After seeing the new Cloak collection (not my thing) I hope to find my favorite Cloak item ever...The F/W 2004 Hoodie. If anyone has this in small or medium please contact me.</p>

Also, I may be interested in any other items from this collection (especially sweaters and jackets).</p>

I have the elbow strap blazer in black denim in a small (don&#39;t have a pic readily on hand right now). The lining in the inside of the sleeve ripped, but that&#39;s because the quality was spotty. I haven&#39;t worn it in two Falls and will sell it if anyone wants it.

I couldn&#39;t find one online, so here&#39;s a pic:</p>

</p>

If interested, please PM me. The blazer is in very good condition except for the inside lining which ripped on a seam - easily fixed. Unfortunately, it happened on the second day I wore it because the fabric wasn&#39;t pre-washed when these jackets went into production, so before Alexandre delivered them, he had them all washed. I don&#39;t think the lining held up well because of that. Also, their sizing was much tighter back then, as I normally wear a 46, which should be a Small. I tried on two Smalls before settling on this Medium one because the washing made the sizing inconsistent. Certainly my favorite jacket from that collection, but I&#39;ve outgrown it hence my putting it up for sale. </p>

I&#39;ve got that bomber. I _love_ that jacket. That&#39;s the only piece I&#39;ll never part with from that collection.

Wow, that&#39;s how much those were? My personal order with Cloak at the time was one of their larger ones, and I don&#39;t recall the retail pricing. I just sold a fellow SZ poster my elbow strap jacket, but my outerwear from this collection I still get lots of compliments on and I still really love. I shudder to think what the leather coat I bought retailed for.

what&#39;s the sizing on this like keith? and is the bomber a lot heavier than the hoodie?

</p>

It was certainly in that range--maybe $795. If you&#39;ve got the shearling leather jacket from that season, that was $3500. The black leather one that I know you have was $16..95? retail. I actually found that one at a store in Atlanta for &lt; $200, they couldn&#39;t move their Cloak stock.

</p>

It is wool and lined, so it is significantly warmer. The hood is really deep. You couldn&#39;t pass this off underneath another jacket--I mean, you can&#39;t really layer it, unless it is the top layer. Layering matters to me, being in New England :P It is cut slim, and this particular piece is cropped fairly short. Personally, it is my favorite piece that they ever did. I don&#39;t know why. I just love that damn jacket. The only piece I wear more from Cloak is the original guardsman or watchman jacket, whatever they call it, that they rehash every season now. I can layer that with a ton of stuff I have, and it works in three seasons.

ah i remember those days... sigh. i called around for pieces too, didn&#39;t end up with anything unfortunately though as i was a bit late in the game. man, we were spoiled back then with all that and the old yoox... too bad i was broke then!

</p>

That sounds about right for the price. If you got it for $200, that&#39;s amazing, as that&#39;s way below cost. I have what was called the Assymetrical Jacket in leather. I think Faust has it in cotton. It&#39;s got a great washed leather feel and a slim fit, with a removable hood. I cant find a pic of it anywhere anymore, especially since Alexandre immediately took down AW 2004 from the Cloak site after his split with Robert Geller.

Yep, that&#39;s the one I had too. When I realized that a lot of stores hadn&#39;t sold through much, if any, of their Cloak stock, I started calling places in February. I ended up waiting on that jacket until they _had_ to move it, and I negotiated them down :P I wore it for quite a while, and then sold it for nearly 5 times as much on eBay this past Spring... now, of course, I can&#39;t find a leather jacket I can afford (or want). But I just didn&#39;t feel right in that one, it felt too much like a biker jacket, and I didn&#39;t feel like I was pulling it off. A cool item, though. I do regret not buying either trenchcoat, my wife talked me out of it... There are many occasions when I should have listened, and that is one when I shouldn&#39;t have!

Are you referring to this jacket? If so, mine is wool, lined in raw silk (although I&#39;m not sure if it&#39;s raw silk, the label says so, but it feels like cotton). That jacket turns so many heads...

I can&#39;t help but think that this collection was ahead of its time. So many of the looks and trends that are popular this season are implemented in this collection. I remember originally looking at this collection in 2003 and thinking wtf? who would wear this? Funny how I now see many of the influences in from this collection in Japanese collections this fall.

</p>

are you selling this item? if so, i might be interested in an attempt to finish up my personal cloak 04 collection. i worked at a shop here in austin that picked up the fw &#39;04 cloak line, personal ordered everything i could - this jacket sold [on sale $480, sigh] and couldn&#39;t be ordered anymore. i&#39;m a little wary of the size S as they were cut significantly smaller - about one size smaller than the subsequent cloak collections, this would be equivalent to a current cloak XS i would think. the version carried here was a black waxed cotton fabric, were there other variations in terms of material?

I have the same jacket in wool as well. It really is one of my favorite pieces, however the construction is lacking. I posted this on TSF a while ago... but both the button pockets have ripped at the outer seam. I am still looking for a good tailor so I can get it fixed. I also passed up the opportunity to buy that hoodie, new in size M last year and continue to regret it to this day...

Cloak definitely had production problems that year, but I think the factory that made the cloth items was different from the one that manufactured the leather ones. My leather jacket is in great shape and I&#39;ve had no problems with the stitching or details...
