'Slim-fit' doesn't fit. Where else should I shop for shirts?

For years, I've bought my favorite work and casual shirts at Banana Republic. I like their styles, which are not too conservative, but not too out-there either. This year, they suddenly stopped carrying normal cut shirts. Instead, every single shirt in the store is 'slim fit', which doesn't fit me at all. What other clothing stores (in NY) should I visit to find nice shirts but a normal fit? I checked out Gap, but they have the same problem as BR, and only sell 'slim fit' shirts now. I'm not interested in 'fashion designer' clothes, so Bloomingdale's is out. What other stores should I check out that have a similar style as BR?

How to dress a not-thin man

I'm 5'10", around 205 lbs. Whenever I try on clothes, whether they're shirts or jeans, they always end up looking baggy or bunchy, and nothing ever fits correctly. Where can I find clothes that fit better, and what styles would look best? [more inside]

Avoiding wrinkled shirts!

ClothingFilter: When dressing casually, I often wear button-down shirts out, rather than tucked in. The problem is that the moment you sit down, the bottom third of the shirt becomes a wrinkled mess, and looks terrible. Assuming I'm not going to remain standing forever, is there a particular brand, type, or material of shirt that avoids this problem?
