Looking for Ralph Lauren Custom Fit Shirt ALTERNATIVE

Hi All,
I'm looking for an alternative to the Custom Fit Oxford PRL shirts. I live in the UK and have tried the Fully Fitted TM Lewins so far but I find them to be too baggy around the waist when tucked into jeans, especially at the back where it just looks untidy. The Ralph Lauren custom fit oxford seems to fit perfectly for my very narrow body shape. So basically I'm looking for a very tailored/fitted/narrow shirt that will look good when tucked into jeans / trousers. Any help is greatly appreciated as it's driving me crazy! Many many thanks, jTL

Charles Tyrwhitt is not bad for a low/medium priced shirt.

Maybe Brooks Brothers slim fit or super slim fit?

^That thread is much too long to be of any use.

Here's a quick list of some slim fitting shirts that I've tried:

average price:
brooks brothers
charles tyrwhitt
banana republic
zara

more expensive:
ralph lauren black label (very fitted, probably my favorite)
thomas pink
hugo boss slim/red label
paul smith
theory
barba napoli
finamore

I have no idea which ones you can/cannot get in the UK though

Also, if you're able to find shirts that are slightly too large through the waist at an affordable price, you can take them to a tailor/seamstress and have them slimmed down for £10-15.

Which fit the best? Which fit the worst? I too am always looking for fitted, slim cut dress shirt. Much to the chagrin of many members here, I've had the most luck at Express (quality aside)
