Now this is truly a beauty, tho' only for the most daring and affluent gents here, I'm afraid. And just for the tall ones. Being a cape, not a coat or mac, a chap as short as me would look like a bolivian coffee picker in it. It's an italian designer piece and you won't get it for less than 1.000 $.



I just absolutely howled at the Bolivian coffee picker comment GS. Genius!

As for the cape - I'm not sure
It's not the cost of the suit that counts, it's the worth of the man inside it

Well, Ian, as I said it takes a lot of self-confidence -and stature, yes- to get away with a cape, but I'm sure that a tall, slender guy would look sharp in it. For us coffee pickers a cheap poncho will suffice  ;).

Nah he was a s**t striker for us. Only scored a couple of goals. Don't think wearing some weird cape would have improved his shocking return on investment. May he rot in the lower leagues!

Ah you mean the debonair master of spies John STEED. I thought you meant hapless journeyman footballer JON Stead, currently plying his trade at Notts County!

I agree, such a cape would have suited him well... if he could afford it with Her Majesty's Secret Services wages, that is.
