Who is this man and what is he wearing?
The man is Aleister Crowley.
He is wearing Ordo Templi Orientis regalia.
(Freemasonry has, and always has had, aprons and jewels as their regalia, as compare to the OTO, who wear sashes as in the picture.)
He wasn't a Mason. Apart from a few fanatic religious sites, there's hardly a single site on the Web who says he was. Even Wikipedia says he wasn't a Freemason. Moreover, even most religious fanatic sites have removed the claim that he was.
In fact, you're probably the only person left making that claim.
