So, start a routine!

Unfortunately, focusing on the muscles in a particular area does nothing to target the surrounding fat; fat-loss is a whole-body thing.
Probably the first thing to do would be to try and find your body fat percentage. A ballpark is fine; you can get it measured with calipers at some gyms. If your bodyfat is low, then it might just be the way you're built. Like Izawwlgood said, some guys do get cosmetic surgery because of this. It's a bit drastic, but if it really affects your quality of life, there's no shame in considering it.
If your body fat percentage is medium or high, then you might be able to get there just by losing some fat. Straightforward enough.
But at 5'11" and 155lb, it's probably safe to say that you're not super-muscular. And while I'm sidestepping the whole 'what is fitness' debate, your strength level seems to agree with this. (For reference, here are some ballpark numbers for how much people at different bodyweights can bench press; an untrained 148lb male can typically bench 109lb or so.) So it might just be a matter of putting on some muscle all around your body. Squats, deadlifts, overhead press, chin ups; you get the idea. And food. Slightly oversized pecs would probably be less noticeable on a 180lb frame than a 155lb frame, given that you're 5'11".
