 The "garment down to the foot," with which He was clothed, indicates not activity of work, but rather dignified priestly judgment.

 He sees what characterized the Ancient of days. Dan. 7:9,13. In Daniel, the Son of man is led to the Ancient of days, and receives the dominion. In Revelation 1:14, Jesus, the Son of man, has the character of the Ancient of days. (Notes on Revelation 1 by J.N. Darby)

JND Translation Notes

d
Or "a Son of man." See Dan. 7.13, also without the article. It is not likeness to a person John knew, but to the character known by this title in scripture. To have seen angels in heaven would have been no wonder, but to see one as "Son of man" was. This chapter corresponds to Dan. 7. only now he was seen on earth. It was the title the Lord habitually took. This made it personal; but in Daniel, though surely the same person, it was characteristic. Here, too, it is characteristic. Still the person designated is now known, and it is difficult to say "a Son of man," because of excluding this. "Son-of-man-like" is feeble, it might only mean a manner. see ch. 14.14.

aand in the midst of the [seven] lamp-stands one like the Son of man, clad in a garment down to the foot, and girt about at the paps with a golden girdle:

a
in the midst: AC. have ἐμμέσῳ, B. and most others ἐν μ. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.4)
[seven]: AC., 12. 28. 38. 45. Er., several Vv. and Ff. omit ἐπτά, which B. and most others insert. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.4)
[seven]: Rec. Gr. Kn. and Sz. read ἐπτὰ., Ln. Tisch. and Treg. omit. (Prospect 1:153)
like: For ὄμοιον A. has ὀμοίωμα, (and so one Latin and two Slavonic mss.) (Rev. of John, 1860, p.4)
the: The article is wanting in Greek to indicate the character in which Christ was seen: "a son of man" therefore is too vague and not the sense. If the article had been inserted, it would have conveyed the idea of Him as the known person whom John loved and followed on earth, rather than the character in which he appeared now. (Lect. on Rev., p.21)
the: though the text ("a son of man") seems literally faithful, John 5:27 ought to have made not only the Revisers [of 1881] hesitate as to their text but our Transatlantic friends [American correctors of the RV] still more doubt the wisdom of their rejecting the marg. note. The Greek, like the Chaldee of Dan. 7, has not the article as is notorious, because the aim is to describe the human character of the glorious person that was seen, rather than to point to Him as a known object. Our language fails to reflect this characterizing force of the anarthrous phrase; for if we say "the," it makes the person as such more prominent than the original warrants; if we say "a," it excludes Him who was well understood to be seen in the character of Son of man, which we can express better in the Gospel than here. The Father gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He is Son of man, though He is also Son of God and as such gives life to every one that believes. Here, in John's great prophecy, it is more difficult to set it out adequately in English, and one can hardly avoid saying "the" Son of man, though in italics or brackets or some such expedient, to show that it is not in Greek but due to the exigencies of our tongue. But as "a son of man" in the Revised text falls short of the truth, so the omission of the marg." in 13 by the Americans is a bolder departure still as giving up a truer alternative. The insertion of the article in Greek would have spoiled the real bearing of both passages. How to give the best possible English equivalent may be questionable; but "a son of man" is not the sense meant either in Dan. 7 or Rev. 1 any more than in John 5. (Bible Treasury 15:176)
Son: υἰῷ is read by AC. and many more, υἰόν by B. and about thirty cursives. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.4)
the Son of man: [See note to Rev. 1:8]
down to the foot: A. and 11. give ποδήρην, BC. and the rest ποδήρη. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.4)
paps: μαζοῖς A. and eight cursives, Compl.; BC. and the rest μαστοῖς (μασθοίς 7. 29. 97.) (Rev. of John, 1860, p.4)
golden: χρμςῆν B. and most, -ᾶν, AC. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.4)
