The Inverness Cape . . .

Here a contemporary version (trimmer and shorter) of the Inverness Cape.
Probably most known from Basil Rathbone's role in the early Sherlock Holmes
movie. The Inverness has no sleeves, but a cape that wraps around open
arm holes. Very comfortable for any activity using the arms.
