    Good to hear everyone's opinion.

    I think it looks cool

    What do you think OP?
    I'm not feeling the Zara one, reminds me of Willie off the Simpson.



    I do like the brown ones off the GQ post, just not sure if I've got the balls/occasion to wear one.

    I think it can be done. This guy pulls it off
    The Statement Poncho feat. Steven Santander | TSBmen

    It's not for everyone (including me), but wouldn't turn my nose up at someone who was trying it out.

    I might try this for a festival in the summer or something

    I would expect to get mocked if I rocked up to the pub like it

    Yeah, so I was down in London at Paul Smith buying for AW14 and picked up a manket from their Red Ear collection.



    Thoughts?

    I'm into it man. You're not wearing it quite right though imho, needs to look more like in the OP

    Went to buy a McQueen one I had my eye the other day but it had been sold when I got to the store

    But other than that. No. And, looking the pictures, except for Superman's Scottish cousin, I'd say there's a definite hobo-factor to it.
    Make a point with the idea of going for a fag when wearing one. Prefer using a smoking jacket though...

    No.

    Couldn't get it quite right at the time but will defiantly go full manket look when it arrives. McQueen one looks decent, shame you couldn't get it.

    Yeah, you're wearing it more like a giant scarf there. But yeah, fuck it, go for it. Look forward to seeing a proper outfit with it incorporated.

    Love the jacket btw. Bet you're getting a lot of wear out of it.
