First appearance: Spawn
Year: 1997
Looks like: Rick Owens' conscience.

Spawn’s costume might not be much, but his cape is pretty serious. And from what we've see in the runways from the likes of Saint Laurent, John Varvatos, and Valentino, capes are creeping back into menswear starting this fall. With that much flow and the high collar, it's a welcome take on the street goth look. He's the good guy king of drapey clothing.
