Default looking for a suit

OK, the time has come for my senior prom. I have decided to stray from the traditional tux renting, in favor of buying a suit for 2 reasons, A: to stray from the norm, and B: i have absolutely no suits and now'* the perfect time to buy one. I have decided because of my individuality obsession, I am trying to find a 3 piece pinstriped "zoot suit". All I need is the three pieces, pants, vest, jacket. I don't need a shirt, shoes, or tie. During my intense search, I've ran across many clothing stores in my area, absolutely none of which can help me, therefore I've decided that the internet is going to be my best resource, and I was wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a website that may be able to help me. I am a high school student, so I'm not looking to spend $500 or anything, but something more in the $100 range. Any help is appreciated.

don't buy something to outlandish. you may need it again when applying for a good job

but the suit is a good idea as far as not looking like all other guys in tuxes that night.

Yes I have, and I will continue to periodically check, and I'm not going for the pimp look, all I want is a simple black with white stripes. :P

EDIT, just noticed the face, thanks .

OMG...is that a "Zoot Suit"????

If you know your sizes, I am sure you can build one up with Ebay stores.
