Opinions On How to Improve My Style

I'm obviously new to the forum as this is my first post, I stubbled on to this site and decided to get some opinions on one of my suits because I am sick and tired of writing mid-term papers haha.

I go to a small private college in Kansas so right now I don't have a huge collection of suits and what not. Most of the time when I wear a suit it is to a formal meeting at my fraternity or an event on campus that requires wearing a suit. I've never really spent a bunch of money on clothes because I never really cared until I started seeing some of the amazing stuff on this site! I know most of the stuff I have now is not the highest quality but I try to make it look good.

So enough with all the bs I'll get to the pictures now, but I have to warn you they are not the best pictures because all I have is my iPhone and the camera sucks on it.

This is the suit I wear most often because I have a lot of shirts and ties that look alright with it. The suit is a Ralph Lauren green label or "Lauren" brand. Yes I have already read about the hatred for this brand on the forum but I didn't know any better when I bought it. The shirt I'm wearing in the first picture is Tommy Hilfiger and the tie is Geoffrey Beene

And here is a close up of it (just trying to make the best of my camera situation for now).

This next combo is what I usually wear to events on campus that require wearing a suit such as meeting alumni or representing my fraternity. The shirt is Kenneth Cole and the tie is Perry Ellis.

And the close up.

And just because I seemed to already be putting everything on I decided to show something I would wear to less formal event like a date party with a sorority. Tragically though the top button on the jacket came off so I need to have it sewn back on and my pants could use a good ironing. Also I didn't notice my sleeve sticking out until I uploaded this photo haha.

Please don't be afraid to be brutally honest with me. I know what I have now isn't the best so I wouldn't be against anyone pointing me in the right direction as to where to shop. I could use all the help I can get haha. Thanks in advance for any knowledge you can pass on to me.
