You already know the answer
Not many young men wear them because most of them haven't a clue how to dress themselves. You be their teacher. Rainwear serves a legitimate purpose (protects your suit), and looks great. I have worn Trench Coats since I am 18. Men are influenced on clothes just as women are, so if other men see you in a Rain or Trench, and see how great it looks, they'll probably go and buy one too. I love the attention I get on morning trains from women who take triple and quadruple takes at me. ..and the smiles...oh yes. Men definitely check me out too. As we are visual creatures by design, it's only natural that we compare ourselves to others. Wearing either of these classic and timeless garments, makes a positive statement. Any man or woman worth knowing will notice the extras, and know at a glance, that you are showing respect for yourself. A nice Raincoat or Trench Coat (and, in my case, add a fedora) are 'icing on the cake' to a mans wardrobe, and in my opinion, an essential item to a mans wardrobe, regardless of age.
