Gone the way of the dodo? I don't see how it is functional in any way, yet I do believe it was standard on hacking jackets for some time.

I believe it was the French Revolution that did away with that one.

That's often seen on overcoats. Pretty standard.

Is that an Ulster collar?

There are some very interesting historical lapel styles esp. around the Georgian/Regency eras; god knows how they all evolved, but I'd also be interested to know.

I quite like the so-called "lark's tongue" style, with both a upwards peak and a downwards swoop either side of the lapel notch, creating a funky overlap.

Yes, I believe the motto was "egalite, fraternite, liberte, et ne plus pas le ghey!"
