A- not so much; B- I think Alan Rickman would look good in almost anything! C- not so much, again; Did you realize C and D are the same link? E- no… and F- see my answer on B:-) I do like a long coat on a man, but I think the type I like the looks of is more of a western style. I can’t find a good image to link; I mean the kind of coat with the little mini cape thing that just covers the top of the shoulders.

Meh. Depends on the man, I suppose, and if I find them sexy in a long coat, I generally find them sexy in pretty much everything else, too. It certainly requires a certain body type. And outside of certain period pieces, capes are just silly.

Severus Snape is pretty awesome, I agree. I remember watching the Harry Potter movies and loving the capes. It made me want to walk briskly with one of those swishy capes everyone wore. Turning corners would be a blast.

@ccrow Thanks, and oops! This Picture was supposed to be Exhibit C.

They look fabulous.

Kardamom's avatar

@Blondesjon Why am I guessing, that you might own a cape?

@syz & @Seek_Kolinahr How could anyone not? It’s inconceivable.

Not in Phoenix, Arizona. It’s much too warm here to wear that kind of clothing, even in Winter. On the other hand, if I drive 3 hours up to Flagstaff, then I’d make any cape or trench coat look good and keep warm in the process.

Appropriate and interesting wardrobe for each movie, yes.

Awesome—no. I’ll reserve that adjective for something more important.

Sexy, but I prefer this man in his poncho. :0)

Not particularly. None of those guys did a single thing for me.

You had me at Alan Rickman…

Berserker's avatar

Aye, that I do.
I love Danny Trejo. So much.

Also when I saw Sleepy Hollow as a teen, I thought that Ray Park was totally hot. With his head of course. I denno why but he reminds me of Vegita from Dragon Ball Z.
Anyways I couldn’t find a good picture of him online in the role of the Headless Horseman, but ripped up, rotted tattered rags are just as great as trenchcoats and capes, yo.

And this last guy isn’t a real person, he’s from a video game, but if he was real… The son of Dracula.
The artist who made this goes by the name of Ayami Kojima, and I fell in love with her artwork years ago, so Alucard totally counts.
