Woolrich has a sample sale twice a year in NYC that normally includes a fair amount of Baracuta stock for about $100-$150 (Woolrich/Baracuta have the same holding company).
Other than that your only hope is to hold out for end of season sales (kafka, oi polloi, end, and others have had them for <$200 at some point). When W.P. Lavori bought the brand a few years back they really jacked up the prices.
Also this thread seems to hate Baracuta jackets, not sure why.
