Levi's Vintage Clothing if you really want that exact style. Otherwise, lots of retro-inspired stuff that's a bit more forgiving. That '50s style can be kind of hard to wear unless you're in very good shape.

My Hanes slim fit undershirts have super short sleeves.

Have tried the Hanes line. Unfortunately they're misshapen for me everywhere- the collar is too big, the sleeves are usually too wide, etc.

The second photo of Brando looks like he is wearing a regular t-shirt about 3 sizes too small. Look at the location of the shoulder seam.

You can have one of your current t-shirts altered. Fairly easy for a local alteration shop. If you want that brando look, and you don't have thick shoulder/upper arms, you may need to have the sleeves slimmed a bit, not just shortened.

Wythe New York released some tubular knit tees recently that have a pretty short sleeve.
