    Please forgive me for the utterly appalling paint picture! I saw a blazer with a lapel such as the one below whereby one side featured a "tab" so that if the collar was propped up it could clasp to cover the neck....I am trying to find an image of this on the net as I want to have a jacket made with one of these but have no idea what this style of lapel is called. Do any of you lads know, or am I crazy?

    Ah, thanks! It is very similar to the second coat you posted. Is there a name for that type of lapel?

    It's a hunting collar designed for the windy climate where you can raise the lapels up, and thus button up the entire thing. It looks like a Nehru collar when done up.

    Don't get it on a suit coat though. Shannon Sharpe wears this often - today, in fact - and it is one of the worst looks I've yet seen on a retired football star.

    I want to get it on a nice tweed sport coat and will probably not actually button it up fully...I just really like the look of it.

    Are you watching Lynley? It's called a throat latch, and is to some degree more common on riding and hunting jackets. I'm fond of them, as they suit my lifestyle, and I have them on my hunting jackets. STP has a looovvvvelllly Beretta jacket with that detail for ~200.00 USD or so,

    Regards,

    I don't know what Lynley is [​IMG]

    Thanks for the info. though!

    I have found a few more jackets with this collar whilst searching "hunting jackets" per your recommendation. There is a particularly nice one by Orvis, although I don't know the quality by the picture.....

    Huntsman,

    Do you ride or are we talking upland game/driven shooting?

    Huntsman,

    I don't ride, but I am correcting that in spring -- we are surrounded by horses, and it is something I have always felt I needed to know. I do hunt upland, however, and shoot a good deal of sporting clays which is where my jackets see the most use (thanks to needing to wear the bloody orange most of the time when hunting). Generally I just meant that the outdoors/sporting interests are essential to me, though more in a tweed way than a North Face way.

    And you? Presumably you ride, though?

    I don't ride, but a good friend's wife runs a hunt about four hours South of me, so I attend their parties and pose. [​IMG]

    I do hunt upland game though (mainly grouse here in Michigan), and am trying to get out and shoot clays more often these days.

    Detail on the lower scan is great! Very fitting for fall/winter tweed jacket IMHO.
