Maybe you are being conditioned, or maybe you are not shopping in the right places. I find that some boutiques have consistently interesting things. Alan Bilzerian, for example, carries some amazing stuff, imo. The Krone's + Kin jacket I got there just a week or so ago is pretty cool, for example. As well as the inserts I mentioned elsewhere, the shoulder and neckline construction is pretty amazing. And I just got a sample from the upcoming Engineered Garments line - a henley with inside chest pockets. On just a packet pocket, one a buttoned pocket so that the button shows on the outside. Super long cuffs. Of course, it helps that it is dyed an incredibly deep chestnut/chocolate color by Jay Allen - a one of a kind piece. Okay, so you can't actually buy that, but there are plenty on interesting pieces out there if you are willing to look.
