Isn't it just best/most cost effective to buy whatever shirt you think is really nice and just have it tapered? I've never had a shirt tapered because I've just been too lazy, but my alterations lady said she would do it for around $15. I've been thinking that this is pretty good way to go, but then again I don't know what the result would be like. My problem with shirt fitting is that a lot of the shirts don't fit my shoulders and chest, and so I have to buy 34/35 sleeves and get those shortened. Also, a lot of shirts' armholes are too low for me. Anyway, I am 16.5, 34/35; my chest is 44", and my waist is 33". I am 5'8" and weigh 180. If anyone is roughly my size, let me know what works best for you.
