Re:New Member with question: Cloak- "Dunkelroter Sammetmantle"
- "Dunkelroter Sammetmantle" means "Dark Red Velvet Cloak" so the other
color photo was probably of a different garment. This is a guess on
my part, but it looks to me like a cassock or "casaque" possibly used
by a guard or musician in a military unit, or a civilian garment
inspired by military fashion. The stuff attached along the edges
looks like metallic galloon rather than fringe to me.
