I covet aimlessly

I dropped off some shoes at the local leather shop (English riding to motorcycle to re-enactment... "if you can draw it, we can make it") for re-heeling and re-soling and went to pick them up yesterday. Hanging on a rack, waiting to be repaired, was a leather coat.

I coveted it immediately. Double-breasted, with frock coat-like ornaments at the collar and cuffs - also done in leather, to match the coat. Warm, brown leather. I promised the coat that if it had a cousin in something slightly larger than a size 6, I would hug it and love it and call it George.

The tag said "LAMB" (but showed a pirate ship?) and "Fall 2005." That sounded all fashiony and stuff, but the other tag said, "Made in China." So... designer knockoff?

To the Google Engine!

L.A.M.B. is singer Gwen Stefani's line of clothing (and the logo for 2005 was indeed a pirate ship). The only images from her 2005 collection I can find are of some over-priced tank tops on eBay. I am somewhat solaced by knowing that, even if I could find a cousin to that jacket on eBay or similar, it would not be my size - L.A.M.B. tops out at a 14.

Sigh. When I find the magic machine that gives me infinite time, I need to learn to really sew.
