Post your favorite example.

Should tunic/caftan crossover be allowed? Do we need a poll?

    Is this an over-mumu or a short caftan? I know what the website calls it but I'm trying to understand the over-mumu.

    You know, it's proving to elude description, eche.

    I vote caftan. I think an over-mumu has more structure.

    What does everyone else think?

    I'd say that's more of a caftan? These over-muumuus are open in front.

    I kind of like the above garment, actually

    Check out the last comment in the discussion area: What is a Caftan?

    Sounds like the differentiator is the open front.
  • This is really more of a long jacket, but wow:

    I think the "shirt jacket" is what I think of when we're talking about over-muumuus:

    See...I totally love a long military jacket like that. I wish the sleeves weren't so long and that she wasn't wearing that dumb hat and hooker boots, and with all that brass, you don't need additional jewelry, but otherwise, I would wear that.

    No effing way. No way could anyone but Michael Jackson, Prince, or Liza (& her impersonators) wear that. (Or someone playing a role in H.M.S. Pinafore.)

    I'm calling your bluff. I want to see a pic of you, in that jacket. Otherwise, it's all just talk, rcw.

    Ever since the sports thread wars I have sensed a special connection between [edit] & Wile. Like the connection oil has to water. I almost can't speak of it. Wait....my eyes are misting. ~asq

    Heh...

    I'm not saying I own one, just that, IF I could find one that fit me properly, I'd wear it.

    On Fashion Police this look was described as representing all the Jacksons (Michael, Tito, LaToya, etc).

    It's a tribute jacket!

    I think a person has to be able to do a complete dance spin and hold a note while waving a hand before she/he can lay claim to wearing that jacket.

    I don't understand! Are you talking about a Mrs. Roper style caftan?

    Oh, how I loved Blanche. I hope I'm as hot as her in 40 years.

    I guess I'm unsure what an "over-mumu" is, exactly. Over or under, isn't a mumu simply a mumu?

    I picture the traditional Hawaiian muumuu, like this:

    muu_kahuna.jpg

    And, LOL at Mrs. Roper!!! :laughing7:

    It's like a muumuu (shape moreso than print) in jacket form.

    "Golden Girls" was the first thing I thought of when trying to figure out what this over-mumu could be.

    If ever a woman deserved a boy toy, it's Mrs. Roper.

    Also, the name "Norman Fell": also a sentence.

    Okay, I think I understand what you mean now. But wouldn't that be more like a caftan?

    I thought that a muumuu didn't open in the front. :dontknow:

    That's why it's an over-muumuu!

    Gotta cover that muumuu with something...
