    I am thinking about a one-button coat like the coat pictured for fall sans the shoulder thing on the sleeve...is there a name for that type of collar or it is what it is? The coat may not be the most practical but I have practical coats.

    This example of Raglan sleeves is really bad.

    I don't think there is a collar, the designer garment has a flux flipped notch lapel.

    Raglan sleeves - they're not named after The Gipper

    Unless the picture is reversed, it is a woman's coat as it buttons from right over left.

    I'm not all that manly so maybe a moot point.

    bizarre threak :confused:

    He is asking about the collar and the responses are "raglan sleeves" even though the sleeves are not raglan :roma:

    Also, that is an odd overcoat. The 1 button and collar cover nothing, so you'll be freezing if its cold.

    Interesting. Not in a particularly good way, but still, interesting. It's difficult to tell whether the collar is popped or not. I actually suspect not, given the low height of the collar at the back and still quite large gap in the middle of the chest, and instead it's actually designed to always look that way. I would be surprised if this style has a specific name; it's certainly unusual. If you were thinking of getting a similar coat made for you, I suggest just taking the photo to your tailor. Then wait for the stunned bemusement to pass, before asking whether they want to try replicating the design. ;)

    They have already expressed outrage at the thought.
