Good condition. Some slight wear and minor issues, but presents very nicely.
-Slight shoulder discolouration, see photos, and some faint discolour to the inside of the neck, but this doesn't show when worn.
-Some small holes, a couple under the arm, and a few small holes on the hip by the zipper. See photos.
-Some internal seam repairs but these aren't visible on the outside when worn. All internal seam allowances are raw cut and not overlocked, so show some fraying.
