If someone is wearing a cloak, is it that we should say 'with a cloak'?

Can we say 'in a cloak'?

Please kindly advise. Thanks!

    I assumed you meant "the man wearing the cloak".

    The man in the cloak is Mr Smith.
    He's wearing it.

    If you use "with" the cloak, it can also mean that he's just holding it, or taking it somewhere. It depends on your context.
