Description: You'd be forgiven for thinking this was another plain men's pullover, but it has (in my opinion) a rather pleasing all-over diamond pattern, giving a more sophisticated look.
The pattern is in fair condition, with a small tear in the margin, but the pages have come adrift at the spine fold.
