Sweet find. A cape? Hilarious. This site is my homepage because it is so good. But if there is one thing I crave, it is a single cutline that explains where the subject is going or coming from. Was this guy going to a job interview or vampire convention?
At first I was going to comment thatI like the vest and cape combo, and then I noticed the tiniest detail that made me fall in love with this outfit completely…the studded leather belt! THAT is a mark of pure genius!
For me the hair leaves something to be desired, but the outfit: sweet sartorial perfection. The studded belt, and knit tie add a nice edge to the outfit, but the two details that interest me are the school-boy cape (any idea what’s on the crest) and the waistcoat; buttoned in such a way that gives this look that certain panache. Well shot Scott, Cheers!
Wow, I really like the emblem on the cape, and I really like the way the dark cap and pants counter the patterned shirt, tie and vest. Also, zoom in on the tie, it’s knit!! A very lovely look overall, I think my favorite accessory to go with a look like this is gorgeous, blonde curly hair though!
What an ensemble of details, from the studded belt to the preppy crest and knitted tie. Thanks to the colour palette and conservative elements like the waistcoat and black pant he’s able to be really playful. Great shot.
Punk rock meets English boarding school, a well-trod path, and he makes it his own. If I’m not mistaken, those are SAFETY PINS he’s using as collar stays…now that says ’1977′. Last time you posted a man-cape, Scott, there was much flak; perhaps tastes are evolving, as everyone likes this combo.
I love the fact that the knot in the tie is secured with a large pin. When I first looked at this picture I thought that he was older simply because of the look on his face and his stance. However, the studded belt makes this look much younger, rakish even.
Am I the only one who thinks the studded belt makes him look like a Hot Topic tool? Maybe its just my own personal bias but that detail killed this look for me. Other than that he is totally pulling off the cape and I love a good knit tie.
So British, but in a good way. I love CRESTS and it was nice that it was emblazoned on a CAPE of all things. Very HP. I also really love KNIT TIES and the fact that he accessorized it with that barely there TIE PIN was genius. Mad Props!
If I am not mistaken-almost everything he is wearing is from Ralph Lauren Rugby. The patch has three crowns in silver thread and reads R.L.F.C. (Ralph Lauren Football Club) across the top. All of the Rugby stores sell these patches and can be out on any piece of clothing. http://www.Rugby.com
the cape serves a purpose, which I find truly satisfying as I have been seeing people wear clothing elements just for the affect of appearing stylish. The lines of the shirt, tie, and vest all pertain to different directions, but thats what makes this outfit truly extraordinary.
He looks great. The photo captures him really well too. Btw, his cape is identical to the ones University students wear at this time of the year in Portugal (both man and woman wear them). Usually we put the insignia of our university on the outside (plus any other insignias of other universities “conquered”- think each date equals one insignia, kind of thing). So, to answer the question from the anonimous above “Who has the balls to wear a cape?” Every university student runs around in one at this time of the year, in Portugal at least. There is no such thing as capes being just for women, or fashion forward people.
This appears to me a very British look, with the cape, vest, tie, stud belt, and pretty-boy curls. The cape gives some preppy appeal, but is offset slightly by the studded belt. The knit tie is a great twist on the classic, especially paired with such a fabulous vest! His cute curls just add to the whole theme of updated British classics!
This is a great look for many special occasions! I’m loving the detail of the leaving the last two buttons on the vest unbuttoned to show the black and white stripped tie meeting the black studded belt – very clever! The cape brings in a dramatic flair! Love the curly hair, but it needs a lil grooming.
Like the people from before said… every item he’s wearing comes from one label– Ralph Lauren Rugby. The cape was fall ’07, and it could fasten at the top with some AMAZING silver skull and bone things, and the knit tie, shirt, belt, waistcoat, and collar pin ALL come from the same line (interestingly enough, considering the contrasting styles of the studded belt vs. the boarding school look).
