Help with wedding outfit

After the postponement of our wedding originally planned for this summer, my fiance and I have decided to still have a small ceremony--largely due to current family illness. The ceremony will be in early August, in the afternoon, and followed by a small dinner. I had originally planned to get my first bespoke suit for our wedding, but that obviously became infeasible due to covid. Now, I'm scrambling to find something off the rack or that can be made to measure in the next five weeks.

I think what I want is a blue (likely navy) double-breasted (6x2 or 4x2) suit. I am also open to other suggestions!

I tried Suitsupply but it wasn't quite right. Lapels were a bit too bellied and wide, and I was between sizes.

I am essentially looking for brand/tailoring house recommendations. Price range is $500 to ~$2,500. I'm a 42L, and many RTW brands appear to not have long sizes. Drake's had a beautiful DB suit this season, but again there were no long sizes. I am looking at things like Spier&Mackay, Ring Jacket, and Huntsman.

Any suggestions or help pointing me in the right direction are greatly, greatly appreciated.

Five weeks really isn’t enough time for proper made to measure and given the schedule, I would most certainly avoid anything online.

Where do you live?

you should have plenty of options near you. Have you tried Saks or Ermenegildo Zegna at Copley Place? They should have some really nice offerings in your price range and be able to do the alterations and finishes in plenty of time.

I would be wary of anyone claiming they can do made to measure with a 5 week turn around.
