I'm new here and would love to get your advice! I'm getting married next August and plan to buy a new, black suit for the occasion. My theory is why rent a tuxedo when I could buy a nice suit that will last a decade or more (assuming it continues to fit that long)? Here's the main caveat: I'm broke. I'll be graduating from college in May and it'll be all I can do to save money for this and for a honeymoon between now and August. I want a well-fitting suit (every other suit I've ever purchased has been complete and utter crap). I also would prefer a 3-piece suit (I've always wanted one). I've thought about this 3-piece suit from J. Crew: http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Browse/Mens...4524/74524.jsp I know J. Crew isn't the most popular around here, and nothing less than fully canvassed is looked down upon, but hey, I do what I can. Alternatively, I was thinking about buying a MTM suit from baronboutique.com. That would allow me to fulfill my dream of having functional button cuffs, and still pay less than what J. Crew would charge. And finally, I've considered Brooks Brothers' Suiting Essentials, which lets me choose the fabric I want and various other options. The sales associate at my local BB said to wait for the 25% sale in January, which I would probably do if I were to go this route. What would you guys suggest? Any other suits in my price range ($600 or less) that would fit me well?
