Ellow everyone. I'm on the hunt for a specific costume; a straight jacket with an assortment of buckles, straps, and chains. Since I can no longer find it for sale on the web, I'm starting to question wether or not it has been discontinued. If anyone has information as to the whereabouts of this costume, please let me know.

A photo of the elusive jacket:

This jacket reminds me of the one Lon Chaney Sr. wore as the Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Maybe I'm wrong?
Maybe he played halfback instead?

It looks like the one Distortions makes (Item # Du1522). I think I paid about $150 for mine from Morris Costumes. You can see it on distortions website. Go to costumes then look under the full body section and you can see the photo of it.

Ah! Thank you!

I've been searching high and low for this thing.

That's good and maybe necessary searching "High and low" since Lon was sometimes high in the belfry and often low on the street level getting flogged.
Flogging the belfry was prohibited, even then.

I heard from Distortions today regarding the Straight Jacket and it is discontinued.
