TM Lewin shirts tend to be around $50. Hugo Boss shirts are around $150 each. With TM Lewin, however, there are multi-buy deals and you can get 4 for $40. TM Lewin also do regular voucher code deals.
It's difficult to give advice without more information, like your precise chest and collar measurements. From my experience the OTR shirts which tailor in the most (i.e have the largest difference between the chest measurement and the waist measurement) are the TM Lewin Slim Fits. If you want the slimmest shirts (i.e. the shirts which have the smallest chest size for a given neck size) then Hugo Boss Extra Slim Fit is the slimmest I have found.
Hi and welcome to Styleforum The Brooks Brothers traditional fit is the largest I have found. They do an 18.5 inch neck which as a chest size of 63.5. They have a shop on Regent Street in London if you are in the south of the UK. Mr. Porter do sell some Brooks Brothers shirts, but they are over-priced and they don't sell the traditional fit. Another alternative is Hawes and Curtis. Their Large and Tall range has a 19 inch collar size, a chest of 61.4 and a waist of...
The same is true for some of the other large shirt makers. For example, TM Lewin Slim Fit shirts go up 2 inches for every 0.5 inch neck size, as does the Charles Tyrwhitt Classic Fit.
Thomas Pink Slim Fit shirts come in a 14.5 collar size and a 34 inch arm length. The UK retailers John Lewis and Marks and Spencer also sell shirts with a 14.5 inch collar and a 34 inch arm length.
Compared to the Charles Tyrwhitt Tailored fit, the TM Lewin fully fitted shirts are wider at the chest, but narrower at the waist. Thomas Pink slim fit is more expensive, but slimmer through the chest. You might want to try them. They have a sale on at the moment (at least in the UK).
From your measurements your waist size is larger than your chest size. Since Slim fit shirts tend to be more tapered and have a narrow waist, I think regular fit would be better for you. In addition, from your measurements your arm length is shorter than standard, given your neck size. That means you are unlikely to find an OTR shirt that fits perfectly.
Go for a cotton shirt. Poplin weaves are usually thinner than twill or herringbone, so should be better in the summer. I agree with Trompe Le Monde, Avoid any polyester. Many of the shirt retailers have a page telling you how to measure your shirts. Charles Tyrwhitt have a video on their website http://www.ctshirts.co.uk/How-to-measure-for-a-shirt?cnt=measure-for-a-shirt
The Charles Tyrwhitt Tailored Fit is Slimmer. For example, on a 16.5 inch neck CT Tailored Fit - 45.7 at the chest and 42.9 at the waist. BB ESF - 47.5 at the chest and 45 at the waist.

Junpos, for shirts your height and weight are less important than your neck size, arm length, chest size and waist size. Thomas Pink have a guide here http://www.thomaspink.com/HowToMeasure/content/fcp-content If you provide measurements then we may be able to give you more precise advice on shirts that fit well.
