The Emergency Raincoat

Nau’s Palm Pullover

If you’re anywhere on the east coast, you’re going to see quite a bit of rain this weekend. And you’re going to want to be equipped.

Our comprehensive guide can be found here, but for a more recent option, check out Nau’s Palm Pullover. It’s a synthetic take on the hoodie that’s light enough to be folded up in the bottom of a briefcase, or a desk drawer, or a glove compartment. When the inevitable happens, you’ll be able to keep your powder dry—along with your phone and, most importantly, your hair.

And since it happens to be on sale, now’s the time to pick it up. As for what you’ll do once you get inside…we’ll get to that in a minute.

Staying Loose


Cardigans have been getting slimmer lately, but we still prefer our pullovers thin and loose. Preferably with stripes.

This Lars Andersson knit just landed at Blackbird, and it does just about everything right. The fit hugs the torso but eases off around the sleeves, leaving it with a casual, drapey feeling. Meanwhile, the loose-gauge cotton makes it light enough that it’s as much t-shirt as sweater, and we can imagine breaking it out as early as September.

Andersson has a few cardigans on offer too, but this kind of fit doesn’t need buttons cluttering it up.
