Please be aware Black Cat Clothiers is operating out of Philadelphia, PA which is currently impacted by COVID-19. Due to this, I will be shipping less frequently to minimize my exposure at the post office. All orders will be sent instructions for how to safely handle your package when it arrives, as COVID-19 may live on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Current processing time is 2-5 business days. Be safe and thank you for understanding.
Spellbinding early 1900s International Order of Odd Fellows ceremonial robe featuring soutache and fringe along the shoulders, a cord belt and voluminous bell sleeves lined for black fabric for some extra drama. Wear while wandering the old growth forest late at night, armed only with a single beeswax candle. Fully lined, snap button closures at front + tie waist.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →shoulder to shoulder: 19 inches →bust: 50 inches →waist: 58 inches →hips: 64 inches →length: 55 inches →sleeve length: 26 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: One size fits most
CONDITION: Very good antique condition with some flaws to note. There's some discolorations throughout from ritual use, include splotches and blemishes -- we can hope these are from wine and candlewax, magick and ritual. There's some color bleed from the black areas, particularly in the bodice. There's also a few missing snaps throughout, as pictured. Because of the belt, it still closes up just fine, but something to keep in mind. Lastly, I've only cleaned this lightly, as color bleed is usually an issue with these robes. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
COLOR: Beige and black
MORE INFORMATION: By CE Ward Company. Made in Ohio, USA. Appears to be made of cotton. Dry clean only.
