Have you checked out your local Brooks Brothers? Go and try on a 1818 Regent and Fitzgerald at BB. If you can wait for a sale, you can get them for ~ $500. PRL suits are pretty decent, but I would try to find a RL store to try them on for fit. If they fit you and you can get them for less than $500, then go for it. For best fit, you will want to find a good alterations tailor.
I don't think it matters either way and it is based on your preference. I have a custom blazer with surgeons cuff, but I hardly gave it any thought as all my custom jackets have functional sleeve buttons.

A 9.5 D Cliftons may fit better if 9.5D PAs were tight.
Well made conservative suits - even better if you get them at a deep discount.

HSM suits are "Made in USA", so most people consider them to be better constructed than suits made overseas (e.g. Jos A Bank suits). They are usually fused, though some people have commented that the Gold Trumpeter line is half-canvassed. I don't think $400 is a great deal for an HSM suit, but if you need it in a solid color, in charcoal, and it fits well on you, then I'd say go for it. If you can spend a little extra money, I would get a Hickey Freeman Madison suit...

Realistically, where can you get a half-canvassed 100% wool suit for $197? Their retail price of $1095 is a joke, but I would probably say that their sale today is not bad for someone looking for a "starter" suit.
Anyone know who makes their "Made in Canada" jackets?
