Long velvet cloak. Hood. Etched silk velvet. Edge of cloak is lined with a brown fir that locals are identifying as possum, a local New Zealand menace.
A gold tone clasp is tied closed with cord.
The clock is 3 pieces, shaped so that it is long enough to fall most of the way to the floor and full enough to close... unlike many other cloaks used in LOTR.
Color description confired from swatch card (megan): is a deep maroon/brown colour, very like dark, dark port wine. The background (where the design is burnt out) is the same colour, but because it's only mesh (no pile left), the colour is less pronounced. What they lined it with is producing the black colour. As for the velvet itself, it's quite short-pile; I was surprised as the nap is very low.
Leather surcoat and belts
Outer surcoat is a knubby black leather, slightly heaver than garment weight. It fastens down the front with 3 ornate clasps from neck to waist. Calf length. It is slit in the back for riding. The waist seam dips in the back (much like we see in the front of Aragorn's Duster). There is a decorate "X" pattern at the seams.
It is sleeveless. Arm openings are little more than slits on the side.
Decorative trim runs down the front and edges the sleeve opening.
The chain maille is really just sleeves of maille attached onto a black undershirt at the upper arm. Arm edge of maille appears to have a bit of a design. (see picture below)
This black "shirt" is part of the "movie" under fabrics, like Gandalf's sweater sleeves and Legolas' shirt.
We only see this a few times. He probably does not wear this all the time (because of heat) and it is only worn when the vambraces are off.
The fabric is blue-grey with just an occasional bit of silver embodied "stars" to highlight it. This is stitched into a pattern of squares arranged diagonally like diamonds. (This color is confirmed by Ty at the NZ exhibit)
There are 3 sits of silver grommets on the inside seam that laces this closed.
Note, the blue bit of "shirt" we see in the shots of the funeral dummy from the London exhibit are seen no where else. This may just be there to hide the joints on the dummy hands.
Grey shirt under the chain mail.
