Brands with extra slim fit dress shirts

So, I have trouble finding dress shirts that fit properly. I'm not actually that skinny, but since I have a larger neck, most of the "slim fit" shirts are pretty billowy on me, especially in the arms. At The Bay I tried their "Black Brown" and "Ben Sherman" slim fit shirts but they are far from ideal. I own a few "Milano" extra slim shirts from Brooks Brothers and they are a lot closer, but $110 each or $279 for three is a bit more than I want to spend for my every day shirts.

I know that people will probably recommend custom shirts for the best fit, but I'd love to find a few brands of reasonable fitting off the rack shirts so that I don't always have to wait weeks when I want a new shirt.

So, can you guys think of any brands that have extra slim fit dress shirts? Brands that sell by the neck and arm measurements, not like BR that just has S, M, L or Suit Supply that seems to just sell by the neck measurement?

Someone told me to give Spier and Mackay a try.

I find the CK extreme slim fit shirts from Moores fit me perfect. They have another BOGO on now for them too. (I think normally 89.50 each)

Obviously, everyone's body types are a bit different, but I find that the Spier & Mackay slim fits work for me. They have their true (not vanity) measurements on their site.

Still $55 per shirt after the discounts. Is there any decent slim fits that is priced at around $30-35 (no CK please since everyone said they drink after one wash)?

Express has different cuts of slim fit shirts and go for your price range when they go on sale, which happens quite frequently.

Are they non-iron? Also, I've noticed that they only have solid color shirts.

BR shirts go on sale all the time. I've gotten them for as low as $20 each. They are the best value for slim fitting every-day no-iron dress shirts.

Express shirt quality sucks.

BR def has the best inexpensive slim-fit non-iron shirts.

I'd go for Express but be sure to buy comfortable fitting because once you keep washing and ironing, it gets tight lol.
