you buy a good suit it will last you years granted that you take care of it properly; dry cleaning no more than 5-6x per year. Depending on your budget I would say hit up Joseph Banks, great suits for a great price you can pick up 3 for a grand or work a deal of some sort, they always have sales. Express also makes quality suiting. If you want to step it up a bit get into a Varvatos, Ben Sherman, Hugo Boss or a CH (carolina Herrera) - Amazaing stuff for the price: great quality great fit. And last but definitely not least would be Brookes Bros. as some have mentioned although the age appropriateness will be more mature. Where do you work or plan on working?
keep in mind that a good fitting suit will always look better than a really expensive suit. However, almost always you pay more money for a better more tailored fit. So when shopping for a suit make sure the fit is perfect and you do not have to re-cut or tailor too much out of it.

For shirts, I wear Brooks Brothers. You can buy much more expensive off the rack, but not much better. They are reasonably priced on sale. I have to travel a lot, and showing up in a still tidy non-iron shirt looks a lot better than showing up in a wrinkled $200 shirt. Ditto for how you look after a long day. The only way you'll really beat that is a custom shirt with very high quality materials and a good press with little activity during your day.
For ties, I wear mostly Chaps. They are better made and better styled than most other stuff on the market, and they're dirt cheap and easy to find. You can pick a random Chaps tie and it will likely receive complements. You have to search through the entire table at Brooks Brothers to find a tie that will similarly attract a complement.
For suits, I have had Brooks Brothers (loved them, but I feel the quality has gone down recently, unless you really spend), Ralph Lauren (good staple suit and traveled well, but not my standby anymore), and Joseph A Banks (their top/executive suits, on super sale, are stylish and well priced). A few years ago I had custom suits made. They cost around or slightly more than a Jos A Banks would cost on sale. There simply is no substitute. I love every detail of them and they are all that I wear now.
