Where might I procure a cheap old timey laced vest for a nerdy Game of Thrones Halloween costume?

For Halloween this year I think I want to be Asha Greyjoy from Game of Thrones as it suits me well (I've already got short black hair and pirate-y boots) and for once is timely (plus she's rad). I think I've got most of it down--the axe and dagger will be easy to make for cheap, most of her outfit like a loose, pirate-y top and pants can be found easily at thrift stores--but a big part of what will make it recognizable is having the tighter laced vest over the top, and I don't know where to find one for a reasonable price. Any suggestions or leads? (I can't sew and don't know anyone who can, so that's out.)
Also, any stickler's tips or details I might've missed about her character that would make the costume more immediately recognizable would be great too. Really anything to help make the costume work.
I can't believe I'm doing this as I'm normally not a balls out nerdy nerd (saying this with affection) in public, so I don't know much about costume tricks!
