Ridiculous. They even messed up with timing... maybe if they released it for halloween it would have sold... but who is going to where this and when.

I made my costume for £5. made the top from a "white" chef's jacket. not much of a difference lol.

Sweet fancy Moses!  I didn't realize it was for sale in the Queen tat store, I figured someone in one of the forums was selling it.  This takes it to a whole Gene Simmons level!  And they spelled epaulets/epaulettes (variant) incorrectly in the description.

Hopefully they're just sticking a toe in here, and eventually planning to work all the way up to Deacon's short shorts.

Now if they'd release the Jazz-era leather thing, I'd consider it. But the Wembley-abomination...

I also thought- Why Wembley?
I'd prefer something from early 70s- some satin frock, jewellery..... :)
