Looking specifically for solid color with white piping. I can only find ones that are OUTRAGEOUS looking. Any ideas?

I am trying to find one of these for a Prisoner costume, but to no avail. Patrick McGoohan's blazer is dark brown with cream piping. I have seen Navy with White Piping (Ralph Lauren Rugby I think) and not much else. The Hotel Portmeirion (location of the show) has a reproduction for sale on their web site, but is is black and white and suspiciously cheap. There has to be a place to get custom versions of these for boating clubs, or are those days behind us? I think I would wear the Blazer casually so I would pay a reasonable price (~$400) for a well constructed one.

The one at Rugby has a pretty garish crest on it, and I would prefer not to be a poseur and wear one with an established school tie, a la:

I'm not sure I've ever seen a "subdued" Regatta blazer. Usually BB carries them in the summer and they are pretty outlandish. Might want to check the sale section on their site.

I have four all from www.sherrys.co.uk

Navy with sky stripes
Green black and red
Purple black and white
Red blue and white

Great slim fit, nice, lightweight wool-cotton mix. Contact Darin at the shop which is just off carnaby street in London. He's a great bloke with great customer service.

The one currently on the rugby site has no crest but it is made of cotton fleece for some reason. I would never wear a crest associated with something I am not affiliated with.

I may have to break down and have one custom made at my taylor some day. Still an awful lot of money for a costume item, so I had better make sure it is nice enough to wear in other situations.
