Cape Buckle Tutorial


Here's my little contribution from the old board for the newbies.

Since the cape edges (for the 89 & 92 suits) sit beside the emblem, one idea would be to attach cape buckles just high above the emblem cavity.

There are also stitched & glued velcros on both left & right (chest front + another on both shoulder area) to evenly distribute the force of the pull. As a result the cape is easy to wear on/off and will not strangulate you when kids pull the cape from behind! :)

This technique is for those who can't or don't want to use screw or bolts & nuts.

Edit: I literally had my two nephews pull the cape from the back. They managed to tug an inch or two but I was NEVER choked by the cape! Thank God for velcroes. emoticon

Re: Cape Buckle Tutorial


that's cool Bernie! I hate it when there's nothing to hold the cape in place, so it flops around all over the place and shifts from where you set it. that is an even better idea that I came up with. what I did was to attach velcro to the neck of the cape where the buttons/ties are, and corresponded that with the inside of the cowl, near the emblem. it's kinda tricky getting it lined up right while suited up, but your idea is pure simplicity and excellence. I need to try that :cheers

the law is inadequate. in order to shame it's inadequacy, it is necessary to act outside the law. to pursue natural justice. this is not vengeance. revenge is not a valid motive, it's an emotional response. no, not vengeance, PUNISHMENT
