Hey got a wedding at the end of the year to attend. Any fashion designers or tailors can recommend a good RTW brand for suiting? My budget is probably anything under $1.5k. I don't mind buying online either as I know my own measurements and know a little about tailoring myself.
It's gonna be a pretty casual wedding, but of course a suit is still required.
Outfit wise, I'm thinking of going a navy 3 roll 2 suit. Light blue shirt, dark brown knit tie (or is this too casual?) and black shoes. Let me know what you think?

I own many brands but my favorite is Hart Schaffner and Marx
Get the Gold Trumpeter or ask for the best options. You will see difference when u ask. Materials and fit are crucial here for long lasting suit. Some of mine are 20yrs old and look brand new and in style because I picked timeless looks.
NEVER wear brown with navy it is a cardinal sin corporate America (business guys will go nuts, they don't care what u saw in magazine). Rather wear oxblood or cordovan shoes with a matching belt preferably with gold buckle. I have a reversible one here for suits.
Go with navy or navy and light blue pinstripe. Match light blue shirt to pinstripe and then get a tie that pops color. Think red, yellow, orange with compliments of navy or light blue to tie it together (brooks brothers or jos a banks are good stores for top tier ties). For the cold out door weather. Think about v neck sleeveless sweater vest or what I would do is get out my suit overcoat. Many good options at affordable prices. I like all black here for overcoat (some go camel hair -gets dirty, some gray herringbone-not my thing) a nice scarf and gloves.
Since it is end of year I would stay to darker colors for cold weather. Classy dress up look is a safe and conservative but keep it age appropriate look. Don't forget to get hair cut nicely, polish shoes, good cologne, and you will rock that wedding.
Ps former suit salesman... Many other looks (gray etc...) but that was your gut so go with it!0
