I want a marching band jacket for my kid who is too little to march in a band.

I didn't buy this jacket
when my kid was a baby. Who spends over a hundred bucks on something so frivolous? I didn't, but have been obsessed with it ever since. Does anything exist on earth that is similar and would suit a preschool-size boy? Boy being the operative word.

I have lost more than one ebay auction for the Stella jacket, and after two years of googling for alternatives, I have come here for help. The military/band jacket fad has passed, but before it did I saw a number of kids' jackets kind of like this, they were all rather explicitly for girls. Pink bows, ruffle trim, pastel, etc.
Ebay auctions for this coat are now hovering near $250. Stella makes a green waistcoat
with a similar vibe but it doesn't move me. I can't imagine getting someone to make something even close to this would cost much less. And I wouldn't deal with Etsy unless I knew of someone who had experience doing this type of thing, and could do it well.
If only there was a rental service for designer children's wear - having just one photo of my kid in this jacket would probably slake this ridiculous desire.
