    I need more details to answer that question. What's your price range? Do you want RTW or MTM clothes? Are you an abnormal size? There are lots of great places to get clothes, but your personal needs will dictate what the best option is for you.

    I think you are going about this completely wrong. There are no shortage of clothes available online. You need to figure out what fits you, what looks good on you, and who makes what you are looking for. Then buy that.

    The point is, there are literally thousands of such sites--just knowing a place to buy a blazer or whatever is not very helpful. Figure out what you want and you will know from where to buy it.

    No such thing as "a normal size."




    You can not figure out "what fits you" buy looking at web sites.



    Forget about websites for now. Go to several men's shops in your area and try on as many styles as you can. I highly recommend your first purchases in local shops, not on line. Find a good local tailor to make adjustments and you will look great.

    What is "normal" in terms of fit? Alteration tailors would not exist if we were all normal.

    Why not try a bricks and mortar shop and buy some to assess all these things and when you have that experience try the net - if you think that would be better.

    It was very easy to discover Jos. A. Bank and Brooks Brothers in Providence. There surely are other solid options within driving distance, depending on where in Rhode Island. Double-breasted jackets require extra attention to fit, yet another reason to try on first in person.
