Today's word is cap-a-pie, spelled C-A-P-A-P-I-E.
Cap-a-pie is an adverb that means from head to foot. Here is the word used in a sentence from the Portland ~~ of Maine by MD harbon. It's only in cartoons that crews have yellow ~ and feet. They are of one shade cap-a-pie black as midnight and fleet of wing. Think of an evil night to riding off to battle completely encased from head to foot as a word in-armor.Nights thus out feated were set to be armed cap-a-pie.
The term cap-a-pie which has been used in English since at least 16th century decends from the middle French phrase Du-cap-a-py meaning from head to foot. Nowadays it's generally extended to more figurative armor as in armored cap-a-pie against criticism. Cap-a-pie has also been created with parenting another English phrase.

Some people think the expression applepie order meaning perfect order may have a regionated as a corruption of cap-a-pie order. The evidence for that thoery is far from orderly, however, and it must be regarded as speculative.
