CONDITION - The jacket is in very good to excellent condition. Shows a little wear around the inside of the collar and on some of the edges and outer seams, it's like a light shiny wear.
The skirt is good with 4 pinhead sized holes down the front and some tiny pin-dot sized holes starting. Light wear to fabric on the outside around one of the holes and some tiny faint wear spots, possibly from some surface moth munching. Skirt is still very wearable, I only spotted the holes when I held it up to the light.
