Where Can I Buy Cute Rain Ponchos in Japan?

So I'm going to Japan (for the third time) in Dec/January. This time, I'm determined to buy one of the cute rain ponchos that seem so stylish and well made. I always wanted one; the ones I seem to find in Australia, the US and the UK are few and far between, they are also not well made. There are a couple of Japanese brands I've seen and I'm wondering if people know where these may be available for purchase? [more inside]

ISO: Packable Windbreaker

As much as I love it when spring comes to Chicago, these days of 45 degree mornings leading to 65 degree highs drive me batty with my clothing choices. I generally have to choose between either being cold in the morning, or wearing a light weight coat that I'm just going to roll up and stuff in my small messenger bag in the afternoon. I try to travel light -- I hate being the guy on the train who looks like he's lugging around a small luggage store -- and even cramming a light REI coat into my bag is a drag. [more inside]

Looking for a good raincoat that will keep me very dry but not warm

I need a new raincoat. I would like it to keep me very dry. I need to be able to pack it in a small space. I have a great trench coat that I love but sometimes rain soaks through it and it's a little bulky for travel. What raincoat should I get? [more inside]

What was that fabric?

So, I went on a business trip and my well-loved Burberry black trench raincoat, which I bought new at a department store 5 or 6 years ago, was stolen. I would really like to replace it. The catch is that I can't figure out just what the fabric was. It was soft to the touch, almost silky, with a lustrous shine (not the high shine of a sateen), and water resistant. It definitely was not the classic Burberry cotton gabardine, which is much rougher to the touch. I failed at figuring this out via Google. Can the hive mind help?

Help me find an autumn/early spring jacket

The weather is starting to get a bit brisk and, once again, I lament my lack of owning a good fall jacket. A few years ago, I found this zip peacoat-style rain jacket on a bargain website and I LOVE almost everything about it. Unfortunately, I have giant norseman shoulders (44 jacket measurement) so a Banana Republic XL is just a *bit* too tight in the back. It fits perfectly... untilI need to use my arms, that is. I would like to find something in the same vein, if possible. [more inside]

ISO a women's trenchcoat that will last.

For the past few years the Boden Rainy Day Mac has been the coat I wear all winter. It's perfect for the weather here, near Seattle. But it doesn't last more than two years before it looks shabby (not in a well-aged way, just worn out). What company makes trench coats that will still look good after a few years? [more inside]

Need the perfect rain coat, because soggy wool isn't cutting it anymore.

I'm looking for a recommendation for a women's rain coat, with some specific requirements, because I'm really done with freezing in something waterproof or being warm and soggy in wool when it's 30-45F out. [more inside]

Where to buy a stylish but affordable trenchcoat in Vancouver BC

I'm going to be up in Vancouver this weekend and want to shop for a new spring coat. Something trenchcoat style but not in black or beige - cool colors or prints/patterns would be better. Size 12 or M/L, between $100 and $200. The style constraints are that it should not be teenagery but not dowdy either - I like classic cuts but trendy colors and patterns. I already plan to check out The Bay.

Help me find two articles of clothing

I am looking for the following things and have not been able to find them through the major vendors where I usually buy clothes (Nordstrom, Eddie Bauer, Loft, Banana Republic, and the like). I'd appreciate tips to vendors either major or indie in the US where I could find them. (1) Women's spring-weight trenchcoat in a patterned fabric (houndstooth, plaid, graphic print, floral), $75-$175, size 12/M/L. (2) Women's/unisex hoodie with an argyle pattern, decent build quality, size M/L.

Stylish rain gear for a rainy city (Vancouver) ?

Moved to Vancouver not too long ago, I'm still getting used the rainy weather that's upon us. I'm looking for outerwear that can withstand the rain and still look pretty stylish. So, parkas and other standard North Face/MEC outdoorsy gear is out of consideration for now. Male, late 20s here. I'm a fan of the classic raincoat but most look too baggy on me, or seem too unwieldy. Is there any hope for me? Thanks (:
