In summary, the speaker has been accepted into a Physics-chemistry Prepa program and is looking to replace their inexpensive Chemistry vest with a professional lab coat. They ask for recommendations on where to buy one online, and the other person suggests checking their college's magazine or store. The speaker thanks them for their help.

I have been accepted in Physics-chemistry Prepa.
And i would like to get rid of my ridiculous 2 dollar Chemistry vest for a real professional one.

I use the word 'vest' because i don't really know the equivalent in English language (i live in France).i mean the white outfit chemist wear in laboratory.

I can only help you with the language: I think the word is "lab coat"
I can't tell you where to buy it though (probably your college's magazine/store or something like that).
