Suit emergency

This is silly, but apparently I need a suit for a few meetings in about two weeks. I have not worn a suit for a "few years" (like a decade) when I was managing a book on the sell side. Since then, I have lost a bit of weight (15-20 lbs) and the suits are rather worn.
(1) Since this is a relatively short order, where should I go? Web? Stupid shops like Brooks Brothers?
(2) Can anyone recommend a tailor in the NYC that is any good?
(3) Any other tips or ideas are welcome.

PS. Just discovered that I don't have a single presentable tie either, WTF...

faceslappingcompilation, what's your opinion? Comment below:

i've used this tailor more than a few times for a variety of items, and i found her to be excellent, fast, and well priced. https://www.yelp.com/biz/best-stitch-tailoring-new-york

I'd suggest going to Macy's on 34th street and goto the MensStore (on like the 5th floor?). They have a large variety of brands and cuts, and i'm sure they have a Memorial Day sale going on right now.

just google it...you're welcome

Thanks! What should I expect to pay for a decent suit these days?

I have a friend who lives in the country, and it's supposed to be an hour from 42nd Street. A lie! The only thing that's an hour from 42nd Street is 43rd Street!

Go to Suit Supply in NYC and you'll be in and out the same day with tailoring done in-house. It'll look good. Should have a strong selection of ties to pick from as a last minute buy.
Good call, I owe you a beer (or any alcoholic beverage of your chource)! The selection is nice and the prices are reasonable.

You can also look at Charles Tyrwhitt, OK English suits, usually a better shape than American style suits. It all depends on the impression you want to make, some people can spot a cheap suit even if altered a mile away.
