If you're like me, you feel conflicted whenever you see one of the legion "I just graduated, now I need a suit, my budget is $500 what do I get?" threads. On the one hand, this person is making an effort to dress professionally. On the other hand, how many times can you rehash all the options for a suit at $500? We've got the Styleforum 101 articles, but they're light on brand information. Let's make this thread a reference for various options at or below $500, both RTW and MTM. Note that this is only the price of the suit itself. Most RTW suits will need to be tailored. Hemming the pants and sleeves will cost another $50 or so. If you need more complicated operations performed, your bill will be higher. Sales tax may be an additional cost, depending on where you live and how you buy. As people put up information on various brands (let's keep it minimal and not too editorial), I will update the OP.
