The Pelicon, a full-circle cloak with no front opening and an attatched hood (You climbed in from underneath and put your head through a buttoned neck slit) had arm slits, but it had to have them; without them, the wearer would have been unable to do _anything_!
Actually, it's a beautiful and elegant piece of clothing; egg-shaped in cut, with a train and a beautiful hood/collar effect. It ended up as a piece of formal regalia for queens after everyone else stopped wearing it.

but it's unlikely to end well."
