Thanks in advance,
Nobody notices what you're wearing when it's raining. They're too busy ducking drops while running for the subway.
I wear a black Christian Dior raincoat with slightly oversized buttons. Full, long belt, wrist belts, polyester outer, removable wool lining. I went up one size so it would be extra loose over my thickest jackets. Goes very nicely with a black Fedora. Retro '40s look.
I get double-takes when I go through a door and remove the coat and hat to reveal a sharp black suit. The other teachers gag because they wore sweatshirts and jeans.
So the deal is that it's not what raincoat you wear -- it's what you wear under
the raincoat. You could wear a yellow slicker, as long as it does the job.
