Sure, some Seattleites avoid umbrellas, but most of us do take sensible precautions in the face of drizzly weather. Keep fashionably dry with a locally made raincoat from Freeman (713 Broadway E), which also carries these dapper but durable tan Studio Pants.
Whether strolling through the city or snowshoeing in the Cascades, proper footwear is key. Find your fit, and maybe a classic trucker hat in the process, at REI (222 Yale Ave N). Discover trail-running sneakers, climbing shoes, and these sturdy Danner urban boots.
We still have a soft spot for the grunge era in Seattle. Case in point: plaid button-downs remain a wardrobe staple. Source yours from Filson (1741 First Ave S), along with a Scottish wool crewneck sweater to keep toasty on chilly days.
Choose a carryall that holds everything you need for exploring the city, but can just as easily double as a must-have for trekking through rugged mountains. Ballard-based Kavu (5419 Ballard Ave NW) makes fun, sturdy bags that can do it all.
