I recommend CEO, Myer or David Jones.
CEO can be had at Myer and they often reduce their suits to around $300.00 mark.
CEO have a range of half canvased suits made in China (or at least the lapels were). The only thing that put me off is the pattern matching on their check suits were a bit off around the pockets, so maybe stripes or solids would be the way to go. Anyway the quality is pretty good and the buttonsholes weren't keyholes which was a plus. hest. I know the lapels definitely are canvassed. David Jones offer Trent Nathan Made in Portugal. This is half canvassed as well. Around about $3-400.00 on sale. Farbics aren't the best but the quality of construction is pretty good.
If David Jones and Myer is all you have access to, you can count on Flair and Studio Italia (Australia) and maybe Cambridge, Rembrandt (New Zealand) in that price range. Although the first two are Australian I have seen a few of their models made in China.
Don't let Made in China put you off. Last time I went to Myer, it seemed like everything including Country Road was made there.
