Wanted: Trench

I have been hoping to acquire a spring jacket, and I believe I want that jacket to be a coat. A trench coat. I have been hoping to find something unique yet classic, and maybe shying away from a boring khaki trench. Cheap Mondays spinoff label Kostym has a pretty cool dark grey jacket, but Im not sure if im sold on it. Acne has a really cool khaki jacket, but it was $850 at BlackBird in Seattle. I think finding vintage will be difficult, because trenchs are traditionally worn 1) by old, fat men. So they are all l-xl and 2) worn oversized, as an overcoat 3) will not maintain good structure and will fit like a tarp wrapped around me.
below is the grey kostym trench and the nicer acne trench
