few people wear suits here, some lawyers don't even wear them.
and now sinnedk, stop with the topic.
not because you don't wear a PONCHO (because is poncho, not pancho... aprende a escribir) or a cape you will start the fire again... kid.
Now this is a mistake I think.
Even in your country 's ( Common Wealth I suppose ?) this is not strange "always and everywhere."
It depends all the time from the contekst.
You do not go in hot pants to the church,
you forget about the ruffled jeans and nikes for the new years reception and, yes,
no furcoats on the beach when the temperatures are above 20 degrees Celsius.
Some things migth not be shared by the majority, but that is a different thing.
Things which are not copied by the majority are not per definition strange.
It migth draw attention and sometimes it does, but this does not have to be always negative.
On the contrary I can say ( No do not tell me these people were only "courteous" to me)
Acceptance has always to do with contekst.
and with combination.
Capes in itself are not ridiculous, that 's my opinion.
But the challenge is all the time how to combine them wel.
I am still looking for this.
And I do admit this combination ( as seen on the pictures) can a lot better.
With or without cape.
But take the cape away and then you take the challenge away.
That will be the easiest way but then you will not discover something new.
I migth be wrong but if this forum is only to confirm what we already think or like,
there will never be discovered something which is really innovating and new.
As long as I do consider capes as stylish, elegant and timeless
I will go for that challenge, not because I am personally obsessed by it
but because designers here try to re - style and re - introduce them also for men.
And I think men 's fashion did lost a lot of nice items.
Not only "funny" looks.
Also admirable looks. And appreciation.
People do not happen to have all together the same fashiontaste.
They differ in it.
This forum proves it also by the way.
But the credo here has sung a little bit too long to my humbe opinion
that the border here lies by the acceptance of the cape for men.
Do not cross that border..............!
For my opinion a better one but we are not talking here actually about the capes for men.
Is not it all about fear by men being a a little different from others ?
I think fashion needs men without fear to come to new things.
Without borders. Yes, because if at forehand you draw borders,
you will imprison innovation.
Try outs in reality will prove most of the time if new things get trough or not.
The criterium : one has to feel comfortable on the street.
The criterium is not : you are "out of place" if you happen to get 'a funny look'.
This migth even happen without cape.
If the fear for "funny looks" should be the criterium,
my advice is : try to dress as average as possible.
Do not do things which arouse deligthement or disapprovement.
Stay for ever in the middle.
And have a slowly fashiondead.
Have a good laugh.
But I should like to laugh with you.
Give some more explanation if you like.
A pity I can't see your trousers or shoes.
The picture is too far away taken to be able to give a correct judgement about your sweater and shirt.
But as far as I can see it from a distance : it looks good.
What a pity your face cannot be seen.
In general : to judge if a combination makes a person stylish or elegant etc.
I would prefer to see the colour of the eyes and the hair.
Do call me old - fashioned but I think they are also determinant in a way
if a combination goes well by a certain person or not.
It 's actually the first outfit I see : Looks promising, if not to say beautiful ! Well done !
I was wondering about the colour of the belt, your socks and your shoes. May be you can tell something more ?
( What is it al the time people do not show their faces ? I reget it because colour of the eyes and hair are als - for me - determinant if a combination goes well with a certain person. If this is for privacy - reasons I do respect this ofcourse )
You naugthy boy..........!
