Colour-wise, navy blue or grey are most versatile.  What jobs are you applying for?  More staid professions might dictate a grey suit, others a navy.  Navy is better for weddings, grey better for funerals.  Not a pinstripe at first.  Two-button single-breasted best bet for most people.   If you're planning to wear the suit most days you should really get at least two.  Or two pairs of trousers for one suit.   £200 or a shade more should be OK for a suit from Lewin or...
Re Tapering and Slimming Down of Suit Pants, it's very easy.  I have a sewing machine and do it myself, just got to make sure you balance the adjustments on each side to maintain the balance of the pants (and make sure the crease is still in the middle!).  A tailor should be able to do it without any problems and fairly cheaply.  At the same time you can adjust the length of the leg if necessary.  Remember that you will want a slightly shorter leg if you're tapering...

Timo - what material are they please (sorry if I've missed this earlier in the thread). Thanks.
Definitely not Reiss, they don't do long length and the original poster is 6'3".  Don't understand why Reiss want to deliberately not supply any tall people.
Try Charles Tyrwhitt, they simply have Classic and Slim Fit suits so less confusion over the ranges, and they're surprisingly good quality for what looks like just another internet shirt shop.  If you have an outlet nearby (Cheshire Oaks or Bicester) you can get one well within budget.  You should also consider buying a size down in the Classic Fit as that can also result in a decent slim fit.   For Boss you really are paying quite a lot for the name.   Lucan
I picked up a cheap black suit recently (Charles Tyrwhitt, unworn for £50).  I was unsure about it first and would certainly not recommend a black suit before Charcoal and Navy, but I've grown to like it and wouldn't dispense with it just because it's black.   I think it looks particularly effective with pink shirts, and despite a comment above I prefer it with white shirts to blue.
