Pith helmets are more Vox and Iammatt's shtick. The lion cloak, while awesome, is incorrect.
A cloak is a very good guess, given my proclivities. But I'll rule out cloaks in all their forms, and will also eliminate the possibility of the mystery item being an Inverness cape.
That said, no one will ever guess. The item itself is not particularly unusual, but certain qualities of the item are very much so.
