imho the suit doesn't matter as much as the tailor. for your first suit, i would recommend you do this. You can purchase a suit from mens warehouse for probably around 100 dollars. Then spend about 200 dollars (nyc price) for a tailor to fit it exactly to your body. You'll end up with a suit that looks amazing.
Me personally, I get either z zegna, hugo boss red label or theory suits. i think they have the perfect slim cut for my body (i'm 6'0 with a slim athletic build) I still get these suits tailored and afterwards, they fit like a glove.
As far as a tailor goes, I don't go with any of the inhouse tailors at the stores I buy my suits from. (They've disappointed me numerous times) Just yelp some good tailors in your neighborhood and try your luck. If you are in the nyc area, I can recommend you a great tailor.
good luck with your search

Tailors will make a cheap suit look better than an off the shelf luxury brand. Prepare for $2000 or so if you go that route, depending on fabric and who is doing the work.East bound and down, loaded up and truckin',

Find a tailor, and then go suit shopping anywhere that you can find a material, lapel style, color, and over all fit that you like.
I've bought a 180 dollar Calvin Klein 'white label' suit, got it tailored (they can do some ridiculous things if they are skilled), and it looks fantastic, perfect fitting to my body.
A professional tailor can make a 'cheap/shitty/nondesigner' suit look fantastic, it's truly the fit that matters above all in suiting up!ecommerce focussed internetpreneur - Hidden Content

I don't wear suits on a daily basis so I don't have a whole lot of suits. But when I do, I have a tailor. I find that Boss and Tombolni fit me well and once he takes it in and does his magic, it looks good.

For nice dress shirt, I go as high as $60, the majority of my shirts are cost around 30 bucks. Slacks, around $40. I shop around and usually pick up stuff when it's on sale to save a few bucks, only those times that I see a shirt I must have do I splurge, couple hundred bucks sometimes. Suits??? I get some decent ones at Macy's or JCPenney. Picked one up last month at Nordstrom for $800. :\ I look like a boss though. And I hardly wear a full blown suit so it's not too bad.2007 Tundra RCSB | 504HP

Where I work (Kohls) I picked up a nice tight fitting Croft and Barrow dress shirt. and a Billy London Jacket and Pants. (Jacket $25, Pants $30 I call it a deal) Some Guess shoes.
Im happy with it. As I get more money or need a better suit, ill purchase a better one.
