I don't know your budget, but based on where you've looked so far, I suggest you check out Shop The Finest. Ian, the owner, has a warehouse in Santa Monica. His inventory tend toward the higher end but if it's in your budget, you have a good chance of finding what you want. Also, check out Ralph Lauren in Beverly Hills.
I wouldn't.
Your unique physique may require the help of an experience custom shirtmaker to produce a shirt that address some of these issues. This is not to take anything away from Proper Cloth, as I have several shirts from them and have been quite happy with the results. However, an experienced custom shirtmaker may be able do things that a shirt production line - even one that takes custom measurements like Proper Cloth - cannot do, to deal with some of the fit idiosyncrasies...
A couple of suggestions. Go back to standard button setup and maybe increase your yoke by about 1/2" or so. Something is causing the pulling in the upper area and if it's not the chest or shoulders (which look fine) it could be the yoke. Hard to tell without pictures of the back or seeing shirt in person.
That GMTO is the bomb! If I weren't looking for something other than a wingtip I would have been all over that one.
Sammy, the owner of Ascot Shoes is very easy to work with and he makes sure all of the details and your choices are correct before ordering, including picking the right size. The price I quoted is with VAT removed. Now that you mention it, I should get a belt to go with these new shoes.
Best to see in person. I have a pair of EG Westminster in Dark Oak and not really much of a red shade to its finish. The Vass Oxblood.....awesome. I just ordered a MTO pair in oxblood and bordeaux because I was looking for something with a hint of red tone. It was between that and burgundy. For under $1000 Vass MTO is very hard to beat. I'm getting mine through Ascot Shoes over in the UK. The MTO cost ranges from GBP 550-590 which works out to approximately $800-860...
Fit the shoulder first. Also, usually easier to size down than to size up.
Edward Green Tewkesbury.
Damn! These are a steal. Half size too small for me.
