Is it okay to wear a raincoat when its not raining? - Page 2

post #16 of 26
So, what do you wear when it's too warm for an overcoat and too cool to go sans a coat? Shit, this seems silly that you can't wear a raincoat. Not to mention all these bullshit responses people love to give so much.

the trench coat sans zip lining. is a practical idea for cool days that are not cold enough for a top coat. its like a windbreaker for a suit.

Of men who wear coats over suits, I would say that 75% plus wear raincoats/trenchcoats even when it's not rainy.

They're called "raincoats" for a reason, and are designed and costructed for that purpose. If you need an in between type covering try a duster or a car coat.

I have a suede trench coat that I sometimes wear. Obviously, it wasn't designed for rainy seasons. As well, I have these other trenches that were never designed for rain either.

Are we confused here? There's nothing wrong with wearing a trench coat or similar light fabric coat when it's cool but not raining. I wouldn't suggest a plastic/rubber slicker when it's dry, but these are different things.

I wore one today... It was not raining... yesterday rained and it could maybe today....

but anyway the reason why I put it on is because is cold out there, but not so cold to put on a wool overcoat... so I put this on that is double brested and can be fully closed ....

and also because it looks nice !

Yes, I have two wool trenches one in khaki one in gray with red windowpane... they are made for winter cold not for rain

I'm with thinman: I often wear my Burberry when there's not a cloud in the sky. But I don't really consider it a "raincoat".

I have an off-black one and I do exactly that . . . . especially starting late mid/late fall . . .
