Classic or Technical: Essential Outerwear To Dodge Spring Rain

Spring Rain Cometh

How Are You Dodging The Rain Drops?

Like clockwork, we’re in the middle of the spring rainy season. As you dodge unexpected that downpour and your umbrella is blown apart, having the right jacket is key to staying dry. This post features two jackets that every guy should add to their rainy day arsenal.

A belted trench is as classic as it gets in the world of rain gear. Old school versions were as long as dusters and were shaped like a cardboard box. Today, with a more tapered silhouette and shortened length, you can rock this trench over a suit to the office or on the weekend with a pair of distressed jeans

How To Buy A Modern Trench Coat

  • Unless you’re going for theRick Astleylook, you don’t want to be swimming in your trench. Like purchasing a suit, the shoulders of your coat should hug your shoulders
  • No matter your height, your trench should fall just above the knee or mid-thigh 
  • With a properly tapered torso, you can leave the belt wrapped around the back
  • The most versatile color in the khaki family is mid-dark. But, if you can get a navy one, grab both

The fun of today’s rain gear is that there are more pieces on the market than the traditional yellow raincoat (blessings to OG outerwear). Adding a flash of color with a bold red water-repelling, windbreaker will have you crushing those inclement weather days. There’s a chance that you’ll end up wearing this when it’s not raining because the length is short enough to be considered sporty and the color is fresh

Also, if the weather clears up, you can pack this jacket away in your backpack or whatever you use to carry your daily wares.
