No, the lapels aren't too wide. The gorge and button stance are kind of high, though.
I don't really see how this happened -- would it have been the plastic stays in the collar points? If so, it may not be noticeable, and remember to remove them next time.If something melted onto the shirt, you may be able to un-melt it by covering the plastic with a thin towel and holding a warm iron over it. The plastic will melt and be absorbed into the towel.

I go to about a half-dozen black tie events per year. These are fundraiser gala dinner type events where the invitation says either black tie or black tie optional. I own my own DB dinner jacket, but I would guess the majority of the gentlemen who attend these things rent. The ones who don't rent have bought something notch-lapeled at JAB and wear it with a pre-tied bow tie, often in a "festive" color like red, or occasionally a long black silk tie.
