Let’s be serious guys, NO-ONE is ever spotted ‘Singing in The Rain’. It’s all lies. If they have been, moments later they are being politely escorted back to a mental institute. We don’t sing in the rain. We swear in the rain. Why? Because it ruins our clothes…and our hair…and our phones.

These are our Top five Wet Weather items that will keep God’s tears at bay while helping you maintain that stylish image. This way, you can keep your iPod plugged in and maybe you try singing in the rain.

  1. Classic Umbrella
    An obvious choice you’re thinking, but you’ll be amazed at how many guys buy the cheap ‘made to break’ brollies from grocery stores. They end up soaked and looking stupid when it  folds in a thousand angles. Get yourself a classic, strong gentlemen’s umbrella, ideally one that is ‘wind proof’. Our choice would be the walking umbrella (above), or you could get a smaller automatic one. Any other colour than black screams “I live with my mum” (I have an array of colours.)
  2. Macintosh Coat
    The Macintosh is designed for one thing; to keep you dry. It’s more functional then stylistic, but get a perfect fit and you’ll look sharp. It’s thin, lightweight shell does well for avoiding that bulking effect when put over a suit. It also keeps you warm if it’s chilly outside and cool if it’s warm. Don’t ask us how. It just does. All kneel before King Mac.
  3. Suede Leather Rain Protector
    When rain hits your suede leather shoes and you see those darkened toes, you have the right to be angry at everyone that walks past you. You do. To make the rain slide of those babies like water off a leaf, spray some rain protector on them. Just make sure that you spray an even coating over  your shoes every time it rains. It’s a better idea than this, trust me.
  4. Trench Coat
    The Trench coat was first developed for use during World War One, not for those late trend-following sheep that flood Topman, Primark and ‘Outlet Store Everything Must Go’ (which is the ACTUAL name of a shop in central London.) Pop the collar and look dapper while moonwalking through the rain, and pair with some Tom Ford glasses to look like an undercover agent! Tan and black are your best bet to carry you effortlessly through the trends of fashion. They will ALWAYS look sharp.
  5. Parka Coat
    Now this my friends, laughs at rain and giggles at storms. If you’re wearing a Parka jacket and fully-grown elephants were falling out of the sky and hitting you, you’d be fine. You’d keep whistling ‘Crocodile Shoes’ and notice NOTHING.

Parka’s only need to come out when the real bad weather hits. They are rain proof, very warm due to its insulated inner layers and the cocoon shaped hood keeps even your nose dry. Your NOSE. Parka’s can be worn with casual attire as well as the suit. A perfect investment for the Londoner and New Yorker especially.
