Are traditional raincoats ever out of style?

Bought this beauty on eBay. Went through several (Burberry, London fog, etc) that were either too big, too short in the sleeves, or the wrong material (I don’t like the heavy cotton raincoats) I think I finally nailed it. Brooks Brothers, 40L, poly/cotton,slightly past the knee (think Columbo)
Wife thinks it’s God awful and that I look like “someone from an Alfred Hitchcock movie” which made me smile because I love old movies! Lol
Anyway, are these style raincoats really “old fashioned? I don’t think so, but I wanted to see what the cognoscenti here think. Thanks!

That was THE coat to have in high school. I was class of '67.
Yes it was.. got mine at the old Yale Coop in New Haven, class of 66. Moved on to a Burberry trench after college which I still wear.
