Don’t you hate it when you start your day with a smile because the weather is somewhat nice only to have it turn into a pouring bucket of rain a couple hours later? Those are the days when you never brought your umbrella with you, which of course means you will be soaking wet before you reach the inside of your doorstep. The momentary inventions to keep us dry have been many, and some are thought up immediately in order to help us escape the drops from a looming furious heaven. We never seem to have the appropriate clothes to battle the weather, or maybe it’s just that there are no real casual clothes that can withstand the rain.
Look no further, people! I think I have found the solution to all our problems, but don’t think it’s a fashionable solution. It comes in great packaging; however, the name isn’t very shocking which means there will be no extra points for braggin about it to your friends. It’s the Umbrella Coat that will let you pull out a hoodie umbrella, or something like that. I can’t really explain it in any other way because that’s exactly what it looks like. It’s no doubt a futuristic creation seemingly inspired by sci-fi movies, but it will keep you dry and that’s all that matters, I guess.
I am sure if a lot of people start wearing this, it could potentially be a pretty neat solution for not having to carry around an umbrella wherever you go. Few people want to be the first to give up fashion for usefulness though, so I think a few brave ones will have to start the trend by labeling this as hipster cool. There’s no doubt it is a really interesting solution, but the execution of it is ultimately geeky, and I am not sure most people would settle for geeky when they could go chic, if you know what I mean.
