White looks right for activewear. All kinds of tech materials are layered in active separates: hooded parkas and knitted mesh tops are detailed with crisp cargo pockets, tape trims and industrial closures, often in contrasting brights or black. New treatments make these optic whites stain and discoloration resistant. Funnel or band necklines are key.

The showers that bring spring flowers rarely keep city dwellers inside. For next Spring/Summer expect men to take to the streets in fashion-forward raincoats and parkas in sheer nylons or new soft vinyls. These featherweight slickers come in solids or prints, and can be sophisticated enough to layer over a tailored suit or playful enough to adapt for young men or even kidswear. Lengths range from fingertip to almost-ankle; hoods and drawstring hems are key.
