Two-button notched-lapel? Sorry, but you have not purchased a DJ. You have purchased a black suit. It doesn't make that much difference what accessories you wear with it.
If it were an actual single-breasted DJ, then a cummerbund or a vest would be mandatory. And yes, you would need suspenders.
As for you theory about peak lapels having high armholes and narrow sleeves, I think this pretty much covers it,
I am also concerned about your comment that you would have to spend $100 on alterations. Perhaps you meant $100 extra on alterations. But the absolute key to any RTW tuxedo is having it properly altered by an independent tailor, i.e., not the guy in the shop. You should expect to spend $100-$150 in alterations to make your new DJ your own. If you do, even an inexpensive one will look great. If you don't, it will almost certainly look like crap regardless of how much you paid for it.
--> Armani Tux, notch lapel. Odds are, most wouldn't consider this a black suit.http://www.josbank.com/menswear/shop...1_10050_101492
--> My mistake, it is a 1 button. The Canali and Abboud I tried on were 2 button. Again, most wouldn't consider this a black suit. Just to clarify, I ordered it with flat-front pants, not the pleats.
