It has that correctly folded right hand collar then the swooped out storm flap and the weird rounded left collar tip.

Good spot!

Yeah, it does indeed look like the left tip is rounded and the right is left rather rigid!! I would guess the swoop might be because as a right hander he may well have tugged on it there more often, but the collar design certainly is a little "funky"!!

Godd eyes Kt!

Yeah, we've had some fun arguments about this:

The Main Hero Jacket's Right Collar Tip (http://www.fortuneandglory.org/index.php?topic=723.0)

I'd say we're overdue for some more arrows, NB? ;)

Nice work though!

Yeah, I must admit I ended up ducking out of those discussions, though on review I *think* everyone agreed that both collar tips are rounded.

For me the 3 tells of the sharply creased top of collar fold on the jackets right, the swoop on the storm flap and the kinked flap with the rounded jacket left collar point really identify the main hero even if you can't see the ribby merino striations.

When will you bottom feeders learn that you can't tell anything from screen caps and arrows?? Hold on, I've just got a text from George....

I 've been shouting for years that the right collar is pointy and the left rounded.
I even replicated that effect on my Wested using HWT and moulding technique

To be fair Platon, you've been shouting about a lot of stuff for years.... ;)

Maybe our definitions of rounded vs pointed are different

Honestly NB, I believe that's glint from the studio lights hitting the area along the edge seam. You can see a similar effect on the other collar.

Illusion!

I hope Gunslinger doesn't mind if I borrow a couple of his photos:
