Quality shirts for the slim man.
I've been looking for a shirt (re-doing my wardrobe) that fits me well and is high quality materials and craftsmanship.
I'm 6'2", 165lbs and overall I'm slim, though I do have a slight mid section ("love handles")
I've bought a few shirts from TMLewin in both their slim fit and fully fitted range. (15.5" collar, 33" sleeve which are too short). I've also bought a shirt from suit supply (£130) but that too has too much extra material. (though it's fantastic quality materials)
As you can see from the images, there is far too much excess material even though I consider myself to have a good posture. (which should pull up some material compared to a slouched posture)
Does anyone know where I could buy a shirt based on these guidelines? (I've tried a LOT from ASOS!!!)

Are you sure the suit supply one isn't cut longer, because it's meant to be tucked in (as dress shirts tend to be, and suit supply being a tailoring label)?
Why not try somewhere like Topman or RI? Just their basic shirts are nice, and should be designed for a slim fit because of their suiting.

The shirt in the photo doesn't look bad, probably in your mind it looks worse than what it actually does. I find Uniqlo slim fit shirts to be really good and they're pretty cheap too.

I've noticed you've said higher quality so Uniqlo is probably out. I like Ben Sherman - their shirts are good for slim build.

You should check out Stenströms. Stenströms The fitted body shirts are rather slim and the slimline shirts are very slim. The quality is second to none IMO.

Dalvey slim fit would be my pick in terms of quality and fit.
Thomas Pink slim fit are also worth a mention.
Both slimmer and better made than tm lewin and suit supply.
