    probably not, thats not a tennis jacket, you would have your best bet trying a nike shop, nut if you live in the uk and there isnt any nike shops, try one of those shops likejd sports or another fashion sportswear shop

    I have a similar looking one from Fischer (hard to find!) and just last weekend I saw a tracksuit from Australian in a shop with a top like that.

    Okay, I had to look this word up. If I'm understanding this right, it is basically a cross between what we call a Wigger and a Guido. Quite a combo. LOL

    We pretty much have Chavs here, but we don't use the same word. There's a huge crew of kids in my town that fit the bill pretty well that we refer to as "rats." The term's origin is based on the term "mall rats," which are kids that hang out in shopping centers. The group in my town hung out in our town square, so we called them "plaza rats" or just "rats" for short. Their speech is a combination of whigger, cholo, and redneck, while their dress is more of a combination of the first two. Most of them are about 5 ft tall, which I am guessing is either due to heavy drug use at a young age or maybe they are drawn to that scene because they can't fight on their own--I can't really say whether the chicken or the egg came first. Standard issue to the rat are peach fuzz mustaches, lots of red clothing, "gold" chains that can be purchased off of reels by the inch, and either a fresh pair of two striped shell toes or Nike banana shoes.

    You clearly said that you come from Australia. Why make that up? :
