the guy looks cute with the cape on.


Blogger Lisa Corrigan Egan said ... (9:39 PM) : 

I'm crazy about that color palette on him! And I love how it's an updated sort of plaid.


Blogger The Style Revolution said ... (9:43 PM) : 

Love the cape!


Blogger Aaron Brown said ... (9:44 PM) :

Blogger She Wore It Well said ... (9:48 PM) : 

Loving capes! So warm.


Anonymous The Photodiarist said ... (10:00 PM) : 

Yes. That is the way to wear a cape!


Blogger theartbox said ... (10:07 PM) : 

I think Rumi of fashiontoast has this cape (or a very similar one at least...) haha, interesting to see a guy rock it!


Blogger Issamu Kamide said ... (10:12 PM) : 

i wouldn't really call that a cap right? more like a poncho?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:33 PM) : 

NO, not the poncho!


Blogger Jacqueline said ... (10:39 PM) :

Love this cape! It reminds me of a Mondrian painting from the Yves St. Laurent/Pierre Bergé collection ( sold last year at Christie's. But not to be confused with the famous Mondrian dress by YSL.


Blogger Pookies said ... (11:57 PM) : 

Ah., I like the fabric of the cape, it looks kindof short for him, but he can pull it off, the cape should just a little longer, but cool looking. Thanks for posting! Always interesting to see what you post!



Blogger Ryan said ... (12:02 AM) : 

no capes! had to say it


Blogger May Brady said ... (12:04 AM) : 

Awesome! Beautifully tailored and I love the bold check - great to see on a stylee guy.

A dude in a cape? Best results were had by Batman and Sherlock Holmes...or James Brown and Elvis.


Blogger Felipe-san said ... (1:37 AM) : 

I prefer the double-breasted cape from the lady below. But yes! Capes for men!


Anonymous the duchess of amboy said ... (1:58 AM) : 

Just wanted to say that I check in everyday for inspiration. I have put a link to you on my own blog.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:59 AM) : 

sadly, just not a fan of this. he's not trying enough! while normally, i prefer those that don't try at all!


Blogger Lisa Petrarca said ... (4:03 AM) : 

Seriously lovin' this guys style!


Blogger raul b said ... (4:31 AM) : 

lovley cape!!


Blogger Mamie Canem said ... (4:34 AM) : 

This is quite a feminine cape but that outfit works anyway...


Blogger Isabella-E. said ... (4:37 AM) : 

he's beautiful.


Blogger DC said ... (4:54 AM) : 

As always...beautiful shot, but in this stream of examples on how to pull off the cape look, this shot is the example of what not to do. This looks absurd, as if he was dressing on a cruel dare or randomly pulled garments from, and dressed in, an unlit room.


Blogger sammy wammy said ... (4:58 AM) : 

not sure. looks like a checked toadstool. And like there's not mushroom inside it.


Anonymous Angelo said ... (7:44 AM) : 

I was waiting for men's cape pix but I'm not too sure about it right now... Who knows, maybe I should just jump onto the bandwagon before it gets hip ;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:03 AM) : 

I'm not sure about this either. Perhaps I would have preferred the sweater he's sporting underneath?


Blogger Steve Schnier said ... (8:04 AM) : 

Honestly, no. The proportions are wrong. It looks like he stole the cape from a schoolgirl.


Anonymous Michael1style said ... (9:05 AM) : 

A "Caped Crusader" with Balls of steel! Well done Scott!


Blogger Moi said ... (9:08 AM) : 

Like the cape - it has all my favorite colors. Not sure I'm diggin it on him.


Blogger l´habitué said ... (9:19 AM) : 

The color pallete is beautiful on him and he can totally pull that cape off. Also love his litlle hat.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:51 AM) : 

this is SO unflattering--he no longer has any shoulders. & the leng5h looks like he wore a kids size. Contrast with the fabulous gray one on the girl you photoed--a cape needs some shape, otherwise looks like you cut a neckhole in a tablecloth.


Blogger fashionfauxpas said ... (11:41 AM) : 

Chic bordering on grunge, but probably Burberry... Love it


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:26 PM) : 

He looks very serious about his cape. I think if I saw him I would laugh.

Menswear must at least nod towards practicality. I guess I would buy capes as menswear as replacements for, say, raincoats, in which case they'd be longer. This one is probably worn for warmth but has got to be drafty, being so short. And if it ever got wet it looks like it would smell like a wet sheep.


Anonymous evalyn said ... (1:46 PM) : 

I love capes. This is a good example of how not to wear one. It's too small for him. The two women have it right, he gets it wrong.


Anonymous Cape Police said ... (2:50 PM) : 

no no noooo!


Anonymous davidsl said ... (2:55 PM) : 

not sure about capes on men...unless it's more like an opera cape...on dracula.


Blogger Kathleen said ... (5:01 PM) : 

I like this young man, and recognize him from a previous photograph you took of him during your orange and brown week, as I call it, last month. He is a dream and looks fantastic wearing his cape. For some reason, this man can really pull off a look that for most, would really turn your eye in the other direction. I like his style which to me is raw but somehow polished.


Anonymous fashionsdirtylaundry said ... (5:49 PM) : 

Thank you for focusing on capes-- definitely a garment that has been under-utilized for a long time!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:05 PM) : 

like the colors..but it does look wrong on him. too short. the plaid makes it look too busy along with the wideness and the ruffles..


Blogger Midnight said ... (6:14 PM) : 

Any suggestions of places where one can buy a men's cape that isn't for medieval warriors?!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:22 PM) : 

not feeling it...AT ALL but, good on him though for taking the risk


Blogger Elizabeth said ... (8:37 AM) : 

yes! i love capes. so glad people are wearing them in an absolutely chic way.


Blogger no-more-wire-hangers said ... (9:21 AM) : 

LOVE it!


Anonymous JoyMarie said ... (9:18 PM) : 

I have seen this man on here before and each time I took note of palette issues which causes him to look awash in yellow. From the undertones in his skin to his bleached yellow hair and the pale beige in his cape. It doesn't do much to make him look healthy or well put together but then again that may not be the look he is going for.

Hi Emilio!! but are you??? it'long time that dont'see you.
I love your Capes!!

Blogger Ned said ... (8:16 PM) : 

How do you wear a cape? By just wearing it? Seems like that's the only thing this guy is doing. Unimpressed.
