Hello gents - I'm a newb (and female) and I come here in hopes of gleaning some useful information. I'm a vintage reseller, and I recently came across a vintage 80s/early 90s Davies & Son jacket that's showing it's age slightly but I wasn't sure what the preference would be for the man purchasing it with regard to the repairs. It really only needs the buttons re-sewn (one has come off but I have it, the rest are still attached), and maybe some maintenance to fix what looks like a poorly executed repair to the lining. Given that the purchaser would likely want this tailored, would it make more sense to just sell it as-is and let him take care of it, or have the repairs done before listing it and note that it's been spruced up?

I think as a purchaser I would prefer the repairs to have already been done.
