Stylish raincoats? - Page 2

post #16 of 21
Time for the umbrella . . . I managed to find a wonderful black, lightweight wool gabardine coat, that has been treated for rain. It's by Armani, and I love that coat, to death. It fits easily over any suit or sweater, and sheds the rain, too.

A rain coat or trench, lined in wool via a zip out liner, is a practical choice.

I like my E&R raincoat:

I also like the Loro Piana storm system raincoats too but haven't been able to find one in my size at a reasonable price yet. The shorter jackets (I think it's their Roadster model) look great too.

I imagine the remouvable inner layer on some raincoats is for this....

But the standard trenches are so baggy you can really put it over your overcoat...
I do have a traditional trech size 48 but is way too baggy... now I use the slim ones... see above..

For more dressy ocassions, a cotton flyfront raincoat in tan or navy is good. Burberry, Aquascutum and Cordings are some of the traditional English manufacturers. Burberry is the most expensive. I have a Cordings one with removable wool lining that is great value. These cotton raincoats are for use in light showers to protect your suit, with an umbrella.

For casual use, nothing beats a Barbour coat. Get one and I am sure it'll last you a lifetime.

Anyone try these? Are they at all slim-fitting?

Never seen them but they don't look too slim. I think they would mention it if it was.
