I have always had at least one db in my closet. ....

I have a BB Country Club blazer, a charcoal grey pinstripe, and a grey flannel. You are more likely to find dbs at Brooks, Paul Stewart etc. The low end stores don't like to get into anything that might not sell, so they avoid dbs, although JAB had a couple about three years ago. When a fat guy walks into JAB and wants separates, you're not going ti interest him in a db.

As for tab collars, I used to wear them when lapels were thin in the 60s, but they don't work too well with lapels that are somewhat wide, especially peak lapels. A spread collar with French cuffs is the shirt to wear with a db, or a spread cutaway. I like the tab, but I'm tired of having thin ties, thin lapels then the next day wearing wide ties with wide lapels. 3-1/2" to 4" ties work well with a db, and I'll probably never wear a tab collar again.
