Allo! And welcome to Court Records! Don't worry, you posted just fine~
But yeah, I'm in the same boat as you. Me and my friend wanted to do a Pollo and Clay cosplay duo, with her being Clay, but the ones she finds online are much too expensive, and a lot of the sites don't JUST sell the coat, or, they are not the best of qualities.
But I share your feelings, the Jacket is just so dang gorgeous! They honestly need to be selling it around more. Unfortunately, I offered to sew my friend the jacket for her, so we stopped looking around for it, so i can't help in that regard, but perhaps you can do the same. I find hand made outfits always turn out best in terms of quality, since it will always have your standards.
But, if you can't sew, don't worry, the designs are simple enough on the jacket that you'll be able to pull it off. You can get a base navy blue jacket from a store, or even a thrift Store (a Cosplayers haven). The basic design for the coat is thankfully rather simple and much like regular clothing. And the other adornments, just visit your local fabrics store and purchase white and red and cut out the shapes and sew them to the jacket.
The only trickier part is that collar it's got going. I'd personally recommend getting a collar from a men's dress shirt, and upholstering it with appropriate coloured fabric and then sewing it on. You could also find a sturdy fabric instead of using a men's collar if you don't want to wreck a shirt, (Or buy a whole new one just to cut up).
Sorry if I rambled on, I hope I helped out in some way, and good luck!
