Stealthy style for the Victorian gentleman, our Black Wool Inverness Cape is what to wear when strolling cobblestone streets by the light of the gas lamps - surefire, streetwise credibility.

Fashioned with a 100 percent wool exterior with black satin lining. Cowl reaches 27" down the back, while the bottom coat hem falls approximately 52", falling below the knees on the average height man. Imported. Dry clean only.

One size fits most men, up to 56" chest, neck measures 20".

Cloaked in Mystery
Ever since I was a kid, I have LOVED this look in film. I kept watching this item over the past two years and finally just ordered the darn SO GLAD I DID! It is exactly what I was expecting and looking for. It's a heavy weight, but that's OK, it's rare that you not only get "what" you paid for but MORE than you paid for, but this is one of those purchases. It just sets that air of mystery I've always loved about this look. BRAVO, Historical Emporium. You didn't just "meet" expectations -- you EXCEEDED them with this item!

Absolutely perfect.
This cape is far better than I could have ever dreamed. It is heavy, warm, and incredibly well made. The pockets are very deep and the material is quite soft for wool. It has turned many heads walking through town already. I am never taking this thing off.

Lots of wool! Weighs as much as my full length leather duster. First outing to the Symphony on a cold and drizzly night caused several compliments and one fellow wanting to know where one buys such things. Warm, comfortable and simply delightful; recommended!

Nice Cloak
A nice cloak...very heavy weight. Small neck when buttoned and very thin lining in pockets...would not trust with keys or cell phone.

Always wanted one of these
I've had my Inverness cloak for about a month and am very pleased with it. Large enough to wear a heavier coat underneath if needed. This cloak is the "perfect" garment for me in the winter when I want to sit outside on the porch or go for short walks around the property. Not too heavy and large enough to wrap around for warmth or to allow air in to cool off.

A bit too large.
It was a nice piece of clothing, but I had to return it because it was too large for me.

Fantastic coat. Big enough that I can wear another coat underneath if I need sleeves. Also big enough I can wrap another person up in it to share the warmth. Everything I hoped it would be. Great quality, comfortable lining and nice big pockets.

This Inverness is an outstanding product! Ordering was easy and it arrived promptly. I've waited to review it because the winter has just been too warm to give it a good wearing, but I recently traveled to a cooler climate and wore it for several days. Its a decent thickness of wool, and where the cape falls, the thickness is doubled. It is quite roomy and intended to be worn with a jacket underneath (it could also easily accommodate a thick sweater or even a heavy jacket if you needed). I wore it with only shirtsleeves and a waistcoat and was perfectly comfortable in upper 30's weather. By the way, when the wind gusts--its spectacular. I want to stress, like most of Historical Emporium products, this is functional clothing--not a costume piece. It appears to be exceptionally well made. This is my second purchase from Historical Emporium and I've been delighted with both and look forward to making many more. I've wanted one of these my entire adult life--but as anyone knows they can be cost prohibitive. A wool Inverness purchased on-line through a Scottish kilt-maker could set you back close to a $900; and when I was in Edinburgh about 10 years ago, I found one in a retail outlet for 375 pounds (north of $600). Historical Emporium offers a very well made product at an incredibly reasonable price. I very much hope they come out with this wool version in other colors--say an nice brown tweed?

beautiful cloak!
The cloak will not be worn until next summer, so I cannot review it properly for how it is on a day to day basis. However, it has arrived quickly and it looks great on my partner, for whom I purchased it. And he loves it, too. We'll know better how it performs 6 months from now!
