I'm a New York denizen who'd like to know the same thing. Let me give you my opinions on your question. As far as the places you've already mentioned, the one time I went to the Vacca store on Fifth, the prices were pretty high (around $4000 for a suit, $3500 for a jacket). I have never gone back to see if they had massive sales, although I doubt it. The Borrelli store on 60th is presently having a sale. Their $2900 suits are 30% off and may go down to 50% off; assuming their jackets are a little less, you might be able to pick one up for $1200(?) if you're lucky. Haven't been to the Kiton store, but would be surprised if you could get something near to that price. You might try Peter Elliot on Madison around 80th Street. They carry Isaia and Kiton and may be having good sales right now. Haven't visited but they tend to be pretty sane. For a while they operated an "outlet store" where they sold the stuff from the back room. They had a couple marsh colored Kiton suits for around $1000. I know they've closed the store but you should call and ask where they sell their overstock now -- it's some consignment store on the UES. You might also try Ina or some of the other high end consignment stores for luck. The other thought is to try one of the tailors who come to New York. I imagine that W.W. Chan can do a very good jacket for less than $1000, but never having tried their product I cannot state definitively.
