    I'm going to move your thread to the new Menswear Advice forum, where it will have more visibility, and where other members can benefit from your question.

    Is expensive + high quality + ready-to-wear your criteria? If so, Brooks Bros is pretty moderately priced. I can easily find you Kiton or Atolini for $6K+. If you want to go bespoke, we could go to Huntsman, which have high prices, even for the Row, and get you a suit for $10K+.

    If you want to go trendier, you can opt for Tom Ford.

    Not sure if this is really where you want to go.

    Aren't Oxxford suits generally regarded as the best-made ready-to-wear suits in America, if not the world? Prices start around $4K. I have heard the workmanship on them is unsurpassed, even by top bespoke tailors. However, some claim the styling is somewhat stodgy.

    I'll buy a Brooks Brothers suit, then sell it to you for $10,000. You get your expensive suit, and i get $8,000 for my troubles. Deal?

    I personally love Oxxford suits, and find their styling to be both classy and just a smidge flashy. You definitely stand out in one.

    I like Kiton, but really only their summery stuff. They can be super flashy and over the top though.

    Canali are a solid choice, and you'll get a good value for what you purchase. Very traditional, if that's what you're looking for.

    If you go with BB go with the MTM not off the rack and when and if you go MTM go with the GF model. I went with it and I am happy. It will cost you more than the OTR BB suit which is around 1200.00 however the suit should last you many years.
