Because it’s gonna monsoon soon, we offer some watertight sartorial solutions.

The Coat

Alexander Stutterheim’s nouveau vintage take on the raincoat – made in a small Swedish village and modeled after a memory of his grandfather’s fishing jacket – is a reason to look out the window every morning and hope for rain. Plus its made of oilcloth: no wet raincoat smell!

The Bag

LA’s KILLSPENCER makes one of the most refined waterproof bags on the market. It’s good for a laptop, passport, iPad and whatever else you need to keep dry — all without making you look like a schoolkid or a hiker on the Appalachian Trail. It’s fireproof, too, so there’s that.

The Shoe

Hydrophobic, slip-resistant and made from 0% of the typical rainboot ugly, the Swims approach to rainy-day footwear merges classic brogue looks with restrained contemporary flair. And you don’t need to worry about getting stuck in galoshes when the sun comes out, because these kicks look good, weather independent.
