I do think we need to revisit the color of the outer/great cloak. The following is from the standards discussion, posted by PondLife81:

3.) Great Cloak:
a. Floor length great cloak is constructed of a seal brown matte sateen finish fabric (pantone mix of 19-1314 TPX/19-0810 TCX), this is not a silk type satin, but a brushed satin suiting.

It is my understanding that she has seen this cloak, and has done some color matching/testing. (Please do correct me if I am wrong on this.)


Agree. The original color even in my images shows a desaturated brown.

Sorry for my absence. Besides the elections, everything life got very real for a few week. I would really like to revisit several things about this CRL.

There is a big difference between a Great Cloak and a Inverness cloak, I can write it up here or you can google it, the images are pretty clear.

The color: like the Pentanes I originally put up, I would add this description, just for you, not for the write up. "It is the color of old chocolate." Its a deep brown with a hazy overcast.

I am including photos from my collection. These were taken at a special viewing I was given, I want to use this image at this time for the sake of conversation but not for the archive at this moment. I was given this access because of my professional status and I don't really want it out there, if that is possible.

Photos of actual cloak in non Jelled light:


Flat Pantone: (Not a spectrum)
#48413E



Pantone: (Light Spectrum-what its going to do when it hits light)



Please ask me questions.

We'd rather not get so specific as to say 'this pantone color' in the standards, so we need to use a more generic color descriptor like 'olive-brown' or 'grey-brown' or something like that.

But thanks for the careful analysis and the pictures for discussion. Smile

Maybe it would be helpful to include a note like (approximately pantone #48413E), which would give people a good color reference but not lock them in in a way that becomes too restrictive.
