Condition:  This 1980s ladies coat is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear or stains but has a couple of minor issues.  The first is a missing button at the upper left - you have the option of finding a match, replacing all four or leaving as is.  The second is an open seam to the lining at the waist, but this is really nothing, and a minor repair for a seamstress.  Otherwise, the label is a little soiled and although very acceptable as is, this 1980s ladies coat would benefit from a dry cleaning.

This is a very stylish 1980s ladies coat - Holt Renfrew only sold quality garments, wonderful 80s look!
