Hello, community of styleforum.net!

Please, read the link just below and the bottom point if you are lazy reader!

I don't really have much to do with fashion or any of these things, as I am not interested in being up to date nor do I have the money to succeed in that.

However! A certain jacket has come into my mind which I would really love to have, if such does even exist. ( I think it's bit too inconventional to actually even exist for most people! )

So, let me give you some info about what I exactly mean. The base is here: http://www.geekologie.com/2007/05/smoking_jacket.php

Not looking for a jacket to smoke with and impress others by saying " look, I'm smoking and this is what happens to my lungs! ", but rather the neck area is what I am interested at. It's wide and open! But, I am looking for a taller, perhaps more wide and more open one. Hoodies somehow look like that from front view (only not being tall enough), but they are more sloppy and I hate how they look from behind (as the hood is just hanging there).

So, I guess this might be something which japanese are interested at, I think I've seen in the past a similar jacket on some Japanese guy/gal, but I can't remember where. I know that in Naruto, Akatsuki group coats are similar from neck, but I don't like any coats except grey coats that are really detailed and remind you of Soviet army back in the cold war.

For tl;dr:
A jacket that has an open and wide neck part which could actually cover you up to your mouth (revealing nose and anything above), material does not matter, nor the price, as I want to know if such exists. Also, the neck part should be probably made out of some stiff material to keep it from falling constantly. And, this is probably something that japanese would design, but I have no idea where to look for it. ( Some small attempts have been made, but without success ) Oh and brand does not matter!

And for anyone who thinks that this is not fashion and especially not convenient; I will tell you that those are the two least things I am interested of. I just want something unique that I like, I am not that much of a social person who goes to every party in town, but I want to express myself simply in matter of clothing.

Thank you for advance!


Ps: I live in Finland, so I would prefer always more a store (or whatever!) that is the most closest one to where I live, as ordering from other countries is not what I have yet done. But if nothing else turns up, I can still order from other countries! But I do not know any other language than russian, english and finnish.

Your tl;dr is like the same length as the non-tl;dr.

But contains all the essential information still. And anyway, I'm one of the worst posters you would ever see in life. When it comes to literacy, my skills are on the level of those not educated. Only difference is; I know the letters. And perhaps, couple not-everyday words.

So now this cleared up, I'd hope next reply won't comment on my poor literacy skills =)

That is perfect jacket! I love the fur also, not sure if it's that long, but long enough for sure.

Just one thing, I'm bit confused with the price. If it's really 900~euros as some calculator says it is, I can't afford that currently. ( However, in (near?) future, I guess that would be a must for me. )

Just search for "funnel neck" online, that's what you're looking for.

That does look quite what I would be looking for, only problem being that the frontal area is not really covered. ( However, that would be quite acceptable. I think that could be rather more casual wear on those cold nights out in the summer! )

And as for funnel neck, THANK YOU SO MUCH. It seems that most are designed for woman (which came as no surprise, I heard that was stylish in woman circles back in the 70's and 80's? )

However, I have found some stuff out in the online with those words and at quite affordable prices. Not exactly the same as for what I am looking for, but I think that is something that would be done as custom work rather. But for now, I am going to get something at affordable prices for me currently!

Thank you very much for your help guys! (and gals?) :]
