Normally most kind of rain gear is polyester based not very stylish. So we focus on the elegant aspects.
The number one item of outerwear for a rainy day in my opinion is a trench coat. If you're wearing tailored clothes, it's just an extension in terms of originality, style and history of the suit.
The second classic option are rubberized raincoats. Back in the day, it was like rubberized cotton. Modern raincoats for gentlemen are often made out of synthetics.
The third option for gentlemen are classic casual wax jackets. Basically these are garments made out of cotton that have a waxy surface that creates a patina over time that's very sophisticated.
The fourth thing to consider for a gentleman are performance fabric that are based in a sartorial realm.
In terms of shoes and shoe care, I'm a big stickler for traditional leather dress shoes and most of them can bear some form of rain without a problem. Your feet will remain dry. If you pre-treat your shoes you don't have to worry too much.
For a regular calf leather shoe with leather soles I suggest you invest in a leather sole oil and sometimes you can also find water repellent sprays that you spray on.
The third option you have is to go with over shoes or galoshes.
If you're into Cordovan shoes, I suggest you really try to avoid wet weather with those because it can lead to very ugly water stains which are hard to remove.
So what if your leather dress shoes or your boots get really wet or soaked? Evenly wet the shoe. That seems counterintuitive but by adding water back into the shoe and letting it dry in a natural way without artificial heat, you will have a nice leather again that has no more water stains.
If you live in an area where it rains a lot or you have to deal with
floods regularly it pays to invest in some really sturdy rubber boots that are tall or rain boots that are 100% waterproof.
During the cold days of the year. A pair of unlined dressy leather gloves or even lined leather gloves that are waterproof can be a godsend.
A felt hat can be a great way to keep dry. They're usually made out of rabbit hair which is naturally water repellent.
The better option is to go with an umbrella because it's much wider and it really keeps you much drier.

I have an all cotton US surplus trench coat from ww2, and it seems to be completely waterproof. I have worn it in multiple downpours without any problem. It has a heavier fabric than Burberry's coats, so that is probably why.
Agree the trench coat is a timeless classic, and goes with anything. For years i have worn a navy 3/4 coat with liner from London Fog. For winter I have a gray wool trench for dressy occasions. I think the over shoe for men is a good idea -- the rubber will also help you avoid slipping on black ice in freezing weather. Don't spend a fortune on an umbrella -- basic black will do.
Another gem. I expected a video on a variety of trenchcoats and you presented much more. As always I come away with a broader awareness of options and more. That striped umbrella is a killer. Thank you, sir.
@11:02 Rafael, I love your content, your style, I see all your videos and follow your style very good. But I have to say, and I'm not vegan nor animal activist or so... but the constant recommendations on animal skins to be worn as garment is quite annoying. Like they feel a little out of... let's say... out of century, with all the actual contious of animal killings... just saying. I love your contents and everytime you say leather or some animal skin, I immediately think on a substitute that doesn't mean killing an animal. Just saying. Love your style advices and style! Hope you come to Argentina soon.
I consume made a umbrella from Fox that has solid oak stick and engraving etc for 600USD. While i do appreciate its quality, i found it not very practical. Its heavy and hard to store in my car or my office. I only used it twice since i got it this fall (i live in seattle).
Thank you for this. I get so very tired of seeing adults walking around the city dressed like they're on an expedition. Nothing says 'I never camp or spend time outside' like wearing your hiking/camping gear at every available opportunity.
Hi. Could you please make videos on how to dress up for the ff:
1. When you live in a tropical climate
2. When you are on a tour (e.g. comfortable yet stylish shoes other than sneakers that are good for plenty of walking -- summer and winter).
I'm trying to find a video but can't seem to do so. It's the one about the Italian fashion trend where it looks like the outfits are more causual/careless but they are in fact very thought out. You even mentioned how some try to pull it off but fail. (You used a millionaire that put on a light blue suit with shorts as an example.)
I love your products and videos, but I'm committed to buying leather produced in an ethical way. What can you tell me about the sourcing of your leather (I have my eye on some of your leather gloves in particular)? Are there any independent bodies who have confirmed the ethical treatment of the animals used to make the leather? I know this seems contradictory, but I have no problem with killing animals for clothing/shoes/etc. It gives them a higher purpose. I would feel better knowing that the animals that were slaughtered for my clothes/food were treated well during their lives and killed with minimal pain/suffering. I'd be interested to know how I can find this sort of information about menswear brands in general.
Thanks for any info,
Great video, I have a question about ties and shirts. When wearing a tie, how does one perfectly hide the top button and the fabric where the shirt comes together at the top to make a flawless look from neck to tie ?
Lately I've been liking the look of tall boots. I think a pair of waterproofed leather boots that resemble the older riding boot styles would go well with elegant men's clothing as well as being quite functional.
Not saying that you are lacking of new material, the contrary is the case in my opinion, however I just wanted to suggest that you might want to redo older videos where the content is superb but the video quality is lacking.
I feel like this is such an undervalued dress category for both genders. I still haven’t found my perfect rain coat. I have however found a wonderful umbrella that has lasted me several years. It’s of Japanese construction similar to their paper parasols (the framework) and it is impressively sturdy even in heavy wind. As a young, vegetarian female of unsubstantial wealth I don’t even relate to the majority of your videos but I love them anyways.
Helps if you work in a law office and make $60,000 or €50,000 a year. Probably don't want to go to work at McDonald's looking like this, which unfortunately probably make up half your subscribers who like Dandyism but can't pay their gas bill.
Ich sehe Ihre Beiträge wirklich gerne. Vorausgesetzt, man richtet seine Prioritäten überwiegend und/oder ausschließlich auf die gesellschaftlichen Erwartungen anlässlich bestimmter Ereignisse oder Lebensumstände aus, enthalten sie sehr gute Vorschläge und Empfehlungen bezüglich Kleidung und Accessoires. Sollte ich mich jedoch, aus welchen Gründen auch immer, bei schlechtem Wetter für längere Zeit nach draußen begeben, so gilt für mich die Devise „Form follows Function“. Dann wird es Goretex Jacke und wetterfester Rucksack statt Trenchcoat und Regenschirm. Man kann auch Funktionskleidung angemessen tragen und nicht so polemisch überspitzt unvorteilhaft, wie Sie es in Ihrem wohl absichtlich so dargestellten Negativbeispiel getan haben.😉
Hi. I managed to buy a second hand aquascutum trenchcoat, mut i believe it was machine washed as it is not waterproof at all. Any way to re-treat it or shall i just wax it like they did in the elder days?
Nice video! Another good idea would be to also make one on "snow gear" with the Canadian climate in mind (where it gets down to -40 and snows for 6 months). Maybe introduce some nice shoe brands for walking on snow, ice, and slush. I really liked your shoe passion boots btw.
If you're outside less than 30 minutes, you likely don't even need winter boots. I wear a pair of waterproof Geox Amphibiox dress boots for Edmonton winters, and it's just fine for ice and slush. I also use Accton galoshes over dress shoes, and it's okay, but I'd rather have ankle coverage in deep snow. Rubber galoshes are simply invincible on ice.
I love how people will critique this man when they specifically come to here to learn how to actually dress.
I personally have learned so much more about clothes from you sir. I have invested in my first pair of expensive shoes and I've learned how to pair colours so much better.
Thank you kindly sir!
That trench coat is waaaaaaay to hot during the rain, though. I found a really light overcoat that's designed for the wet season, but it looks... OK. Not at all classic. I mostly just dress casually and carry my suit to the office, which isn't ideal when you're carrying so much already. Do you know of anything that's cool, but keeps the rain out? Something that you would wear while wearing cool biz.
Sven, I have a rather specific question. I own a traditional khaki double breasted trench coat and normally wear a flat cap with it. I am starting a new career in funeral services and wonder if I should get a darker color trench coat and opt for a more formal had, such as a fedora? Also, would it be proper etiquette to have an extra wide umbrella to offer rain shelter to funeral attendees?
if you want to wear a trench coat on top of a suit for example, should the trench be bigger than your normal size ? my suit size in italian sizes for example is 46-48 (i have wide shoulders) what trench size should i order ?
Most of the trencoats I've seen are made a bit wider so people can wear it with a suit underneath. If you're not sure just try it on but if you're buying online then try to see if people have left a review or if the exact measurements(cm/inch) are available.
