Who likes capes?

Having a look through the screenshot thread and there are very few capes. The look people seem to be hapy with are rather cape-less.

Now it could be that many people are low level but more than one person has stated they are keeping there spider set armour for the forseeable future.

Now I could imagine something like a long jacket for concealing weapons etc, but many of the armour sets look like something out of marvel comics. At worst I will use a cape thats the same width all the way down.

The force users have a fair bit of tradition when it comes to clothing, and the trooper has tank plating to paint and arrange as deemed necessary. The smuggler wears what the general population wears, with extra holsters and pockets.

So what do you think? Do you like these capes or prefer something that would blend in at cantina on tatooine.

Edit: Some examples.
Long jacket "Western Look" I dont mind these.
Utility Like these as well. (What I currently wear at level 36)
Cape begining to look like going to fancy dress.
Superman I seem to be seeing nothing but this as I level, I hope high level != cape.

Many people like 'the western look'.
Problem is a cape isn't very western is it.
Trenchcoat = Western
Cape = Batman

Added some examples I to prevent confusion to my original post.

I know its a long way down on priorites but I hope that more utility and western type gear gets added in the future.

I've been rocking the Synthmesh Battle Jacket since I first ran through Hammer Station (I think that's where I got it, it was a long time ago). I just love the trenchcoat look.

I do not, however, like the trenchcoats that have the ridiculously huge, poofy collar; they look like pimp coats. Also, capes are lame, let the Jedi's pretend to be super heroes.

Add the smuggler cowboy hat and you've got my "end-game" char. I also got the fancy pvp cape, but i only wear it when i am pvping cuz i so dont like the look.

Lets hope they add better epic mods so i can keep using the utility vest, if not then i'll just have to switch my wardrobe around to look great when i am idling and have usefull stuff on when doing other stuff.

I'm not really sure how to classify my favorite look. It's not really "Western" 'cause I don't particularly like dusters, but it does have a calf-length kind of coattail in the back. I'm wearing the Clan Varad Watcher's Jacket. I'm modding that until the end of time, haven't found anything else I even remotely like yet.

I like all of those looks except the "Superman". That one just makes you look like Lando, and I could care less for his outfit.
