Kit's school jumper discontinued :P

Well, fuck. Kit's School Outfit is apparently discontinued -- it wasn't on display at AGDC when I went today, and when I asked a salesperson about it, he offered to look in the backroom, then consulted with another salesperson (saying "Ah, I'll ask the expert") and reported that it was recently discontinued.

Not that I was especially planning to get it -- I'm all about the mix'n'matching, so an outfit as matchy-matchy as that one wasn't really up my alley -- but it was blue. I like blue. And the putative replacement is seriously fugly... and, of course, pink. :P

(In other news, I've got a giant Detail Close-Up Photos Of AGDC Displays post coming on my LJ later this week, to be linked here. I'll be going in to Tysons again before then, so if you're specially interested in non-catalog shots/descriptions of any current AG item, please do place requests here! :D I know more and more people live near AG stores as they expand, but I'd never been in range of one before I moved to the DC Metro area, so. *shrugs*)

Damn, really? Kit's blue school outfit was on my short list of things to buy from AG. I wish I'd known it was on the chopping block so I could have snagged it when I had the chance. :(
doomandnachos replied below to me instead of you, I think; they gave the direct link to the outfit, and when I go there and put the outfit in my shopping cart it still says "Available" rather than "Backordered" or "Sold out". So there's a chance you can still snap it up online if you want. :-)
You can try ordering it online:

There's always a few "discontinued" items available this way - they don't completely take them off the site. It won't show up if you're just browsing through Kit's clothing, but if you Google the outfit name, you can find the link, and you can add it to your bag. Now, there's no guarantee they'll actually be able to fill the order, but if you really want it, it's worth a shot.

Honestly, I had no idea the blue outfit was still available - I thought the pink school set had replaced it ages ago. Shows how much attention I pay to Kit's collection!
Thanks for the info! :D I've linked irishgypsie to it, and I'll be keeping that in mind for future "omg discontinued" searches.

Heh, I'm just the opposite -- I pay very little attention to the new outfits for the first eight girls (well, four now) that aren't part of their original core six, but I notice immediately when one of the core outfits disappears. And I've been in and out of AGDC for the past few months, since I worked the holiday season at another store in Tysons I, so I knew the blue school outfit had been there as of late December.
Ooof. I got it long ago when the newer set came out, because I didn't want to take the chance. (Kit was not one of my faces but she grew on me.) I think next time I have the money and the time to swing up to AG Seattle I should get Kit's desk, before it poofs on me.
