Are these snap things to attach a collar to?

    Please forgive my absence of knowledge. That is the reason why I'm asking... and there is obviously a better name than snap things for the 3 round pop in thingos around the neck. I'm thinking there are to attach a fleece collar probably?
    Anyone's help- thanks!

    I think they're there to attach the collar to the body in case the jacket is not fully closed, to prevent it from flapping around in the wind when riding.

    I didn't know about this 2 years ago. This is just something I've learned spending too much time here on this great forum :)

    I'd say keep this thread for all the other like you and me who didn't know.

    Good call Marc. Thankyou I don't feel so silly now! Because it is an ex Police jacket a myriad of snap on accessories went through my mind, including radio gear!

    I'm pretty sure you can go in and correct the spelling through the Edit function. If not, I can do it for you. At first I thought spelt was incorrectly spelled, then I saw there was an "l" before the "t' and not an "i" as I originally read it. If I am correct spelt is the past and past participle of spell in England, so we can just leave that one alone.
