J. Crew Factory Herringbone Puffer Vest

J. Crew Factory has several puffer vests to choose from this season: solid color, 
buffalo blue, camo, but the hardest to find is the black herringbone version.  
I set my sights on this one because I have several tops in my closet that would pair well with it, plus it would be versatile for weekend and work wear.  
A couple of months ago it was sold out online.  I kept checking online, then it showed it was available, so I ordered one as fast as I could, hoping it wouldn’t sell out in the process.  The next day I received an email saying it was actually unavailable.  Ugh!  Two days later I even received a phone call from a representative telling me it was on backorder and if I wanted to reserve one.  I asked when it would be available and he said the end of October!  
I told him thank you for offering to help, but I’ll try to find one.  
I called the nearest J. Crew Factory store and asked if they had one in stock.  The salesman said they did not, but asked if I would like for him to find one in stock in another store.  I said sure, and he located one in Florida.  They gave me the phone number to that store and I was able to order it.  They shipped it and I received it last week.  
Talk about great service!  
I absolutely love this vest.  It’s toasty warm and have had a few comments on it.  
Has anyone else had this much trouble locating the “Elusive Black Herribone Vest”?
