"Ignore capes. There, I've said it. Because truly, what's the point? They are silly. Just silly. Either you can't use your arms at all or your arms stick out of holes at an awkward angle so you look as if you are doing a Punch & Judy show. Plus, anyone who would be impressed by the fact you're wearing a cape if a bit of a prat. Yes, superheroes wear capes, but usually they wear them for flying. Can you fly? Quite. Take it off. Now."
Jess Cartner-Morley in The Guardian Weekend. I didn't want to confront the fact that when it comes to practicality capes are sort of no-go (I've worn mine out only once since I bought it and even then felt like a bit of a twat.) but, well, she said it didn't she? And there's no going back now.
