Inverness Cape - Black Cotton

Shadows of the Night. . .

Item: 008000


Stealthy style for the Victorian gentleman, our Black Cotton 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 satin-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.

This cotton cloak with black satin lining falls well below knees at approximately 52", the attached cowl measures 27" in length, and the armholes are 14". Four fabric-covered buttons fasten the front. Imported. Dry clean only.

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

Another great coat
I bought the wool version of this for winter. This cotton version is a perfect light version.

Wow! Impressive!
I'm impressed! Much better made than I expected. This will work well with my collection of hats; pirate, detective, western, the shadow, etc. As far as the fit goes, it's just rite for my 6' 3" - 211lb frame.

Lightweight and Functional
This was perfect for my dad. He did get it waterproofed for those Rainy New Orleans days! The length and weight are perfect!

More than happy!
I honestly did not know what to expect as far as quality and I have to say I was very impressed. The cape is beautifully made. It is not some cheap reproduction but a well put together, stunning piece of clothing. Itís one size fits all is a little big on me. Iím 5í 11Ē at 185 lbs and the shoulders are a little large, but I can certainly live with that. I would recommend Historical Emporium to anyone looking for quality period clothing.

Real clothe, not a costume
Was perfect for acting Jack The Ripper last Halloween, it's twice the price of a cheap costume but 10 times better quality, even more!

The black Inverness Cape
The cape looks good, all seems to be in order with it, how it is made, the buttons, etc. The black satin lining is nice.

Plays the part
I needed this for a cemetery tour that I was involved with. And I wanted to do the Victorian era and this was perfect. I got many compliments on it and it really looks good on me definitely happy with the purchase.

A quality costume
Got this for a Halloween costume. Also for my stage theater. This was a very good value decently well made with good pockets. Wore it in NYC Halloween 2021 and it was comfortable and warm enough but not suitable for really cold weather. Glad I bought it and will have many future uses.

I feel 19th century
Excellent cape at an excellent price. And there is very little sticking on the black cotton. So glad this cape became available again.

For many years I have wanted this very coat and at long last, I have one now, and it is absolutely wonderful! It is the perfect fall coat, light enough to wear on its own or, should the weather turn a bit chilly, with a light jacket underneath and you are set to go. I was not sure if I'd like the sleeveless design but I absolutely love this coat. I will be purchasing the full sleeve, 100% wool version soon for when the snow starts. This is not a coat for everyone due to its style and cut and it raises eyebrows whenever I wear it but I am glad I did.
