To keep yourself dry amid annual April showers, enlist a quality trench coat. A three-quarter length should shield your suit or sports jacket from the raindrops falling from the sky, though a longer trench is better for a taller man who can carry the extra fabric. Three of our favorites: H.E. by Mango makes the perfect starter trench coat at a reasonable $200; Gant’s single-breasted trench is a great lightweight travel companion that won’t take up too much space in your luggage; and Richard Chai’s trench, which pairs nicely with boots and jeans, is meant for postmidnight play as opposed to the evening commute home.
