    Thinking of going full cray-cray and getting a custom suit with late 10s/ early 20s styling.

    Ideally, it would have a cut similar to the ones seen here:

    Required:
    Peak lapels done in a style appropriate to the period
    Vest (single or double breasted) w/ lapel
    High rise, skinny pants with absolutely no break
    Slim cut with plenty of suppression

    I don't mind if it's fully-canvassed or half-canvassed, I just want the cut to look like the the great depression never happened.

    My budget should be about $1200 tops. Any ideas on where to look? Is this even possible with that price tag?
