Gotta Cop: RainCoats

raincoatWearing W118 Walter Baker, Vintage hat, Nike Cortex shoes.

They are called Raincoats for a reason. However, I took the term very lightly maybe due to the fact that the only raincoat I owned was a plastic pancho that made so much noise I thought I was becoming deaf with each raindrop. It wasn’t until I purchased a  W118 Walter Baker Coat on the a couple of seasons ago the term began to have reason. I remember the day it arrived, the excitement was more about the presentation and if you have ever received a box from the designer discounted retailer than you know what I mean.


I recall trying to rip the tape apart with my hands until I got smart and grabbed a pair of scissors, cutting until I spotted the white clothed garment bag that the coat was hung inside. As pulled it out to reveal the huge big black dot of the signature logo I began to tingle and slowly unzipped it exposing the camel colored body of the short trench with the the black bad ass leather sleeves.  The next day the usual frown of the rainy weather was replaced with a grin from ear to ear because I knew what I would be wearing as I walked outside. When it was time to go there was no umbrella in sight and the pounding sounds as the drips it the pavement made me think, “I am going to get drenched!” So I ran swiftly to the car, hopped in and began arriving to take off my hat and coat as i drove off. Undressing I noticed myself patting the coat down and I realized huh, I am completely dry. In  that moment I knew what a real raincoat was.
