VINTAGE CUTTING CAPE
This poly cotton blend / high thread count hair cutting cape gives you that classic barbershop feel because it was custom-designed by the crew at Victory Barber & Brand.
Some Features That Make It One Of The Best Capes Out There:
- 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).
We needed a cape that was not plastic and would be comfortable while getting a basic haircut. This cape was exactly what we were looking for. It is comfortable, does not cause overheating and fits perfectly.
Bought these sight unseen. I love these. They look great, feel great and wash even better. Waiting for them to come back in stock so I can buy more. CLients lo e the look!
Exactly what I needed!
These are great capes. The best quality and performance. The hair just shakes away. My customers really like them. Feedback includes comments about the low temperature and quality. I have had two for the past ten months. I use them every day and find them to be very durable.
With returning to work and the Worksafe BC Covid 19 protocols requiring more capes and even more laundering, I bought twelve more capes as did my colleague. I feel my customers deserve more than a disposable cape, which is nothing more than a plastic garbage bag. I can justify the extra cost by using only the best quality products.
One comment about Victory’s choice of e-commerce engine. Bring it home boys and girls. Using US dollars and shipping sources is not cool. Get with Shopify or some other Canadian e- logistics firm. Your products are really great but a little more Canadian content eh!
At any rate, I am happy to be back to work using my crisp new Victory Barber and Brand capes. Thanks for the great products Victory!
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.
