Um, someone really needs to buy this. Yes, it is mint condition, early '90s Moschino. And, obviously, it's totally amazing. But most importantly—and anyone who spent the mid-'90s glued to Comedy Central on Saturday afternoons can tell you this—it is probably the most iconic article of clothing featured on legendary Britcom Absolutely Fabulous. A major feat considering Fashion was nearly as important a character on the booze-and-cocaine-fueled comedy as were Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone.

Sure, the girls talked more about Lacroix, Chanel and Stella McCartney, and, yes, the only pieces we recall with boob-spanning logos were by Donna Karan. But no shred of clothing characterizes Edina's who-cares-if-it's-crazy-and/or-too-tight-because-you-can't-afford-it-and-I-can attitude than this puzzle piece-printed, tasseled Moschino bomber that popped up several times in season 1. Bonus: this particular find doesn't seem to be stretched out two sizes and stained with Bolli-Stolis.

You have five days to bid—it's only $20.
