Rain Stash

It's officially the rainy season. When a great evening (and a beautiful pair of shoes) can be ruined by a sudden downpour right as you're ready to leave the building. We're sure, by now, you're keeping a spare dress shirt around in case of sartorial emergencies, but you should also have some protection against precipitation handy as well. After all, a gentleman is nothing if not prepared. Oh, and an umbrella wouldn't hurt either.

Tingley's Moccasins

A pair of rubber galoshes will protect you from puddles and these from Tingley's are so handsome that, in a pinch, they could pass on their own as loafers.

$20 at Amazon

Swims Water Coat

Lightweight and breathable, this modern take on the classic mac comes in three colors and stays wrinkle-free, despite being stored in a desk-drawer-sized pouch.

$365 by Swims (available at select Neiman Marcus stores)

  • Memphis, Tennessee was the wettest city in the US last year with 54.7 inches of rain.
