DO NOT GET A BLACK SUIT UNLESS YOU ARE AN UNDERTAKER OR MAITRE D'. No ifs, ands, or butts.

What you want is a good navy or gray suit that can be worn for multiple events. Change it up with shirts and ties (and no red, orange, yellow, black shirts.) Based on the dimensions given, it sounds like you wear a more modern fit suit without looking silly and get it properly tailored. You can see the suit style in this AT&T commercial:

Look in the mirror at Mark Wahlburg's pants - way too long. Patrick Stewart does it right, slim fit suit, narrow legs, perfect length. I can't pull it off but my son does.

Go to Brooks Brothers and look at the different suits they offer - expensive but worth it and they offer a number of fits.
Need to save a few bucks go to Jos A Bank - shop their sales when suits are 50% off - you can get a good suit at around $250. You can get something in the middle from Joseph Abboud at Men's Wearhouse - for $500-700 you are in an American made suit from Joe's own factory.

Happy Sartorial Hunting.

My old boss, probably the best dressed guy I know, used to say that the tailoring of a suit is more important than the price. A nice fit will make a less expensive suit look really good.

Absolutely true. But a cheap suit will wear out quicker than a better priced one.

You can't make up for the fact that good suit is canvassed and a cheap one is fused. They don't look the same - one has flat lapels (fused), while the other's lapels have a roll to them (canvassed). A fused suit is stiffer too, and just looks and feels cheap, IMHO.

Whatever you do just don't wear pleated pants and penny loafers.
