    I'm looking for a very specific suit, and while it doesnt seem like it should be that hard to find, I'm at a loss for exactly where to go. Here's what I'd like:

    -charcoal as dark as possible without being black, either no pattern or a very subtle pattern
    -3 piece- vest with lapels
    -ticket pocket

    Everything else I'm flexible on, including material (synthetic is fine). I'd like to spend no more than $200 if possible. If it makes a difference, I am 42L and located in the midwest USA.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    Considering your suit constraints, budget and location, I would say ebay or thrift stores. Give the buying and selling forum here on SF a try.

    The problem is the vest with lapels. That's making it a lot harder to find.

    MTM: I doubt you will find a waistcoat with lapels RTW these days.
