This was probably done because part of the original stringing might have broken and when retied, was too short to draw through both loops. I have left this as is but you can restring the arms if you so choose. The original stringing of the legs is relaxed but not broken.His clothing is sewn to him, but I was able to unbutton the jacket, lift the pant legs and move enough around to check for any repairs etc. He is free of any breaks, chips and repairs.
Though worn, the red velvet suit with original buttons, loops, attached collar and undershirt are marvelous in my opinion. He retains both his original socks, but sadly, only one original shoe.
