The term 'drape' can be used in two contexts:1. Generally how a fabric hangs (e.g. in a smooth line). Usually correlated with weight but clearly something that is stiffly woven will not hang well, whereas there are lightweight fabrics that exhibit drape.2. The 'drape' cut, exemplified by Anderson & Sheppard. A suit made with additional allowance over the upper chest and shoulder blades, giving freedom of movement and comfort but also a distinctive aesthetic.
