I'm in my 40s, and I would love to have a "goto" place to buy my every day clothes. I have no idea where that place should be.

I moved beyond ironic t-shirts, but I still look relatively young (30s). My style is very simple. In the summer I generally wear jeans or kakis with a t-shirt. In the winter jeans or kakis with a pull over long sleeve shirt. I guess I'd call the style simple and classic (though it could also be called boring). But regardless, I know exactly how I like to dress, and what I believe looks best on me.
Shouldn't be difficult to find those clothes, but I live in a small city, where the only clothing stores are generic department stores or old navy / the gap / american eagle. In a pinch I can find what I need at old navy / the gap / american eagle, but I find the clothes are cheaply made, a lot of it has the brand prominently displayed, and in all honesty I don't feel comfortable as a 40 year old man shopping among teenagers.
So I'm guessing my best bet would be buying clothes online, but i've never done that. Should I use Amazon? Is American Apparel a good option? I'm talking pants/jeans, T-Shirts and Pull Overs. Decently made, and decently priced. I just have no idea. Any suggestions on where I could start buying my these staples of my wardrobe would be appreciated.
