Chest if garment 37", fits a 34" chest well

Presents excellentl, a couple of very small well done darns to ribbing, which just present themselves as blips to the weave rather than bulky stitching- see cuff photo. A nick to the patch edge, and couple of small nibble holes to lining, not seen when worn obviously. The odd discolouration to cream stripe of the ribbing, and a small number of nibbles to the pile of the main body which are not holes, see close up of popstud for worst example- not noticeable when worn at all!
