Anachronism: "Capetian Zippers!"?
The direct line of the French ruling House of Capet came to an end in 1328 ... while the zipper was only invented in December of 1913 by Gideon Sundback, a Swedish-American electrical engineer of the Fastener Manufacturing and Machine Company of Meadville, PA, (aka Talon inc.) Not that I'm against handy zippers on my clothes ... Just sayin,' is all! ;-)

It is descriptive and lists zippers so it shouldn't be too much a surprise, but it was meant to be more a steampunk garment which puts it into the late 1800's - early 1900's, around the time of the zipper making an appearance.  Maybe the title threw things a bit referencing some history.  This is more for a steampunk/alternate history.  Sorry, it was not more clear.
