There's only one cloth belt loop instead of the expected pair. (No matching belt found, sorry.)

Minor pulling along shoulder seam (just above where the pad is attached).

A fingertip-sized spot of mending at rear edge of the collar. Done by hand tidily by a previous owner. Easy to miss and shouldn't be visible during wear.  See pic.


Our pieces are true vintage with a history and a past life, not newly made reproductions. Minor signs of previous use and age are normal and expected for all true vintage pieces. Flaws and issues are carefully noted/photographed, and our detailed photos give you a good idea of the look of each garment. We're happy to answer any questions you might have to help you with online purchasing.
