Here are the two suits I like and that fit well.

I like the Oxford with a nice dark polished toe...
I will check those out. Thanks!@Loathing, I'm not asking for anything on a platter but you have been a great help, thanks. I'll keep reading and looking around on the forums.
I went to almost 10 stores today and didn't find much. Most brands from Hugo to Armani were at minimum $895 up to $2000. I went to Bloomingdales, Nieman Marcus, Nordstroms, Saks Fifth Avenue, Mens warehouse and all the standard department stores.

Hey guys, I have enoyed reading the forums but the more I read the more I realize I know literally nothing about how to dress nice. I'm attending a friends wedding in March and want to buy an upgrade to the crappy/cheap suit I have now. I'm 5'10" 180lbs, 38-40 chest, Blondish hair with green eyes. I would like to work off that to build a stunning outfit that isn't boring but not over the top either. Below is generally what I want but need some help with brands and types...
