More photos available on request. CONDITION, BLACK / WHITE JACKET.In the bottom of the left interior pocket there is one small less than 1 diam. Light brown discoloration which I did not attempt to clean. Otherwise both pocket interiors are like new. There are a couple of small holes in the right ribbed cuff (see photos of the back of the right sleeve). These holes do not show when the jacket is reversed. This does not appear to be bug damage (I detect no bug damage to this jacket). On the right sleeve there is some minor unstitching to the piping near the cuff. There are a few small faint spots on the right front of the body that I did not attempt to clean.
On very close inspection you may detect a few small scattered spots on the white sleeves (again, I have not attempted to clean the jacket in anyway). None of this is conspicuous. CONDITION, BLUE / WHITE JACKET.Minor unstitching to the left pocket trim. Small discoloration to the back of the right sleeve which I did not attempt to clean. Consult photos for all of this.
