Looking for an overcoat/raincoat/trenchcoat to wear over suits. Any ideas? Looking for links to pieces.

I love the idea of a houndstooth / tweed overcoat but dig the look of belted trenchcoats too.

As andy said burberry, mackintosh or aquascutum are classics. Permanent style has their version. Norwegian rain has some more contemporary designs. Alot of lifestyle/athletic brands have options aswell. Peak. Arc'teryx. Norrona, UBR, Swims
A cotton-poly/nyon mac could be an affordable option.

Lorpo piana has their storm system which is supposed to water proof any fabric including wool. Dont know if tweed/houndstooth fabrics are available.
Bro, chill with the affiliate links. :p

I don't know what you want to spend but on the other end of the price spectrum Macy's has London Fog raincoats which, although certainly not Burberry quality, are serviceable for the purpose of protecting your suits from the rain.

Just keep an eye on eBay for used trenchs. I just grabbed an aquascutum Bogart trench from @SpooPoker for ~$50 - needs a few alterations but in really fantastic shape, and far cheaper than $1250 new.

How about a combination tweed overcoat and rain coat?
