Presents superbly, with no wear evident to outer. The back neck lining and label has some discolouration, so too the wrist lining, which obviously isn't seen when worn and had been dry cleaned. The cleaner's tag left a little hole in the neck lining also, and the label has pulled a small hole at one corner, negligible. Inside wrist lining has a little wear, and the underarm lining has been handstitched as pictured.
