These poly cotton blend / high thread count hair cutting capes give you that classic barbershop feel because they were custom-designed by the crew at Victory Barber & Brand.

- Machine washable
- Extra-large size is 44”x 60” for full client coverage.
- High thread count poly cotton blend prevents hair build-up.
- Comfort fit neck is fully adjustable for sizes XS to XXXL.
- Weighted ribbing for better draping.
- Antique brass hardware.
- Ultra classic pinstripe pattern.
- No big logo splashed across the front (just a tasteful little corner tag).
I really like these capes, both the size and material. While it does hold onto hair more and needs more frequent washing to polyester, the comfort factor wins out. The size works well for both kids and even for my bigger clients.
The only thing I dislike are the snaps. The top/bottom halves are reversed side to side compared to every other cape I’ve used, so it leads to fumbling while switching which side goes on top. Also, the snaps aren’t as secure as with other capes I’ve used. With that being said, I’ve gone to using cape clips to hold it in place which works out better anyway since the snaps don’t go small enough for kids or big enough for a few of my clients.
I would actually prefer an option on this cape to have no snaps at all…hint, hint! That would make this the perfect cape and it would be easier for me to use cape clips if there weren’t snaps in the way.
Long story short, if you ever end up making a snap less version of this cape, I’ll be buying several more!
Love the look and design the only problem I have with it is the hair tends to stick to them a little bit and the buttons don’t seem to hold very well had them pop off on a few clients already.
Best cutting capes out there!
This cape hits all the marks. The color, size, closure, and price point are great. As someone who cuts short and long hair it stays tight so hair doesn’t get into the neck line but also lays flat for dry cutting length. The fact that’s it’s square is pretty unique and makes it easy to fold and store as well. Definitely worth the buy.
Great capes! Perfect size, enough adjustment snaps, only have to use the cape clip on kids. They are hair repellent enough as well and free of hair with a light shake.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is this cape for?
The Victory Brand Cutting Cape is designed specifically for use on the male clients in your barbershop or salon.
Why is this cape so special?
I wanted to have a cape that had an ultra-classic, traditional look but was premium in both feel and function.
How is it different from other capes?
The ultra-classic pinstripe pattern brings a heritage feel to every grooming service. The breathable poly-cotton blend allows for maximum comfort and reduces the heat buildup around the neck, reducing perspiration that causes hair to stick to the neck. Its generous size ensures that it completely covers any client both in front and at the back of the chair, and the ample amount of vintage snaps helps ensure a tight fit on the neck of almost any client.
Problem & Solution
Most capes are made of nylon or polyester and trap heat inside, causing heat to come out at the neck opening. This is not only uncomfortable for clients—it also creates perspiration and makes hair stick to the neck. The Victory Brand Cape is made of a breathable poly-cotton blend, making it comfortable but durable.
Traditionally, classic capes use a separate clip mechanism to hold the neck closed, and they are almost useless without it. These clips usually go to live somewhere with single socks from the dryer, keys, your high school yearbook, or other things that get lost and are never seen again. The Victory Brand Cutting Cape comes specifically fitted with vintage snaps that create a wide array of possible sizes, so you never need to go looking for your clasp again.
Many low-budget capes are smaller in size and result in hair getting all over the client’s pants and lap, as well as down the back of the chair. The Victory Brand Cutting Cape generously covers both the front and back of the chair, ensuring your client stays clean.
Can I use this for coloring?
No. We do not recommend it. A poly-cotton blend is far from waterproof and will easily stain if color lands on it.
Is it machine washable?
YES! Our newest update to our Cutting Cape makes it fully machine-washable with little or no shrinking.
Won't hair stick to it?
Not very much. Because the cape itself is made of high thread count cotton, it is easy to remove hair with a strong shake. Over time, a small amount of hair may stick to the fibers. With regular washing this should not present a problem.
