Intern in MBB/Big 4 Consulting Where should I get my suits?

So I start work in a few weeks and currently only have one suit that I can really use (dark navy blue joseph about). I was wondering where I should be getting my suits from given my industry. Obviously I don't want to drop $1500+ per suit because I don't have that cash and I'd look stupid I assume being an intern with that kind of suit, but also don't want a shitty $149 dollar suit you find online.

Any suggestions?

Was hoping Mens warehouse might have a sell or brooks brothers, also have seen the store suit supply thrown around.

Suit Supply is the best option. $400 for their base model (Napoli). Best all around color is navy blue, if you get two, get one in charcoal grey. After tax and tailoring it should come out to $500 a suit. It's pricey but it is significantly better than anything from Men's Warehouse, J A Bank, Macy's, etc.

Suit Supply does a very good job. The slightly higher price for better fit and materials is worth it in my opinion. These suits will last you for a while, so investing a little more makes sense.
