The Escalade hat and capelet are a stylish set for your fall wardrobe. The hat has a bit of slouch to give a comfortable fit. The ribbing band is smaller in circumference than the body of the hat to keep it snugly on your head. Keep your shoulders warm with this classic looking capelet. The cable pattern gently decreases towards the top to give shaping and a lovely look to the cable patterning.
