I need new clothes, and I would like, for once, clothes that look good. Significant bonus points if they signal modesty and I can do some physical work in them.

I'm a man in possession of a medium build body with a prominent ass, and I'd like to dress more flatteringly. The catch is that my style tends strongly towards working clothes, and I'm a big fan of sturdily constructed, durable clothes. Think oiled cotton and plaid button-downs. With respect to cut, however, I'd like to show off the goods a bit more and stop owning only shirts that blouse when tucked in. I'm not fashionably rail thin, given my love affair with potatoes and beer, but I neither have a gut. Basically, I want outfits suitable for seducing Walt Whitman.
What brands and search terms should I use in finding my dream wardrobe? Do you have any relevant advice I haven't specified? I can spend some money, but I certainly can't afford (or do myself) the work to alter everything I wear.
