Whether you’re a even-handed cannibal, a vigilante serial killer, or you’ve just had a hard time this week getting those business cards to print just right, an essential piece of your Friday evening wardrobe is a good, high-quality rain coat.
Rain gear is essential in humid climates like the Pacific Northwest, or coastal areas like Florida, where a summer storm could blow in very quickly. Without it, you risk damaging that excellent suit you’re wearing.
Nice suit, by the way. Is that Armani?
If you’re planning on going out with a friend, a raincoat could also save the evening. Just imagine the trouble you would have if that gesticulating drunk at the bar next to you threw his hands up too quickly while telling his story and his cheap beer got on your shoes. Or if one of the waitstaff riff-raff dare touch your elbow as he hands you the check.
With a proper raincoat as part of your ensemble, you’re sure to avoid any wardrobe mishaps when you grab the offending party by the arm with one hand and swiftly sever it at the elbow with the other.
