This vintage black textured velvet cloak is a dream. The oversize hood and full length make it a real treasure to find. The texture is an almost crushed velvet / faux fur / velour type texture. Classic and intrinsically gothic. Dating this vintage item is a bit tricky, could be anywhere from the 1940s to the 1970s. It is satin or acetate lined in black, some tearing in the lining and separating of lining at arm slits, though external velvet is great. Eyelet rope loops for closure and only one button but needs three. It has just returned from a trip to the dry cleaners and is ready to wear. For frame of reference the model is 5'3". A wonderful addition to any wardrobe.
