Hey Everyone!

Recent lurker and new member here! I'm on the hunt for a suit for my wedding. I've read this forum up and down, also read the sf101, related links and threads. I have a good idea what I'm looking for, but I'm having some trouble determining the quality of suits online.

Take Joseph Abboud for instance-- I tried on a 2-piece at Bloomingdale's, the jacket fit me very well. SF research tells me Joseph Abboud is half canvas. The Bloomingdale's Joseph Abboud suit is made in USA and priced at $795.

I found what looks to be a very similar, if not the same, Joseph Abboud suit on Amazon for $200. Also made in USA.
(http://www.amazon.com/Joseph-Abboud-Button-Medium-Regular/dp/B007YY0LH2/ref=sr_1_7?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1363701382&sr=1-7) Can I expect the same quality as the one I found at the B&M shop? Is there anyway I can tell if these suits are from the same line?

While I'm posting here, does anyone have any suggestions for a sub $500 half/full canvas charcoal/dark grey suit?
I range in size from 40R-44R depending on the suit manufacture's marketing propaganda (read: classic, tailored, fitted).

Thanks in advance!

Have you try 'the wizard of ash'? They are perhaps the cheapest full canvassed suit that is well within your budget. Also Benjamin Sartorial is also a good choice. Both are online retailers.
