Vergil's vest

Hi guys. I'm trying to figure out if I should include the collar or not on Vergil's (from Devil May Cry) vest. Some of the official art has it, and some doesn't. In most of it, the collar is there, but--depending on the shot--sometimes it is more prominent and sometimes less-prominent. Basically, I want to see what people think looks better, and show how it looks thus far without the collar (I have not added the zipper, so in the picture it is pinned in the front. This will be a black zipper when finished.) Do I need to make the collar, or does it look good without it?

My vest and cravat:

hmm... I see what you mean. I think I'd do the collar, mostly because you are a three dimensional being and the cravat will need a little something at the back of your neck to hide the ties.
It's easy to forget that people will be looking at your outfit from all angles. When we watch stuff on TV we don't get that boring 'walking down a hallway looking at someones back' view very much. Out & about at a Con it happens a lot.

Ties? But cravats normally tie in the front, not in the back. (Just like an ascot.) There are no ties in the back, it's a solid piece. You can see this with the picture of it laid out on a table. Unless you mean just the black strip of fabric part? *confused*
