Stand-up Lapel Collar Pattern Construction
This interesting collar variant is the combination of the cut for a stand-up collar and the simple lapel collar. The collar cut is constructed in the neck like a stand-up collar, so the break edge only begins in the front. This particularly refined collar lends each jacket an extravagant chic.
