Turndown. I recently scored a Thomas Pink Marcella for $50 off eBay. Perfect tux shirt.

Peak Lapel = Wing (Tunnel)

Tunnel? You can not be serious!
Stinks of Al's Formal Wear prom rental tux.

Wing collars suit white tie because the white tie itself blends with the shirt. A black tie has the conspicuous contrast running round the back of the neck which is unsightly. The tunnel is a horrible, unnatural attempt to force a square peg into a round hole and should be avoided at all costs IMO.

^^ I'm with you on this one, grouchy old man. A wing collar should be high, stiff, detachable, and worn on a full dress evening shirt with single cuffs. The odds that a person asking a collar question has or knows how to get such a shirt and collar are low; acquisition of a full evening dress vest lower still; possession of an elegant SB peaked dinner suit that can stand up to this added formality lower again; and being in a venue in which the most archaic of all dinner suit looks fits in appropriately nearly impossible. A hidden back for a tie on an open collar is a non-issue if the jacket, shirt, and collar fit impeccably.
