This evening coat is in excellent condition for its age.  No significant flaws that I can see, perhaps a tiny smudge but nothing that stands out. The coat was slightly crushed when received but has been dry-cleaned and has come up beautifully. Further dry-cleaning will eliminate any fine crease lines that remain.  It really is one of the loveliest evening coats I've seen, both in colour and cut.
