The Best Affordable Suits for Weddings and Wear to Buy Them
Buying a suit or a tux for a wedding can be an intimidating endeavor for many reasons (especially if you're the one walking down the aisle). The average price of a suit is very much one of them. Your average suit rings up around the $400 mark, and many are pricier. Fortunately, the world of affordable men's suits is a vast one (in this case affordable means anything below the average, and especially anything around the $150 range). Looking your best does not and should not require half a paycheck or more. There are plenty of options (many of which lean into our favorite suiting trends) out there that will have you looking great at a budget-friendly rate.

Suiting doesn't need to be flashy or complicated. Sometimes the best suit is the simplest one, like this charcoal standard from Moss. It's affordable but not cheaply made, it looks good, and it's available in slim, tailored, and regular fits. It's the suit for everybody, and the suit's price matches that ethos.
Where to Buy Affordable Suits
If you're looking to browse a solid selection of affordable suits, look no further than these retail hubs. From department store standbys to specialty designers who cut good suits that won't break the bank, these are the best places to buy suits under $500.
Suitshop's whole ethos is selling suits for the price you'd usually pay to rent them. For a great price (often under $300) you can get a great suit for a great price. Their sizing ranges are inclusive and while they aren't the place to go for extensive customizations or high-fashion looks, they've got classic suiting down to a science and won't let you down.
Saks Off 5th
Walking into a Saks 5th Avenue (or even just browsing their website) can be an intimidating endeavor for anyone looking for a simple, affordable wedding suit. Fortunately, their sister store Saks Off 5th won't give your bank statement a panic attack. They have a great selection of suits from brands like Original Penguin and Michael Kors for as little as $150, and they're constantly stockingnew options.
Hawes & Curtis
If you're looking for a great suit under $500, and maybe even one influenced by classic British tailoring, Hawes & Curtis are the place to go. They draw from menswear's highbrow history with rich textiles, great patterns, and stylish sportcoats, most of which look like they'd cost twice what you paid for them.
Shop Vintage with eBay
Want to get a designer suit for a fraction of the price? eBay is the place to go. The vintage suiting market is booming there, with pieces from classic designers like Ralph Lauren, Zegna, and Giorgio Armani available for prices you won't believe–you can easily find designer suits under $100. The one hitch here is that it's a bit more time-intensive than going to a traditional retailer–you may need a few days, or even a few weeks, to browse around and find the right suit for you. Still, it's worth it if it means at the end you get to walk into a wedding wearing vintage Armani that cost you less than a dinner date.
