I've seen a few on Ebay from time to time but you will pay through the nose to get it.  Far as I know there isn't anyone planning on remaking them any time soon.

I just found a pic of his jacket,but it's from the sequel . Nice though

update : I didn't know you were reffering to the sequel ,as I just read there was no jacket in the first movie . I thought so ,as all I remember was a red cowboy shirt

Yes, I am in the process of making the replica jacket.  I have the pattern and most of the correct material, I am still searching for a better match on the main red material.  I should have them for sale soon.

^^ That and the differant font ,and the wong color font ,and the bird look's like sh**,and the red stuff looks like something from a space suit lol

I am sure the Hitman will pay way more attention to detail when he gets his made . Can't wait to see them really ,as it's going to be one of those must have's for me !
