Capes - good or bad?

While working out I happened upon a Seinfeld episode in which Jerry and Elaine spy George's father talking to a man dressed in a cape. Jerry and Elaine came to the conclusion that no one should ever wear a cape. Even though I have given this cape revival a lot of thought I have not made up my mind. It’s a different way to wear a coat and some look so snuggly. But I fear that some people look a little to "superheroisc."


When I reflect on capes I think of children running around. Their arms holding the capes as they swoosh in the wind. Maybe after trying some on my childhood will come rushing back. There are so many adorable looking capes in all different lengths, shades and styles. What do you guys think?

Here are just a few that have caught my eye:
