My chest is a tank! Tanks need suit jackets too!

FashionPhillyFilter: I have had a borderline-apocalyptic time trying to find a suit/sports jacket that fits in Philadelphia. I am a tall-but-not-notably so (6'0") dude who is built like a [big football guy term here], but with a smaller waist & bottom half to mis-match my enormous breastplate/shoulders. (My friend says "you are an inverse triangle"). Attendants at the stores I have gone to have been completely flummoxed by my proportions, which end up with either the jacket not fitting over my chest or there being a puffy cloud of fabric on the bottom. It's at the point where I'm getting recommendations for $1895 (low estimate I was given???)+ tailor-made jackets as the only solution for my build, which I am trying to avoid based on my budget (doctoral student on stipend). Surely there are... some stores that have tailorable off-the-rack things that might fit? Any suggestions as to stores that have fashionable, comfortable clothing for larger-built gentleman, especially in distance of Philadelphia? [more inside]

Looking for a specific pair of Roos

The most comfortable shoes I own (Kangaroos Tai Chi M) are starting to show their age. When I bought a replacement pair online a couple of years ago, I was disappointed that they use a different material/style which is more rigid and far less comfortable. Help me find the older style of Roos! [more inside]

Am I dressing dreadfully wrong?

I read this other AskMe that basically turned into a 50+ answer pile-on about wearing sneakers with a blazer, and now I'm worried that I too am doing something dreadfully wrong by mixing solid button-up shirts and dark wool trousers with big clompy Doctor Martens oxfords, a red nylon messenger bag and nylon windbreaker. Also, sometimes (okay, lots of times) I have a red bicycle helmet hanging from my bag. Could the hive mind explain exactly how dorky I look, and why? I'm not sure I care to change, but I would at least like to understand my options and their consequences, and make my self-presentation a deliberate choice instead of a clueless accident.

Men's Fashion: How to rock the blazer and jeans look?

My husband would like to do the blazer and jeans look occasionally so I would like to get him a blazer but I'm not sure whether that will suffice. He only wears non-sneaker shoes when he has to and his sneakers are definitely more athletic style than just casual shoe style. And I'm not sure that his jeans are nice enough to pull off this look. Help? [more inside]

Stockhausenify my Guy

I would like to buy a men's jacket like the one Stockhausen is wearing in this video. I'm not sure what the style is called. Any ideas on search terms and/or links to specific jackets for sale? The color is not particularly important -- it's all about the style.

My fiance needs an awesome suit for our wedding and beyond!

My fiance needs a suit for our wedding and beyond. Please help us sort through the myriad options. Special snowflake details: He wears a boys size 18 and won't really need to wear a suit after the special day but will be transitioning from a jeans and t-shirt job environment to a business casual one. Help us figure out if he should get an off the rack boys suit or an internet made to measure or if we should go somewhere in person for custom (we're in NYC). [more inside]

What men's clothing stores in the SF Bay area have salespeople who are helpful and willing to listen?

I need a fashion update. I'm in my mid forties. I know zero about fashion. Clothes bewilder me. Macy's and Nordstroms have nice clothes (I think?) but the salespeople are just kids and they don't give a rat's ass what you look like or whether they've actually helped you. In fact they're all laughing at me behind my back, obviously. Little bastards. Anyway, I need help from someone who knows what's what. [more inside]

Find me a great suit jacket, quick!

I'm tall (6'4"), I'm skinny (195lbs), and I need a black suit jacket before the end of the day today (I have the pants, but I'll buy new ones if need be). Obviously the time constraint eliminates any kind of custom garment. Basically, I need to know what stores I should be looking at in New York City -- I like a closer, more European fit, and I don't want to break the bank. First stop is H&M, but I'm not optimistic about what I'll find there. Other suggestions?
