    I'm currently looking for a slim-fitting, black moleskin sports jacket cut in a modern style (narrow lapels, high notch, etc.). No idea where to start looking - would someone be able to point out a few examples and/or manufacturers? BTW I do not make purchases online, so ebay isn't an option.

    Just recently I had a similar jacket destroyed at the dry cleaners, which is the reason I'm looking for a replacement. Fitted very well, and was rather elegant, yet casual.

    I am nearly sure that Helmut Lang made just that jacket a couple of seasons ago. It might have been made as part of a suit, but whatever.

    Why not?  Bluefly and eBay can open up a whole new world.  I had your attitude a few years ago, but then I realized it is much easier for a waiter to steal your credit card numbers with a swipe device than a hacker to steal it over the net.

    I like to try things on before I buy them. I know there are returns policies, but I don't like using them time after time. Being a slim, athletic person, I find that even when shopping I have to try on many things just to find one sufficiently slim-fitting (anything between 38- and 42-inch shoulder measurements, non-muscular chest and a 28-30 inch waist).
