A good suit is a staple of being a man, and as long as the fit is right you’re bound to look like royalty. While some suits can run you upwards of $4,000, others can keep you looking dapper while settling in around $200. While we all strive to have that flawless Armani three piece in the closet, there is no shame in taking baby steps to get there. So to help you climb your way up the ladder while looking fresh and clean at each step, here are the best suits you can buy right now, no matter what your budget is.
Suits for Every Budget: $200 or Less
Combatant Gentlemen will not only give you a damn good suit for a more than reasonable price, but they carry enough options that you can freshen your entire suit collection for less than the price of one brand name designer suit.

The Swedish brand has found its way into the Manhattan skyline, and it should definitely find its way into your closet. H&M may be a goto spot for your cheap casual tee and basic hoodie, but they do suiting damn well too. Best of all, you can typically find a good H&M promo code, or you can sign up for their mailing list and save an extra 20%.
Asos is a great stop for pretty much anything. It’s stylish, it’s priced to sell, and I have to say their customer service is impeccable if there should be a shipping problem from the UK to the US. Plus, Asos recently improved their suit fit, so now these aggressively priced pieces of sartorial art are just that much better.
Suits for Every Budget: $200 – $500
We love SuitSupply, and not just for the beautiful women in their advertising, but because they know how to cut a suit that looks as good in the office as it does at happy hour. Staying true to their European style and using excellent quality fabrics, you’re going to be blown away when you realize a suit less than $400 can look and feel so good.

While these suits technically come in just over $500, you can use promo code “Shoppingtime” to take 20% off your total, bringing these Japanese Chambray Ludlow suits down to a steal of a price.

Bonobos: The Foundation
Bonobos’ Foundation line is their essential suiting line. Clean, minimalistic, with a price tag that keeps you smiling. It’s an upgraded suit from your H&M genre without going overboard. And of course, like all things Bonobos, the fit is dead on.
Suits for Every Budget: $500 – $1,000
As much as we like SuitSupply’s less expensive suits, we love their higher end collections. Still incredibly priced for the quality, SuitSupply will give your closet the sophisticated attitude it needs. These suits conduct meetings and pick up women, which is exactly what your suit is supposed to do.
Custom suits for under $1,000? Yes, please. The $2,000 feel for less than half the price is one of the many reasons Imparali is one of our favorite suiting companies. They have more options than you can wrap your head around, and the ability to build you a custom shirt to go with it.
Suits for Every Budget: $1,000+
As much as I’ll be the first person to protest against wearing black suits 9 times out of 10, every man needs to have one in their closet. So, why not make that one black suit a Gucci one? If you’ve hit this point of the budget, odds are you have your greys and blues covered. You will now be the best dressed man at the funeral.
Classically minimalistic from the waist tabs to the muted charcoal grey. This is a suit that means business, if you’re wearing it to happy hour be prepared to buy all the drinks, otherwise reserve it for the days you’re kicking ass in the boardroom. A suit like this demands respect and projects power.
The perfect color of blue that will work with all shades of brown shoes, and your black ones. Keep it minimal and throw on a crisp white shirt like this guy and you literally can’t go wrong.
For the big ballers and CEO’s of the group, we have the peak lapeled, high priced, high fashioned, luxuriousness of Huntsman. This suit tops our list at the price of $4,400, but it looks like a million bucks. The windowpane check is subtle while adding distinct detailing, the ticket pocket and waist tabs give it that unmistakably British Savile Row appeal, and the one button jacket keeps everything toned down perfectly. If you can afford it, this is the suit to end all suits.
