My friend Gary left me a voice mail today, asking me if I knew where he could buy a good cape. “I would like your opinion as to what style,” he added.
“I think the cape is underrated, and I would like to get my hands on one and wear it about.”
I will return Gary’s call tomorrow, but for the moment I am unsure about the cape.
I am thinking about recommending to Gary that he consider a cloak instead. They are warm, stylish, and above all, a good woolen cloak is available from J. Peterman.
I ask you, dear reader, is a cloak not superior to a cape? A cape is just a cape, but a cloak is a cape and a hood.
