RLBL Anthony Solid suit in black - is black appropriate for work?
E.Zegna Milano cut suit in dark navy blue - will be picking up this Saturday
What are some good everyday suits under $800?
If you have a budget of $800 per suit, don't bother with Joseph A. Bank. Brooks Brothers is fine and more conservative than Suit Supply, but you are going to have to wait for sales to get something good (1818 line) under $800. Suit Supply, assuming you can find a cut and fabric that is conservative enough for your office, is the best bargain of the bunch. Fortunately SS has a B&M store in DC.
For $800, you are getting into MTM territory, which you might want to consider once you get a feel for what you like and what fits.
As for black, it wouldn't be my first choice for a business suit. Since you only have 2 suits right now, you should probably wear it. A lot depends on how the rest of your office is dressing.
