Shirt Alternatives to CT and TM Lewin

I have been buying CT shirts for a few years but they dont fit me as well as I would like them to fit. The ESF is to tight for me and also I get a big roll in the neck area. The slim fit is a bit to large (sides, shoulders, arms). I have to spend around 30-35€ per shirt on alterations to get an okay fit.
Was not able to find anything at TMLewin also. I know Brooks Brothers are also quite popular but I am located in Europe and BB is very expensive.

What are other good (European) alternatives? I would not mind spending a bit more than CT but would like to stay below ~80€/shirt. Preferably with a bit thicker fabric like the royal Panama at CT for example.

Would appreciate any suggestions , thanks!
