If you’re not familiar with the pleasingly rugged, classic outerwear, shirting and gear from Line of Trade at Bespoke Post, it’s high time indeed that you got very, very familiar. They consistently make, among other categories, some of the best jackets for men in any season, and that holds true with the Line of Trade Portland Rain Jacket. As ever, Bespoke Post assuredly knows what it’s doing with this in-house brand, and the result is one of the best spring rain jackets you’re going to layer up with for the weeks ahead — in short, don’t delay! But let’s get into what makes it so special, shall we? Allow me to tell you why this is one heck of a must-buy rain jacket for men. First off, you can get this jacket as a standalone style favorite, or you can pick up the Bespoke Post Downpour Box, one of the latest and greatest monthly subscription boxes from the NYC-based retailer (one of my favorite online retailers, I should add). So it’s got both affordability and ease of access going for it, and that’s not to be overlooked these days. Naturally, the Line of Trade Portland Rain Jacket also checks all the right boxes in terms of style and utility (more on both in a moment).
SHOP: The Line of Trade Portland Rain Jacket
It’s got all the specs you could ever ask for in your new favorite rain jacket, including the fact that it’s lightweight and yet durable, so it’ll protect you from rain on the go without weighing you down. The Line of Trade Portland Rain Jacket features a cotton shell with a DWR, or durable water repellent, coating for maximum water resistance. The fact that it’s built with three layers of fabric and a 5K waterproof rating is also critical. In short, it packs in a lot of functionality (including taped seams to keep water out) into a subtle and stylish package. The storm flap front closure also manages to keep water out, and the duckbill hood is a very nice touch in the midst of the worst spring rains possible. When you want a jacket for a downright steal ($45 via the Bespoke Post Downpour Box or just $100 on its own), it’s very clear that you want the Line of Trade Portland Rain Jacket.
