Drape tutorial?

post #1 of 343
Thread Starter 
I see lots of discussion on "drape." What exactly are we talking about? And apparently I spelled the title wrong, lovely.

I know people think this is a stupid question, but can we just get one picture of each for comparison?

I will regret this, but here we go:

1. An example of a draped jacket: Solito



2. An example of a draped jacket: A&S



3. Examples of draped jackets: A&S



As for jackets that have no drape, that would be 99% of all jackets that you see, RTW or bespoke.

This London Lounge thread is the best explanation of drape I've seen, and includes good pictures.

If you read AY's link to the London Lounge thread, as he notes, that is a decent start.
