The fabric composition leaves a lot to be desired. 88% polyester, 10% rayon, and 2% spandex is what I call "ersatz wool;" it has the look of brushed wool but is just a synthetic substitute lacking both warmth and durability. Many "junior" brands, like BB Dakota and XOXO, use this affordable fabric for mild weather outerwear.
As for fit, junior brands tend to run a bit small but this style is oversized so you might consider sizing down instead. I was wearing the size S here, if you can use me as a point of reference.
The buttons, somewhat large, are black and blend seamlessly into the cape; the self-belt is removable.
I have a few additional cape reviews planned (this MK one wasn't a keeper) but didn't find much success. After I burn off those pictures, I may just hold out for new options next fall.
