Athletic Build and Suit/Tuxedo Fitting

I’m in the military and have an athletic build. I’ve been trying dress a little more sharp lately and have been wearing more suits, but it’s not something that I get to practice everyday when I have to wear a camouflage utility uniform. I usually like the 3 button suits, but have found that it’s hard to find suits (two or three button) that are designed for athletic builds (I have wide shoulders and a thin waist, which is very significantly different than the ‘average’ suit). I rarely find athletic cut suits, shopping at Men’s Wearhouse and Jos A Bank. I want to purchase a couple of tuxedos soon. Any tips on who makes athletic cut tuxedos, or how to find a slim fit that can be tailored right?

What should tall and muscular men be wearing?

I have read that tall men should avoid wearing horizontal stripes because the stripes make them look taller, but I have also read that muscular men should avoid wearing horizontal stripes because the stripes make them look wider. I have seen articles about what short men and men on the heavy side should wear, but what should men who are both muscular and tall be wearing? Is there any pattern to avoid?
