Occasionally you may see the word “Deadstock” used in HoW listings. This is not a reference to condition, but rather an indication that the garment/item in question has never been used, and is sometimes in original packaging or with original tags. These items may still have fading, staining or other issues from years of storage, but any visible flaws will be noted in the description.
