Minor evidence of wash and wear. Button placket is slightly rippled and there are a few repairs, one to the button placket done by me and a couple on the lower front, as pictured, done by a previous owner. Also of note are the side seams are located closer towards the back of the sweater. I'm not certain why these seams are not exactly centered but it does not detract from the sweater which wears and presents beautifully!
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
