Shawl Collar Fashion Designs : Fashion Design: Double-Breasted Notched Shawl Collars


This type of collar is called a double breasted
notched shawl collar. That’s a tongue twister and a half. Now the double breasted part of
the term comes from the fact that it’s, one half of the jacket is folding over on the
other half of the jacket in order to close it. So there’s double, one part of it, two,
there’s my five again, two parts of it. Now the notched part of it, is as I’ve said a
zillion times, where the notch comes in. The shawl part of it comes from the curvature
of the actual lapel, the fact that it has a curve and the fact that this part of the
lapel is going to curve too. So if this were to continue, if this were just going to be
a regular shawl collar it would, it would go all the way up like this and curve. But
since it’s a notched collar, we have to take out a notch, therefore you have to label it
double breasted notched shawl.
