    Hugh Jackman is a fellow Aussie who owes his success to copying my style.

    Nevertheless I am concerned at the lack of love (Clags excepted) for big shearling collars. Might be advisable to defer my final decision for 24 hours.

    Collar that big seems odd on a coat that short.

    The collar is a bit large, especially for the length, as Doc pointed out, but I think that the disproportionality of the collar is emphasized by the overall discordance of seeing that jacket with a tie and suit pants, regardless of whether you told us to ignore it. I think had it been with jeans and a flannel shirt, our brains would have been much happier with the collar size. As is, our brain feels like the whole fit is wrong and probably then emphasizes everything which isn't quite right.

    You also have a big head, so I think it works a bit better.
