Philip Zimbardo, but they must have been in fashion at some point.What's the point of capes? I know people don't really wear them any more, unless they are vampires or
All a cape does is cover your back in a thin layer of cloth. Why? For warmth? Because I've never really heard anyone complain about having a cold back.1 "Brrrr, my back is freezing! I wish I had a piece of cloth awkwardly tied around my neck to cover it up!"
The front side is the one that's usually sensitive to cold, so clothing is best layered on that side. That's why I propose that the reverse-cape come into fashion. It'd be a bit shorter than most capes, to prevent tripping issues, and double as a way of keeping bits of food, globs of mustard, and Cheeto dust off your shirt. Style and function. Also known as a bib.
1 Unless they are giving someone the cold shoulder BWAHAAAAHAAHAAAHAAAAAAAA!!!!
