What kind of coat should I buy for bike commuting in spring weather? (male fashion)
posted by lord_yo to clothing, beauty, & fashion (9 answers total)
I commute 15 minutes to work by bike in a European city. As I don't have time nor facilities to change, I wear my office clothes (suit) underneath. On the bike I'm carrying a backpack or messenger bag. Now I'm looking for a coat or jacket to fit my lifestyle.
The coat should:
- work for biking in fresh spring weather (15-20° C / 55-70° F) with occasional light showers
- be a good balance between relaxed and elegant - i.e. not clash with a suit underneath, but also be wearable with less formal wear.
General types of coats/jackets or specific item recommendations welcome!
