*A revers or rever is a part of a garment that is reversed to display the lining or facing on the outside of the garment. The word is a lazy form of reverse. The most common form of revers is the lapel. An interesting thought about how the revers became popular is that in the 1860s in France as soldiers began unbuttoning the fronts of their uniforms. When the revers became dirty, the uniform could be buttoned up to show a clean front again.
