Star Wars movie buffs will recognize this jacket without need for any introduction or background info.

I personally only saw the Revenge of the Sith, the third episode in the Star Wars series, so seeing this fine-looking jacket motivated me to dig a little deeper into the scene where the Yavin medal made its appearance.

In case you didn’t know, the Yavin medal is a Medal of Bravery bestowed only on the cream of the crop by the Alliance to Restore the Republic.

It’s originally priced at $275 on Amazon, which just goes to show that even bravery has its discounts.

In case you don’t remember what it should look like, here’s the original scene from a 1977 clip of Star Wars: Episode IV:
