I've looked at Suffolk when I was in Dover in person looking for the bridle. They are indian-made, stiff, and not smooth on touch (you can tell the leather is junk).
Angel, you are in MD, right? I'd suggest to go to Dover in person (there are 2 in area) - sometime they have amazing in-store close-outs on bridles, or go to Gayers Saddlery. While the Gayers hm-hm is a funny place to deal with they have very nice deals as well. I got my european-made dressage bridle there for I believe $70, brand new, nice leather, and even my instructor commented on how nice it is.
