Ottoman *patchworked* ermine-lined summer kaftan. From "Furs and Skins Owned by the Sultans" by Hulya Tezcan, in "Ottoman Costumes: From Textile to Identity", edited by Suraiya Faroqhi & Christoph K. Scanned by Barbara Viruet.
Appliquéed and embroidered kaftan. The collar + edging were embroidered separately (massive amount of gold couching), then sewn on. As can be seen in other photos, the outer edge of the collar is free and sticks out when worn
