garment.  An inverted sleeve crease extends down the arm at the inside and outside edges.  The body of the jumper has an outward crease in the front, inverted crease in the back, and the collar has three, evenly spaced outward vertical creases.  When fitting the jumper to the individual, the
unbuttoned cuff's edge shall reach the knuckles at the base of the fingers with hands handing naturally at sides.
