The most distinctive things about Henry Cavill‘s appearance in Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel are (a) the subdued rosey-pinkish tone of red in the cape and chest logo, (b) the gray body suit with the criss-cross texture, and (c) the knife pleats fanning out from the shoulder-origin section of the cape. There’s no point in wearing knife pleats unless you drop the suit off at the cleaners each and every time after wearing it. Christopher Reeve and George Reeves‘ Superman capes were more natural looking…they just hung loose.
