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.
These client capes perform as advertised. The client coverage is good. Lots of neck size range. The vintage design and feel is on the mark for that classic barber look. I really like the stripes. Even the logo patch is tastefully done.
Handling the capes around the client reminds me of old hospital bed sheets, clean and soft to the touch. Definitely a step up from your average polyester cape with barber icons printed on them, or more expensive national clipper company branded capes.
The capes are very cool and comfortable for the clients. Hair sits on the the cape during the service, but with a shake or two the hair is gone!
Pricing is above average but so is the fabric and finish. There are more expensive brand name capes that don’t perform as well as these capes. The capes arrived in a classic looking box, well wrapped. No issue with the shipping. I would have preferred to buy my capes locally at a nearby Victory B and B shop to save on shipping, nonetheless the purchase was very easy and efficient. Staff handled my inquiries professionally.
I love the style and feel of this cape as do my clients the only thing I wish had been done with this to make it perfect for all was a few tighter setting snaps so that it can be used on the ladies kids and gentlemen who have a smaller neck so the hair doesn’t get down, I just switch to another one but I like this one so much I dont want to May even make it in 2 sizes ?
I like the cape but the hair sticks in the weave so, I only use them once if I have cut the hair short. I have another cape just like it made out of a nylonish something or other material and the hair slides right off.
I also don’t like that the cape isn’t wider. If you don’t pay attention and the sides of the cape go between the client and the chair arm than the hair accumulates in the chair. My bad, I should’ve payed better attention to dimensions.
I really like the vintage look of the cape and finding a thicker cape is so hard these days . My only complaint is that the hair sticks to it pretty good other than that it’s solid .
Surprise, surprise! Another product we love from Victory! Our clients love these capes and we couldn't be happier.
