I am looking for a really slim fit (tight even) black harrington style jacket in black to wear this spring. I'm 5'11" and about 140 lbs, and wear a 36 jacket and 30 waist. I have looked at the Baracuta, merc, and Warrior harrington jackets but they just don't seem to be what I am looking for. I'm really not crazy about the plaid lining as it won't really match the rest of the look I'm going for. I saw in the latest GQ a jacket by Hickey but it was really out of my price range (pretty sure it was over $500). I want one that is water repellent so I can wear it without worrying about getting soaked during the wonderful April showers, but can make do with one that is not. I would really like to be able to wear it with dark jeans, tucked in white dress shirt, and a narrow black tie during the cool summer nights for going out to bars and clubs. I'm willing to spend anything below $200. I usually have a lot of my clothes altered so if I can just buy a Baracuta or merc and have it slimmed down (specifically in the sleeves) that won't be a problem but I didn't know if a tailor could do anything to such a casual jacket?
