Default where do I get an outfit?

I'm a male performer and I do corporate shows. I need a really stylish outfit that tells the audience I'm a star! I'm thinking like Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, etc. Where on earth do you look to find stuff that doesn't look just like everything else out there?

There's gotta be a place or person out there that makes really fancy, stylish stuff for guys, right? I looked at all the formal stuff and it's drab business suits. I need it to look like Michael Jackson went to a business meeting lol

Got any suggestions?

You might search on ballroom dance costumes - especially in the latin category, they make some flashy stuff for guys. At least it will give you some pictures to take to a costumer, even if nothing there is exactly right.

You might also contact a costume designer - they can be found through university theatre departments, medium sized regional theatres, and sometimes through the mom who sews at your local high schools, but if you want sharp tailoring you probably want a pro.
