Well Mr Doudy, I hope you wear your nylon pakamac fully buttoned up, and perhaps, as a treat, your plastic mackintosh on top.

To answer maid Jenny's question I do still indeed enjoy wearing a vintage Pakamac. I have one in black opaque plastic with plastic buttons and another navy blue nylon pakamac, very plain, knee length with 4 buttons to the collar. Both are men's macs, buttoning the men's way; I admit I'd be self conscious being seen in public in what was obviously a ladies mac!

I too was one of those boys who was made to wear a plastic pakamac for any occasion other than travel too and from school, to conserve my expensive regulation school gabardine. I started at an age when, still in grey short trousers, I could enjoy the feel of the plastic brushing against my legs. In later years, up to age 18, I'd revert to short trousers at weekends and holidays to continue enjoying that feeling!

No one had any nice walks in all the rain we have been having lately. I have not seen many in leeds just the nylon type.

Yes Scooter i have just been outside wearing my bonnet underneath my plastic mac with the hood up. I had to get home as it was so exciting.

Hi, it’s the weather for wearing rain mates, I pop a plastic accordion folding one, it’s plain with the cloth ties. It’s brilliant and keeps you dry, nobody bothers. Go for it Maid Jenny.

I have since manage ged to get some rain bonnets, but not dared wear outside, maybe when i get made to lol. I often go for a mac walk around roundhay park in leeds, come say hello. I do prefer to chat on skype before real time.

As this long drawn out shielding comes to a close, anyone else, like me, looking forward to meeting up with fellow lover of mackintoshes?

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.

Comment by: maidjenny on 1st July 2020 at 03:58

At last i am getting to go for walks in my plastic raincoat, i love the sound of rain on my mac.

Comment by: Susan on 17th June 2020 at 16:25

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?

Comment by: Old friend on 13th June 2020 at 07:39

Hi Brian thanks I will do that regards to you.

Comment by: maidjenny on 12th June 2020 at 12:20

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. is also a good place for raincoats, and shiny mac.

Do persevere with e-bay, all of you, there are some real gems there.

Comment by: Brian Humphries on 11th June 2020 at 20:35

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.

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.

Comment by: Plastic Pakamac on 28th May 2020 at 14:56

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

Plastic Pakamac.
