Azorean capotes: they exist. Here, we can see one looming over Chelsea at the New Bedford Whaling Museum.
Allow me to expand.
The strange capote-e-capelo. A large cape that covered a woman’s figure, allowing only a glimpse of her face, the origin of the capote-e-capelo is controversial, Some say that it came from Flanders and others state that it is an adaptation of mantles and cowls that were fashionable in Portugal in the 17th and 18th centuries. In any case, for centuries the capote-e-capelo was a typically Azorean woman’s garment. Varying from island to island in the cut of the cape and the arrangement of the cowl, which in Faial had the extravagant shape of a wedge resting on the shoulders and which jutted out in front for over a palm, the common characteristic of the capote-e-capelo was that it was made of a strong, heavy electric-blue cloth that lasted for generations and was handed down from mothers to daughters. The women of the Azores stopped wearing the capote-e-capelo about 1930-40.
