Riddle and a Rose


Brilliant roses and a jet black cat...
which reminds me of a riddle my father in law once told me.  
He was more a grandfather to me than anything else. 
Any way, here it goes in Spanish:

Hace un rato paso un galan por aqui,
todo vestido de negro,  
no cosido con aguja, 
ni cortado con tijera.   
Que es?

Translation:
A while ago, a handsome creature came by here;
all decked out in black,
his were clothes were not sewn with a neddle
nor were they cut with scissors.   
Who is he?
