    From the very first moment he swaggered up to Princess Leia in his Cloud City chic, Lando Calrissian single-handedly raised the bar for fashion in a galaxy far far away.





    In a new video posted by Star Wars Brasil, the future Baron Administrator seems to have always had an eye for style. 'Lando's cape is definitely his most important fashion accessory', says Donald Glover, adding that he probably 'has about 80 capes'. That's a lot of closet space. Of course, that number might dwindle over the course of Solo: A Star Wars Story as clips in this featurette reveal a fire onboard the Millennium Falcon that Q'ira rushes to extinguish - with the aid of Lando's outfits.



    Clothes truly make the man and much can be said about any man - super or not - who sports a cape on the daily. In his own words: 'It's fashion at its very core. It's unnecessary. But nice'.

    Of course, not everyone can appreciate the way a good cape ties an outfit together. 'Your scarf? Not my style' quips Han. Bold words for a man who walks around wearing a black vest covered in Wookiee hair.



    Check out the full video below for the one thing everyone can't seem to get enough of: more Lando.

    Well, Lando is likely modelled on the 19th Century fashion of the Dandy and its subsequent influences on black culture so this is not entirely surprising.

    "For Black men, fashion choices can be a matter of life or death," Shantrelle P. Lewis wrote in her book [Dandy Lion: The Black Dandy and Street Style]. "For dandies, dress becomes a strategy for negotiating the complexities of Black male identity, and the suit can be a form of armor, although not bulletproof."

    "By looking sharp, the Black dandy fashions a sense of pride, positivity, and self-worth that can transcend circumstances, as well as societal perceptions," she continued. "He defies monolithic understandings of what it is to be a man -- particularly a Black man -- through a colorful and complex dance between race, class, gender, power and style."
