To cape or not to cape? That is the question.
I like the look of these funny armless creations but are they practical? Does the wind sneak up from the hem and freeze your nips off? Do you feel restricted because your arms are stuck underneath? Is it necessary to carry your bag in your hand like a gran?
On the plus side you can wear as many layers as you damn well please without looking like an overstuffed sausage or having to force bulky limbs through two small holes.
But will I look like Sherlock Holmes? Thoughts please!
