Kansas City-based Baldwin breaks away from their staple denim with a rain jacket that’s all its own. We know the temps have plummeted, but this is a perfect fit for wet winter days. The Baldwin Seattle Rain Jacket sets itself apart from your average raincoat because of its sporty look and slim construction. It’s made of lightweight nylon and lined with fine jersey with a double zip front and hood. Overall it’s a versatile jacket that is a staple for the guy that is more weekend sporty than stuck on the couch.

Founder and designer Matt Baldwin said it’s geared for a generation of guys who grew up in active sports.

“We love technical performance pieces that transition from the mountain to the street…that is the Seattle,” Baldwin said. “A great shell jacket for the mountain or a rainy day in the city.”

Baldwin was founded in 2009 with as an American-made denim brand with a modern design aesthetic. Typically they use ultra- premium Japanese and American selvage denim. Basically you don’t wash these babies and they mold to your leg after time. They are a bit pricey falling above $200, but if cared for properly they will last. Since 2009, the brand has expanded from their staple denim to a full gamut of menswear and even a more recently launched women’s line.

The Baldwin Seattle raincoat will run you $395. Pick one up here and peruse their online shop here. If you pick one up don’t for get to tag both Baldwin and The Manual on instagram at @baldwin and @themanualstyle.
