    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.

    I definitely have no idea what I'm looking at/for.

    That places you in good company.

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