Right now im looking into buying a suit for church and stuff, and i was wondering wheres a good place to buy a nice suit? i have a couple suits right now. one from express and a couple from macys. I dont wear the macys ones anymore since they are too big. i want a more fitted modern suit.

i dont want to spend over 500 and it would better if i can get under 400.
ive tried hugo but cant find any under 500. well except the nordstroms half yearly but there out of my size will have to wait til their anniversary, and ive tried on john varvatos star usa, and like it but only had it in black and i cant afford the their high end line

i like express but dont think its worth the price.

so i was wondering what are some brands that have nice suits, and also where to buy them? somewhere i can go to store or return to store would be great! im looking for a grey/charcoal suit and i wear a 40s or 40r.

If you have a Nordstrom Racks near you, then it would be a great place to shop. You can grab a nice suit for around $300.00. If you want to spend a little more, I've seen some nice Hugo Boss fitted suits there for around $500.00
Wish List: Neil Tangled Lines, Floyd Arion, Taylor Opium, Taylor Iradium all in size 34. TR Billy in Cattledrive in a size 33 too!

Banana Republic has some great suits at relatively affordable prices. I just picked up their charcoal modern fit. It's definitely more of a tailored look that slims down a bit in the waist/body, but I also ordered one of their tailored fit suits in charcoal as well off their website. The tailored fit slims down even more in the waist and the arms are a bit less loose. For a 6' tall, relatively slim and slender guy at 165lb, the tailored fit suit matches up with my body type much better. I'll try them both on before I make a final decision though.

Most BRs have a supple selection of the modern fit, but not all have a complete selection of the tailored fit, which is why I had to order my charcoal online. I was at least able to try on the same tailored cut in navy so I could compare the two cuts side by side. The jacket and pants combo will cost around $500, but if you're a student, you get 15% off, and if you use your BR card, you currently can get additional 10% off as well.

Also, as mentioned before, Nordstrom Rack has some excellent suits too for cheap. Mine had a decent selection of Hugo Boss suits for $400. Not as many in charcoal though at my store unfortunately. There are a lot of nice suits out there in the $400 to $500 price range. I wouldn't recommend going too much lower than that though. With suits, you very much get what you pay for.
Propensity for: (32W in 33+L) Taylor or Vaughn Amicites - Decay, Subversion or Deifys would all be welcomed as well
