I've seen this style of jacket in nice RTW with a collar but with no lapel (or should I say no break line in the facing that would create the lapel?). What do you call this? I love the look of it, and I want to catalog it for future projects, but I feel like I need a better descriptor.

The best project you could be working on is the one that's on the table right now.

Another term I've heard used is inverted notched collar.

Is the model wearing rubber bands on her wrist?

Is the model wearing rubber bands on her wrist? Sure thing! a most keen observation on your part... very popular among us who spend time working in office cube farms...

Oh, I love this look! I wish I could purchase it or make it right now. This is so me! Where did you get the picture?

It looks like a cardi type front with a notched collar. like a blouse with the collar turned up.
