If your budget is $60 or less, you should really just buy from Uniqlo
and call it a day. Tailor if necessary.
I thought OP's predicament was pretty clear. So far the one place where he has found sells clothes that fit him is American Eagle. He wants to do better and naturally the step up from American Eagle IS the likes of J Crew and Brooks Brothers, against which I, however, had to warn him because they don't exactly have his size. Also, not trying to be snarky but I thought it's funny you dismissed Brooks Brothers and J Crew from the grand scheme of things and then came right back to Uniqlo :)
I have a friend who's around OP's size and I know how hard it is for him to find clothes. We dug up the whole mall and went from American Eagle to Club Monaco, leaving empty-handed but for a few items he found at AE. If the OP does live on the East Coast, it's worth it to pay Uniqlo a trip. Otherwise he will just have to make do with what he can incidentally find or budget for tailoring.
