What is the term for a shirt with a high, unfolded collar? I just saw Tron, a terrible movie, but the actors had a similar collar to what I've wanted for a long time--a high, unfolded collar that comes up off the clavicle and looks very modern. If someone isn't making a shirt or jacket with this design, something is wrong. I've seen similar styles in racer jackets, but the collar needs to come forward a little bit more.

I've always thought that "Nehru" was a style of jacket, which features a Mandarin collar. When referring only to the collar style, "Mandarin" is probably a more widely used term.

Really close. I think maybe some mandarin collars are close enough that I would just go for that, but I want a higher and stiffer collar with a kind of U-shape cut-out. It looks very futuristic but not dorky at all.

Thanks for the help, though. If I can't find exactly what I'm searching for, at least I know something very close.
