Condition: Good. It’s a little crumpled in places, see photos and there is feint foxing here and there but I don’t think it detracts too much and this bag is still very much usable. The lining fabric has a tear around the brass clasp also.
Vintage sizing is very different to modern day sizes, they’re usually smaller depending on the era of manufacture. So to ensure a good fit please go by the measurements provided. I measure the garment laid flat edge to absolute edge then double, which give the maximum, you will need to measure your own clothes to compare sizing.
