Lads, the news and that is saying summer is coming, but I reckon they’re lying I woke up this morning and it was proper chucking it down. It was mint, tbh. I got to get a decent coat out of the wardrobe which was nice, y’know how it is. Anyway, I spent my lunch looking at rain coats online, any excuse to buy a new coat. I didn’t get one. But I logged into Twitter this evening and saw a link to these, a collab between Stussy & Rains. These will be hard to ignore.

Stussy isn’t the usual brand round here, bit more streetwear than we usually show, but I like them. I wore them a lot when I was younger and spent a little less time trying to look smart and more time running round town drawing on walls, but when they’ve paired up with Rains, the rainwear makers, they’ve produced something proper good. A proper coat that’d look mint with a pair of jeans and some Red Wings as it would with a pair of shorts and some Finn Comforts.

I’m really into this coat, everything about it is what I like in a coat, nice big deep pockets, just the right height. Also, the hood is mint, probably the best hood i’ve seen in a while, got a peak on it and some proper nice drawstrings with some leather toggles not the type of thing you see on rain macs but they finish it off. It comes in two colours, green and sand, and it’s unisex, so your missus can nick it when youse pop to that posh place in town for brunch (we’ve all been there, well I have)

It’s available from all Livin’ GENERAL STORE dealers here which unfortunately are Japan only, but there are ways to get them if you’re in the know. Also, check that muzzy, you won’t pull it off so don’t get any ideas.
