Does anyone else think the shirt looks a bit short? Unless you wear your trousers up at your waist, I don't think the shirt would stay tucked in all day.

Vox has shown us his many pieces from DeBoise. DeBoise can make very shapely suits with fewer darts, seams, fishes, etc. than any other tailor I've seen. His dart-less jackets are much shapelier than traditional sacks. I've seen examples of his one-piece backs that...

I'm not disagreeing with you but I wonder if you could expand on what you said. I agree plain colours are more versatile. I have blue and black Crombies too plus other overcoats. What kind of clothes do you think this goes with? The reason I ask is I now have 2 of them. One in a...

These are casual trousers, so don't worry about keeping them perfectly pressed.
This isn't a good choice for business or dressier occasions. It's good for wearing over a rustic sports coat or tweed suit. The pattern is quite bold for a topcoat. Overcoats in plain or herringbone cloths are the most useful as they can go with so much more.

I never wear a belt with a suit.
You won't be able to get a matching waistcoat. If the wedding is during the day wear a white shirt and a light grey, light blue, or buff/beige (my favourite) waistcoat. If the wedding is in the evening just go with two pieces.
If you want a dart-less coat as nice as Voxsartoria's you'll need to go to Edwin Deboise. You won't find a dart-less sack shaped so nicely anywhere else. But I agree with that you're over-concerned about the matching. The matching is quite acceptable in your sports coat with the patch pockets. It's the same with flap pockets.
I would wear the ticket pocket (provided I could tuck in the flaps) before I would a two-button dinner jacket. But if only one detail is off I'd still consider it. That detail could be: a second button a ticket pocket flap pockets than can't be tucked in (fixing that would probably be too much work if possible) a centre vent (though it can be fixed) notch lapels But if more than one of those is present it's definitely out of the question.
