I am shocked it took so long for this post.
If it is your first suit, at that budget I would definitely go with a brick-and-mortar outfit. Unless you are terribly difficult to fit, Ralph Lauren, Paul Stuart, or something at that quality/price point ought to be able to put you in a damn nice suit. Look for deep discounts later. Pay a bit more on this first one and get EXACTLY what you want off the rack. Please disregard the folks who suggest that you go low-level bespoke simply because it is in your price...
I bought a winter-weight double breasted Piombo blazer from Yoox a year or so ago, size 48/38. It came with cheap plastic buttons that I swapped for some real-deal French made horn buttons.

I'm with you Spoo. The only items on my next year's purchase list are new suits and replacement suits. No more SCs, PSs, or other items that tend to complicate my wardrobe. Of late I'm tending towards simple variations of navy/grey/charcoal suits + blue/white based shirts + soporific ties. Boring, but when properly executed is perfection.
