    "why are you wearing a black sweater under the linen shirt :confused:"

 

Fear my raw masculinity.

 

He says, wearing that outfit... biggrin.gif

Summer is so rare here, it's hard to resist being costumey when it finally arrives!

Holdfast, liked the second picture more.

No. I am pushing nothing.

I have always said : If you don't like them, do not wear them.

I only wondered what kind of obstacles men who do like to wear capes have to confront

when they want to buy one or they want to wear one. That 's all.

I am not here to convert people.

I was directing myself to men who  already do think in  the same ( positive ) way 

about the re - styling and the re - introduction of the mancape by famous fashiondesigners in Europe.

It was not my intention to involve forummembers who have nothing with the issue.

 

I should say : if it is really  not your subject, please be so courteous not to interfere.

And try to be a gentleman and do not  make things all the time ridiculous.

 

Some members of the forum here likes to present the whole issue as a personal hobby of me.

They do not even seem to know about the recent developments in the big European fashionhouses.

I do not think they even want to know.

They only want to hear and want to see what they already believed : capes are out of time and ridiculous.

If you keep on telling that to yourself and others, it becomes a belief.

This belief here has its own life and do not dare to say or to show other things about it :

So may be its better to let people stay in their own belief and perception of reality.

It will make them feel probably much more comfortable.

 

I hope you did get your reply.

As a counterpoint to F. Corbera's recent post of the painting of the Earl in a cape, here is a modern incarnation.

Excellent drape, and there appears to be a good bit of handwork. Also, considering the beautiful specimen in the left background, what about modern use of parasols?

The first, as you can see, graces a black tie ensemble.


Brooks Bros? Really? REALLY?!?!?!?

When Daisy first presented the poncho to me, I truly thought she had overpaid. How much better could it be than the Bulldog-emblazoned poncho I had purchased at a recent rainy Yale-Dartmouth game. But when I first broke out the Brooks Brothers poncho during the rainstorm that hit our July 3 celebration, I felt full on the difference. Whereas the unlined Yale poncho had left me feeling sticky with my own perspiration, the BB poncho left me dry and did not hamper my movements in any way. Further, the military rank motif (both enlisted and general officer) provided an appropriately patriotic look for the occasion. Lastly, the color went much more appropriately with my linen jacket and lobster shorts than the Yale Blue.

Sounds like someone who interviewed to write product descriptions for J. Peterman but was denied the position.

More of the same. Not interesting.

When they do, they will drift gracefully from aloft and alight on one's shoulders.

Try that with an overcoat.

I'm pretty sure that Keggy the Keg wrote that review, and that it wasn't a real Yalie.

BTW, starting now through COB tomorrow, I only want to see caped* looks in this thread.

Thanks.


* Ponchos okay as well.
