OzGirl:  im assuming yiur buying a suit 

DH rented a tux for the wedding and it cost $165. 

If he wanted to buy a suit or tux it would cost anywhere from $300 all the up to the thousands depending on the brand.

My husband wore a suit from JCrew that cost about $500 plus tailoring. Keep in mind that a good tailor can do wonders – a suit isn’t supposed to fit right off the rack.

What do you mean by “wedding suit?” I am in the U.S., but here it is common for the groom to wear a classic suit that he might also wear to the office or a job interview. If your husband doesn’t already own a suit, I might recommend purchasing something versatile in a classic grey/navy/charcoal that he can wear again.

OzGirl:  My OH ended up buying as we weren’t going to get a what we wanted with a rental. We went to loads of shops and ended up spending £710 on his made-to-measure 3 piece suit. With shoes, tie, cufflinks, shirt, and pocket square the whole outfit came to about £900/€1000. 

We found quite  a few suits for less than that though; there were plenty for around the £300 mark, but after we’d factored in alterations (he was between sizes with the shoulders and they’re the most expensive thing to alter) it would have been more, so as we have several weddings coming up now we thought we might as well invest in something decent he can wear again.

We were lucky and found a gem of a store at our local shopping centre, where they have very reasonably priced suits. We got FI’s for around $300 (just a two piece, no vest thing). Renting wouldn’t have been that much cheaper, and this way he actually gets a suit that fits him (he is super tall, so a rental would have looked ridiculous).

we wanted to get FI a general purpose suit (in fact he’s already worn it twice) and ended up with a really nice two piece suit, tailoring included for $350.

My husband got a custom made three-piece suit for somewhere in the range of $5500.  He wears it to job interviews and weddings that we go to, and I imagine he will wear it for many years to come.  So don’t feel bad about how much your budget is! I figure if he wears it for years it’s a good investment.

You can pay as much as you want for a suit, up to $6000+ for something like Tom Ford, or even twice that for some bespoke houses.   There is a law of diminishing returns at some point, generally around $1500 or so for most people.   You can get a very good suit in the range of $600-$800.  Charcoal or navy will serve your FI extremely well for many years to come. and are better communities to ask about these things, as they are entirely about men’s clothing, and many peeled there will be able to help you find what you are looking for.
