Yay! I knew I was collecting capes for a reason – or a season!
We like so much capes! Also for men!
Sí al sí quiero

Not sure whether this will translate to the streets but it’ll be such interesting looks!

Eventhough the one from SLP works well, capes on men just won’t happen.

My fav is the one from Ferragamo!
January 24, 2013 at 11:13 am
That ferragamo looks like the ones Arcteryx hands out to the homeless of vancouver.

I love my cape, and just like “skirts”, men will finally realize how comfortable and fun they are.
January 24, 2013 at 12:58 pm
The first two ones because of the “dramatic” effect.

Always love a good cape!

On men? Oh how I love when designers make crap to display that they will sell 3 of…or maybe more, but yet they will be gifts from somebody who think they are stylish..and will never ever be worn…like the Bunny suit in A Christmas Story.

Ok, I thought capes were just “my thing”, I am so mistaken!
So #1: This one reminds me of the fabulous Keith Haring print done in Grace Jones’ “I’m Not Perfect” video. That vid just sums up ’80′s iconography perfectly.

All nice runway numbers, but the one that I really can imagine seeing on the street is the Ferragamo. I think it would look great!
January 25, 2013 at 5:35 pm
Excellent! Capes for men too! Shall show these to my other half. He’s up for trying new looks!

Even the catwalk can’t rock these. Sorry
January 26, 2013 at 2:32 pm
I had one, but gave to my mother… I want it back!
January 27, 2013 at 1:45 pm
in the infamous words of Edna Mode – “no capes”

For all the comments saying that men wouldn’t wear capes: as a man who wears one, I must say that I get complimented on the street about mine, often by other men asking where they can purchase one for themselves!

As a man I do like capes and I wear them : they are timeless and elegant. Although I realise I make a fashionstatement by wearing them now in winter, most people do like it. Actually I never met one who did not like it. But I use the classical full circle black woolen ankle length italian tabarro or a dark blue woolen knee length 3/4 circle army officers cape. Ofcourse I try to pay attention to other fashion accesoires to combine it well. So far it goes well. Both capes I use are timeless and neutral. Fashionhouses try to bring it back in fashion. The best examples of the restyled capes for men are – if you ask my opinion – the ones from Dolce & Gabbana as shown in the Paris Fashion Show january 2012. From the shown examples here on this page I do like the Yves Saint Laurent for young men who like to combine a cape with a casual style and the Valentino example which seems to go more for the more classic way of dressing. The Ferragamo is too much a poncho which I do not like and the Moncler Gamme Bleu whole combination is not my taste at all. I think you look ridiculous that way, but do call me oldfashioned. None of the new designed and restyled capes can however – according to my opinion – compete with the tabarro’s of Tabarrifico Veneto or the capas Espanolas from the house of Sesena in Madrid. Capes for men need to be long and wide. (knee-length or ankle length / half or full circle) These houses follow this trend. It deserves effort however to search for nice combinations (casual, contemporal and classic) which go well with the mancape. The European fashiondesigners can explore on this territory a lot more. A good example are the combinations of A. Tautz shown in the London Fashion Show of last year. Some other good examples ( they are hardly available for men I admit )you can find here :

Love the capes for men. Capes are my passion! It is interesting for men, just as for women, many, have no idea how great they look and feel in them…until they put them on. Capes somehow empower the wearer to step outside their comfort zone. Especially the ankel and floor length pieces. But, one does have to be careful. If you do not choose your cape to suit your personality you may not portray the image you have in mind. There is a cape for everyone so take your time and find the one that suits you best.
