Good Vintage Condition, flaws to note - A couple of small marks to the buttons and a little underarm staining which is minor. The inside lining needs a slight repair to the waist although huts doesn’t effect the outside. These flaws do not detract from the wearability of the garment. Freshly laundered and ready to wear.
