The rain has started to happen. After a few glorious, humid weeks, the skies have started to open to do what British weather does best.

Sure we might have the odd nice day here and there, but you can't fight the inevitable. It's about to get cold and wet, and you need to prepare for it...

  • Herno Laminar

    Normally wearing a waterproof jacket with a suit would look out of place as most are too casual, but this GORE-TEX shell down coat combines smart water resistant tech with a sartorial ethos.


  • Rains

    Have you ever seen a Scandinavian brand make bad clothes? Us neither, and Rains is no exception, as they more than prove with this baby blue rainproof jacket with drawstring hood.


  • DC

    Nineties skate brand DC aren't all massive skateboarding shoes anymore, they produce some cracking technical streetwear like this 5K waterproof fishtail parka with adjustable hood.



  • Converse

    A lighter option for those seeking relief from the rain. This hoodie is made from water repellent brushed cotton fleece, as well as featuring a reflective print to keep you safe in gloomy conditions.


  • Herno

    Puffer jackets are going to be all the rage next season, but if you don't want one with a streetwear aesthetic then go for this luxurious quilted-down version instead.


  • Weekday

    Thanks to Yeezy beige and camel are still massively on-trend, so translate into AW16 style by bagging yourself this hooded rain coat, which you can just throw in the washing machine when it gets dirty.


  • Belstaff

    An absolute classic in the world of waterproofs, this four-pocket Belstaff jacket boasts a waxed finish and is crafted in breathable cambric cotton sourced from British mills.


  • Patagonia

    As well as being waterproof yet breathable, this active wear jacket is also windproof with a tough two-layer GORE-TEX fabric for enhanced durability.


  • Converse

    The iconic skate brand's new Counter Climate range aims to battle tough conditions in style, as this fishtail rubber parka promises to do water resistant design and adjustable features.


  • Stone Island

    Looking for extra reinforcement this winter? That's where this concealed hooded jacket comes in, which boasts a 2-layer performance material which can bear a water column of 8000 mm.
