Beautiful Outfit Sir, not wacky at all IMHO. In fact I think it has a lot of class TBH.

Maybe that review is supposed to be in the person of Nick Carraway from the Great Gatsby? He's definitely a Yalie who would be gifted something by someone named Daisy.

If so, that is a brilliant piece of product review trolling.

PIGEON,

You keep citing European fashionhouses and runway.

That's where the capes belong, along with the designerwear photos observed in this thread.

Well, to answer your question, I need to go back...way back...to the Big Bang.
Since that point, it seems that the universe has been going from states of higher order to states of greater disorder. This condition of entropy offers a clue of why time moves only forward. Time never moves backward.
You're with me so far, right?
Okay: this brings us to powdered wigs.
Here is a digital image of a remarkable painting:
1000
[note: real painting is much bigger than what appears on your computer or cell phone screen.]
Portrayed is the Earl of Buckinhamshire, by Gainsborough. He wears a powdered wig, but also a fabulous ermine cape.
As a man with a regal bearing myself, I easily recognize it in others. And I see it here. The Earl is on the old and nearly dead side as shown in the painting, true, but he looks really great.
Now, should then a man today wear a powdered wig? In other words, to find a point at which such a wig looks pretty cool, I would have to reverse the state of entropy in which the Big Bang left us.
The same, I fear, is true of the cape...ermine or otherwise.
Will I defy entropy? No sir, this I will not do.
And neither should others, or so say I.

I do not know your age Sir, or where you are living.

Your profile says nothing about it.

 

But if you happen to be in the same state of health now as the Earl you described on the picture

I will not advice you to go to for a change to a European fashion show (Paris, Milan)

The confrontation with what the European trolls have breeded out this time

migth be too much for you and  I am the last here who wants to overask people.

A pity though : it could have broaden your mind but may be its too much asked for the moment.

I can live with it and probably - and that is more important -  you too.

 

That said,  I must give you  a compliment for your answer :  really high quality prose and humor of a high level !

Do call me old - fashioned because I still do wear capes, but nevertheless I can appreciate it.Thanks.

We can not settle for "old fashioned" because it is such an understatement.

Whitepigeon, I wanna see a new picture of you wearing a cape! Do you have a black one?

I think you are rigth when it concerns the cape -  pictures of Sir Corbera.Even I do agree with that. Impossible to disagree with that.

But I hope you do  disagree with me that automatically  all pictures of men wearing capes today do belong to this collection.

That is, if I may say so, a bridge too far.

Have a look at the picture album of this Fall / Winter 2012 and tell me your opinion.

 

( Good heavens do the European Fashionhouses have such a bad name in this forum ..........?)

I don't know. I think Donald Trump could rock one.

You must know ( if you are from Australia) it comes from Dame Edna. She used it very efficient to relativate her  own opinions and caused many times good laughs with it !
