It may sound stupid but Im curious about your thoughts on this.Thanks again in advance.
why, god, why?
What would be the point? OR is it a trendy one that does not look like a rain coat and can double for a normal coat?
Yes, you can wear a raincoat as an in-between-coat on the days when it's too cold to go without an outer garment, but too warm to wear a heavy winter coat.
It helps, if the rain coat is an attractive one (as opposed to a very utilitarian nylon coat).
I wear my raincoat if it's an in between day like bengal says and they're talking about a chance of rain. Another fun garment to have in your closet is a duster, for non rainy cool days.
Why ever not?
If you're talking about a slicker, then unless raindrops appear imminent, you will look out of place. If you're talking about a trench or a lightweight coat that can be treated against wetness, sure.
Any of you non believers see any rain here???
There was some interesting symbolism behind Harry Caul's all-weather slicker in The Conversation.
It had better be OK because I just bought a Burberry trenchcoat at the outlet mall, planning to wear it on those days described by bengal-stripe. We have a lot of them in Oklahoma and we also have days when the weather changes from sunny to a literal flood within a matter of hours.
Why, are you planning to go to the movies?
Only if your pant legs are held up by rubber bands
Yes, if your name is Colombo.
Paul Allen: Is that a rain coat?
Only if you're an occasional flasher, which is not encouraged.
