Cream wool cape designed by Arthur McGee. The cape falls below the knee and sloping shoulders with slits for the arms. It closes at the center front with ten (1) round mottled brown and cream plastic buttons. The buttonholes are hidden, being placed in the seam where the front right side placket attaches to the front right side body. There is a short standing collar with attached self-fabric ties that tie at the center front neck. The cape has two (2) patch pockets with rounded bottoms, one at each front side hip. The cape is not lined and there are no labels.
