Here was I thinking you spotted it here http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=197868, quickly PM'd the seller for label pics, posted them in this thread to see if the seller had undervalued the jacket before committing and then decided to buy it anyway on the off chance. My interest? I was waiting for you to start threatening bleachboy if it...
Out of interest, why do you need to know quickly?
