|DareDragoon||This looked like a good deal at first but buyer beware. Looking at the details these are poly/rayon suits. These types of suits are very cheap, uncomfortable and get wrinkled/go bad very quickly. Best to spend the extra money on one with better material.|

UPS decided to leave my package at the front door of my apartment building in a heavily pedestrian city. Oh and it was raining. Needless to say my package was nowhere to be found when I got home. Called UPS and they told me to call Macy's and ask them to open up the issue. I called Macy's and they refunded me...
I hate UPS now, but that's cool of Macy's.

Should you buy cheap online?
Also, many online say FIT is much more important than BRAND NAME and usually outweighs PRICE, maybe even up to $500-600 out the door.
GO to the store, tell the salesman what you can afford, make sure it is (worsted all season) wool, pick out a color, and try it on. At places like Macy's, the salesperson can tell you what your maximum discount will be and will be able to put in all discount codes without you bringing in coupons. Do this (with several suits) until you have a suit on such that:
The suit's shoulders don't go beyond the end of your shoulders and don't look all padded up, the back of the suit doesn't wrinkle up at your upper back area in line with your shoulders and behind your neck, the bottom of the suit more or less lines up with your knuckles when your hands are down relaxed at the sides, the bottom back of the suit jacket lays flat over and pretty much covers your butt and the slits (one or two, its up to you) stay more or less closed back there, your closed fist fits slightly snug when you reach in under the suit at the bottom of the lapel, the lapels don't look overly wide, and the suit jacket gives you a slightly hour glass look making you look thinner at the waist than elsewhere. Choose a two button or three button suit - two is likely to be more flattering on you. This is more or less a modern fit (a more trendy, edgy extra slim look is another story). Get as close as you can to this kind of a fit. As for the pants, stay with no cuffs if you are on the short side, and expect the pants to have a waist size 6 less than the jacket size if you don't buy separates. Most suits can be let out or in by an inch or two by a tailor. Also,get one thats not finished at the bottom and you don't have to worry about inseam length (and see what follows about tailoring in any case).
Don't buy by brand, buy by fit in your price range. Then, take it to a good reputable tailor in your area. Ask him how much it will cost to make it fit even better along with finishing the bottom of the trousers, but first ask him if it is worth it. Tell him you will bring it back to the store and get another one and bring it to him if he doesn't think he can make it fit you well.
If you follow this advice, you might end up with a really nice looking suit for under $200. Just don't expect it to last for years if you are going to wear it every day. And don't get it dry cleaned too much. Most suits (under $500 for sure, even on sale) are fused - that means glued and dry cleaning isn't kind to glued suits. Just get it pressed and only dry cleaned if it really needs it.
In my humble opinion.
