Civilian Cape (Mantle or Opera Cape)

Ladies, Gentlemen and Officers

Item Last Updated: Thursday, 24-Nov-2016 19:49:03 EST

Civilain Cape in Green, 19th Century (1800s) Men's Clothing
     Our CIVILIAN CAPE W/COLLAR, often called a Mantle or Opera Cape. The Standard Cape length extends to the fingertips, longer lengths can be specified at extra cost. It is similar to the mounted style greatcoat cape with lay-down collar.

    The civilian cape is made from quality Military weight woolens for warmth. A heavy black cotton lining is standard, with two inside hand size pockets. The front is closed by means of a single black "frog" and hook and eye at the collar or with 5, 7 or 9 cloth covered buttons.

    This garment is a very stunning addition to any civilian impression when worn during the Spring and Fall evenings. This cape can be used for Civil War as well as much of the rest of the Victorian period. It can be used by Ladies, Gentlemen and Officers.
