Rain, rain, stay away. Come again another day (preferably one where our hair’s not just been washed). We can’t change the weather forecast, but we sure can dress for it. Here’s The Wordrobe’s best picks for some suave shower-proof fashion
1 Barbour Beal Showerproof
Look. Nothing says quite like ‘autumn’ quite like a trench coat. This one, available in two shades of either Camel or Black, is both sophisticated and high quality. The Barbour Beal Showerproof features a longline design with a belt at the waist for a waterproof breathable trench coat.
Cut to a tailored fit, this jacket boasts trench detailing with a front zip fastening and mock horn button placket. This jacket is lined with a classic tartan and finished with a Barbour embroidery to the pocket – you’ll be practically asking the clouds for a dreary day just to wear it.
