When cooler temperatures and scattered showers arrive but a raincoat would be overkill, the combination of a tweed cap or beaver felt hat and a tweed jacket will keep a body dry. Tightly woven tweed is so water resistant that a man can substitute a tweed topcoat for a raincoat in anything short of a torrential downpour.
In the photo, a beaver felt fedora is paired with a gun club jacket, twill shirt, cashmere necktie, silk square, flannel trousers and suede ankle boots. I would have added gloves and a scarf had conditions warranted.
Wear tweed when it sprinkles.
