one thing i learned from last year's wet, washed-out summer (it felt more like typhoon season at times) is that you shouldn't let the rain cramp your style.
one caveat: you have to spare your pretty footwear from dirty puddles.
i trust the weatherproofing of this jacket so much that i just toss my blackberry and iPod in its pockets and run out the door, umbrella be damned.
