    I adore my cape, I feel so wonderful in it every time I wear it.

    Such a classic item that suits town and country alike. This was taken as we celebrated our wedding anniversary with friends. What a happy day it was.

    Sands and Hall were a delight to deal with from start to finish.

    I have admired the Hepburn Original Cape for a long time and as it was my 40th Birthday I decided to treat myself and I am pleased that I did. The photos of this cape do not do it justice. It arrived impeccably packaged I’m a beautiful ribboned box in a dust cover, the quality of the fabric is amazing. The photo I have included is me trying it on over my housework clothing with unbrushed hair and I feel stunning!! I can’t wait to style it properly. I think it’s going to have lots of outings over the next few years. Thank you Sands and Hall you have made my birthday fabulous!

    I absolutely love the cape. The colour, quality and feel.

    It wasn’t at all “hard or itchy” that normally is associated with tweed wool.
    Overall I’m very very happy!

    I own two original capes now, my most recent purchase was the ashen black colour and it’s safe to say I absolutely love both of them.

    Back in the Autumn I wore them as much as possible – the cape got so many envious looks and a good few compliments! What I love is the huge collar which stands up and of course the pockets!

    I adored the ashen black original. It’s so flattering and very slimming as well as cosy and soft.
