Oversized armholes everywhere!

I'm tall and thin, about 6'1'' and 165lbs.

After spending lots of time looking for slim fit shirts, I have found myself with another problem.

Every shirt I buy, even if it fits fairly well around the waist and chest, seems to have giant armholes causing tons of excess fabric! When I raise my arms to the side it looks like I'm a flying squirrel. I went to a tailor to try and take care of this but the sleeves ended up to short.

Has anybody had this problem and found a solution?
