The raincoat: how to be stylish even on a wet day

Often we get up in the morning, we look out of the window and see that it’s a grey day. Perhaps it will rain? And perhaps it’s an important day at work and we particularly want to make a good impression. Certainly we don’t want a sudden shower to ruin our outfit. Even this sort of day should be handled with style, and here a raincoat can be instrumental, providing protection as well as distinctive looks. At Boggi Milano we offer many different versions, all of which are impeccably smart as well as highly practical. Our range of colours includes the classic shades of blue, beige and black. Each version has important technical properties such as thermal insulation, water repellence, breathability and windproof performance. These characteristics are made possible by the use of high tech “Earth Wind & Fire” fabic in the Vitale Barberis Canonico raincoat and the Three-Layer raincoat.

In addition to the classic double-breasted trench, a garment first used in military circles over a century ago, we also make a new reversible trench. This is constructed in such a way as to be used both as a summer overcoat and as a traditional raincoat, according to which side is worn outwards. As an overcoat, it is in the classic Boggi blue outside, while as a raincoat it is beige. This garment, water-repellent and anti-cling, is durable, easy to clean, and offers the perfect combination of classical cut and contemporary wearability.

Clean and simple lines have always been characteristic of male elegance, and this is why a well-tailored raincoat is an essential piece in the Gentleman’s wardrobe.
