Good Day Lords and Ladies! This dashing cloak is a timeless classic essentially worn throughout Europe by Lord and Ladies for centuries. The elegant cloak’s distinctive drape and full, gathered shoulders will comfortably accommodate any Lords or Lady's frame, and will add a distinguished presence to any attire. Whether you require formal outerwear, or are looking to add a dramatic flair to your period clothing, this fitted evening cloak will make a statement of style wherever you go!
This warm winter cloak is full enough to wear over a dinner jacket, bodice, or doublet, but not so voluminous that you have to struggle with large amounts of fabric. The shoulders are fitted to prevent the neckline from sliding on you and is fastened with a sturdy organic clasp that adds an accentuating organic style.
This gentry cloak comes with a lightly interfaced collar that is designed to hold its form while remaining supple. The cloak's fabric comes in a beautiful coat-weight wool (pictured), and all cloaks are lined in a smooth satin lining that will glide over your attire and provide additional warmth and comfort. All seams have been surged and finished and the inside neck edge expertly hand stitched to last for years.
In different time periods, cloaks were worn at different lengths, but as a general rule of thumb they should never drop below the ankle (especially for walks along those muddy pathways). If you desire your cloak shorter, we now offer CAPES in appropriate lengths (most capes traditionally reach the thigh). 100% Dyed wool in this quality is hard to come by! For a cloak of similar quality with a more durable and rustic appeal, you must see our dashing European Commoner's Cloak! or for you ladies our incredibly gorgeous Irish Kinsale Cloak!!
