I searched and found nothing.

mods can move this if i suck at searching, accept my apology in advance

my query:

I am still trying to find a suit for my wedding, my budget is limited. EXTREMELY LIMITED. I had planned on spending about 1-150-$ on seperates at H&M but ...

I am still not 100%

are the regular suits much different than the 'designer collection'? I called all three of the H&M's in St Louis and they said they carried suits, but not the 'designer collection' suits which the Chicago store carries. I looked online, and saw nothing really about suits... or a designer collection.
The lack of information on their website is nerve racking.

I know i missed out on Shipley&Halmos on gilt, but does anyone have any suggestions of decent or atelast tailorable suits (jacket + slacks) I could get for about 1-200$ a piece?

I am a 36R (which has proven impossible to find in local department stores ) and I need something that is available in sizes to fit both myself and groomsmen (smallest = me, largest = 42R). I would like something that fits slimmer, and beyond that I don't know too much about fabrics, or other details. I just want something sharp.

I suppose we could rent, but I had planned on the suits being my gift to my groomsmen.


I am a total noob in terms of suits and suiting. any and all help is appreciated.
