MENS CAPES AND CLOAKS

When imagining a mans cape, most of us probably think of the Inverness cape as worn by Sherlock Holmes in the Victorian era.  this was an overcoat with sleeves that was covered by a sleeve length cape. later the cape section was divided in two.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CAPE AND CLOAK

Normally the difference between a cape and a cloak is that the cape is short while the cloak is full length. While the full length version may be referred to as a cape, the short version is never called a cloak.

FASHION CAPES

Capes have never really been in fashion since the Victorian days, although maybe a few Dandies and Steampunks  have been keeping the style alive. In recent years a few designers have sought to resurrect the cape as a fashion item. Some of these modern designs look hideous, although the more traditional shapes can still look stylish.

There is something quite ostentatious about a man wearing a cape as a fashion item. It could be regarded as either high fashion , or as old fashioned.

 

FUNCTIONAL CAPES

The cape has long been a utility garment, used for fishing,  cycling, shooting and hunting. And  used widely by the military and police. It will always serve  a useful purpose as a functional garment when protection from the weather is required.

PATTERNS AND SAMPLES

In order for me to create a pattern for your cape design, ideally I would require an existing garment along with a sketch, and information for both front and back. Additional pictures and a look book of ideas and details would also be useful. Once the pattern is completed we can  make a toile if necessary, or go straight into making the sample.

PRODUCTION

Although we really specialise in patterns and samples, we do offer a small production service for those who only want very small quantities, or those who would like a trial run before progressing to larger numbers. So our maximum is roughly fifty garments per style.
