As with armholes and sleeves, the neck opening of the coat has to be the same length as the long under collar edge. Too long is much easier to fix than too short.
Mark and cut a horizontal buttonhole in each collar edge. They get the same treatment and tapes as the lapels. Next time faux pocket flaps.

Note to self: in future, sew on hooks and eyes BEFORE the buttons. Time to cut all the linen tape holding the buttons and move each down a 1/4". I love sewing.
The original holes in the broadcloth will gradually shrink and be covered by the buttons. Next time: collar and collar buttonholes.
