How to combat the summer rain in style

Although our calendar (and the occasional glimpse of sunshine) keep telling us it’s officially summer, waking up today was a different story. Stepping out in an unexpected downpour can quickly put the brakes on even the best of mornings, so it pays to be a little organised – especially if you live on our fair isles. Gone are the days of chucking on an old anorak (just don’t, gentlemen). Look no further than here for your guide to filling your wardrobe with rainproof details that don’t sacrifice form for function, whether it’s a debonair umbrella or series of sharp raincoats.

An umbrella

No gentleman should ruin his stylish attire with an umbrella that’s not fit for purpose: you didn’t spend time in front of the mirror just to ruin it all with some ridiculous branded umbrella from the office that your flatmate’s girlfriend’s brother works for. Step out in style with London Undercover, one of the newest and most sought after brands in menswear.
