I got mine from JCrew but I got something on the cheaper end; I was going to get it altered since I was facing the same issue which was like $150.

Since you have an athletic build just buy whatever fits your shoulders perfectly and get a tailor that can alter the rest. The suit ends up looking triple what you payed for it imo. I also brought my dress shirts and they cut me a nice deal, they're usually family owned and cool about it.

But yeah you won't find anything off the rack that will look flattering, whatever fits you nice in the shoulders will usually end up being super baggy everywhere else.

I wear Suitsupply. I'm not super jacked by any means, but I'm short with a broad chest/shoulders, so I have the same trouble with finding clothes. Just get the size that fits your chest/shoulders, and if the jacket is too long, get the short size (e.g., if you wear a 40, get a 40S). Suitsupply will also tailor your suit for free if you buy from them, so they can fix any other issues you have with the fit. Plus, the nice thing about Suitsupply is that they never have sales; counterintuitive, I know, but it means you never have to worry that you might not be getting the best price.

I agree I'm short and broad and they gave me a 42s it's a bit tight sometimes actually but generally solid and it's molded a bit to my body. That's being said i feel some kind of a misconception because I got a suit tjere once and got charged like $60-80 in alterations for the pant. I said fuck it and got two anyway because I really needed em but suitsupply is known to oversell alterations I thought.What do you mean by free tailoring -- I believe indochino is genuinely free tailoring / alterations (cost built in to suit)

Another nice thing about SuitSupply suits is that they are half-canvassed instead of fused. Over time, this should mend to your body shape a bit

When it comes to off-the-rack suits, Cesare Attolini is by far my favorite brand. They just fit my body incredibly well, minimal tailoring needed, and I really love the cut and style. But you don't need to buy $5k suits to look good - hell, even suitsupply works well, I have a couple of those from their MTM program. 

In the end, it comes down to finding the brand or tailor that makes the best suits for you. I've lost count of how many brands I've tried, but again and again, some brands just make suits that fit me well.
