This buffalo check cape brings out my nostalgia for the 1980’s. If you get the reference from the post title (and my Instagram caption), then you know about early hip hop-new wave single by Malcolm McLaren.

Here’s the Buffalo Gals video (circa 1982!):

Did you recognize the big hat? Same hat style that Pharrell is sporting these days. Courtesy of the incomparable Vivienne Westwood, whose clothes are featured in the Buffalo Gals video.

Another music video that came to mind showed much love for buffalo checks, thanks to Norma Kamali, 1984’s Chaka Khan’s I Feel For You. Take a look:

I am so glad I got this cape when it was still available online. I knew it was something special. It’s intended for cool but milder temps (say upper 40’s through the 50’s), but I could totally wear it cab to curb (limited winter outdoor exposure) or maybe even indoors over a lighter layer underneath.

Are you sporting capes or buffalo checks? I’d love to hear about it. Enjoy your Tuesday! xx
