I love vintage Stanley planes. But, I would not have anything they are making today.

If buying new planes, I agree with Ken. Veratas or Lie Nielsen is the way to go.

If you don’t mind a little work to rehab, watch for some older Stanley/Bailey planes. My suggestions for a good start are: #7 or #8 joiner, #5 jack, #202 or #220 block plane
