    I rarely need a raincoat, so all I'm looking for is a cheap, modern, fashionable, raincoat. If any of you have any suggestions, I'd be very grateful.

    Thanks in advance,

    Nathan

    I got a waxed cotton blackwatch plaid duffel coat from Hickey last year (FW) and it's pretty badass. Otherwise try APC or maybe J Crew.

    What size and budget? (ie check my sig - not really 100% waterproof though),
    also H&M has this type of thing if by cheap you mean like <$100.

    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.

    I'm thinking about making an SB trench. Maybe.

    Ben Sherman navy blue raincoat, ~$250, wore it today.
    Hickey Blackwatch Toggle Coat as mentioned before, I took one of the many opportunities to get it at ~$300.
