Wardrobe Essentials: Raincoats
After such a fantastic summer that seemed to last a lifetime, Autumn has well and truly set in changing the leaves to fantastic hues and now and again you find yourself caught in a monsoon or the occasional blizzard. If you have the privilege living up North or anywhere for that matter, here at MFM we have devised an autumn guide to the smartest rainwear threads going.
Varying from contemporary to the traditional; choosing a raincoat in the present day can be somewhat of a milestone. You want the perfect balance of style, utility and uncompromising durability.
If you seek a coat that will indefinitely protect your suit jacket from the blusters and will look great teamed with denim… look not further than Stutterheim’s collection. Fun and smart with a subtle sixties vibe, Swedish brand Stutterheim have an eclectic range of rainbow raincoats to suit every modern man. It’s good to note, Stutterheim’s core inspiration evolved from his Granddad’s traditional fisherman waterproof, sensitively incorporating all of the original style credentials he would be proud of.
Given a style overhaul, simply cut and shaped with popper details, toggles, a useful hood and available in a variety of lengths, what more could you ask for! Stutterheim’s lightweight all-weather proof PVC raincoats are quirky, versatile and fuss free! MFM particularly love Stutterheim’s signature underarm ventilation eyelets, always keeping you cool on the go. Just what is to be desired for a spontaneous downpour!
Since the late sixties the K-WAY pac-a-mac special has taken ultilitarian fashion by storm; functional, convenient and unbelievably lightweight! Effortlessly simple and smart designs, K-WAY continues to produce the pac-a-mac in the present day, cleverly re-inventing traditional racing shoulder stripes with contrast sleeves and neon colour schemes.
The integration of modern design in the K-WAY signature mac is subtly influenced by street-wear trends and the requirement for comfort and practicality. Easy to wear, completely waterproof not to mention wind-proof with heat-sealed seams, K-WAY mac’s are highly trustworthy and a must investment.
With a great collection to choose from, K-WAY surely is tempting us! The brand completely nails the sportswear and retro raincoat trend this season. Here at MFM we can’t decide on our favourite colour…take your pick!
Aspesi raincoats available to buy exclusively at Mr Porter, channelling a bold yet traditional take on men’s outerwear; style isn’t compromised here! Showcasing a conventional 1960’s approach to design, Aspesi’s Mondrian inspired primary palette will be a hard decision to choose from! Here at MFM we think you really can’t go wrong…pack-a-trench!
None of the above take your fancy? You can always depend on man’s best friend in a rain or snowstorm… the umbrella! Try one of these London Undercover modern misters out for size! You know what they say… if it ain’t broken don’t fix it… here at MFM we think this counts for style too!
Whatever the weather you can cover up in style, without thankfully having to compromise too much of what you like these days. With smart examples of raincoats, pac-a-mac’s and pac-a-trench’s, you won’t be stuck for style or choice only for narrowing it down to one purchase! Good luck!
Function, quality and durability really don’t have to be questioned. MFM advises to invest in a reliable piece that will carry you through these unpredictable any weather months ahead… as they say bring on the rain… as long as you’re kitted out ready for it!
