    What a gentleman! Very elegant this cape, and I love the color. For a little second I thought it is Jack Nicholson.

    Elegant and refined. Amazing. I wish I lived in a place where men dressed like this.

    A cape, that is awesome, I did a double take when I first looked at the photo.

    Excellent photo of a very stylish man, crossing place Vendome wearing a loden cape and croc’ loafers (?).
    That’s “sprezzatura”, again !

    I thought it was Jack Nickelson too.
    Anyway , classic with a twitch.

    Don’t think the loden cape would work so well without those killer crocodiles…

    So artistic! The cape is great I agree but the icing on the cake are the shoes for me and the way they match the tie. This is style in all its beauty!

    the loafers are a little incongruous. Loving the DB though.

    Tenue raffinée…les mocassins, très beaux, sont assortis à la cravate ! (je ne pense pas que ce soit du croco…?)

    la photo a pu saisir un joli mouvement de la cape, chouette photo !

    Don’t like the cape, the rest looks like standard-issue financial district.

  35. johnnyfavorite

    March 7, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    I still cannot get on board with the idea of loafers with a double-breasted suit. To me it’s like mixing your metaphors.

  36. Grey Fox

    March 7, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    I haven’t seen a cape like this for years. It lifts an otherwise unremarkable style.

    I love this look. I want to rock a cape so bad, how come it seems so hard to be able to pull this off state side?

    That cape is just pure elegance! I love it!

    Wow. Just shows, anything is possible. I was actually thinking of this awhile back. Great shot.

    Thousand dollar shoes! I got a pair on sale in Georgetown years ago – one of the best things I’ve ever had. Then… my feet grew… *snifff*…

    I think the cape and the gentleman both look great, but there’s something about this that screams “LOOK AT ME!!” a little too much and too loudly for my taste.

    Remember that episode of Seinfeld, in which George is flummoxed over why his father was talking to “a man in a cape”?

    It was funny due to the oddity of the IDEA of a “man in a cape.” And here is such an elegant example.

    Very interesting to see someone wearing a cape, I noticed one on show at Pitti Uomo and was wondering if I was going to see someone wearing something similar, of course it had to be in Paris!

    Wonderful style and elegance, the trademark of successful men’s style.

    Cesare Cunaccia: elegance as attitude (marvelous evidence of the genuine aesthetics of elegance, a state of mind, a way of being, strictly connected to a vibrant ethic under the sign of uniqueness).

    Ooozing style, luxury and money. Great photo once again. Those are some huge lapels on that jacket, and loafers with a DB? Wouldn’t be my choice, but hey when you clearly have style and confidence like this guy does (and very expensive clothing/shoes), I’m sure he doesn’t care what people like me think!
