What's your build like? Slim or bulked-up? Also, what's your budget? "Little money" isn't a very descriptive term.

The Ralph Lauren shoe you posted is a blucher, not a balmoral. I also vote C&J handgrade on P. Lal. Should cost around $450 shipped.
First of all, use the search button first. If you want to try a suit on before you buy it, but still get it at a bargain, try a place like Filene's. Stay away from crap like Lauren by Ralph Lauren, though. Also, if you're ever in New York, try Century 21, Daffy's, etc.
I'm judging on the basis of looks alone. I don't like the Burberry because it has a high-button stance and ultra-wide lapels. This looks good on tall, chunky guys, but not slim ones. I don't like the Burberry because the lapels are a bit too thin. I did a survey of Yoox, and came across this D&G blazer, which I think looks much better. It has a low-button stance and more conservatively-styled lapels.
Uniqlo's U.S. sizing is messed up. For example, I once bought a crewneck sweater there that fit me in a size small. A couple weeks later, I returned to the store to buy another copy of the same sweater. However, they had changed the cut of the sweater, and a size S was too tight on me. A medium fit me better. Also, I've fit into both medium and small blazers and shirts for different models. I've really found that I have to try everything on at Uniqlo before I...
