Condition: we found a 3" slit in the back yoke of the LINING: this is not visible when worn, and would be easy to mend: we simply haven't had the time to do so yet. Also, the linings of the sleeves at the underarms are strained: again, this is not visible when worn.
Our local dry cleaner has now ruined a few garments, so we no longer have a reliable cleaner near us, so this has not been cleaned. It is wrinkled in our images: that is especially evident in the back view photos. We've found no spots, stains or odors on it.
