Collection of clothing styles for reference.
When I can't find a nomenclature for a set of styles, I make up my own terms. It's easier to think about them when they have names. Made-up names are marked (M).
Sorted newest to oldest. Where "oldest" includes imaginary styles from fantasy art and cosplay.
Chelsea boots were invented in the Victorian Era, and are still commonly used today.
They reach the ankle and have elastic at the sides.
Pull-on boots, no laces or other closures.
Worn by men and women.
Quine (M) here means a lace-up boot that reaches the bottom of the knee.
Merry (M) here means a lace-up boot that covers the shin.
Stout (M) here means the laces start at the ankle joint instead of along the foot.
Counter (M) here means the laces are placed not in the front and not along the side, but in between them.
Turnover (from collar terminology) here means the top of the boot folds down.
Stout Counter Quine
Band: a strip of fabric that fastens around the neck, perpendicular to the body of the garment, to which a collar proper may be attached.
Points: the corners of a collar; in a buttoned-down collar, the points are fitted with buttonholes that attach to small buttons on the body of the shirt to hold the collar neatly in place.
Spread: the distance between the points of a shirt collar.
Stand: the band on a coat or shirt collar that supports the collar itself.
Lapels: when the garment opens down the front, and the top edges of the collar are folded back to form lapels.
Standing or Stand-Up: fitting up around the neck and not lying on the shoulders.
Turnover: standing around the neck and then folded or rolled over.
Flat or Falling: lying flat on the shoulders.
Soft Collar: an unstiffened collar.
The shape of collars is also controlled by the shape of the neckline to which they are attached.
Jewel Neck: a neckline sitting at the base of the neck all around.
