Carrick coat

The Carrick coat is overcoat with 2 to 5 cape collars.
From the beginning of the 19th century, coats with capes were very popular. Different models of coats had capes, but among them the Carrick stood out or was sometimes called “Garrick”. Initially the name was a caricature, but then it remained.
The carrick coat with sleeves differed from the others in having a layered cape. Usually there are 3 or 5 layers of cape, but there were also two layers, but we came across the signature: Carrick with one cape.
The carrick was made of wool, usually beige, sometimes brown, camel, yellow and black. The carrick was worn for riding or traveling.
The Carrick was popular in the first quarter of the 19th century, but then single cape coats became popular.
