It is decorated and partly shaped with rows of parallel ridges formed by stitching the cloth in pleats on each side towards the lower edge. The front opening is edged with lace. This is trimmed with red piping, which also runs along the centre of the hood from brow to nape. It is lined with twill-woven woollen cloth.
