An ulster was a long, loose overcoat, usually belted and originally made of Irish frieze. It was worn by Victorian men as a working daytime overcoat with a cape and sleeves. After the Edwardian period it lost its cape but continued to be used as a heavy-duty overcoat, often in a double-breasted style.
