Cape Crusade..

Are we the best vintage store in the country?? If you want a cape then, I'd guess at the moment, that would be a yes. We've got about a dozen in, all great quality, proper vintage and each one an item that makes the wearer feel cool and unique as well as cosy!

Heres a funky 60s wool number, no label. Great colours and really warm

A vintage nurses cape, we've no idea how to wear the 2 long ties, anyone?
A lovely camel colour felt one, probably home made in the 60s or 70s
Another wool number, Mexican, bought in Texas in the late 60s. Great ethnic patterns

Saving the best for last, here's another Mexican cape, bought in the early 70s and made of a great quality suede with detailing at the front, absolutely stunning.
 We've got plenty of others too, even kids ones, really sweet.
To pad out the blog here's a picture of a 'groovy' 60s cape.  Its surprising hard to find good pictures of cape wearers that aren't either superheroes or in Kasabian.
