Fw: What's a Biff? #unitedkingdom

Levy <levy@...>

On reading the Laws of the Exeter Hebrew Congregation (1823) I was intrigued
with Law 22 that states -
'The hazan must not be in shul in time of service without his Mantell Biff
and Hat, subject to a fine of 2/6 for each offence.'
Can anyone clarify what is meant by a Biff?
