Express has awesome three piece suit sets in that color.  I’m not sure how much they cost.

my Fiance got an amazing suit in that color from macy’s. i think it was made by calvin klein. it was part of their slim fit collection… it fits him like a dream. it also comes with a gray vest that matches. macy’s always has amazing sales and specials. you just have to keep your eye on the item you want and clip coupons!

My husband is 6’3 and doesn’t wear big and tall–so I think 6’4 would probably be in the regular section as well–but I suppose that depends a bit on what they weigh.  My husband is a triathlete so he’s long and lean–if your GMs are bigger, the big and tall might work better for them–especially as far as the jackets fitting in the shoulders.

@spoonoutmyheart: They will almost certainly need to try Long/Tall sizes. Generally speaking, 6’4” individuals should be in the Long sizes if they want sleeves to hit them correctly and the button stance to be proportionate to their torso. From various popular suit/jacket sellers:

Long Sizes – Suiting
Recommended for men 6’0″-6’3″. Body length is 1¼” longer and sleeve length is 1″ longer than the standard sizes above.

Tall
Tall describes a body 6’1″ − 6’3″ tall, with a long torso or sleeve length. Body length of shirts is 2″ longer than Regular. Coat sleeve and body length is 1-1/2″ longer.

And just to draw a distinction: there are Big & Tall sizes and there are Tall (or Long when referring to jackets) sizes. If you’re an athletic, 6’3” triathlete like Mr. MDPHD, you can’t wear Big & Tall sizes because they are very blousy and poorly fitting.  Tall sizes (see Gap, JCrew, Banana, etc.) simply elongate the sleeves and body of the shirts/jackets so that the you can keep the slimmer fit, but with correctly proportioned sleeves, pockets, length, etc. My brother is 6’3” and must endure this pain in the neck (finding places that offer Tall sizes as opposed to Big and Tall sizes.)

I’ve been dealing with the same problem. Right now I’m leaning towards these suits from Men’s Warehouse. It will come out to under $200 with tax.
