    Hey guys,
    So I know this defies the typical rule of "good fast cheap pick two", but I need a little of all three on short notice. I need a solid fall sportcoat for an event this weekend. I don't yet own a navy blue coat, so I was thinking of taking it that direction, but a tweed or similar would also be cool.

    That being said, I have a budget of 500$. Where could I order a suit online, have it overnighted and expect a decent off the rack fit? I am a pretty typical 42R with slightly longer arms.

    Thanks for the help!

    Why not buy in person? That way you know how it'll fit. You may be able to get an okay fit OTR. The odds of you getting a good fit with no alterations on something you've never even tried on are miniscule.

    Buy a navy blazer in a year-round weight.

    suit - a set of outer clothes made of the same fabric and designed to be worn together, typically consisting of a jacket and trousers or a jacket and skirt.

    suiting - fabric for suits

    While I'm not entirely sure whether it's a suit or a jacket that you're looking for, here are a couple options for you that fit the price-point and are relatively good value (with the Benjamin suit likely being superior):
