"Marina", tweed cloak with detachable hood


From the "Hell for Leather" autumn / Winter 2013 collection, this cloak is made in one of the premiere British tweeds, a John G. Hardy "Alsport" from Huddersfield Fine Worsteds in Yorkshire. Lined in hand quilted red silk it has a hood attached (and de-tached) by little plaited brown leather buttons. The shoulders are double-covered in tulip petal panels for extra protection if staggering Tess-style across the ridge in a storm or removed for a lighter stride across the moors with Heathcliff. It is named in honour of the lovely Marina who first commissioned it.

It's a cloak so it kinda comes in one size but we can cut smaller for a petite frame and more generously for a giantess. And there is nothing to prohibit a gentleman from wearing such a piece.
