Seeking: Abercrombie & Fitch Patchwork Safari Jacket; Another Slips By

Having been on the search for this jacket for over ten years, I sad to report that another has slipped through my fingers. Admittedly, it was a women's jacket in the incorrect size, but they surface so infrequently that I was still sorely tempted to purchase even though it would fit like the chunky kid raiding his scrawny cousin's cooler closet.

Over $400 was just too much for a jacket that didn't fit, though I must admit, I haven't even been in the same room as one of the jackets and I would have loved to just check it out and get to the bottom of this caper.

Know where there is an original jacket from the storied outfitter Abercrombie & Fitch? Let me know! It has been on my epic want list since the epic want list was hatched 4 years ago. In that time, several have orbited me, tantalizingly close, only to slip away.

On eBay, the one that got away, sadly, no affiliation.
