Alright fellas, it’s April. Other than the excitement over no school on Good Friday, this month brings rain. And if you look at the forecasts, it looks like there is going to be a lot of it. Follow these steps for raincoat success:


The collar should be popped. Don’t worry, you won’t look like a prepy idiot. That is what it’s for, to keep your neck dry.


A trench/raincoat should fit slimly and snug to your body. The bottom should be anywhere between two and six inches above the knee, according to GQ. If it fits correctly, no need to tie the belt around your waist — that is a little feminine anyways.


Khaki and black are both great options. If you are feeling a little more daring, try something bold, like red, green or electric blue.


While some are pretty pricy, you can hit up stores like Banana Republic or even Barneys co-op to find something rad and reasonable.
