This is very helpful, thanks! Do you get the leather wet at all or just go dry?I don't think its actually the size of the collar but some are just like this. I've had many like this high and low.
This is one of my most stubborn one, its a stubborn goat that would keep going back. Third time clamping just now:

Lube the seam, moist fibers are easily coerced...

The top clip is actually the trouble area, the other two just to get the collar wider towards the shoulder. I added another clip to give that pointy look on the other side. You probably want a rag between the clips and the leather because yours is teacore and can rub off. Mine is tough goat and fur so I didn't use rag in between to avoid early wear.

Usually with one good night of clamping my collars can look and stay like this:
