Please help me find a black jacket (possibly with suit skirt) for work

My standard work 'suit' jacket has finally given up the ghost. It came from Jigsaw many years ago, and I wore it either with a matching skirt, or over dresses etc. It was about 50% wool, 50% acrylic. Jigsaw used to do the same material every year but vary the style slightly. But when I went to look for a replacement I was disappointed in the Jigsaw quality - the material didn't feel so 'heavy' and I felt it would look worn out quite soon.

Can anyone help me find a replacement? I want black, fitted, and quite short. I am 5'6'' and a size 8, with no bust to speak of.

I have looked in M & S (they felt way too flimsy) and online at Hobbs, which looked to have some good jackets but none in my size that were black.

Budget is about £120 - may stretch to more if it is perfect. Is that a realistic budget? Would also like a skirt too (budget probably another £60 - 80) - not pencil, around knee length.
