Rainforest describes its upscale outerwear for men and women as “ruggedly elegant" — but what does that term mean? Well, it means down coats ruched to flatter women's figures; sleek men's leather jackets and grey fitted bombers finely crafted from weatherproof mélange fabric; and parkas lined with lightweight Tetra Heat to forgo the usual bulkiness of winter coats. Founded by businessman Jack Wu, Rainforest has been perfecting its aesthetic since 1986 — enhancing its designs with eco-friendly insulation and detailing such as leather trim or quilting. Finely crafted and fashionable, these coats are equally functional: the packable travel coat, for example, is a water- and wrinkle-proof raincoat light enough to fold up and slip into a large-size travel tote. Cashmere scarves, sporty umbrellas, and sweaters available in big and tall sizes are some of the many other pieces Rainforest makes to help you endure rough weather in style.
