Budget Find - Myne Scout Jacket

I have been lusting over this 'Scout' jacket by Myne for over a year after seeing it on Marlien Rentmeester of LE CATCH and Sincerely Jules. The black white colors are perfectly neutral but the fun pattern keeps things interesting. I also find the collar less cut very fresh in a sea of blazers and moto jackets. I wanted one, but the nearly $150 price tag (with shipping and taxes) is a little over my budget. Light jackets/blazers seem to be weakness of mine and couldn't spend that much on yet another one. It's been in my 'saved searches' on ebay for over a year and not one has come. I didn't think I could find a cheaper alternative given the jackets unique cut and print. But low and behold I found something similar enough today by chance at H&M. No, it's not identical but for only $40 it's close enough! I was actually surprised by the price tag, the jacket (feels more like a heavy cardigan) has a lot of weight to it and the knit and weaving is very detailed, something I have lately not come to expect from H&M. It's the perfect thing to throw on for falls cool and clip mornings. Good news- H&M now has online shopping, buy the cardigan here
