    And I thought Maori cloaks were a bit like Maori tattoos. Something you earned, not something any old joe could wear.

    No I don't. But I do have some experience supplying feathers for "tradditional" cloaks. Which is why I asked the question to start with.

    I'm sorry, what's up your ass? No one mentioned 'traditional'. You dreamed that up all by yourself. If you don't have anything useful to add go and suck a lemon.
