I think that is where my fetish started Sir Brian with being made to wear my pakamac to school. My mum always insisted i had iyt with me folded in my pocket. She used to make fasten it up even if only looking like rain. I was not aware but my hair was kept in a girly style and one day she produced a rain mate for me as the coats had no hood. I felt so embarrased often crying and begging not be made to wear it, but she made me. I was also one of the last boys to wear wear short pants at school. I used to like the mac rubbing on my legs. I often wonder if she knew that it excited me being told what to do and wear. I still do. curtsy from jenny
Buying a new mac is so exciting and, Maid Jenny, it is lovely of you to share your joy with us. I was really lucky, earlier this year, in that I was able to secure two boy's genuine plastic Pakamacs, obviously too small to wear, but lovely to have them. They are an exciting reminder of how beautiful and sexy these macs were.
Hope you are all enjoying your macs and rainwear-they are one of the few things that are keeping us sane in these trying times.
My new long green delta plus raincoat has arrived, it is quite heavy with a lovely smell.
At last i am getting to go for walks in my plastic raincoat, i love the sound of rain on my mac.
I’ve just seen a Pakamac label for a woman’s plastic Pakamac of the style ALMA.
However, the size seems to be a W
Does anybody know what that equates to nowadays?
Hi Brian thanks I will do that regards to you.
Just like Brian I am wearing my noisy rustly nylon overall and plastic apron to do my housework. Then I am going for a walk in my traditional navy plastic (jeantex) raincoat. I also wear my portwest mac at times. pvc.u.like is also a good place for raincoats, and shiny mac.

Do persevere with e-bay, all of you, there are some real gems there.
Old friend, do try the nylon macs retailed by Stay Dry rainwear, in both navy and black, very reasonably priced. You won't be disappointed. I am just addicted to buying them, and have about 50 so far, and will, no doubt be buying more. I am, in fact wearing one at this very moment. I love going out in them too. Relaxing, comfortable, breathable, noisy, and beautifully exciting, in the best Pakamac tradition. I recommend them to all of you as the perfect antidote to the trials and tribulations of this modern society.
Hi Rob hope you both enjoyed the experience more rain today hopefully this lockdown will ease before to long then you can get away somewhere.
Yes we were today!
Hi Rob no holidays with this lockdown as yet hope you are still wearing your macs shame nylon Macs have disappeared from the shops only seem to be used ones on eBay still I live in hope.

Yes, Marks and Spencer did sell lightweight nylon macs from the mid 60’s. My mum bought a navy blue example that she wore regularly through to the early ‘70’s. The early ones, like my mums had a pocket on either side with a flap covering. I loved this mac, and still get a buzz when I see a nylon mac being worn.
Hello, would anyone here care to discuss a real interest in Pakamacs, as well as other things involving plastic, but discussed especially from a male perspective, for I have no interest in cross dressing, I am sorry, but hope you will understand
What ever happened to Constance & others Rob and his wife miss them all
It was lovely to be able to see so many of Madam Susans raincoats, and thank you for being understanding about my excitement (blush). curtsy from jenny
i know mac /mackintoshes are called rainwear .but that does not mean they cannot be worn out in dry weather or indoors,
whilst they are good for keeping out the rain mackintoshes are for pleasure.
Yes Sir I do wear as often as I can but got to close curtains lol. I hope you like the pics.

Oh,Jenny, do get used to wearing your macs indoors, where you can enjoy them to the full, with no one watching! And thanks for your second e-mail. I will be in touch, and I hope we can share much more.
Hello, I never thought it possible to get plastic raincoat with drawl symtoms. I am also wishing for the dark nights and rain. I have just received an olive green knee length mac I got from e bay.

I have to admit that I haven’t yet put on one of my lovely macs during lockdown. The weather has been amazing all the time, hardly any rain. That of course is no excuse. However, I have been immersed, looking through newspaper archives, in a world of mackintoshes while looking at old adverts and reading the many articles devoted to rainwear, from past decades. What an amazing mackintosh world is there, in the past.
What has struck me is something Hugh talked about regarding the word macs or mackintoshes. I have noticed that in adverts, rainwear was mainly referred to as ‘macs’. In articles etc., they were mainly referred to as ‘mackintoshes’.
I really should put on a mackintosh next time I resume my reading.
Wonderful to see you post again Brian.
lock down has good points when at home all day spend good part of day in a mackintosh. as is my rule up till the end of may never go out unless have a mackintosh on
MaidJenny, your post is beautifully exciting-there is more than a possibility that you have an original plastic Pakamac from the 50s/60s. If so, we must share our experiences, with a possible view to meeting. I have not posted anything for some time, but please scroll down to see my earlier posts. I have sent you an e-mail, but am not sure whether or not you will receive it.
In these ridiculous times, wearing plastic, nylon and rubber macs are one of the few things that make absolute sense. I must try and renew my regular stream of posts. There are some wonderful people here-Susan, Beverley, to name but two. And such a rich variety of waterproof experiences, and rainwear "love stories". There is absolutely no end to the variations on the Pakamac theme. May this website long continue. Best wishes to everyone.
i am 77 when a boy had strange feelings about pakamacs boys thought macs of anykind were sissy so i would not wear one.yet in secret longed to wear one.got one when teen but only grey for boys from early days love to see girls in pakamacs. now have my own collection got my yellow one on now curtsy beverly.
I have just found this site. My love of macs goes back a long way. I have gents macs for trips out, but I like to wear my ladies pink pvc u like on a night usually over my nightie. I am email@example.com , curtsy from jenny
