    On p. 261 of Flusser's Dressing the man there is a suit with a somewhat notch lapel. The right lapel is regular notch but the left is different. The collar extends to the width of the lapel and it has a buttonhole in the extension (the lapel itself has a buttonhole too). What's this? How is it called? Mathieu

    It's a hacking jacket. Not that you can see it, but I'm very sure there are hacking pockets as well on the jacket; they go hand in hand with this collar. The tab is called a throat latch. It is used for when you turn the collar up, and then button it. There is a button under the other lapel. For it to function properly, the tab should be longer. In this case, it is just for show.

    Doesn't the hacking jacket have its roots in the British hunting tradition?
