Inverness Cape - 100% Wool - Black

Nice Cloak

Item: 005871


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. Ideal for your favorite Sherlock or Jack the Ripper impression, but will also shine as a stylish dress cloak.

Falling below the knees, this full-length, black-lined cloak features a generous cut and over-cape construction with fabric-covered buttons from the neck to waist. Inner cloak has generously sized arm holes to allow freedom of movement and access to two slant pockets.

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".

Well made wool cape coat
I bought the black...I normally wear a large...the Cape fit extremely well....very long..a about 3 to 4 inches above the ankles... that's exactly what I wanted...great for a person who likes or needs to wear suits to work..this fits perfectly over jacket and does not make bullkie like regular long wool dress coats. The delivery was also faster than I expected...overall, if you are on the market for a formal wool cape like you see in the picture, then this is for you.. I would say this coat will fit from a large to an xlarge... don't know beyond that or below for a medium might be too big... that's my perception guys as I said I am large..and I could see someone a little heavier than me (5'9 190lbs.) Fitting into this because it is a cape which allows for more space inside

Love It
The inverness Cape is a beautifully crafted item in 100 percent wool! I can't afford a Harris Tweed one for my highland kilt oufit but this will do wonderfully

High Quality Garment
This cape is quite stunning. I previously purchased the Inverness Ulster in tan herringbone, and I am just as happy with this. I will need to have this one shortened slightly, but that is due to my lack of height, not to the product. Historical Emporium is a class act through and through.

Awesome Cape!
This cape is well constructed of high quality materials, definitely an asset as an everyday coat or costume. I am very happy with this purchase, it was exactly as advertised and arrived on time in great condition.

inverness cape
Button hole for the top button is not in the right place causing a wrinkle , because the next button hole is too close to the top one. I'll have to have it fixed here. Other than that I have enjoyed wearing it.

Perfect Dickens Cape
I've had my eye on this Inverness Cape for some time and finally purchased it to wear at Dickens on the Strand in Galveston Texas. The event was held this past weekend and I couldn't be happier with how the cape fit, looked and performed! I'm six foot tall and the cape is a perfect length for me. It's made of weighty 100% wool with a nice satin lining and is period correct in every respect. The Cape is very well styled and toasty warm. It also has two generously sized pockets which came in very handy. A PERFECT winter weather garment addition to my Regency/Victorian wardrobe. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase!!!

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.
