This vintage cape, in black wool with red wool trim and a lined hood was made in England by Harbro and is a most striking 1960s clooak. I've had this since my college days during the height of Carnaby Street style and it definitely has a Sargent Pepper vibe. Harbro was know for their fine woolen cloaks, coats and suits and a 1967 Harbro cape, pictured, is in the permanent collection of The London College of Fashion as an example of virgin merino wool certified by The Woolmark Company, the global authority on Merino Wool since 1937. This cape is in wonderful vintage condition, there are no holes, stains or odors, the eye part of hook closure shows wear but functions perfectly and there is one skipped stitch on the red trim. This has been stored since the 70s, though a cape may be ideal for bullfighting, it's not a practical outerwear choice for working with horses, and would benefit from a dry clean to refresh it, The cape has no arm openings and is basically one size fits most and has the "Harbro Made in London England" label and measures 46 inches in length and has a 120 inch sweep. This is a fab alternative way to keep warm, it's as cozy as being wrapped up in a blanket.
