Where should I go shopping for a suit with a good amount of waist suppression?

I really want a light grey two button. I am probably a 40-41 (5'8'' 175#, muscular),
but with 32-33 waist. My other suits are 3 buttons and awful, but might be fixable if I can
bring the sides in and not get suckered into having the sleeves too long. I hate the way they
are cut.

I'd like to be at $300 ish and spending the rest on the tailoring.

I saw the valentinos on ehaberdasher...that looks like a really good deal. Other brands/online stores/specific brands at department stores I should try?

Are my black AE wingtips ok with light grey, or would i be happier with dark brown?
I'm not opposed to springing for another pair of shoes.

Intended use are two weddings I need to attend this summer.
