    When I was 4 I used to wear my superman cape and nothing else all of the time. I guess it was a huge fight for me to put clothes on. All I wanted to wear was my superman cape and cowboy boots.

    It is amazing that I turned out straight.

    Used to wear them all the time. When I was 7. And that Superman outfit still fitted me

    EDIT: Whoa, simultaneous crosspost AND my dad owns that chair. Tyler, that you?

    Outside of halloween... I used to do it playing around the house when I was 10 pretending to be superman. Other than that no. Wearing a cape seriously nowadays? You would have to have something of a grunge look... long gone are the days where a gentleman can wear a cape and suit without looking like hes wearing a costume.

    No. I'll never admit to it.

    If I had the balls to wear a cape I'd surely have the balls to admit to it on the internet.

    I have worn an Opera Cloak to a black tie event once, just for giggles really, and obviously I didn't wear it once I was there. I have worn it for fancy dress a few times as well because it is awesome, but just not necessary in the era we live in.

    If I had an Inverness cape I wouldn't have a problem wearing it when the weather called for it.

    There's only one person on this site who can sort of pull off a cape.
