Very good, only minor points to note are;
- the belt looks a little messy on the end and there isn't anything to secure the end in place once the belt is fastened so you may want to add a popper of hook at the waist size you need
- there is a faint red mark on the cuff - I have treated the mark with stain remover but it didn't come out
