True, this winter wasn’t all too brutal. That said, doubt you’re sad to see ‘er go.

When it comes to April showers, though, don’t expect to be so lucky.

In the unprepared man’s immediate future: soggy shoes, matted hair and manic-episode-inducing umbrellas.

Which is why we’re bringing you three handsome outfits — one for business, one for pleasure and one for adventure.

2. Jack Spade Slim Brief - Tough textured material good for maintaining a sharp look through long wear with a detachable should strap and rain flap. ($378)
3. Avi-8 Lancaster Bomber - Water resistant up to 5ATM for when the weather goes full monsoon. ($215)
4. Senz Umbrella - Aerodynamic shape that cuts through wind and a strong frame that can withstand winds up to 62 MPH. ($51)
5. Swims Classic Galosh - For the storm-battling yet style conscious, there's no better way to protect your brogues. ($95)

For Pleasure

1. Ben Sherman Hooded Waterproof Parka - Made from bonded poplin, it's the perfect cruise-to-brunch buffer. ($235)
