We are in the process of renewing our website, and I want to make 'clever' search on items by attributes. One of the attributes in the collar type/style, but my limited english do not allow me to get that correctly.

Which are the common names for collars on furs?

Whoever wants to help can browse our catalogue and name the collars they see on our catalogue

Thank you for the assistance

I think I can help you with that. Examples such as:

 

 

Shawl collar: http://www.mailonfurs.com/women/perlato-mink-jacket-with-cat-lynx-collar

 

This is also a shawl collar (at the top) but I have seen this kind of effect described as 'waterfall': http://www.mailonfurs.com/women/mink/saga-royal-black-mink-jacket-with-sable-collar-and-trim

 

I think these type of collars could be described as 'convertible collars': http://www.mailonfurs.com/women/sheared-black-mink-fur-jacket-with-bell-sleeves

Most convertible collars are like this: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_SzUI3__TLxg/S_bCqJ0Ql7I/AAAAAAAABeI/uh6X8TArMek/s1600/convertible+collar+drawing.jpg

 

But these ones you have styled as convertible, but they are a bit different because they are funnel collars: http://www.mailonfurs.com/en/women/sheared-whiskey-mink-fur-jacket-with-unsheared-sleeves-collar

Basically, a convertible collar is a collar that can be worn two ways. They can be worn closed up (looks like a shirt collar or a Ghillie collar) or with top button open (you can see a rever shape or an elongated or pointed shape that comes across the shoulders). Some of your convertible collars become funnel collars because when they are completely closed up, the fur doesn't fold over to create a Ghillie shape but instead goes up the neck in a turtleneck/poloneck shape. However I would call it a funnel collar on a coat because turtleneckl/poloneck are associated with knitwear.

 

This one is also a convertible collar because it can be buttoned right up: http://www.mailonfurs.com/mens/mens-sheared-black-mink-overcoat

 

But if you have any that stay open in the shape of a traditional man's suit collar and don't get buttoned right up, that can be called a rever collar instead.

 

I would think to call this a Peter Pan collar because it is quite flat and rounded: http://www.mailonfurs.com/women/empress-chinchilla-fur-jacket

 

 

 

 

 

I have to go to uni but I'll come back and have a another look this evening. Link me to any I might not have addressed!

Foxb I seem to recall seeing a term "Ring Collar" used as well.

 

I am sure that is a duplicate term for one of the others, but all that I remember is that somehow that term "Ring Collar" sticks in my mind. I've no idea what the photo of it looked like. I imagine that it was likely a term made up on the spot to describe what it looked like to the seller.

 

It is great to see your ideas on this Foxb. This gives our members access to some information that we would normally never see, and just maybe when Kostas uses the correct terms in his descriptions, some other designers will as well.

On a side note, I remember reading some fur stories a long time ago, where the authors would desribe the fur coats in the story in such detail that made you wonder if you read a work of fiction or the catalogue of a furrier, LOL!

I've not heard the term 'ring collar' but I can imagine what sort of collar it would fit. However, I just looked it up in Google images and many of the pictures were of, erm, the kind of collar one might wear in a bedroom situation...

 

I am not an expert on fur by any means but I am about to graduate in fashion design so hopefully I can offer an interesting perspective. That said, I'm currently making a fur coat - it is sheared shadow nutria with laser etching around the bottom (which is really annoying to match up).

I have seen descriptions like that. But it's very easy to do if you're passionate... Even just writing my brochure blurbs for my collection I find it incredibly difficult not to ramble on - I wrote 600 words when I was meant to write 200, and now I've found out that I have to cut it down to 75... HOW?!!

 

I guess that the authors of the stories just really, really wanted you to visualise the fur!
