Vampires used to kick ass.

It's important to remember that at one point in cinematic history, vampires weren't effete teenage Nancys who shopped at Abercrombie and f**king Fitch. Not only was Nosferatu (1922, shown here) a bona-fide monster, but that coat seriously takes names. Great lapels, well-rendered waist suppression, and that extensive number of toggles has a Varvatos-like rock-n-roll edge to it... although it's never explained how he buttons all of those things with those goddamn hands.
