Casual shirts

I have trouble with shirts, I am short so I don't want them too long.
I am fat so don't want them too short and boxy either.
My neck is short, so the collar needs to be soft and not too tall.
I like dark colours.
My arms are disproportionately chunky, so I always cover them up.
So mostly I don't bother with them, but I think if I can find the right sort they are the perfect answer for the warm weather.
So does anyone know where I can get nice casual preferably cotton shirts in nice plain dark colours that won't drown me, cut into my neck or arms, won't gape at the chesticles.

This is really nice, not sure the photo does it justice. I have it in navy and I'm a similar shape to you.

I like that shirt, but it looks a bit formal and 'worky' to me.
In fact I have something very similar in white as my interview shirt!
