Question about wearing a suit and tie (regarding the shirt)

One of the reasons I don't like wearing a suit is because when I wear a suit and tie, I don't like the restrictive feeling of the tie and buttoned-up collar around my neck.

When getting fitted for a suit, what if I ask the clerk/tailor to purposefully fit me a shirt that is 2 neck sizes bigger?

Would this look weird when wearing the suit in public, or would it be barely noticeable?

thanks!

It would look ridiculous.
