    I remember Brooks Brothers is clearing out a bunch of their new fabric linen blend breathable, waterproof raincoats. They might fit the bill, and yes, it's BB, so will look presentable.

    Arc'teryx Veilance

    https://veilance.arcteryx.com/Produc...&activity=Wind

    probably their inhouse 2 layer laminate , so not goretex unless you go into their technical shells, or you have to go to their fall/winter Veilance line. Still, if it's Arc'teryx, then it's likely with very detailed construction.

    Will probably be ok over a suit. Much better protection than any Mac or trench coat. Far more comfortable, light, and higher performance.

    I also think that macs are not ideal for walking an hour in the rain.

    I recently picked up the green ("vintage fatigue") version of the J. Crew mac when it was going for $62.50. But I'm not sure I'll keep it, as I don't love the color or shape. Then again, it's a good price for a pure cotton mac.

    BR's grey wool mac would to my mind be the ideal "affordable" mac, but it kept selling out. If any returns crop up in my size, I'll definitely jump on them.

    BR did just introduce another mac that's a cotton/nylon blend and is available in a shade of khaki and in olive. I'll be interested to see Joe's review of it.
