Mine is fifty-some years old; made by Burberry in a lovely Harris Tweed.
|Inverness cape, Ancient Bruce Tartan kilt, Vintage 1934 kilt jacket, shooting socks and brogue shoes|
The cape is cut just above the knees, deep armholes, two large patch pockets, an overcape cut at arms lenght and a collar. The design gives great protection from wind and rain, but also when un-buttoned allows for great movement - e.g. folding the overcape over the right shoulder for shooting.
A great design that has survived since 1880s.
|Having a wee dram sitting on the shooting stick. Sláinte!|
