Delightfully wearable shape, with no obtrusive flaws. Any small faults do not retract from wearability and will be fully-disclosed. Noted issues: side-seam is worn between topstitching at two small spots. Underarm sleeve fabric shows stress along seam (no fade). Frayed label.
Noted repairs: a 1" tear in the collar has been mended (new seam is visible at collar). One side seam has been partly restitched (4").
The shirt is very-wearable but should be hand-laundered to prolong its use.
** Vintage items are precious, pre-owned pieces of history. Many have unique dyes and handcrafted prints, artisan weaves and intricate hand-tailoring -- details no longer available except in modern couture. Please love & respect your vintage.
