    Can anyone recommend me where I can find a cheap black suit (for funerals)? I was hoping for suitsupply.com but they didn't have it.

    Check in shops until you find one.

    Just wear a charcoal gray suit to funerals. Black is a waste of money IMO

    If you're going to buy a suit at least buy one you can wear to more than just funerals.

    Exactly. Always think about value for money.

    The man asked for a black suit for a funeral. It's not an unreasonable request. OP, maybe an option would be to find something on eBay in your size, if you know your measurements? Surely you could find some kind of BB or RL suit for a nice price.

    I have absolutely no other need for a black suit except for this purpose. I tried eBay but it was slim pickings.

    Perhaps it may be helpful to outline your budget; that way, it's easier to pick out a few options.

    You could get a Benjamin suit from ehaberdasher in black from just under $500, comparable to suit supply in price...

    I was thinking about $200-350 if possible. But under $500 for sure.

    I think that charcoal and navy are more versatile options that (at least in my opinion) are suitable for funerals.

    That said, one can buy a wool suit at that price at just about any department store. It won't be a great suit, but if properly tailored, it will serve your purpose.

    Uniqlo, should be around $250, might fit you better than the suits people like here, wool is sometimes nice and construction is passable.
