    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 . . .
