Considering the look you're going for, stiffly starched detachable collars and corresponding shirts from Darcy Clothes are probably what you want. The taller the collar, the better the match for your tailcoat.

Tripp pants are a bad match, because the coat is distinctive enough already. Go with laced knee breeches for tall boots and plain black or striped fall front pants for short boots.

I need something to follow my jaw line and hug my neck, soon I plan to uproot my tie collection.
Replacing with cravet and tie pins, For the wastcoat I need lapels to comand the outfit when the tails are on rack for what ever resions.
To the comment on the tripp pants, To dress up is to be at your best, my tailcoat dose not need center stage. It needs to comand all the pieces. Same with my boots, tightening my lines below the knee.

With shirts, color is an important factor to consider. Black is a given, as it goes with everything and can be worn longer without showing stains, but a dark burgundy is also an option for similar reasons. You might also want to look into a black and grey multiple stripe, which will suit a tailcoat and Tripp pants well.

High, starched collars are the most elegant option, of course, but they can chafe and discolor fairly easily. If you decide to go that route, it would be prudent to line the interiors with an adhesive cloth tape.

I was thinking my ties would keep it snug, so as long as the fit was snug to my neck the tie would keep it up.
On the Other note for colours, I love the darker spectrum. Still like some colour but still

Wing collars are versatile for casual and dress wear, and look good unstarched. You could also buy a shirt with a regular point collar and keep the collar turned up; the visual difference is practically unnoticeable.

How do you feel about turtlenecks?
