Cool Capes

Hey guys,
I was looking through heaps upon heaps of early Grim Dawn stuff (artwork, the first ever screenshots, etc.) and came upon this gem:



Which got me wondering: Have the CE devs ever considered capes as possible items for GD? As I see it, capes could be very aesthetically- and fictionally-cool shoulder slot items to find in-game.
For example, one might find a sleek, shadowy mantle whilst battling Ch'thonic cultists, which could have some dark, ritualistic lore about it. Or, while up in the hills of Act 2 fighting outlaws, a tattered cloak of tartan design called Highlander's Cape could drop.



These are all just ideas of course, and if it required any new animations (to make them flutter, etc.) I would obviously not push the idea knowing it would delay release. However, for the initial version of GD, simply having capes in-game would be a treat, for me at least.
I would love to hear this great community's thoughts on this suggestion, and maybe if the CE devs like it enough they will consider following it up as well.
Cheers for reading yet *another* one of my item proposal threads, and enjoy your upcoming weekends all!

I must have posted that one after having seen that first image in my OP of this thread, because that's what "inspired" me to post this new one haha. And yeah, post #6 details the one major issue I could possibly see happening with capes, but at least there is general support for the idea.
