probably prohibitively expensive for the type of stuff you have.

picture one of those flying squirrels ... with weblike wing under the arms
if a suit jacket has low armholes, when you raise your arms, there will be a winglike flap between the sleeve and the body of the jacket
(the majority of the mass produced jackets you find will have low armholes .. because they are made to fit as many different bodytypes as possible off the rack aka fat people or people who used to play sports and now they just have a really stocky torso and big arms)
a higher armhole allows for smoother movement of the arms and will not give you the flying squirrel wings

it's not that I'm against spending; i just don't like spending when I'm not confident in my purchase and I'm really style-stupid right now.

just don't do the thing where you spend money trying to save money and just end up spending more. it's very easy to get to that point.

Lol not to worry; I already made that mistake 2 years ago when I needed a new suit for job interviews. Trying not to make it again.

Take imola and go to BB, suit supply, and wherever else around nyc and find a suit that fits you
You were willing to buy the bb suit so set that as your budget and go
