Don’t let April showers get you down – there’s plenty of stylish wet weather gear to keep you warm and dry

1. Hentsch Man

£440, hentschman.com

Here's a label that provides stylish wardrobe basics for the fashion-savvy gent. The navy anorak is rubber coated but lightweight, making it ideal for urban living.

2. Asos

£65, asos.com

This has contrasting red and camel panels, a funnel neck and drawstring tie. With a hood and a cinched waist, it's a very urbane take on nautical.

3. Cos

£175, cosstores.com

Cos clothes are the essence of understatement, providing basic pieces cut in a very unfussy way. This aqua blue rain mac fulfils this ethos.

4. Margaret Howell

£345, margarethowell.co.uk

This rain jacket is made from waxed cotton, and is as functional as it is stylish. Not only does it have concealed pockets, it also comes with a pack-away pouch.

5. Original Penguin

£ 185, originalpenguin.co.uk

Wearing anything in this eye-catching shade of cherry tomato takes confidence, but if you've got it, flaunt it. Under the toggles there's also a zip fastener.

6. French Connection

£150, frenchconnection.com

The belted trench is the tried and tested classic choice for traditional rain wear. This affordable version ticks all the right boxes in what this style should offer.

7. Oliver Spencer

£289, oliverspencer.co.uk

This jacket is made from Millerian waxed cotton, which helps give it a polished finish. It features a contrasting zipper fastening and four pockets.

8. Gap

£39.95, gap.eu

Finding fashion forward rain wear on a budget can be tricky, but fortunately, Gap has this nifty little nylon jacket in red to help avoid any fashion no-nos.

9. Burberry Brit

£595, mrporter.com

Burberry Brit provides a relaxed but still sophisticated take on Burberry's heritage. This jacket is showerproof and has a clean, modern line.

10. Levi's Made & Crafted

£250, levismadeandcrafted.com

Admittedly this is more of a showerproof jacket than anything else but the cut is of a classic work-wear style, so it's well worth a look.
