Ok, so this cosplay is pretty much sourcing and buying rather than making, because it is so easy and cheap to find. Charlie scoured eBay and found the jackets we will be using.
We went for their “US M” size, and they are slightly on the bigger side, but it really adds to comfort. (Sizes are all available on the auction page).
The shop was pleasant to deal with. We were a bit concerned how long they were taking, but emailed the seller and they got back to me within the day, and told us the item was in the UK, and I believe the day after they turned up! I would happily recommend them.
The jacket itself is very well made. There are very few minor sewing hiccups but nothing really noticeable. The embroidered patches are lovely, and these jackets feature the blue details rather than black as some of the jackets you can buy do. The only thing it would of been nice to see was if the back patch was the same as the arm ones rather than just being stuck/printed on. We may buy the patches you can get to put on the back so they all match.
Overall, I was very satisfied with the seller, and would happily use their eBay shop again!
