The rainy season is here and the one thing Kenyan men are known for is they don’t like carrying umbrellas. Men who carry umbrellas are referred to as slay kings.
Well, there is a solution for you here. If you do not want to carry an umbrella and you do not want to be rained on, raincoats work perfectly well for you. No, I am not talking about the G4S kind of coats. You want to prevent rain but also want to look classy right?
Worry not, here are 5 raincoats you can rock over your suit and keep the look while also keeping dry.
- Cotton Blend Hooded Jacket
2. Cotton-Hooded Parka
This long hooded shell is an ultra-stylish and sophisticated mix of a trench coat and parka. It features a marina print lining and leather trim on the interior as well as an interior drawstring waist and a Velcro-fastening collar and cuffs. Its length adds style, but its no-fuss design is the perfect protectant outerwear for a suit or jeans and a t-shirt weekend attire.
3. Water-Repellent Field Jacket
Modeled after the classic M-65 field jacket, this layering piece comes with a stowaway hood with drawcords, a double vent with concealed snap closures, and an interior left waist pocket in addition to its two chest pockets and two waist pockets. It also comes equipped with a concealed interior drawstring for those wanting a slimmer look. To top it off, this jacket is machine washable for a less precious addition to your wardrobe for rainy days.
Designer Sander Lak has made a name for his womenswear line for his brilliant use of color and texture, and just last year he launched his menswear line built on the same principals. This navy coated cotton coat with a pointed collar was made in the United States and perfectly illustrates Lak’s clever twists on classic silhouettes.
5. Waxed Roadmaster Jacket
The Roadmaster, first introduced by Belstaff in 1981, looks as current today as it did 37 years ago, which is why it remains one of the brand’s bestsellers. It comes in eight different earth-toned colorways, and its cambric cotton coated in a breathable and waterproof waxed finish is sourced from a historical British mill. The jacket comes with a belt but looks just as good (if not better) without, for those that prefer an unadorned waistline.
