GQ Selects: Jack Spade’s Gold-Standard Raincoat

“For us, this is the gold standard when it comes to buying that raincoat that you’re going to wear over a business suit, on the weekends, on every trip imaginable. The color is perfect because it references a traditional tan raincoat, but the people at Jack Spade have warmed-up the hue to make it more skin-tone friendly. It’s cut trim and a bit shorter than normal, which gives it a more contemporary edge, and the orange interior ensures you’re not wearing your dad’s old vintage raincoat.

Form follows function in the details, like bonded seams that keep out the water, and gussets under the armholes that help the rubberized cotton breathe. There’s no lining, so it’s easy to throw on over your heaviest flannel wool suit or fisherman sweater or even a hoodie. This is a raincoat fit for running errands or for a meeting with the CEO.”

—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director
