    Barbour does not (or at least anything that you would want to wear) but they do a lot of collabs with hipster brands so you may find something. You can always do a cotton/techno fabric raincoat from Allegri

    Lame.

    I dont really want a rain coat. I want a cool looking, mid weight, knee length, awesomesauce coat. I thought that one fit the bill. It just happened to be useful as raincoat, but that was not what I intended it for.

    I have not, but I checked. Saw stuff from them on Nordstrom.com. Was not impressed. :/

    This, from Belstaff, but knee length, would be amazeballs for me.

    Stitchy, what's wrong with a regular overcoat? Both would look so much better on you than that ring jacket thing,.

    I am not looking for a dress coat, Im covered there.

    I do not drive a motorcycle, but that has nothing to do with fashionz.

    What kind of coat are you looking for? Rain coat? Pea coat? Leather jacket? That belstaff one looks exactly like the motorcycle coat my dad wears when he goes out on his Triumph cafe racer. Not sure if that's a good thing.
