Condition Detail
Lovely condition overall, the black side of the coat is mint and like new, the offwhite side has a few mild snags at back neck area and several small areas of beige discolor, a few are noticeable (see fourth photo for the most obvious area), could likely be improved by a professional spotter but as it is, the white side couldn't easily be worn due to the staining

Washing Instructions
Dry clean

Please note: All measurements (bust - waist - hip) are the maximum body measurements that will fit the item. These measurements already have ease subtracted and they are not actual fabric widths. To get actual fabric widths add two inches at the bust - one inch at the waist and two inches at the hip.

For coats & jackets, remember that you may be wearing layers between yourself and the coat. Please take measurements while wearing these layers to get the best idea of fit. Questions about fit? Please ask! We're always happy to help :)
