A loose outer garment of varying length, a mantle often less full and slightly more shaped than a cloak, though the terms were often used without much discrimination. In the late 18th and early 19th century, it could also be a three-quarter or full-length cape-like broad scarf with long ends in front. Later, a mantle might have capes or sleeves.
