The Japanese have a knack for dolling up your everyday clobber in fabrics that could handle torrents. Perhaps understandable, since in June and September the Tokyo rain falls like a curtain, meaning you need office clothes that don’t act like sponges.
Enter the second season of The North Face’s Unlimited collection. Taking lifestyle pieces and swapping out traditional fabrics for lightweight and waterproof polymer, the range encompasses everything from accessories and footwear to shirts, jackets and outerwear. Everything the modern man needs for wet-weather commuting, in style.
