Condition of shirts
As the items originate from the seasons they were sold many of our items are pre-worn, however we will only sell items that we believe to be of good enough quality to be worn with pride or fit into your collection. Used shirt condition rating – Graded as; Mint, Excellent, Very Good, Good and Fair, with the former being the best condition. Each item has its own individual condition details which will state if there are any flaws. Please note that the condition ratings are relative to age. An older shirt in excellent condition may have a few small bobbles, whereas a newer season shirt will be almost new. New Shirts – New shirts will have; ‘As New’, ‘w/Tags’, or ‘BNIB’ in the title. Please check in the product for an actuate description of tags and packaging included.
