jabots means: The frilled, decorative and often lace-laced jabots hang from the shirt’s front. These were the 17th-century equivalent to a gentleman’s tie. Jabots were made from lace and cambric and attached to the shirt’s front opening. They were later secured around the neck by a band or pin. Imagine Pirates of the Caribbean meets the Supreme Court. Jabots remain part of the ceremonial attire of barristers and judges. (in Fashion Dictionary)
