Un-tuckable long sleeve shirts

This has some echoes of my question
from about a year ago, but I'm looking for some more help. I've found that the "long sleeve shirt untucked" look works well for me on weekends, but I am having a heck of a time finding appropriate shirts.

Regular dress shirts are cut too long for wearing untucked -- it looks ridiculous, IMHO. And of course they have the curved hem which makes it obvious that they're meant to be tucked in. I spent a long time at Nordstrom yesterday, and found a bunch of shirts that seemed like they'd be good candidates, but even they were all too long IMHO. This is exacerbated by the fact that I tend to be just on the borderline of medium vs. large, with the medium often being just a bit too tight in the shoulder and chest. But really the bottom line is that it seems like most of those shirts really are cut as if they're designed to be tucked in, even if they aren't traditional "dress shirt" designs.
If you're a guy (or you know a guy) who wears these kind of shirts (and looks good doing it), what is your go-to source?
