    Default Need advice on summer jacket/overcoat/rain coat/trench coat -

    I am now wearing a suit daily, and will be from now on, and need something to wear over my suit on rainy days. I live in Canada, so if there are options that could also serve for spring/summer/fall conditions, that would be great. I work in a very formal environment, and must dress the part. I have never worn an overcoat before.

    I am looking for suggestions that will be dressy, versatile, durable, functional, and fairly inexpensive.

    Color? Size (I am a 42L and 6'2'')? Style? Maker? Other considerations? Thanks!

    Another option would be ebay. I bought a second hand Burberry trench in excellent condition for 100 USD...

    Here is another trench from H & M. It is cheap, but the quality of their products isnt that good.

    When I think of trench coat I think of Burberry.
