Anybody ever seen an Isaia sportcoat with the weird collar tab? Pix is attached. What is the alleged purpose of the tab? In real-life wearing is it really obvious - look weird?
Thx

It is there so that the collar can be buttoned closed on cold/windy days.

+1. It's called a throat latch. They are not particularly obvious, but some are removable (buttoned on). This one looks like it could be, but it's hard to tell.

you can also rotate it around and hide it under the collar if you prefer it not be seen.

I have an Isaia jacket with this same throat latch. It unbuttons and has a button inside the jacket to stow it away. It is a fun detail if you like that sort of thing. I do.

I have a very nice Jil Sander Tweed Sportcoat with this same feature. It hides behind the lapel with a button
