Your list is a good one, but don't put brand name over fit. Most of my suits are Hickey Freeman mainline as their 39R fits me pretty well. Go to stores, try on all of those on your list and go with the best fit. Alternatively, find a good local MTM tailor and have one made with your choice of style, fabric, options, etc. If there are no decent tailors near you, make an appointment with one before your next trip to NYC or Chicago. mytailor.com and other traveling tailors...

Baume Mercier has a good selection in your price range. You will not, however, find a gold or platinum watch for that price unless you go used or vintage.
Hickey Freeman mainline have been my staple suits for over ten years. The Boardroom, Madison, etc. mainline suits were unfused fully canvased whereas the LTD line was not. The company has had their ups and downs over the past few years and I'm not as familiar with their current lineup. I would suggest trying them on locally rather than buying on line. I'm not sure what overstock carries, but I'd venture to guess it's not their highest quality line. Calling their customer...
