Presents well, has been freshly laundered, as pictured there is a discolouration around waist level which would be covered if worn tucked into a garment, and one behind button placket which isn't seen when fastened. Sleeve has a more faded hue which is gradual and there is some gentle tonal discrepancy there. Still a wonderful piece with these blemishes
