lol...probably the best option.
I can understand the attraction. I'm no expert by any means, but I've been doing my homework over the past few months. I own a Boss suit and a blazer. I know they aren't made well and I (now know) that they're not a good deal for the money. However; I like the way that they look on me. I like the cut, I like the style, and I like the pattern (on the blazer anyway, suit is navy). I don't think I will ever buy another (you can find much better deals in the merchant forum here), but I don't feel bad when I'm wearing them.

I'm sure you can find a better suit (for the size) in other brands. You need to go in good department stores and try a lot of suits, until you find one that fits well. You can find a lot for the price you want to pay.
They will be similar in quality and fabrics. I do not know the all the brands in the USA but I hear that Jos. A. Bank, the Men's Warehouse and Brooks Brothers are big sellers (if you are in the USA). You have web sites that also sell suits (when you know what you want more precisely).
Nice, fitted and slim are not exactly the main qualities of a Boss suit... I wanted to buy a Boss at Saks on 5th, 5 years ago... I finally went for a Burberry London (was 6,4 feet and 175 lbs in that time). Was pretty good for the $1,100 USD.
I only use that as an example that a brand is not exactly what you target first, fit, fabric and style is more important.
You may find online tailors that will make it "pretty good" for you. Another option for you
Really? I've found Boss jackets to be a much slimmer fit than most American styles. 6'4 175 is an odd build. You're very slim for your height. I'm 5'11 185 and the two Boss jackets I have have a tailored look (not too slim). Also... Jos A Bank and Men's Warehouse are really bad. BB is nice of course and, a this price pont, not a bad suggestion if you can find an 1818 (don't buy the outlet brand).
