Blue is a solid choice and undoubtedly one of the most versatile colors for suits. I would recommend you go with something that has a bit of character to the fabric but keep it subtle. You can experiment more with your choices as your wardrobe grows. As far as traveling tailors I have had success with them in the past but have only dabbled in the shirting realm.
