Does anyone know where they still sell blue or grey (Litvishe) Kapotas? A light gray would be ideal for the summer? I’ve only seen them in black. Thank you.

I know it’s a bit late for Purim this year. But for the future, does anyone know where they might have sold inexpensive knock-off Kapotas for Purim? I suspect a place in Boro Park or Flatbush might have carried them.
Mendy Satcho at Primo on Kingston Avenue is the place to go. They will fix you up with either grey or black in silk, wool or a lightweight blend for as little as $400 or up to $1,000. You can order online and specify size/length and even select button styles. I haven’t seen “blue” but perhaps their “black” fabrics may also include some dark blues shades.
They started making stylish kapotas??
Get a Rebbishe bekishe, instead. They come in all kinds of colors.
They made kapotas in other colors in the past. When the goyim stopped wearing them (roughly a century ago, when King George stopped wearing them), demand fell, and at present the bulk of the demand is for black (meaning anything else is probably a special order that will cost more).
A rebbishe bekishe is great for Fashion Week in Bryant Park (back live in September) or a Purim Parade on 13th Avenue but I sense this poor guy is not looking to make a fashion statement but simply wants a comfortable and well fitting litvishe kappota.
