The Sleekest Outerwear To Compete With April Showers

Function meets fashion in our menswear edit of stylish performance jackets and wet weather-combatting threads.

Spring weather is the ficklest of all, with swinging temperatures and rain—especially in April. To battle the showers, add a topper that’s both technical and polished. Sportier options like anoraks and bombers can even work paired with your 9-5 garb too, as VP/DMM of Men’s Tailored Clothing, John Totolis suggests. “It’s very of-the-moment to mix casual jackets with traditional outfits and suiting. This season, Thom Browne, Burberry X Barneys New York, and Balenciaga reinterpreted the classic trench coat in an updated, edgier way,” he notes.

To get you through any forecast, Barneys also has water-resistant jackets. “Try Herno, with its innovative modern fabrications like Gore-Tex, for the utmost technical performance,” Totolis says. And don’t forget an umbrella to keep dry. “Our BNY umbrellas are hand-crafted in Italy with one-of-a-kind wooden handles—there’s nothing better.” Shop our team’s edited assortment of outerwear and accessories now to be prepared for the elements all spring long.
