In the past few weeks, we have seen more rain in Annapolis than we would care to see in a year. Literally, it seems like we are having torrential downpours every other day. We still revert to hardcore weather gear when we know it is going to be really bad, but for the days that there is only a chance of rain we always turn to our trusty trench. Recently, the gang over at Bonobos took their first step into the world of outerwear with a trenchcoat they have dubbed The Shamus ($298).
Available in Navy or Khaki, The Shamus is made of a water resistant cotton that will protect you from elements yet still remains quite breatheable. Of course, Bonobos has gone to great lengths to make sure their trench has just the right fit. They even went so far as to create a cut that will keep its shape and look great over a blazer, or whatever other layers you may have on. With a covered placket for extra protection from the weather, and a single vent for “smooth striding”, The Shamus is a trenchcoat that will look great paired with everything from your favorite suit to a beat up pair of jeans and a button down.
